Nate (Chace Crawford) and Raina (Tika Sumpter), who rarely leave the Empire, currently seem far removed from the main Chuck-Blair-Dan-Prince Louis arc. Will their tryst ever join the dominant “love square” plot line? Gossip Girl producer Josh Safran assured E! Online that the couple will get involved.

“Nate continues his relationship with Raina, and he's very much folded into that story,” Josh revealed. “And Vanessa [Jessica Szohr] tries to get back in the good graces of everybody, and we'll see she'll end up trying larger and larger things until there is one very very big thing that will happen that changes things."

What could that be? We can’t wait to find out!
