When Gossip Girl Returns ...

at .

April 18.

That date feels like an eternity way after last night's Gossip Girl, an episode that in many ways redeemed the past 5-6. "Empire of the Son" saw all of the story lines set in motion this winter come to a head, culminating in an epic kiss and major cliffhanger.

So what's next?! Here's our first look ...

In the episode, titled "The Kids Stay in the Picture," and the weeks that follow, there are many questions to be answered, relationships to be explored, wagons to be circled and - hopefully - OMG moments that will remind us why we love this show so much.

Share your predictions and hopes for the rest of the season below.
