Gossip Girl Episode Synopsis: "The Fasting and the Furious"

at .

"The Fasting and the Furious" is Gossip Girl's fifth episode of the fall, and its most hilariously named installment of Season Five by far, as the play on words also incorporates events of a particular Jewish holiday.

In the midst of celebrating Yom Kippur with family and friends, Blair and Louis find themselves in a power struggle with Louis' family, according to the CW's official synopsis of the October 24 episode.

Cyrus and Eleanor Picture

A Jewish holiday must mean the return of Cyrus. It must. We hope.

Meanwhile, Serena's boss (guest star Michael Michele) puts her in the awkward position of choosing between her new job and her relationship with Dan, and Diana prepares to debut the New York Spectator.

An unfortunate last-minute surprise delays the launch, however, and Diana expects her intern / plaything Nate to do whatever it takes to save the day. Poor Nate. Always somebody's pawn. Can he pull it off?

[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.
