Us Rating: ***

With dramas about the scandalous rich back in vogue (hello, Revenge!), it's time to check in with the genre's gold standard. Good news: GG has maintained its tension and wit. This week, Blair (Leighton Meester), preparing to wed her Monacan prince, expects Serena (Blake Lively) to toss a bridal shower supreme or else! An enjoyable mix of tenderness and snark ensues. And when lovelorn Dan (Penn Badgley) gets drunk at the fete, the fallout is dishy -- and moving. (CW, 8 p.m.)
