Starting on Monday, May 11th, the folks at the CW Network are getting out their fancy Clothes as two of their hit series get ready to go to the prom and one prepares for a wedding!
The festivities start on Monday May 11th at 8PM EST in a Gossip Girl episode titled, Valley Girl. Blair (Leighton Meester) and Nate (Chace Crawford) attend prom together, but run into interference from Chuck (Ed Westwick) and the evening goes decidedly awry for them. While things are not working out as planned for Blair and Nate, Lily Rhodes has a flashback to the 80s where her seventeen year old self (Brittany Snow) has been kicked out of boarding school and runs away to Los Angeles where she hooks up with her parents, Rick (Andrew McCarthy) and Cece (guest star Cynthia Watros, "Lost"), and sister, Carol (Krysten Ritter). Special musical guest is the 80’s group No Doubt who are appearing in the episode as ‘Snowed Out’ and will be debuting their cover of Adam Ant’s Stand and Deliver.
At 9PM EST, One Tree Hill in an episode titled Forever and Almost Always, Peyton (Hilarie Burton) and Lucas’ (Chad Michael Murray) wedding day has finally arrived and surprise guests attend. Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) plays an unexpected role in the ceremony while Nathan (James Lafferty) hopes to be called up to the NBA. Skills (Antwon Tanner) keeps Jamie (Jackson Brundage) on a short leash, and Brooke (Sophia Bush) does the same with Nick Lachey (appearing as himself).
On Tuesday May 12th at 9PM EST 90210 is going to the prom as well. In an episode titled Zero Tolerance, Students at West Beverly prepare to go all out for the prom, Annie (Shenae Grimes), Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes), Naomi (AnnaLynn McCord), and Silver(Jessica Stroup) set out to get glam up by shopping for the perfect gowns and visiting a famous hair stylist.
It’s the time of the year where the networks and fans gather together in an annual dance of Save our Show-itist. Everyone is stressed and upset at the unsettled nature of everything – is Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles gone? What’s going on with Chuck, Reaper, etc. Instead of wasting energy being worried about things we have little control over, let’s appreciate the programs that survived. I thought it’s time to take stock and see what “genre” shows are in no danger of being cancelled. I’ll start by saying for some reason Navy NCIS is still going. Who watches this show?
Betrayals, Past Lovers, Family ties and Blackmail. Gossip Girl has it all in the episode ‘The Grandfather’ airing tonight on the CW network at 8PM EST. Devastated by the recent plot twist in her life, Blair (Leighton Meester) turns her back on her predictable Waldorf existence in favor of a more wild and unpredictable lifestyle, causing Serena (Blake Lively) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) to have serious concerns about their friend. Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) convinces Nate (Chace Crawford) that it may be time to forgive and forget when it comes to his mother’s Kennedyesque family, The Vanderbilts, who abandoned Nate and his mother when they needed them most. In a misguided effort to be completely honest with each other, Lily (Kelly Rutherford) and Rufus (Matthew Settle) agree to share lists of their past lovers.
Check out the Gossip Girl Stills for The Grandfather.
Then next up on the CW Network at 9PM EST it’s a brand new episode of One Tree Hill.
