It’s that stressful time of year when Constance Billard and St. Jude’s students find out who is and isn’t worthy of early admission to Yale University.
Meanwhile, Serena van der Woodsen bonds with her new Shakespeare teacher, Rachel (guest star Laura Breckenridge), who has no clue what kind of wrath she's about to incur after giving Blair Waldorf the first B of her private school career.
Chuck teams up with an unlikely ally in his war with Jack (guest star Desmond Harrington) over Bass Industries, while Nate and Vanessa spend a romantic night at the opera.
