Only two episodes remain in Gossip Girl Season 2... get ready for the craziest episode ever!

Tonight at 8 PM, we'll go back to the land of fanny packs and parachute pants. In a flashback to the 80s, 17-year-old Lily Rhodes (Brittany Snow) gets kicked out of boarding school and runs away to Los Angeles, reconnecting with her parents, Rick (Andrew McCarthy) and Cece (guest star Cynthia Watros, Lost), and sister, Carol (Krysten Ritter).

Meanwhile, back in present day, Blair (Leighton Meester) and Nate (Chace Crawford) attend prom together, but the evening doesn't turn out exactly as planned, and Chuck (Ed Westwick) has a little something to do with that. Serena (Blake Lively) and Lily (Kelly Rutherford) don't see eye-to-eye over Serena's recent run-in with the law.

No Doubt will make a guest performance in the episode as an 80s band called "Snowed Out."

Check out 6 sneak peeks from "Valley Girls," spoilers about Rufus and Lily's lovechild, news about the Nair/Chair issue, and more!

Update! MAJOR Spoilers contained in these videos!
Props to the Canadian viewer who posted these clips (Gossip Girl airs a day early up north). Do not watch if you don't want to be spoiled!

The latest from Kristen over at E! Online:

The spawn of Lily and Rufus is here!

chrisriggi.jpgYoung actor Chris Riggi will appear in the Gossip Girl finale as Scott, the long-lost love child of Lily (Kelly Rutherford) and Rufus (Matthew Settle), sources confirm to us exclusively.

Yep, on-again, off-again couple Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) and Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) will soon come face-to-face with their half-brother, with whom they each share a parent. As Cyrus Rose might say: Oy.

Q: What can you tell us about the Gossip Girl finale?
Chuck and Blair! What else is there to say? OK, how about that the spawn of Rufus and Lily will be played by an unknown--extrapolate from that what you will about said spawn's future on the show. (Of course, nobody had ever heard of Jessica Szohr before G.G., and now she's a big star with endorsement deals and everything.)

Q: Does Serena do any damage to Gossip Girl when she tries to out her in the G.G. finale?
No, not really. Gossip Girl escapes Serena's attack relatively unscathed--but then again, nobody effs with Kristen Bell and gets away with it. (Except Sylar.) Oooh! Speaking of Kristen Bell, she is magnificent as Uta of Valhalla Catering in the Party Down finale, and there's an opening at the very end for her to recur in the likely (but not assured) second season. Yay!

Q: I know it's not really called Lily, but is there anything new to spill on the spinoff?

Kelly Rutherford shared an awesome-sounding bit of info on the tentatively titled show: "I just went in recently did a bit of a voice-over, like a Wonder Years kind of thing where I'm looking back on my life. I don't know if they'll use it, but I was able to see some of it, and it looked fantastic." There you have it! Gossip Girl plus Wonder Years equals amazing!

From EW's Michael Ausiello:

Q: Any new scoop on Gossip Girl?

A: One relationship won't survive prom night.
