gossip girl dowry 'Gossip Girl' clip: Billy Baldwin returns and Georgina gets her scheme onThe most recent “Gossip Girl” episode was a major game-changer across the board on the Upper East Side. Not only has Blair decided to explore her new feelings for Dan, but Cece, Serena’s grandmother, succumbed to her illness and died, surrounded by her family, in the final moments of the hour.

The family’s reunion also brought together Lola (Ella Rae Peck) and Ivy (Kaylee Defer), who had been impersonating Lola for a year. Awkward!

In Monday’s new episode, the two Charlotte Rhodes meet again at the Van Der Woodsen home, during what we’re assuming is Cece’s memorial reception. Now that it’s been revealed that Carol (Sheila Kelley), Charlotte’s mother, was orchestrating the scheme for trust fund access, everything has become clear, right?

Not so much. As Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg) tells the girls in the Zap2it exclusive clip below, money is only the beginning of the story. Watch the clip and find out how our favorite evil Gossip Girl mastermind begins to manipulate the Charlottes — and Serena’s father, William (Billy Baldwin) — in yet another one of her schemes.

We’re left with two questions. First off, who in the world invited Georgina to this sad event? And second… what’s happening with Dan and Blair?
