Season 4 wasn't awful for them until Joey lied to Dawson about sleeping with Pacey. I thought their relationship up until that point unfolded quite beautifully.

You have a point here.

Pretty much. They had a realistic, mature relationship that included some arguements but despite falsehoods they did resolve their fights and talked it out. Then after that it made them come out stronger as a couple, it's worse to let it linger which they never did. The only bad fight they had was in Promicide then in Seperation Anxiety they made up and healed (another realistic portrayal of a couple breaking up) Hell, every couple on this show had fights and way worse ones IE Dawson/Joey and Mitch/Gail so I don't get the obsession to say they always fought when they didn't. Even after Joey lied (which I still hate) she told Dawson the truth then right after that she refused to let Pacey go after he asked her to so he doesn't hold her back. Over the course of the season they always stressed they planned to stay together no matter what the future had for the other.

I just want to steer us back to the topic of the Thread which is the True Love episode.

I wish Joey had been strong enough right from the beginning to face Dawson about her feelings for Pacey because by the time we got to True Love, Joey was just going through the motions of being Dawson's friend and that really wasn't fair to Dawson. I know he's the one that gave her the ultimatum, but they should have talked it out the way Pacey and Joey talked things out. It would have helped them both in the long run.

I'm going to play devil's advocate and say that Joey was afraid to lose Dawson because he was one of the few stable presences in her life. She already lost her mother to cancer and her father to jail. She didn't want to lose Dawson too and that was why she waited for his acceptance to go after Pacey.

There is definitely truth to that statement.

Joey's problem, all through out the show, has always been because she's afraid. She likes to retract a lot of her decisions. That's why there are really times that I get frustrated with her

Regarding about Dawson, I know that he will always be pivotal in Joey's life and decision. He occupies a big part of Joey's life that is really hard to let go. So i kind of understand the ~situation~


but of course, I am happy she sailed away with Pacey.

I was ecstatic when she went to Pacey and sailed away into the sunset. It was just the right choice.
