at . Comments

After all the drama from last night's show, Gossip Girl is building toward one heck of an episode before it goes off the air for six weeks beginning February 28.

Next week, Russell Thorpe is determined to destroy Chuck, but risks alienating Raina, and the fledgling maybe-romance of Dan and Blair reaches a critical juncture.

Meanwhile, a couple of new parental forces emerge: Ben's mother causes issues between Ben and Serena, while William returns to the Upper East Side as well.
