Product Description

Part One: It's five years later and Dawson, Joey, Pacey, Jen and Jack are reunited in Capeside for Dawson’s 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.

Amazon.com

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 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

5.0 out of 5 stars The Happy Ending November 10, 2004
By ggbeans
I'd been a fan of Dawson's Creek since the very beginning, and the series finale did not disappoint. It tied up the six friends' relationships perfectly. Surprisingly, the most poignant and meaningful scenes belonged to Jack and Jen-- who were never "in" love, but true soulmates in every sense that mattered.

In terms of acting, all the major players turned in amazing performances. Most notably, Michelle Williams had me in tears when Jen was giving a final message to her baby girl. Not only was this scene a moving one, but tied into Joey's ongoing storyline of growing up without a mother. As Jen told Amy: "I want you to love to the tips of your fingers. And when you find that love, wherever you find it, whoever you choose, don't run away from it.." it mirrored exactly the decision Joey always struggled to make.

Onto that topic, the closure of the Dawson-Joey-Pacey love triangle was tastefully resolved: having Joey realize who she really belonged with, knowing and appreciating the difference between her childhood and romantic love, and where they both fit in her life. For a long time, cherishing one meant having to diminish the other, and it was great to have Joey realize she was definitely NOT off the hook, and she didn't have to run from the truth anymore. In terms of "Great Loves" Joey had two-- a best friend/soulmate (Dawson) and partner/true love (Pacey). She ended up with the best of BOTH worlds, and this couldn't have been more perfectly illustrated. We should all be so lucky.

[Still debating the infamous PJ/DJ couple war? Look no further than the hilarious dialogue of the Dawson/Joey "dream wedding," which revealed the painful truth of why these two would never, ever survive in an adult relationship.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full Circle March 15, 2004
This DVD ending is superior to the TV ending. The extra scenes complete the story and the commentaries from Kevin Williamson truly explain the reasons behind the ending. Also, the reason behind Pacey not ending up with Andie was not because the actress playing her was not available. Having them end up together would have been ridiculous considering they hadn't seen each other in years and were not the kids they used to be. It would've seemed like a consolation prize for Pacey, which he certainly did not deserve.

Having watched the re-runs on TBS, there's no question in my mind that the true romantic and hero of the series was not Dawson but Pacey. Pacey was longing for love, Dawson was longing for a "Hollywood" love. Thinking back and comparing Dawson vs. Pacey and what they did to demonstrate how much they cared for Joey, Pacey wins hands down. There's a particular episode when Pacey and Joey get locked up in a K-Mart for a night that perfectly exemplifies the kind of chemistry the two characters had (also, it's pretty obvious Katie Holmes smiles more in scenes with Jashua Jackson than with James Van Der Beek). If that episode had been Joey and Dawson stuck together, we would have expected no reminiscing of happier times (because there are so few!) and a stupid fight that would end in separate sleeping bags.
Dawson was so insecure about Joey, the only way they could end up together was in his series "The Creek" as part of his own imagination.
Who fought a school bully for Joey and then bought her a wall to paint on? Who took Joey sailing down the coast? Who waited patiently for Joey to open up sexually? The reason it wasn't Dawson was because he would not dare change anything. He got the ending he deserved: Joey and Dawson, forever friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Put the DC Finale on Your Must Buy List !! November 13, 2003
This is the series finale, the two-part episode that served to wrap up the six year run of this once popular television show.
It certainly makes up in quality for the disappointing last two seasons of the show, and puts the characters all back in that place we found them, the fictional seaside town of Capeside, MA.
Although I personally could have done without the tragic melodrama, I thought this was a perfect series ender because of one important reason: they finally got it right.
I don't think anyone who has watched these characters over the years and has become invested in their stories can help but feel cheated in how they were treated in the show's final two seasons. But all wrongs seem to be righted here and we are treated to wonderful moments between the core group of Jack, Jen, Dawson, Pacey and Joey.
The issue of the Dawson-Pacey-Joey triangle is also wrapped up perfectly, as the Dawson and Joey saga had been played out to a tired, gasping death over the years. All that we really ever saw of these two was how wrong they were for each other and how miserable they made each other. All in the name of soap operatic drama, I know...but they definitely crossed the line into relationship purgatory with this story and it actually would have been depressing should they have chosen to go with that ending.
Pacey and Joey, on the other hand, had an actual romantic love story that we got to see unfold on screen over the span of a couple of seasons, a nice slow burn from from the first spark of secret feelings tentatively explored to falling head-over-heels in love and literally sailing off into the sunset (another reason why the Dawson and Joey ending would have fell flat in comparison).
