Ooh là là, Serena!

Looks like Gossip Girl's Carter Baizen (as played by Sebastian Stan, who kisses on Leighton Meester in real life) is getting very close to Blake Lively's Serena van der Woodsen. But many of you have written in expressing suspicion about this fella. Who is he...really? And can he be trusted in the company of our favorite Upper East Siders?

Read on to find out what sources close to the show reveal about Carter's future with the show:

Carter Baizen may or may not be the most reliable-seeming fellow, but even if you don't trust him, you'd better get used to him.

Sources tell us that Carter Baizen is a major figure in the first seven episodes of Gossip Girl season three, and while nothing's set it stone, it's likely that he will recur heavily throughout the season.

Gossip Girl returns Sept. 14 at 9 p.m. on the CW.
