Episode Title
Memoirs of an Invisible Dan

Dan never intended to publish a novel that cruelly satirized his friends and family. Charlie was practically forced to assume the identity of an Upper East Side trust-funder. Serena didn’t know that her high school reputation as a Champagne-swilling Lolita would haunt her into adulthood. The cast members of Gossip Girl may not make their own beds, but they nonetheless must lie in them, and in last night’s episode, everyone was lying in bed alone.
