like for me to tell you about it or would you like to see it?
Are you sure?
OK, Jack and Joey are together. Jack writes this poem from which it becomes
clear that hes gay and a few episodes later he even admits this
and hmm, lets see what else happens
Yeah, and his
family begins to break apart, they already had trouble beforehand and
his father cant accept that hes gay and Andie begins to crack
up. She was already on depression medication before that and dyes her
hair dark brown and really becomes depressive.
_And what happens to Joey and Jack?
They split up but remain good friends. And a few episodes later, Joey
realizes that he is actually in
love with Dawson, so they get back together again. And Jen, oh yes, did
you get that story about Abby?
_Jen still went out with that Catholic guy?
Yes, but they soon split up, since he doesnt at all fit together
with her. I cant remember anymore now, I think she still goes out
with someone else, but I dont know anymore than that. Only
then, much later, I dont know how many episodes later, she and Abby
become friends again and towards the end, I think theyre at a party
and drunk and Abby falls into the water, drowns and dies.
Yes, she dies! And Andie has to give a speech at her grave, I think this
is the moment she cracks up, since she begins seeing people who have long
been dead. And towards the end of that part of the series, Dawson and
Joey are back together again. Jack is a good friend, Jen is thrown out
of the house by her grandmother, because hmm, well why did I forget
and Jen moves back in with Jack.
_With Jack? (..)
