First, an unfortunate Gossip Girl scheduling note: The next episode will not air until March. We've read conflicting accounts (March 2 or March 9), but it won't air before then.
The synopsis for the next new episode (2.18), "Blair Waldorf's Day Off," is as follows:
Chuck Bass is having trouble dealing with the mystery that was his father and the way in which his spare time was managed.
Nate Archibald catches Vanessa flirting with another guy, and at a moment of desperation, reluctantly turns to Blair for help.
Dan Humphrey purposely ignores Serena's calls and tells Miss Carr that things are beyond complicated between the two of them.
Meanwhile, Miss Carr chooses not to take her job back at Constance and spends most of her time in an empty apartment with her new fling, who doesn't seem to be quite grieving from his recent break-up.
At the same time, Lily and Rufus question where their relationship is going and talk casually about merging their households. Chuck however, is against the idea, and does everything in his power to stop it.
Also,Blair and Nate have a little reunion kiss *sighs,tears up,and gets angry*
