Dan is about to be announced as author of "Inside" so he gives a copy of the book to Blair, Serena, Nate, Chuck and Rufus hoping they will be supportive at his upcoming book party. In the book, Dan described Serena as the "old Serena": drinking, dating teachers, being shallow, partying, reckless, and having random sex. Nate doesn't receive a character description, but is joined with Eric (a younger, gay character with political relatives). Chuck is the only one in the book whom is described as he really is: lonely, cynical, without friends or families. The book talks about Blair and Dan having sex, and when Louis reads it he says he can't trust Blair anymore. Blair is afraid she will have to raise the baby on her own if he leaves and finally tells Serena. Louis apologizes for his behavior and agrees to trust Blair. Even Rufus becomes angry and alienated with Dan when he says he had never regretted leaving the music industry to have a family, until upon reading the book, which portrays him as marrying Lily just for money. Meanwhile, Diana makes the connection of Ivy and Charlie being the same person and forces Charlie to work for her. Also, Serena's boss tells her to get the film rights for "Inside" and that she has only one week.
