Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) is shaking out there right now.
The August 5 episode of Gossip Girl featured the first OG star to return to the recently revived series. We’re talking about, of course Yin Chang Return to her role as Nelly Yuki. The new episode introduces us to Nelly at a Halloween party that features literal Blair, Chuck, Serena, and Dan costumes.
We don’t know about you, but going to a party where kids are dressed like our high school counterparts sounds like a twisted circle of hell to us.
As fans of the original series well know, Nelly was once one of Blair’s most loyal minions before turning on the Constance Billiards Queen Bee by expelling her and stealing her place at Yale. The last time we saw Nelly she was a reporter for Women’s Wear Daily, writing about Blair’s excommunication from Waldorf Designs.
Fast forward to the latest episode of the HBO Max reboot that has Nelly now an editor for New York Magazine.
