Love it or hate it, Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley) is makin’ her way back to the Upper East Side in Gossip Girl Season 5, Episode 19, “It Girl, Interrupted,” and she’s bringing one mega-agenda with her!
In fact, executive producer Josh Safran reveals to TVGuide that Diana’s plan has not one but two parts.
Her main objective? Unmasking the real Gossip Girl! “That is definitely at the forefront of these episodes,” Josh says. “We will learn the secret that Gossip Girl has had on Diana.”
Please tell us it pertains to her photo stashed in the file on Bart Bass, because that thing came outta nowhere and then was dropped like a bad habit! Quit playing games with our hearts and minds, y’all.
The second part of Diana’s plan? Taking back the reins at The Spectator – while also trying to steal Nate’s (Chace Crawford) heart! (We might suggest she not come between Nate and his recently-bolstered editor-ego – you know, the one that fired Serena – but, uhh, best of luck to her).
What that might mean for Nate and his current lady-love Lola Charlie Rhodes (Ella Rae Peck) remains to be seen, though it gives us the feeling that the UES-eschewing Lols will have one more reason to head back to her simpler life in Brooklyn…
The bigger question: Is Diana setting herself up to be one of the TWO rumored take-downs happening by season’s end? (Our vote? Hope sooo!)
