ever since i was a little kid, i’ve loved the very special episodes of my favorite tv shows. i’m weird like that. my favorite happy days ever? well, of course it’s the 2-parter where pinky tuscadero comes to town for the demolition derby, nearly cracks her skull open and then breaks fonzie’s heart.
favorite little house on the prairie? the one where the blind school burns down and mary and adam’s baby is killed ties with the one where mary actually finds out she’s going blind.
the family ties where alex’s friends is killed in a car accident and then alex p. keaton rages against the machine? love it.
so it only makes perfect sense that my absolute all-time favorite episode of dawson’s creek is the very last one. the one where jen dies and joey chooses pacey.
yes, i love this episode. and that explains why i’ve watched it about 8 times since it arrived from netflix last week. yes, i needed a hit. i had watched all the seasons thus far released and was missing the creek. it’s sad, i know.
so next to compulsively checking the new york times’ obituaries, you can add the watching of the final episode of dawson’s creek to my list of weird addictions.
