503 - Capeside Revisited

Previously on Dawson's Speak, Charles was enjoying season 5.

And then... #DawsonsCreekTaughtMe to not pick up dropped ice cream while driving.

From Traci: "I'm still really upset at how this happened. Maybe it was just a funny thing the writers and John Wesley Shipp agreed on, but for fans of the Leerys, this really sucks."

From Charles: "All the Mitch stuff aside, there was no way they were using a real truffle in the show, right? That thing was the size of a fist (I feel like it was maybe a rutabaga). I know white truffles can get that big, but I can’t imagine they’re getting sold to TV shows."

  1. So I don't actually hate the way Mitch dies as much as everyone else. I think it was supposed to show that he is still a 'fun' person after all of the drama from the rest of the episode. That sounds kind of weird, but it's my theory and I'm sticking to it.

    In other news, the Pacey and Joey scene was lovely, and their chemistry is about a million times hotter even when friends than Dawson and Joey's damp squib of a relationship (romantically, they are nice as just friends).

    Also, when Mitch said Dawson had gone through the kind of adversity that made most kids run away and by hell or highwater he got there (paraphrasing) - did anyone else rack their brains to work out what all this 'adversity' was meant to be?! Hasn't he just gone through things most kids his age would (parents divorce, relationship breakup, and older person in their life passing away)?

    1. We hadn't thought of Mitch's death that way, but it makes sense. We talk about this a little more on next week's episode, but as frustrated as we were during 5x03, we've had a slight change of heart.

      Also, yeah - Dawson and Joey should just try to focus on their friendship right now! :(
