Air Date: January 5, 2009 at 12:00 AM PST
A darkly brooding Chuck reappears after being MIA since his father's funeral, and his Uncle Jack arrives on the Upper East Side to talk some sense into him. Trying to forget her last encounter with Chuck, Blair focuses on gaining acceptance into the Colony Club, the most prestigious ladies club in the city. As Dan and Serena begin to explore rekindled feelings, Dan uncovers Rufus and Lily's secret and struggles over what to do with the shocking revelation. Jenny returns to Constance Billard and immediately takes on Penelope and her posse of mean girls, but no one is going down without a Gossip Girl–worthy fight.
