While romantic tensions were in overdrive in Gossip Girl’s November 7 last night’s episode, “I Am Number Nine,” there was oneee section of the Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) love triangle noticeably silent on the mess ― number nine himself, Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley)! So what’s become of their sorta-whimsical, old movie-lovin’ ‘ship? Has Blair lost sight of the good guy that’s still, you know, totally enamored with her?

Fear not, Dair fans! We have heard the news and the news is GOOD!

E! Online reports that this controversial pairing is set to reunite! Executive producer Joshua Safran says that Dan won’t have any other love interests any time soon, and that Blair will find herself rethinking her strong stance against the idea of their being together...

Intriiiiiiguing, no? We’ve seen photos of Blair’s upcoming shower, we’ve seen photos from her ill-fated bachelorette party and we’ve heard the wedding of her dreams will be the 100th episode! WHERE DOES DAN FIT IN? How long can B take us (and Louis!) for this “will they/won’t they” ride, darnit! Oh my...

In other news, Diana’s (Elizabeth Hurley) fierce warning to Charlie last night over laying claim to Nate apparently won’t stick too well once the whole world ― okay, maybe just the UES, but it IS the whole world so far as GG is concerned, c’mon! ― finds out who Charlie is.As confirmed before, that great plan by Ivy (Kaylee DeFer) and Carol is going to keep her in the place she seems to love most these days, right by Nate’s (Chace Crawford) side. (Does that mean she’ll also make the wedding party??)

With Diana’s media empire on its way up in the ranks, it’ll finally be time for Gossip Girl to defend herself against the newcomer. What form that may take remains to be seen, but with Serena willingly involving herself in the wackiness that is the NY Spectator (how is everyone falling for this nutty Diana woman?!), we imagine it might be a bit of a FIGHT! And let’s face it, we’re allllll about a good GG-style battle, and this one could be HUGE...
