Excerpt from "Spoiler Chat: Who Is Jack's Baby Mama on Lost?"
Melody in North Hollywood, Calif.: What's the latest with Serena's dad on Gossip Girl?
I just talked to Stephanie Savage and will bring you couples scoop in a jiffy! In the meantime, "When you think about the Humphreys and Van Der Woodsens and that extended family that they have, [Serena's father] coming back really lands on everybody in a great way. It definitely causes drama for Serena and Eric and the other kids, and there's an adult component with Rufus and Lily, because there's some backstory there." And according to Matthew Settle, Billy Baldwin as Papa van der Woodsen is a great addition to Gossip Girl. Settle told us at the G-Star Raw event in New York City: "It's a great love triangle. Billy's got a great energy; he's a good actor. It's believable that he would be Serena's father, and he's a great fit for the show. It's really good casting."
Gregory in Minneapolis, Minn.: Will Rufus and Lily's son Scott be around when Gossip Girl returns?
We've seen the last of Scott for now, Stephanie said. "[He's] done for this season, but he can absolutely come back next season."
