Blair (Leighton Meester) tries to speed up her rise to becoming a powerful woman but ends up spreading herself too thin. Serena (Blake Lively) is torn between her family and Ben (guest star David Call). While Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Lily (Kelly Rutherford) still have not reconciled after Lily's betrayal. Chace Crawford and Penn Badgley also star.
