Part One: It's five years later and Dawson, Joey, Pacey, Jen and Jack are reunited in Capeside for Dawsons mom's wedding. But the celebratory mood comes to an end when they receive some heartbreaking news.
Part Two: As the gang faces a future more uncertain than ever before, Joey struggles to come to terms with her true feelings for Dawson, Pacey and her current boyfriend. When she finally does, she surprises everyone with her decision.
With its series-finale episode, Dawson's Creek summed up its six-year run on the WB Network with a sweet and sad tale of reunion and farewell for old friends, soul mates, and lovers. The friends are now 25 and living new lives: Dawson (James Van Der Beek) is in Hollywood executive-producing The Creek, obviously based on his own life and considered "the new hit teen soap at the WB"; Joey (Katie Holmes) is a book editor in New York with a serious beau; Jen (Michelle Williams) is a single mother; Pacey (Joshua Jackson) is now the relatively respectable owner of the reborn Icehouse Restaurant; and Jack (Kerr Smith) is teaching at the high school and struggling with his relationship. A wedding brings everyone together in Capeside, but tragedy strikes, and the remaining friends are left to consider their lives and what they want to do with them. Whether or not you agree with the final choices, of course, probably depends on who you've been rooting for.
The extended cut of the finale runs 104 minutes, about 16 longer than when it was broadcast in May 2003. Unlike deleted scenes on movie DVDs, each addition seems like a useful part of the story, and the DVD borrows a helpful feature from the Lord of the Rings extended editions by designating on the chapter menu which scenes are new or extended. Some differences are minor, but there are significant new scenes with Joey at work, Joey and her boyfriend (Jeremy Sisto of Six Feet Under), Joey and Dawson's reunion in Capeside, and Pacey's conversation with old flame Andie (Meredith Monroe).
As they did for two episodes of Dawson's Creek: The Complete First Season, creator Kevin Williamson (who co-wrote the finale) and executive producer Paul Stubin provide a commentary track in which they discuss the new scenes and which characters were originally intended to end up together. There are also four scenes that were filmed for the original pilot presentation (not the finished pilot shown in season one) then reshot. There's a small but important difference in the last scene, Pacey meets Tamara Jacobs in a different video store, and Dawson's dad is played by a different actor before the role was recast with John Wesley Shipp. --David Horiuchi

It takes place four years in the future, which I thought was a great idea. It let us see our favorite characters in the real world after college, and it was good.
Joey's now an editor, Jack's an English teacher, Dawson is the writer and director of his own show The Creek, which was based on the indepedent movie he made during the second season of the show. Jen is a mother to a beautiful baby girl, Amy. It's said that her boyfriend knocked her up and then left her. I would assume that the boyfriend wasn't Jensen Ackle's character, who we last saw her with because he seems like too nice of a guy to do that, but they never really say who it was.
The gang is in town for Dawson's mother's wedding, and the first hour has to do with the death of one of the cast, which is very heartbreaking, I cried many times, while the second deals with the love triangle that is Pacey, Joey and Dawson.
I loved the finale when it aired in May, but when I heard that there were deleted scenes in the dvd, I had to buy it even though I had the other on tape. It was well worth it, if just for the return of Meredith Monroe as Andie. The best addition was at the very end when they show clips of all of the most important scenes of the last 6 years. It's very touching.
I would definitely recommend buying this whether you saw it when it aired, or if you have yet to see it.
It is an excellent episode.
Kevin Williamson had the power to write any ending he chose for the character of Pacey (and he is just a CHARACTER on a TV show). He could have given Pacey a happy ending in all kinds of ways, made him successful, could have even made him married to somebody perfect. The suggestion they had to have Pacey end up with Joey because he had "nothing else" is reaching reaching, because they could have just written Pacey as being completely over Joey and happy without her to facilitate a Dawson andJoey ending. Simple as that. It was all within the writer's power to do that.
And, honestly, if we are going to start quoting things characters said to each other on the show, Dawson and Joey win hands down in the hurtful comments category. Dawson and Joey were also never able to sustain a relationship for more than a few weeks without it all crashing and burning, and even up to the last season of the show they were only together a day before they ended in a huge fight that really showed how bitter and resentful they were to each other even still. That is why the dream wedding Williamson wrote was so funny, to make light of all those bad feelings between the two of them.
To suggest an entire ending was rewritten because the actress playing the character of Andie had a scheduling conflict also doesn't make a whole lot of sense.Read more ›
Although season 3 did include some interesting episodes, the final episode was by far the best episode since season 2. The most touching scene was the one with Dawson reflecting at the creek, seeing Jen getting out of the cab 10 years ago. The scene also shows that Dawson is the best character in the series, the only (besides Jack) really thinking about Jen. Pacey and Joey rather busy with their own relationship, pretty egoistic. In addition, it also highlights the talent of James van der Beek as an actor.
To make a long story short: the series finale is a "must" for every fan of the show and what it originally wanted to convey to the audience. "The series that spoke to a generation ..."
