  • In this episode, Joey, Pacey, Audrey, Jen, and Jack travel down to Miami for Spring Break to party hard in Audrey's parents' beach house. Surprisingly, though, there's more in store for them than the Miami heat.

    This episode includes many scenes of Jack, during which he is drinking or speaking about alcohol in all of them. It is here that we realize in what bad emotional state he has been in since his departure from the fraternity. Even Jen, who used to be his close confidante, can no longer console him, as when she tries to confront him, he pushes her away. Jack is clearly unhappy, but uses the alcohol as a mask so that no one can get access to him. It is a truly a shame in what bad shape he has gotten himself into. Fortunately, it takes a near-death encounter involving flight from the top of a roof that finally wakes him up and asks him to turn his life around. And we have Dawson to thank for intervening at just the right time.
