Thanksgiving on the Upper East Side is always something of a mixed bag of giblets. Sometimes, the children of Gossip Girl give thanks for not knowing about their parents’ creepy pasts, and sometimes boxes of porn show up. Rivalries are formed over sparkling and dissolved with the pass of a cranberry sauce. It looks like Season 6, Episode 8 “It’s Really Complicated,” will be rich on the gravy and the drama. Here’s the official synopsis for the episode, which airs December 3 at 9PM ET/PT:
Serena (Blake Lively) and Dan (Penn Badgley) decide to throw their first Thanksgiving together, inviting only their closest friends, but everyone seems to have their own agenda for attending. Feeling defeated by his father, Chuck (Ed Westwick) begins a downward spiral, leaving Blair (Leighton Meester) to find a solution to his problems. Meanwhile, Dan has written his latest exposé, but he must make a tough decision whether to publish it, knowing it could destroy a close friendship.
