Entertainment Tonight.As the countdown continues toward Monday's highly anticipated new episode of TLC's "Jon & Kate Plus 8," ET has learned new information about what the dynamic will be like between Jon Gosselin and his estranged wife, Kate.

ET has learned that although viewers will see Jon and Kate together, they will be separated -- sitting on two adjacent chairs, rather than sharing a couch.

In the episode, Kate will try to pitch a tent for the first time with the help of one of her daughters.

Jon, who has recently grabbed headlines for his alleged new relationships, will attempt to make pizza in the family's kitchen.

As for how the show will handle the new people that may be in the lives of Jon and Kate, ET has learned that they will take it on a case by case basis.
