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)_/¯"

509 - Four Scary Stories

We're curious about what the spooky ending to Jen's story was supposed to be. Because that couldn't have been it, right??

From Charles: "I kind of feel like this was a waste of Grams. We haven’t seen her in a bit now, and she spends the entire episode telling a story she’s not in. This woman was a nurse during a war, I’m sure she has some scary stories!"

From Traci: "Sorry if we got our ghost mythology wrong."

508 - Hotel New Hampshire

We've been meeting so many new characters this season – and here's another one! Oliver, what a little weirdo...but we kind of like him?? What do you all think?

As for this episode: it's nice to see Dawson talking about Mitch in a happy way and remembering him with such fondness. Grief is hard, and we appreciate seeing Dawson's journey through this whole ordeal. But with that being said... how does everyone feel about the Dawson/Jen situation we've found ourselves in?? We still think they're better friends than boyfriend/girlfriend, but their time in New Hampshire is sweet.

But because it's Dawson's Creek, we also know it's not going to stay drama-free for long...!

507 - Text, Lies And Videotape

First: we have confirmed The Real World aired on MTV, so...don't @ us lol

Second: Chef Danny is such a jerk. Obviously, this is nowhere near the most important storyline of the episode, but it's one that pissed us off quite a bit.

Other than that... this episode was OK. Nothing major happened, but it wasn't boring. It's part of this "resetting" that the show tends to do from time to time after really dramatic/traumatic events – but unlike seeing Abby dying or Andie leave for Italy, the trauma is still a core part of the characters' lives (in this case, Mitch's death).

That having been said, there are still a lot of questions Charles needs answered. Listen to the pod for the rants ;)
