In next week’s Gossip Girl, Serena tries to help out Carter by playing poker, Hillary Duff returns, Gina Torres joins the cast as Vanessa’s mother and Blair and Vanessa dress up, old-Hollywood style. We’ve got a promo for you, along with two sneak peeks and promo photos.
HILARY DUFF GUEST STARS – Vanessa (Jessica Szohr), hoping to finally win her mother Gabriela’s (guest star Gina Torres) approval, desperately vies with Blair (Leighton Meester) for the honor of delivering the freshman toast at NYU, but at what price? Dan (Penn Badgley) invites Olivia (guest star Hilary Duff) to meet Rufus (Matthew Settle) and Lily (Kelly Rutherford), which leads to all sorts of problems for the new couple. Serena (Blake Lively) and Nate (Chace Crawford) team up to help Carter Baizen (guest star Sebastian Stan). Taylor Momsen and Ed Westwick also star.
