  • Dawson and Joey finally have sex...but it seems too late.

    Most of this episode focused on the fact that Joey and Dawson hadn't talked all summer, while she spent her time in Capeside and he was out in California. This episode does introduce Eddie when he disagrees with Joey about the book that she only read part of to get into the advanced class. As revealed in the next episode, no one actually forgot Joey's birthday, they were just trying to surprise her, but the fact that Dawson is the only one that seemed to remember really registers with her. When he gives her the snowglobe, at first they just seem to be having a friendly hug, but then they decide to sleep together. At this point they don't really seem to have that much chemistry so the whole scene is pretty awkward, which is why I only gave this episode a 9. Considering they were talking about sleeping together since they were 15, it seems a little late in the story line when Joey is turning 19.
