    Admit It, Grams Was Hands Down The Best Character On "Dawson's Creek"

    Grams can kick your ass.

    When ~the world~ talks about Dawson's Creek these days, it often has something to do with one of the main characters and/or one of the main characters' talky love triangles.

    But the character we really (really, really) need to talk about is Evelyn "Grams" Ryan. The bossest bitch in Capeside.

    Because let's not mess around here: She's the most iconic character on this show, bar none.

    She looks intimidating, sure. But you can't get to be HBIC without a withering stare or two.

    At the beginning of the series she's set in her ways, unable to bridge the gap between her values and those of her granddaughter, Jen.

    But you can tell by her stylish glasses that there's more to Grams than meets the eye.

    And while so many characters stay stuck in their ways, Grams GROWS and stands up for what's important.

    She's the momma hen of the entire series, and she'll school any young kid on how to toughen the fuck up and get their shit together.

    PREACH IT, GRAMS.

    Her relationship with Jen grows to be the most loving and enduring on the show, far more resonant than whether or not Joey and Dawson are ever gonna have sex.

    They find each other just when they need each other the most, opposites in so many ways but absolutely made for each other.

    And it's one of the most beautiful things this show has to offer.

    Love triangles come and go, but this family is FOREVER.

    It will also make me cry forever.

    But never forget: Grams also knows how to have a good time.

    And she can rock the fuck out of a cardigan.

    Grams is the best, the end.

    GET IT, EVELYN.

    Long live Grams. Forever and ever.
