Rank #1: 412 - The Te of Pacey
Traci and Charles discuss an unfortunate breach in the #NoSpoilersForCharles barricade – plus, it's time for a party! A pretty terrible party, to be honest! Pacey turns 18 and has a surprise party thrust upon him, Dawson and Gretchen end up making out in the Witter basement, and Jen and Tobey drive drunk kids home. It's a lot to deal with and we just want everyone to be happy.

Rank #2: 615 - Castaways
The one where Pacey and Joey get stuck in a K-Mart all night and are forced to have a conversation (and a fight) that we've been waiting for for almost two seasons...! Also: GOODBYE GOATEE!

Rank #3: 403 - Two Gentlemen of Capeside
AKA "THE STORM"! Things stay dramatic in Capeside as a giant tempest threatens True Love. Meanwhile, Dawson and Pacey's friendship continues to be on the rocks, Andie deals with a tough college interview, and Grams keeps on kicking butt -- or, at least, threatens to. Plus, Traci gets to talk about Shakespeare and is very excited about it (sorry).

Rank #4: 414 - A Winter's Tale
Death, snow, and sex – the perfect recipe for an extra soapy episode of this soapy teen drama. In Capeside, Dawson has to make a choice about Mr. Brooks' life, while in Vermont (we think), Joey has a choice to make about intimacy. Also, Jack and Jen get drunk and make out. Is this what winters in high school are supposed to be like??

Rank #5: 614 - Clean and Sober
Time for a house party! Drunk Joey makes everyone play Spin the Bottle, Pacey and Jack worship a new TV, and we say goodbye to Emma (much to Charles' disbelief). Dawson and Audrey also go through some good healing at rehab as they stalk Toni Stark (not to be confused with Tony Stark).

Rank #6: 503 - Capeside Revisited
And here Charles thought season 5 was going so well... Dawson returns to Capeside to tell his parents he's dropping out of school, Joey discovers Pacey is in Boston, and Jen tries to connect with Charlie on a deeper level. Plus, Jack gets a fraternity bid and eating ice cream takes a horrible turn.

Rank #7: 323 - True Love
Traci and Charles recap their Wilmington trip before jumping into a very long discussion about the season 3 finale: Joey makes her choice! Dawson cries! Grams drives four teenagers very long distances to kiss boys! A wedding takes place! And Pacey wears some pretty interesting shirts! This episode has it all.

Rank #8: 508 - Hotel New Hampshire
Dawson finds peace at a film festival (and, as the fan submitted, anonymously written IMDb summary doesn't tell us, loses his virginity), Jack's bro-y behavior irks Joey and Audrey, and Pacey dates Karen, sleeps with Karen, then says goodbye to Karen. Traci and Charles also apologize for their mouths moving faster than their brains.

Rank #9: 301 - Like a Virgin
Welcome to season 3! New characters, a changing of the guard behind the scenes of the Creek (kind of), and more time spent in high school – what more could you want? Traci and Charles are ready to dive into everyone's favorite season, even if it begins with Eve.

Rank #10: 402 - Failing Down
Happiness appears to be elusive these days in Capeside as Pacey and Joey struggle to communicate, Jack finds himself in the middle of Jen and Henry's breakup, and Dawson wrestles with his involvement in his former bff's life. Also, a new character appears! What do you all think of Drue Valentine?

Rank #11: 413 - Hopeless
Is Dawson and Gretchen's relationship hopeless? There seems to be some doubts this episode as their age difference becomes a bit more noticeable than they'd both like. Also... what's the trouble with "nice guys"? Traci and Charles discuss why nice guys probably *don't* finish last. Plus, Joey and Pacey are off on a terrible double date, and Mr. Brooks has been hoarding his medication – which leads to a dire situation.

Rank #12: 608 - Spiderwebs
Last week, Charles predicted that nothing good ever happens at concerts on "Dawson's Creek"...and he wasn't wrong. From verbal (and physical!) fights to getting arrested, this No Doubt concert was certainly quite dramatic for our gang...

Rank #13: 613 - Rock Bottom
Road triiiiip! Featuring...Seth Rogen? Season 6 continues its weird and winding journey as Joey, Eddie and Audrey head west; Dawson struggles with exerting authority on set; and Jen tries to find love for Grams. And honestly? We're not into any of it.
Dec 09 2019
Rank #14: 321 - Show Me Love
A boat race turns potentially deadly as Dawson and Pacey take their feuding to the seas. Joey continues feeling caught in the middle, Andie learns to let go of her anger, and Henry is still the worst.

Rank #15: 504 - The Long Goodbye
A lovely episode in which we say goodbye to Mitch Leery, talk about grief and the grieving process, and get really, really sad. We also discuss floor ice cream more.
Mar 11 2019
Rank #16: 214 & 215 - To Be or Not to Be / That Is the Question
After livetweeting these Very Special Episodes, Traci and Charles sit down to unpack all the drama. Jack struggles under the ridicule and harassment of Capeside's worst people, Mr. McPhee shows up and is just as terrible as anticipated, and Pacey delivers some of the season's most memorable moments.

Rank #17: 610 - Merry Mayhem
We recorded this not-so-merry episode way too late at night, so excuse our rambling as the group heads back to Capeside for an ill-fated dinner at the Leery household. And it ends with a hole in the side of Gail's house! Oof.
Nov 11 2019
Rank #18: 401 - Coming Home
We're back for Season 4! Pacey and Joey come home to Capeside, where it seems like they weren't really missed, Dawson says goodbye to the best summer he's ever had, and a new Witter comes to town. Plus, Henry goes away! This episode has it all.

Rank #19: 102 - Dance
May 07 2017
Rank #20: 420 - Promicide
In which two ships end and one begins: Pacey and Joey implode, Dawson and Gretchen finish the break-up they didn't finish the episode before, Dawson and Joey continue their toxic friendship, and Jack and Tobey find a possible happily ever after. Plus, Traci and Charles discuss weird snack foods and why prom on a boat is bad idea.
