We’ve gotten this a million times.
It’s the pilot. When looking for plotholes, don’t look at the pilot. Pilots are filmed months before the 2nd episode.
Uhm, except Inside was some kind of diary story that wasn’t supposed to be seen by anybody but Dan… and Gossip Girl is public. And since the beginning. And his whole relationship with Serena takes a terrible, creepy, stalkerish turn?
If you were Gossip Girl would be acting all shocked and surprised IN YOUR OWN BEDROOM? I think not.
Dan being Gossip Girl is dumb, always has been and always will be.
Yeah that happens all the time with shows, not just Gossip Girl! They must have recast her, or Margaret wasn’t available time of shooting the pilot.
