at . Comments

Old faces returning to stir up drama. Backstabbing. People getting drugged. Sexy role playing. If that doesn't get you pumped for the next Gossip Girl installment, what will?

We just posted a photo gallery from next week's all-new episode of Gossip Girl. Now we have the CW's first promo and two sneak previews from "The Empire Strikes Jack."

Here's the network's promo for the 16th episode of the season ...

In addition to taking its name from The Empire Strikes Back, one of the best films of all time, the episode title refers to Jack Bass' attempted Empire Hotel coup. Will he prevail?

Looks like it doesn't take Chuck long to find out that he's been scammed by his uncle and (alleged mother). In the first sneak preview clip, our man is escorted off the premises.

Follow the jump to see a tease of that scene, as well as a second clip in which Jenny mends fences with Eleanor Waldorf, only to discover she'll be working with (gulp) Agnes again.

Man, these Upper East Side nemeses die hard ...

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
