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

Factual error: When Jack is carrying Jen out of Pacey's restaurant, she bends her head down. You can see that her now very long, curly hair is real and has a natural part. But this episode was in reality filmed right after the preceding episodes in Season 6, not 5 years later. And in the later episodes of Season 6 Jen had dramatically shorter hair. Although in the context of being 5 years later Jen's much longer hair makes factual sense, in reality it isn't possible that she could have grown her hair out that quickly between the Finale and the episodes filmed before it. So how did she? The shorter hair didn't appear to be a wig. (00:26:20)

Suggested correction: This isn't an error, it's someone questioning how short hair could have grown long-even if it were the case that here hair magically grew, it's not a mistake! It's also not a mistake to have natural-looking supplemental hair. That is the case here. The part may look natural, but you can see that a great deal of Jen's hair is actually a shorter length, all around her head. No one in their right mind would cut layers like this, because it doesn't blend cleanly and would be a pain to style. When you have layers, you cut them in a way that they move with the rest of the hair, not stand out. However, when you have short hair and you add extensions, this is exactly what happens, and you choose a style where you can more easily hide the shorter hair (like waves), as the stylist did here. When you know what to look for and re-watch the scenes, you will easily see Jen's shorter real hair (about chin length) is supplemented with longer extensions (to roughly mid-chest length). This looks much better than the scenes where the shorter hair is rather lumpily gathered at the back of her head and extended with a faux ponytail.

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.

Suggested correction: Eve closed the window before they hid under the table.

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.

Suggested correction: You have it backwards. To be a 16-year old freshman Henry wouldn't have skipped a year - he would have had to repeat one. As you put it, he's not exactly "intellectually motivated," so it's plausible to think he did indeed repeat a year.

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?

Suggested correction: Bodie didn't make the pancakes (at least not all of them) it was his recipe.

Suggested correction: Joey is upset that Jen and Dawson are going out in the first place. It's not surprising that in her frustration, she wasn't paying attention to what she was doing, or else purposefully short-changed them on coke out of spite.

Coming Home - S4-E1

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Joey and Pacey have arrived back at Capeside, and are getting things ready to get off the "True Love," in one shot you can see the microphone clipped to the back of Joey's shorts.

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.

...Must Come to an End (2) - S6-E24

Question: The ending scene of the Series Finale shows Joey and Pacey apparently living together in a high-rise apartment. The TV looks the same as her NYC apartment, and there is a beautiful window view of lighted high-rise buildings and a harbor or bay. The question is - is this Boston or NYC? Are they living in her previous NYC apartment, or did they find a new place together in nearby Boston? It looked to me more like Boston, but Pacey had just started his restaurant business in Capeside and that is an hour away. Where are they living at the end of the series? It was vague to me.

Answer: It's the same apartment Joey had in NYC. Comparing it to the beginning of the Finale; you can tell it's exactly the same location, furnishings, Plasma TV etc. Apparently Chris was only living with her at HER apartment, and now Pacey has taken his place at the end. I guess this implies Pacey successfully started his own restaurant business in NYC as he had dreamed, to be with Joey.
