Ep 01: YES, THEN ZERO
In the fifth season premiere, Serena loves her new job in Hollywood, but makes a costly misstep when she tries to impress her boss (recurring guest star MICHAEL MICHELE -- ER, Homicide: Life on the Street, Ali). Chuck and Nate arrive in Los Angeles as the last stop of their trip around the globe, joining Serena at a glamorous Hollywood Hills party, where Nate meets a sexy older woman (recurring guest star ELIZABETH HURLEY). Meanwhile, Blair and Louis (recurring guest star HUGO BECKER) return from Monaco and begin planning their royal wedding, but when Louis refuses to stand up to his family and support Blair's choices, his weakness threatens their relationship. Plus, a magazine is planning to run an excerpt of Dan's book until an unlikely ally steps in to help him kill the story.
