Gossip Girl Season 6 Spoilers: New Details on How Dan’s Book Will Hurt “Everybody”
Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) has a lot of feelings — dangerous feelings. He’s fixin’ to be the James Franco of the Upper East Side, and he’s written an explosive second memoir using real names of people involved in real scandals. No one is safe — not even his own father, as we saw in Gossip Girl Season 6, Episode 3: “Dirty Rotten Scandals.” So, how will the proverbial sh*t continue to hit the oscillating UES fan for the rest of the season?
“Dan as a power player is going to affect everybody. The way that we’re doing the chapters is a character at a time, so each chapter will be a character. Some episodes it will be there, some episodes it won’t. And of course, there will be twists and turns within that. But how he’s releasing it is chapter by chapter of characters. The fallout, unlike his original book, where he didn’t use real names, it keeps building with each chapter that comes out.
So far, we’ve only seen Rufus (Matthew Settle) targeted by Dan’s vengeful tome. Who’s next? Will Dan’s possibleromantic reunion with Serena (Blake Lively) get in the way of his quest to tell all? Sara adds another revealing bit of information: “For us, the final season we really were trying to go back and tell our own multigenerational stories, in terms of Lily and Bart, Rufus and Ivy, and Eleanor and Cyrus – and the core group. Are the kids going to become their parents?”
