Dawson's Creek

100 Light Years From Home - S5-E19

Plot hole: At the end of the episode, Dawson is seated in the kitchen talking to Pacey in a normally loud voice. At the same time, Joey and Charlie are awake and talking in the pup tent in the living room, very close to the kitchen. Later in the Season we learn that Joey had no idea Dawson had driven down to Florida to see her, as apparently he left without seeing or talking to her. But being in such close proximity that morning; there is no way Joey would not have been able to hear Dawson's voice as he talked with Pacey. The living room was close enough to the kitchen, so it doesn't make sense that Joey wouldn't have known Dawson was there and if she did-she would have gone to talk to him.

Full Moon Rising - S2-E5

Plot hole: Jack and Joey are desperate to get the tank pump fixed so they can put the lobsters back in. However, once the customer tells them how to fix it, they then stop for a chat, check his table for tips, read a poem, share a moment, and start cleaning counters - with no attempt to re-house the lobsters.

A Weekend in the Country - S3-E12

Plot hole: When everyone is staying at the Potter B&B, Joey mentions that it's supposed to be the coldest night of the year. Also, Mr. Fricke tells them at breakfast that the heat went out again during the night. After such a cold night and the heat going out, the house must have been freezing that morning. Yet Joey wakes up and is wearing only a skimpy sleeveless top and PJ bottoms, more like summer pajamas. She continues walking into the very cold house without putting a robe or anything else on. It looks a bit odd, considering how cold the temperature is and the fact that everyone else that morning is already wearing long sleeves. Later that morning, the house is still so cold Joey is sleeping by the fire with a blanket over her. Yet earlier that morning, she seemed to be comfortable in scanty summer PJs.

The Election - S2-E9

Plot hole: Season 2 picks up with everyone still in Sophomore year, which continues until the end of that Season. So we are presumably well into the Sophomore school year, and yet during this episode there are suddenly elections for the Sophmore President and Vice President. It doesn't make sense they would wait until this far into Sophomore year to be electing officers *for* the Sophomore year! Too much time has passed; normally elections like that would be held at the beginning of the year so the people elected can do their jobs longer, for the entire Sophomore year.

High Risk Behavior - S2-E10

Plot hole: During this episode, Jack is at Joey's house at night for some time. Pacey and Andie obviously spend a great deal of time together that same night with dinner, a walk and the Bed & Breakfast session (and we later find out they stayed there much longer than it looked originally). It has been mentioned in the past that Jack and Andie have to 'take turns' watching their mother, and they can't leave her alone at night. Therefore - while Jack is posing for Joey for much of the evening and night, and Andie is out on a date for much of the evening and night; who is watching their mother?

The Scare (aka Friday the 13th) - S1-E11

Plot hole: When Pacey drives them all to the market, he explains that he had to 'steal' the car from his family, and thus doesn't have the keys. He makes Joey stay in the car while they are shopping, because he can't turn off the car. But later, at the end of the episode, Pacey suddenly goes running out of Dawson's house late at night, jumps into the same car and turns keys in the ignition to start it and drive off in a hurry. How would he suddenly have the keys to the car? He drove them all straight to Dawson's house from the market, with the crazy girl - and the car had been there ever since. He had no time to go back home to get the keys; and it isn't likely his father, the town sheriff, would allow his underage son without a legal driver's license, to have the keys.

Indian Summer - S3-E5

Plot hole: When Jen and Henry are talking in the park, he tells her that he's 15. But later in Season 3, he has a Birthday party at the Skating Rink in which he would have to be turning 16. Henry is a Freshman, and it's highly unlikely he would be turning 16 in his Freshman year. All the main characters of Dawson's Creek turned 16 during their Sophomore years. It also doesn't seem likely that Henry would have skipped an academic school year, as his personality/character doesn't appear to be intellectually motivated.

Barefoot at Capefest - S3-E11

Plot hole: Jack and Jen go to Capefest, primarily because Jack wants to run into Ethan who invited him there for the festivities. Jack and Ethan spend time together at Capefest, and become friends. Ethan makes a comment that he wants to go straight to sleep because he is tired, and the next day was a big day, meaning 20 bands starting at dawn. But the next morning, before breakfast Ethan and Jack talk briefly, Ethan says 'Goodbye' and they go their separate ways without enjoying any of the music fun together. It doesn't seem plausible that Ethan would invite Jack to Capefest to enjoy the music scene, and then take off just when all the fun is starting on the main day. Why wouldn't they have spent the day together as friends enjoying all the bands and festivities which is what they went there for?

Coming Home - S4-E1

Plot hole: Dawson mentions to everyone on the beach, that he and Jack have to go paint their 'last home of the season', implying they have been earning money by painting homes around Capeside. However, when Dawson and Jack stop by the hardware store to get supplies, Dawson picks out a metal handle for the paint rollers. Paint and new rollers makes sense, but if they have indeed painted other houses that Summer, he probably wouldn't need a more substantial piece of equipment as the heavy duty metal paint roller handle. He would already have one.

None of the Above - S3-E3

Plot hole: When Dawson and Eve are in the PSAT room after hours looking for the test, there is a noticeably open outside window behind them implying that was how they broke into the room. But when the security guard suddenly comes in the room and walks by the window twice, he makes no attempt to close the window and secure the room, which one would think was his job.

Castaways - S6-E15

Plot hole: When Pacey and Joey get locked in the Big K-Mart, they run to the front doors and start banging on them and yelling at the guard. The guard, who is in the parking lot turns back towards his car and faces directly towards Joey and Pacey in the front windows. They aren't that far from the guard's car, and he was looking directly towards them. There is no way the guard would not have noticed two full-grown adults standing in the front glass doors pounding their hands on the glass and yelling at him.

High Anxiety - S5-E6

Plot hole: In the beginning of the episode, Dawson is talking to his Doctor about seeing a Psychiatrist for his panic attacks. The Doctor mentions the name of one in Boston, and calls out to the assistant to make an appointment for Dawson. But only about 12 seconds (real time) later, the assistant suddenly comes in and already has made an appointment for Dawson the next day at 5PM. There is no way the assistant could have possibly gotten ahold of a busy Psychiatrist in Boston, and made a confirmed appointment for Dawson in only 12 seconds. It would take longer than that, especially as most Psychiatrists have phone menus where they have to return calls from.

xx:xx:xx

Swan Song - S5-E23

Plot hole: When Dawson runs into Grams at the Airport, she asks him to not mention her trip to Jen. But shortly after that in the same conversation, Dawson invites Grams to go say hello to Jen and Jack who are waiting for their flight. If Grams didn't want Jen to know about her trip, she couldn't very well just go meet Jen without explaining what she was up to.

The Kids Are Alright (1) - S6-E1

Plot hole: When Joey walks into her class and sits down, her cell phone rings and her Professor answers it. As he listens to Audrey on the other end, he says very quickly that he got the message. But when he relays the entire message to Joey after he hangs up, the message is much longer. There is no way he could have possibly gotten that long a message in the very short time he was talking to Audrey and said 'he got it'.

Rock Bottom - S6-E13

Plot hole: The episode starts with Joey frantically trying to get to class, and printing out a paper she obviously has to turn in for that class. But then Eddie suddenly shows up at her door, and after hearing from Audrey's Mom, Joey suddenly decides to ditch school for a few days to drive across Country to LA. This doesn't sound like something the studious Joey would do, especially with her Scholarship in jeapordy from her failing grade on the midterm. Why would she take a few days off from school, in the middle of the week with classes and further jeopardize her academic standing at a very expensive University? It wasn't Spring Break yet either, that comes in a later episode. Even though Joey would have to fly back from LA, it would still take them at least 2 or 3 days to drive from Boston to LA. Would Joey really just take off like that and ditch all her academic responsibilities considering how serious she is about her education? Doesn't seem reasonable for her character.

Two Gentlemen of Capeside - S4-E3

Plot hole: While out at sea, Jen and Pacey get slammed by the storm. So Pacey decides to take shelter at a small cove that he and Dawson had once used to wait out a storm. Pacey and Jen make it safely to the cove, and wait on the boat in fear of being capsized or drowning. If they are in a cove, and close to shore-why wouldn't they go on land to wait out the storm where they would be safer than in a boat that could be capsized or flooded? They could have probably swam a few feet to get to the shore, since they were already in a small cove that was near land. When Pacey was steering the boat into the cove; there was a noticable man-made jetty they were very close to, so obviously they were within close range of solid land.

Two Gentlemen of Capeside - S4-E3

Plot hole: When the storm hits the Capeside Yacht Club, Andie takes charge and tells Mrs. Valentine to write down two phone numbers and call Dawson's parents, and Jen's grandmother. But she forgets completely about Joey and Pacey, both of whom are in harm's way, especially Pacey. Seems illogical she would have Mrs. Valentine call about two of the people out at sea, but not the other two. Joey's family and Pacey's family would also be concerned.

Indian Summer - S3-E5

Plot hole: When Dawson picks up the phone in his bedroom after seeing the lights in the house next door, he dials 9-1-1 (You can hear the three beeps from the phone buttons). Yet when the person on the other end answers the phone, she says "Capeside Police". Later in the episode Doug also makes a reference to Dawson dialing 911. Yet when he called 911, they should have responded "911" instead of "Capeside Police". Normally when you call 911 you would get a 911 operator, not be put directly through to the local Police until you requested it.

Joey Potter and the Capeside Redemption - S6-E22

Plot hole: When Jen and Grams are talking on the porch, Dawson walks up to talk to them. They ask him if their cab has arrived, and he says no, but they are in his shot. They then choose that time to say goodbye to Dawson, which turns into a group 'goodbye' with everyone that lasts several minutes. Meanwhile, the cab has arrived, and when they are finished saying goodbye, Grams, Jack and Jen walk to the cab and get in to leave for NYC. But what happened to all their luggage for the trip? How did it get in the cab? They went straight from saying goodbye, into the cab without stopping to carry their luggage to the car.

The Graduate - S4-E22

Plot hole: When Pacey and Andie are talking at the Senior Party, she excitedly mentions that he will be in the Caribbean that Summer. Pacey says that Andie would be in Florence, Italy. This doesn't make sense, because at that point in the episode, none of Andie's friends knew she was returning to stay in Italy. In fact, later during the graduation ceremony, Andie is talking to her brother Jack. He is the first person she tells the news to, and even says, "I haven't told anyone else this". So how would Pacey know the night before that Andie had decided to stay in Italy longer?

Four to Tango - S3-E9

Plot hole: When Jen is helping Dawson at the Video Store, and spots Pacey and Joey out on the street, she asks, "Dawson, do you have one of those little signs that says 'Back in 5'?" Dawson then relies "Yeah", implying he could leave the store for several minutes on a small break. But then he and Jen follow to where Joey and Pacey are taking their dance lesson. Dawson then proceeds to dance his way through an entire dance lesson, witness a confrontational scene in the coat closet, and then lingers outside in the street having a meaningful conversation with Joey. This would all obviously take up a considerable amount of time, much more than a small break. Therefore - how would he have gotten away with closing down the Video Store for that amount of time without losing business and possibly his job? Especially if the sign only indicated he would be away a few minutes. This would be very un-Dawson-like to be that irresponsible with his only place of employment.

Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road - S6-E21

Plot hole: In the beginning of the episode, Joey and Audrey are talking in their dorm room. Audrey makes a comment that "Our time in this particular room is over". They have been in the same dorm room (27) for two years now, their Freshman and Sophomore years at Worthington. They still have 2 more years to go. What would make Audrey think that they would suddenly have to change dorm rooms when they've had the same room the entire time? Or that they wouldn't still be roommates the next academic year at Worthington? Audrey is staying to take Summer School classes so she doesn't have to leave the University.

A Weekend in the Country - S3-E12

Plot hole: The morning after everyone stayed at the Potter B&B, there is a fun kitchen scene showing all the kids dancing together preparing breakfast. Andie seems to be making pancakes. Yet later at breakfast, Joey finds out that Bodie has come back and is the reason the pancakes taste so good. Apparently he was the chef that morning, but he is nowhere in sight during the breakfast-making scene. So if all the kids are cooking - where is Bodie? Wasn't he supposed to make the pancakes?

Everything Put Together Falls Apart - S6-E9

Plot hole: When Pacey first finds Emma in the bathroom cleaning the toilet, she makes a point of mentioning that 'she has band practice in an hour'. But right after they 'strike a deal' and Pacey agrees to her terms for the party, Emma suddenly announces that 'she is off to band practice'. Only a few minutes have passed, so it seems strange Emma would suddenly be going to a band practice that doesn't actually start for another hour.

None of the Above - S3-E3

Plot hole: When Dawson suddenly shows up at Joey's workplace, Joey is inside asleep at the desk and Pacey is awake sitting outside. As Pacey and Dawson start fighting verbally, their voices escalate loudly but Joey still doesn't wake up even though she's sitting right inside. It isn't until they start throwing punches at each other and fighting physically that Joey suddenly comes running out to see what is going on. It doesn't seem realistic that Joey would be able to sleep through their loud arguing, and not wake up until they are hitting each other. If she had woken up before that, she would have definitely come outside to see what Dawson and Pacey were up to.

100 Light Years From Home - S5-E19

Plot hole: When Chris arrives at the beach house, and invites everyone to the MTV concert a few blocks away; he tells them to follow him there implying that he can get them in free with his 'clout' as a movie star. But later during the first song, Joey and Charlie arrive walking up the stairs from the beach apparently just coming from the beach house. They walk right in to the concert area - no problem. But how would they get in without Chris? They didn't have tickets, and Chris wasn't with them to usher them in. It wasn't likely an event open to the entire general public; as it would be too crowded, and not just the younger people MTV audience for TV.

Late - S4-E19

Plot hole: Right after Gail has her baby, Joey finally gets a very important phone call from Pacey. It's unrealistic to their characters that Joey wouldn't mention anything about Gail having her baby to Pacey during that phone call, as it was rather a momentous event.

Coming Home - S4-E1

Plot hole: Dawson and Jen are in a small 'darkroom', developing photos and speaking at a normal level. This darkroom is located just behind the main stairs, and very close to the living room where Dawson's parents are 'getting busy'. Therefore, the parents normally would have heard their voices so close to them, and known they were in the house and not been so surprised by them.

Four to Tango - S3-E9

Plot hole: When Jack and Andie are using the computer at school, Jack shows a clear knowledge of computers by explaining search engine criteria to Andie. It's also mentioned that they had already done an extensive background check on Ben, again implying that Jack has extensive computer skills. So why would Jack, who is apparently quite skilled with computers: not know what an Instant Message is, not know how to 'get rid of this thing' by clicking off the IM window, and not know to click 'Send' in order to send an IM back to Ben. It doesn't make sense that Jack would know so much about computers, and not have any awareness of how something as simple and basic in Internet usage as 'Instant Messages' would work.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - S4-E9

Plot hole: During the Leery's Christmas party, Jen asks Jack which colleges he applied to in her name. He replies: Bard, Brown, Columbia, Emerson, Sarah Lawrence, and BU (Boston University). But later in this season, Jen goes to visit NYC because she was accepted into the University of New York. How could she have been accepted there when she never applied? Jack didn't apply for her there, and she didn't fill out any college applications herself.

The Graduate - S4-E22

Plot hole: After Drue has spent the night at Jen's house, Grams explains to Jen that she had a nice talk with Drue right after Jen left for school. But this doesn't make sense, because why would Jen have to be at school a certain time, and Drue not go to school at the same time or at all? His attendance at school would have been required as well.

Falling Down - S4-E2

Plot hole: When Dawson goes over to Joey's house to talk to her about Pacey's school problems, he mentions that Pacey had missed that entire day of school. Joey apparently didn't know this, as she is surprised at the news. Since Joey and Pacey are closely involved - wouldn't she have noticed his absence at school that day already? Surely she would have noticed Pacey missing for an entire day of school.

Castaways - S6-E15

Plot hole: When Pacey and Joey are in the break room, waiting for the police to call them back, they start arguing. The phone suddenly rings, and Joey asks Pacey not to answer it in order to finish their conversation. But this doesn't make logical sense; considering their desperate circumstances (being locked in the store all night) and how hard they tried to get hold of law enforcement to help them get out, there is no way Joey would not want to answer such a critical phone call. It may have been their only chance to communicate with help.

Falling Down - S4-E2

Plot hole: Mrs. Valentine almost fires Joey, after discovering that she lied about knowing the Owens. Drue steps in and saves Joey's job by claiming he did see the Owen boy. But Joey keeps her job throughout the rest of that season. Since the Owens were said to be in Paris only until the 1st of the year - wouldn't Mrs. Valentine have found that Joey lied about knowing them as soon as they returned to Capeside? Surely Mrs. Valentine would have mentioned Joey to the Owens; thinking she was their good friend, and because she was new on staff at the Country Club they were members of the board for. And once she found out Joey had indeed lied, why did she not fire her at that point?

First Encounters of the Close Kind - S3-E10

Plot hole: Joey tells AJ that her Mother used to read "Little Women" to her, and in fact named her 'Josephine' because "Little Women" was her favorite book. But in a previous episode when Joey and Dawson visit her Mother's grave, the gravestone has printed 'Lillian Josephine Potter', meaning her Mother already had Josephine as her middle name. So naming Joey 'Josephine' wasn't only because of the book "Little Women"; her Mother more likely named her that because it was her middle name.

None of the Above - S3-E3

Plot hole: When Dawson and Eve are in the PSAT room after hours, looking for the test, a security guard suddenly comes in. They both have time to duck under a desk and avoid being seen, but as soon as the guard passes them, they start talking in rather loud whispers. The guard is still very close to them, as he quickly returns to walk past them going the other way. It seems reckless for them to be talking like that with the security guard so close at hand who would normally hear them, and so soon after he walks by them.

Late - S4-E19

Plot hole: During Pacey's phone call to Joey at the end of the episode, Pacey lies about being on a fishing trip and mentions having caught a "91 pound marlin" which is a pretty big fish. This doesn't make sense for him to say that, as a fish that large would be noticably missing when he and Doug returned home. And they wouldn't have likely thrown a fish that large back into the sea. It would reveal he was lying if he returned home without the fish.

Love Bites - S6-E18

Plot hole: At the end of the episode, Joey takes a taxi from Boston to Eddie's house in Worcestor. As she walks up to the front door, the cab leaves. Eddie has no idea Joey is coming, and she has no way to return to Boston without using a cab or asking Eddie for a ride. But she doesn't even know yet if Eddie is home, and whether he would offer to drive her home. Seems illogical for Joey to dismiss the cab without asking the cab driver to wait a few moments while she sees if Eddie is home, and if he would be willing to drive her back to Boston. Otherwise, she would have to ask his parents to use the phone to call another cab.

True Love - S3-E23

Plot hole: During this ending scene, Joey runs frantically to find Pacey and asks to go with him on his sailing trip all Summer. She is carrying absolutely nothing with her, not even a purse or wallet. Her pockets are completely flat, and she doesn't even appear to have ID. Joey's lack of luggage or clothing is explained in her dialogue, as she jokes about the next change of clothing. She probably assumed she could buy what she needed along the way, and was in a hurry not to miss Pacey's departure. But it doesn't seem logical that she would take off for an entire Summer without any type of purse, wallet, money, credit cards, ID, etc. as she would have no way to pay for anything. She would also need her ID in order to work the odd jobs she mentions in Season 4.

Admissions - S4-E17

Plot hole: When Pacey and Joey are unloading the groceries from the car for her party, Pacey makes a remark that he has to go to Joey's garage to get a dolly to haul in the charcoal. But Joey's house doesn't have a garage. During the entire series; there has never been a visible garage on their property, and the large blue truck is always parked out front in the open.

Swan Song - S5-E23

Plot hole: When everyone first shows up at the Airport, it's daytime and not too late. Joey then works an entire shift at the Capeside Yacht Club, probably through the dinner rush until later that night. When Joey and Pacey are talking on the dock after she is through working, it's late at night. They suddenly decide to rush to the Airport where they assume everyone is still waiting for their flights. Being as this must be several hours later since they all met at the Airport, would everyone's flights really be delayed that long?

Four Stories - S4-E15

Plot hole: During the 4th act of this episode, Dawson and Joey spend an evening together as friends. When they are walking out of the coffee shop, they suddenly laugh and switch their coffee cups as if they had each others. This doesn't make logical sense, as they wouldn't know they had the wrong coffees without tasting them first, and if they had tasted them already inside the shop or knew they had the wrong coffees, they probably would have switched the cups then without waiting until they got outside. And usually the coffee is handed to the individual who ordered it, so they wouldn't be switched.

Downtown Crossing (2) - S5-E15

Plot hole: When Joey suddenly regains consciousness in the ER, she is sitting upright on the end of a hospital bed or gurney. But this doesn't make logical sense, because if she were really unconscious she would be laying down. Yet it's made very clear in that shot, that she is opening her eyes for the first time after fainting and being unconscious.

Coming Home - S4-E1

Plot hole: This scene reveals that Joey has brought Dawson a special gift from her sailing trip with Pacey. It's a brick from the foundation of Ernest Hemingway's home in the Florida Keys, symbolic to 'build the foundation of a friendship' between her and Dawson. In reality, it's highly unlikely that anyone would have allowed Joey to damage a foundation wall by prying out a large-sized brick; and steal it from the premises of a famous, historic home and landmark.

The Longest Day - S3-E20

Plot hole: At the beginning of the episode, when Joey and Pacey are kissing in the boathouse on the dock; he lifts her up and puts her on a counter right in front of a window. This window appears to look directly out over the nearby boats and dock, meaning they would have been in full view of all their friends waiting to christen Pacey's boat. Not very logical to be kissing on the sly, right in front of a window where everyone could see them.

Joey Potter and the Capeside Redemption - S6-E22

Plot hole: During this entire episode, Audrey is helping to film Dawson's movie by playing the role of Ms. Jacobs. We already know that Audrey is in the midst of Summer School at Worthington, but she is apparently staying down in Capeside during the entire time of filming. Audrey doesn't own a car in Boston, and it would be very difficult for her to commute every day to school and back. So why would she suddenly take off several days to do Dawson's movie when she is in the middle of Summer School classes? She mentions how boring the classes are, implying they are still going when she decides to do the film. Given that her academic standing is in jeapordy from missing almost an entire semester previously, it doesn't seem likely she would ditch her classes during the Summer to take off and film a movie.

All Good Things... (1) - S6-E23

Plot hole: When Jen and Jack are talking at the B&B, he picks up the bottle of pills from Jen's purse and asks her about them. She lies, telling him they are pills for Grams when in reality they are Jen's medication. But Jack is examining the label closely, and wouldn't he see pretty easily that Jen's name was listed instead of Grams? He had plenty of time to read the entire label.

Swan Song - S5-E23

Plot hole: Dawson and Audrey are planning to fly to LA together, and he already mentioned to Audrey that he needs to stay at her family home for awhile. But then at the end of the episode; Pacey talks Audrey into driving to LA with him, and Dawson is left to fly to LA by himself. Wouldn't this make for a very awkward situation if Dawson flew to LA a few days before Audrey arrived by car, and had to stay with her parents completely by himself having never met them before? Doesn't seem like something Dawson would do.

Show generally

Plot hole: During Season 4, at Graduation, Andy informs Jack that she is 'deferring Harvard for a year' and going back to Italy instead, as she is happy there. Therefore, it makes logical sense that we never see Andy's character in all of Season 5, when all the other major characters ended up in Boston together. But it doesn't explain Season 6, when Andy should have been back in Boston attending Harvard University. It isn't likely she would have jeopardised her education and deferred a prestigious college like Harvard for more than a year (they probably wouldn't allow it); and if she was, in fact attending Harvard in Boston during Season 6 and she was such good friends with everyone, surely she would have hung out with them at times! Everyone else did. It doesn't make logical sense that Andy was attending college in Boston along with everyone else that year, but they never saw her at all. And they never explained her absence at all in the scripts. Plus the fact that in the Series Finale, she is at Mass. General in Boston furthering her medical training; implies she did indeed attend Harvard for her undergraduate, Pre-Med education.

Winter's Tale - S4-E14

Plot hole: At the end of the episode, when Pacey and Joey finally sleep together, there is a moment before when they are both standing in front of the mirror talking. To the right of the mirror, there is a large window looking directly into the bedroom they are standing in. The curtains are pushed back, and you can see the outside through the window. Pacey and Joey make their way slowly towards the bed, making it clear they have one thing in mind. They don't seem to notice the window which would give full view to their bedroom and bed, and neither of them makes any attempt to close the curtains. Noone seems to care that anyone walking by would be able to look directly in on them while they are 'busy'.

Eastern Standard Time - S4-E18

Plot hole: When Jen introduces Joey to her father in his office, she calls her "Joey Potter from Capeside". But later when they are at dinner, Jen's father suddenly refers to Joey as "Josephine" which seems strange as he wasn't told that was her legal name, and only those who know her well would know that. Joey is not necessarily a nickname only for Josephine, so it wasn't just a logical deduction.

All Good Things... (1) - S6-E23

Plot hole: Dawson is in his bedroom, and hears a noise outside his window. He panics, and picks up his laptop to use as a 'weapon' if necessary, while approaching the window. This doesn't seem logical; because for one thing he knows Joey is in town and she has been coming in through that window for years, and wouldn't he think of that first? Also-highly unlikely Dawson would actually use a very expensive Apple laptop as a weapon when it could be damaged, and he relies on it extensively for his work as a Writer/Producer.

Escape from Witch Island - S3-E7

Plot hole: When Dawson, Joey, Jen and Pacey are stuck on Witch Island after dark-they are suddenly shown using strong flashlights to see their way. But they had never originally intended to be on Witch Island after dark, which was made clear when someone suggested leaving because 'it was starting to get dark'. They were only carrying light daypacks for their day trip, and Pacey even joked about how no-one had bothered packing any snacks. Therefore since no-one intended to be on the Island after dark, and they packed very light day packs without even food, why would they suddenly be carrying large flashlights? It's unlikely they would have bought them at the Witch Island Gift Store, as it wasn't shown and no-one seemed to pay for anything from there.

Winter's Tale - S4-E14

Plot hole: When Pacey and Joey run into Jen and Jack outside the restaurants, Jack suggests they all go to the pizza place near them. Joey and Pacey agree, and it is implied that all four of them are going to the same place to eat dinner together. But the next shot of inside the pizza restaurant only shows Joey and Pacey seated at a large table with Drue, Anna and the other guys. Jen and Jack are nowhere in sight. It isn't likely Jen and Jack wouldn't be seated with or near Pacey and Joey for dinner, since they suggested they all go there to eat.

Mistakes

At the end of the episode, Dawson is seated in the kitchen talking to Pacey in a normally loud voice. At the same time, Joey and Charlie are awake and talking in the pup tent in the living room, very close to the kitchen. Later in the Season we learn that Joey had no idea Dawson had driven down to Florida to see her, as apparently he left without seeing or talking to her. But being in such close proximity that morning; there is no way Joey would not have been able to hear Dawson's voice as he talked with Pacey. The living room was close enough to the kitchen, so it doesn't make sense that Joey wouldn't have known Dawson was there and if she did-she would have gone to talk to him.
