This caused Charlie to believe his father held him responsible for his mother's death. If it weren't for Charlie, Bernie's beloved wife would still be alive. It was Charlie who killed her, Bernie must have thought. And that was why Bernie could never truly love Charlie.
It's good to know that he writes even worse than we thought, but I don't want to point and laugh because A) I'm still kind of basking in this nice Dan feeling, and B) it's all there on the page. I mean, what do you say? "This gives me heartburn, but no Scheißbedauern at all." Bart sits on Lily's couch where Eric came out to her and cries about the dude he BURNED TO DEATH, and the butler brings him the story, and the note says: "I'm so sorry. You should read this. Dan."

Well, he's not clear exactly and I don't really care, so the important thing is he calls her a piece of shit for about twenty minutes and she finally bounces and goes and cries in an alley, so you get to see her totally off the rails for what seems like the fiftieth anniversary of earlier in this episode when she freaked out the first time, and then you forget all about Jenny because Gossip Girl has decided it's time for a good old-fashioned cry for help. I can't even punctuate this for you because I don't understand what it means, but it's so deranged that it makes me feel lightheaded and woozy, like it's a magic spell that makes crazy:
