Gossip Girl’s fifth season doesn’t begin until September 26, but with new, informative pictures from the set arriving every day, there’s more than enough material to make some educated guesses about upcoming plot points. So that’s exactly what we did! A quick catch-up: When we left off, Serena was spending the summer in Malibu interning for David O. Russell; single Chuck and Nate were off to party in a magical place where, we presume, STDs are noncommunicable; Blair was still with Prince Louis; and Vanessa had Dan’s UES manifesto Inside published anonymously. Click through to see what’s in store for this season, including new characters, a Nate-kissing Elizabeth Hurley, medical marijuana, and Game of Thrones.
