Trivia: During the narrative for this episode, Kevin Williamson mentions that the show "Dawson's Creek" was originally written for North Carolina. Because they didn't want a Southern show, they came up with Cape Cod area outside of Boston. But during the Winter episodes, it's hard to get snow in the water in the real location of Wilmington, NC.
Trivia: When Jen comes through Dawson's bedroom window (near the end), a GhostFace mask from the "Scream" series can be seen on the shelf Dawson uses for his movie props. One of the "Creek" creators, Kevin Williamson was the independent writer of the original "Scream." It's even plausible that this is an actual mask from the movie.
