Ugh, that anti-prom scene. Dawson was just so....his immaturity and whining was really brought up a notch in that scene, and that's saying something, i tell you.

Where's season 1 Joey with a lunch tray to knock him out when you need her

And poor Joey is saying that it shouldn't matter who she dances with because Dawson said going to Prom was about getting their friendship back on-track, and then Dawson is all I said it was about moving forward, you can't have thought that just meant friendship. Oh I don't know how Joey could have possibly been so silly and naive to believe that, maybe because THAT'S WHAT YOU TOLD HER when you freaking held her to the childhood pact to go together in the first place

I mean Joey literally jumped back and flinched at the way he turned around screaming at her. How did the writers think this was an okay way for their lead character to behave, how did they never think that Dawson owed both Joey and Pacey an apology for the way he treated them :headdesk:

That seems to be the biggest head scratcher and I'd love to hear them give an explanation for all that. If they had cameras in the writers room we'd be able to hear some of their reasoning first hand. If only.

And they got that his behaviour was unacceptable and they spend time on trying to win the audience back to him in season 4, but for some reason couldn't bring themselves to have Dawson admit that he didn't handle himself well at that time either and apologise

And urgh Dawson didn't just kiss Joey after that screaming tantrum, he was also saying "you'd be missing a lot" if you didn't pick him. Yeah, I can see that

IKR? And an apology from Dawson I think would have made such a big difference.

Yeah, i would have hated him a little less if he had apologized. He would have been redeemed slightly in my eyes.

I'm afraid I lost interest in Dawson around the beginning of season 2 and after that I just became bored or irritated by him (especially in seasons 3 and 4). He became more bearable in season 5 but I wouldn't have missed him if he had not been there (not good for a title character!).

I think the writers were so busy trying to impress us that he was an idealistic dreamer they didn't realise it made him come across as a self-obsessed immature child a lot of the time. A shame really.

It could have been written so nicely because people love to watch the idealistic dreamer... It keeps things innocent! But I agree, they took it too far and instead of innocent, we got immature and childlike.

Yeah, it was always hard having to relate every negative thing i had to say about Dawson to Joey. I had to check myself several times.

So did I, lol. I understand why most boards don't have these threads (because they can get out of control in the wrong fandom) but it's really nice to have a place to vent about characters who are endlessly frustrating like Dawson was.

And I agree with you guys, an apology would've made a big difference. I was glad that he at least worked on his friendship with Joey in S4 but I loathed him for not giving Pacey the same time and respect.
