Corrected entry: Early in Season 5, Dawson flies from LA to Boston to visit Joey for the weekend. He only brings a weekend-type bag for the trip, since he's planning on returning to LA after the weekend.But-Dawson doesn't go back to LA until the very end of Season 5. Because of Joey's phone message, he decides to stay in Boston and eventually decides he isn't going back to USC at all. Meanwhile, we never see Dawson fly back to LA to collect any of his belongings from his dorm room at USC. He left most of his stuff there, when he flew out to see Joey for the weekend. But during the rest of the Season, he never goes back to retrieve all of his things from LA, and never has anything shipped out to him or put in storage.So what happened to the rest of Dawson's stuff back in LA? Particularly in his USC dorm room? He probably retained his dorm room for the rest of that semester, since it was only October when he went to Boston. Yet he never goes back to get his 'stuff'. This doesn't make sense, as even though he wasn't sure about USC at first he makes a final decision in episode 7. Dawson doesn't go back to LA until the end of the school year, for the Summer-and his dorm room was probably assigned to someone else for the second semester at USC. So how did he ever get the rest of his stuff from LA? This is never explained at all during the show.
