Gossip Girl is all about high fashion and glamour, so it’s natural for Serena (Blake Lively) and Blair (Leighton Meester) to spend their summer in the City of Light. ”Paris is burning, and Serena and Blair lit the match,” says exec producer Stephanie Savage. ”Serena is avoiding her Nate [Chace Crawford] and Dan [Penn Badgley] issues by dating up a storm and doing lots of shopping. Blair goes to Paris with the intention of trying to get over Chuck [Ed Westwick].” Unfortunately, the dapper Mr. Bass, last seen suffering from a gunshot wound on the streets of Prague, has recovered with a new girlfriend, Eva (Clémence Poésy). ”The first time [Chuck and Blair] see each other is in Paris,” says Westwick. ”She drives by in a taxi and they both turn around and see each other. It’s one of those moments where it’s like, ‘What the f—?”’ Or, in GG terms, OMFG! SEPT. 13
