'Gossip Girl': The 'itch' is back

What "itch" would that be, you ask? The one that starts with a B.

While Monday's (April 26) "Gossip Girl" promises to be a Blair-light hour -- the episode focuses mostly on the return of Serena's ( Blake Lively) estranged dad ( William Baldwin) and her relationship issues with Nate ( Chace Crawford), which a conniving Jenny ( Taylor Momsen) is happy to exploit.

Next week, though, might be a different story. On May 3, Blair ( Leighton Meester) will pay a visit the campus of Columbia University, where she "realizes where she truly belongs." (Even though Columbia is on the Upper West Side.) If this marks a return to the power-hungry, scheming Blair, we're more than happy to see it. The milquetoast version we've seen for a lot of this season has been wearing on us, frankly.

"Gossip Girl" airs at 9 p.m. ET Mondays on The CW.
