Season 6, Episode 7 “Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell”

By Nerdy Spice

Audrey is seen with a microphone in a crowd of people, her mouth open and her eyes closed.

Audrey’s Downward Spiral continues in spectacular fashion in this episode.

What also continues is Joey and Eddie’s never-ending melodrama. Joey is being weirdly “tactful” (read: condescendingly coy) about Hetson’s class, worried that it’ll upset Eddie, but now that they’re all hot and heavy he doesn’t take offense. I guess the making out put him in a better mood. Which is good. Joey, for her part, claims she feels smart now that she’s free of Eddie’s “snarky feedback.” Yes, Joey. It’s called “negging” and it’s designed to make you feel like shit so you’ll make out with him, and it worked, so why bother coming to class anymore?

Season 6, Episode 4 “Instant Karma!”

By Janes

Since this episode is called “Instant Karma,” complete with an exclamation point, I had high hopes that Dawson would actually experience, um–karma–for his dickish behavior as of late. But this is a white man we’re talking about, so it’s more like “vague threat of consequences before everything returns to the status quo.” Continue reading →

The Great Dawson’s Creek Rewatch Project: Season 6, Episodes 1-3

Welcome to the last season of our Dawson’s rewatch! We have no idea what we’re going to do with our lives when this is over, but before that happens, there is so much to talk about!

For season 6, we’ll be adding to our drinking game rules. Take a shot:

  • Every time Professor Hetson negs Joey
  • Every time Eddie negs Joey
  • Every time Nerdy Spice melts down in Pacey-Joey shipper rage like she’s twelve years old.
  • Every mention of Pacey’s facial hair.
  • Every time Pacey suddenly becomes a misogynist.
  • Every time Dawson and Joey talk about how much they Hurt Each Other.

Season 5, Episode 22 “The Abby”

By Janes

Screen Shot 2018-09-25 at 11.23.14 AM

I haven’t rewatched this episode in forever, because I have this visceral response to Alex Pearl’s Duane-from-Annie-Hall moment. So there’s a lot that I forgot, and all of it is batshit insane. Professor Wilder comes back?? I had no idea. Joey’s terrible story about her kiss with Dawson got into the school literary magazine?? Ha. There’s no way the literati at Fake-Harvard would even suffer through reading that thing. Creeper actually goes into Joey’s bedroom, closes the door, and gives her a too-long hug? Okay, that’s not actually super shocking for this show, but it’s shocking for all of sane America. At least they don’t make out again, or I would have had to go all Sarah Paulson-circa-Coven on my eyeballs. Continue reading →

In a sunny room, Pacey holds Audrey up by the waist while she laughs and grabs his hand.

Season 5, Episode 19 “100 Light Years From Home”

By Nerdy Spice

So, this was the 100th episode of Dawson’s Creek. When it aired, I still wasn’t yet watching it in real time (it took me till the middle of season 6 to catch on, because I’m very very slow), but I was a major Gilmore Girls fan, and I remember how the WB was just covered in ads for this big event, which turns out to be surprisingly inconsequential: the main story is that the gang-minus-Dawson go to Florida for spring break. (On the other hand, M2M, the underrated gem of the early aughts, shows up and sings. That’s pretty awesome. I’d almost call it event TV.)

OK, fine, there is one thing of significance. Dawson and Joey have a Grand Good-bye! Oh wait… that happens so often that we have a shot for it. So never mind.

Season 5, Episode 16 “In A Lonely Place”

By Janes

Ugh, Joey kisses Creeper again???? I knew that she kissed him once, but the subsequent makeouts were totally Eternal Sunshine’d out of my memory. Continue reading →

Professor Wilder, wearing a coat and tie, holds out his elbow and Joey holds it in her hand, wearing a winter jacket, scarf, and gloves. Both are looking at each other and smiling.

Season 5, Episode 13 “Something Wilder”

By Nerdy Spice

Well, this episode is named after Professor Creeper, so… I have concerns. And they are fully borne out by the events to come.
