During the weekend, Blair, Nate, Dan, Chuck decide to travel to New Haven, Connecticut to interview for early applications for Yale University. After Blair and Serena get into another argument over the hyper-competitive Blair's wanting more in life, Serena decides to get even with Blair by going to Yale instead of going to Brown as planned, and she easily charms the Dean of Yale's private invitation to the campus. Meanwhile, Dan discovers that none of his recommendation letters for Yale were sent, so he tries to figure out a way of getting into the school. Also, Chuck is kidnapped by a secret society, called Skull and Bones, to recruit him for their secret group in which his father was also a member. Also, Nate hooks up with a attractive co-ed. Back in New York, Jenny continues to fall more into her new job as an intern designer while Rufus worries about this path which will take his daughter.

. This is impossible as The Tudors
is a historical drama only covering the reign of Henry VIII (1509-1547); Pope Pius XI was canonized as a saint in 1935. See more

You don't think I came all the way here without a backup answer do you? Oh and it's a real crowd pleaser, it's gonna kill.
