The Great Dawson’s Creek Rewatch Project: Season 3, Episodes 1-3

We’re rewatching all of Dawson’s Creek in honor of its twentieth anniversary. Will require some mind-numbing. Drinking game rules can be found here.

We’ve updated our rules for season 3 to include a couple new ones:

  • One shot every time Dawson gets called a “hero.”
  • One shot every time men blame women for their problems.
  • One shot every time Pacey refers to Joey as a woman or “Joay.”

Season 3, Episode 1 “Like a Virgin”

By Nerdy Spice

I am SO EXCITED to be in season 3. This is it: the best part. As I press “Play” I can hardly wait to see my favorite season. I’m ready for hours upon hours of Pacey/Joey cuteness.

And then…

The episode starts, and we’re on a bus to Cape Cod with Dawson and a “saucy,” “sexy” blonde named Eve, and all of my excitement momentarily deflates.

So basically, his plotline is itself a meta reference. Shot! Continue reading →

Jen sits in the foreground looking sad and damp; Joey and Dawson, in formalwear, stand side-by-side looking at her in the background.

2×19 “Abby Morgan, Rest In Peace”

By Nerdy Spice

In this episode, everyone deals with the most awkward kind of death: the death of a person you really didn’t like.

Dawson and Joey are fresh off their wedding make-out sesh when they find out about Abby’s death. Joey, of course, immediately begins to think of her mom. Joey has repressed her feelings about her mom’s death for three years, which a) explains why she’s constantly mentioning it at inappropriate times since she hasn’t worked through it and b) explains why she represses all her other strong feelings, ya know, like her love for Pacey next season.
