Dawson's Creek

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.

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 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.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: As a suggestion: Most, but not all high schools are four years in length. My understanding is season one is actually their freshman year. Joey is debating going off to France. Season two begins, they shared their kiss, and must be ending freshman year approaching sophomore year in the next few episodes, meaning it isn't late at all to have class elections. Pacey, Dawson, and Joey all turn sixteen in season two, they had to have been barely sophomores.

The Importance of Not Being Too Earnest - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: When Joey accesses her email address book to send an email to Dawson, she inadvertently hits the address above his, sending her email to the entire Worthington campus. Dawson's email address in Joey's address book is DawsonLeery@worthington.edu. Dawson does not go to Worthington and would not have a campus email account.

Pilot (aka Emotions in Motion) - S1-E1

Trivia: There was an alternate scene filmed for the Pilot Presentation, where Tamara is first introduced in the Video Store with Pacey and Dawson. In this alternate scene; the location was an actual Video Store located in Southport, about 50 miles away from Wilmington, NC. They decided to reshoot the scene using a smaller Video Store in Wilmington that didn't look like a chain. Once the show was picked up for a Series, they needed a Video Store location that they could use easily every week. Also, in the alternate scene Tamara is wearing a more conservative outfit of black that covered her quite a bit. They put her in a much sexier dress for the aired version. Tamara's wardrobe and the location were changed to give a better tone to the show.
