GREATEST SERIES FINALE OF ALL TIME!
Since Netflix solved my dilemma, I had a group of girlfriends over on Friday night to relive the glory days of movie nights in Dawson's bedroom, Joey glaring at people, Jen's bad attitude/haircuts, and Pacey's general perfection as a human being. One of the girls that came over had never seen DC before at all (tragedy of tragedies!) and several more needed a refresher, so I created an educational PowerPoint presentation recapping each character's story arc for every season, like so:
Season 1, Episode 7, "Detention"
Season 2, Episode 16, "Be Careful What You Wish For"
Season 3, 19, "Stolen Kisses"
Season 4, 14, "A Winter's Tale"
Season 5, 19, "100 Light Years From Home"
Season 6, 23/24, "All Good Things...Must Come to an End"
6 hours flew by, we had so much fun, so many laughs, and so many swoons. It was such a great night! I've watched this series so many times, these characters feel almost like friends to me (unless that makes me sound crazy...in which case I don't mean it), so it's always nice to go back and reunite!
Bonus: as we watched, I totally forgot or didn't even make the connections of who some of the guest stars are. Dawson's Aunt Gwen is now Clare Dunphy on Modern Family, and we were all completely shocked to notice that a doctor in the Season 4 episode was Buster from Arrested Development!!!! Who would have thought!
