Re-Watching The "Dawson's Creek" Finale

Exactly 10 years ago, JEN DIED.

On May 14, 2003, we were forced to say adieu to the World's Greatest Television Series in the World, Dawson's Creek. Let us revisit the two-part finale that either ripped you apart...or you were like, meh.

We open with the show-within-the-show, The Creek, which Dawson now writes and produces. (He's a big shot.) These two episodes jump five years into the future...making our characters around the ripe old age of 25, 26. So, basically, Dawson is the Lena Dunham of his time.

Dawson is up in his old room, trying to write, when he hears a rustling at the window. So of course, the logical thing to do is to stand poised by the window, ready to take down the intruder with your MacBook Pro!

Which is how it should be, right? When it comes to Dawson vs. Pacey, we're 100 percent Team P. But wouldn't it make more sense for Joey to get with Dawson? (And leave Pacey up for grabs?) Maybe? I don't know! 10 years later, I'm still so confused.
