515 - Downtown Crossing

Last week, we noted that "Downtown Crossing" was divisive, but we didn't hear from anyone defending the episode... please let us know if you did like it! We're genuinely curious! At this point, we're just so tired of Joey's storylines this season and want to get back into the soapiness of the rest of the gang.

That having been said... we still had to talk about this episode. This crazy, crazy episode.

From Traci: "I keep trying to find the reasons for this episode happening. I know we say a couple times in the podcast this week that we never hear about this storyline again, but I know that's not entirely true because Joey does acknowledge that she was mugged later in season 5... but it was like they started trying to do something here with how the trauma of what Mike Potter did to the family is still affecting Joey even in her college years... but then they didn't. I don't know. What happened here."

From Charles: "Another thought abo…

514 - Guerrilla Filmmaking

It's nice to see the group making a movie again, with Dawson in the director's chair. Even if the movie is...confusing. But at least Oliver takes direction (semi-)well and Audrey gets a chance to star in a film. We could do with less Charlie, but it is what it is.

We're curious: What do you all think about Joey "giving permission" to Audrey and Pacey?

Also, as mentioned at the top of this week's episode: there won't be a new episode next week! Sorry for any confusion!

513 - Something Wilder

Charles' nightmare comes to life as Joey and Professor Wilder get a liiiiiittle too close for comfort. Also, Dawson starts college (again), Jen loses her edge, and Jack is on academic probation. Who knew it'd be up to Pacey to be the adult in the room?

512 - Sleeping Arrangements

As you'll hear in the promo in the beginning of the show, "Cry" by Mandy Moore was very "in" as a backing track for early '00s soapy teen dramas. (Spoiler alert: the 5x13 promo uses "Cry" too!)

So what do you all think: was it too soon for Dawson and Jen to move into the same house together? On the one hand, it's not like it's just the two of them (Grams is there too!) so it's not like they're "moving in together" in the traditional sense of the term. But it still may be too soon given how new this relationship at this point in their lives is!

From Charles: "This episode officially breaks my Dawson’s Creek Extended Universe canon. In the scene in this episode between Dawson and Grams, where Dawson discusses his film school orientation, he mentions that he doesn’t know much about the French New Wave. In the fanfiction I wrote last year, I specifically mention that Mr. Gold was teaching Dawson about the French New Wave…

511 - Something Wild

Joey gets straight A's! Joey sings! Joey kisses Charlie!

OK...we get why people feel like Season 5 became The Joey Show.

Also, couple questions for y'all: 1) Do we like Singing Joey? 2) Do we think Joey was sort of motivated to kiss Charlie because of unresolved feelings about the Dawson/Jen thing?

From Traci: "I don't think our girl Joey is being malicious in kissing Charlie. I think a lot of it was adrenaline-fueled. That being said, I feel like there's a part deep down inside of her that wanted to vent out her frustrations about the Dawson/Jen stuff (which I believe is bugging her!) and it just ended up manifesting in the form of this very unfortunate kiss."

From Charles: "Dawson’s Creek has mentioned the Worthington bursar MULTIPLE times now, and I just want everyone to know I didn’t know what a bursar was until Hamilton."

510 - Appetite for Destruction

Worst dinner party ever? You tell us.

From Charles: "One thing I’m really curious about is whether the show’s going to ship Audrey and Pacey some more? There was a little flirting in this episode, right? That fun banter while Pacey was cooking? Their one-on-one conversation was sweet re: the two of them (somehow) having the least emotionally invested in the entire section, and that, 'You can make me a tart anytime' line was fun. Or maybe that was just two flirty character hanging out with each other. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯"
