    In case you were absent this ENTIRE week from the internet, Entertainment Weekly reunited the cast of Dawson's Creek in honor of the show's 20th anniversary, and everything was too much for my millennial heart.

    The outlet sat down with the creator of Dawson's Creek, Kevin Williamson, and asked where he thinks his characters are today. Spoiler alert: LIFE HAS BEEN ROUGH.

    First, Kevin told us where Dawson is these days, and TBH, it's a little depressing!

    KW: "I'm a man of conflict, so I would want to, of course, show some conflict. I think Dawson became Spielberg — all his dreams came true. I think they shattered, I think he fell apart, I think he never really found love. And when we come upon him, he's just on the cusp of changing his whole life and finding the one thing that's gonna make it magical. ... And then I would show that magic happen, show him find himself, find love, and find everything he ever dreamed of."

    Sorry, Dawson, but...


    Then, he caught us up to speed on Pacey and Joey's life, and they got married and started a family!!!

    KW: "I think Pacey and Joey got married. I think they had a family."

    Yay! Happily ever after for our favorite coupl—WRONG!!!!


    Their marriage actually ended in divorce! Like, to be exact, they're in a "very, very dark place."

    KW: "I think there were troubles. I think they got a divorce. I think when we meet them, they're in a very, very dark place."


    But not all hope is lost! Kevin went on to say the magic between them is TOO strong and they'd fall in love with each other all over again as middle-aged adults:

    KW: "But there's still something between them that forces them to come together and raise their children. And as they seek out happiness with others, they keep coming back to each other. They just can't stop that magical thing that exists between them and that bond they have. I think we'd sort of have to watch them fall in love all over again as middle-aged adults."

    For some reason, I can picture them as adults, falling in love again, SO clearly...
