Yeah, I kind of liked her with Henry up until the end. Same with Charlie. I like that Jen wasn't defined by any of her relationships though, she was a very strong, independent character. She had important relationships with her family and friends, but they didn't define who she was. She grew a lot over the course of the series so I think the writers did something right with her, even if she got the short end of the stick sometimes.

Well said! I agree, the essence of her character wasn't in her relationships, she always had this independence in her character. I think that is something really special about her. When I think about some of the characters on the show I immediately link them to ships, but with Jen it's different. She had such a sense of being true to herself, no matter who she was with. I loved that about her.


Don't get me started on Jen & Henry I shipped them so bad, I really loved them together

Well-said both of you. That's why I love Jen soooo freaking much.

I agree. I have that movie on DVD, and she was wonderful in it, and she really channeled Marilyn Monroe incredibly well. She's so talented. She's by far the most talented and successful actor from this show. No one else even comes close.

I highly agree. I'm surprised she didn't win more awards during her time on the show.

Jen and Michelle were sorely underrated while DC was on, but over the years, she has gained more popularity with old and new fans alike. It's great to see her get the recognition she has always deserved. Michelle is a lovely person inside and out so I'm glad her career has started to take off in the last few years.

That is so true I think now, after all this time, she is the shining star of the cast. The other cast members have done great as well since the show ended, but Michelle's career is just in another place. I think she has come so far as an actress and she has grown so much (not unlike her character), it's wonderful to watch her.

Yes, she's done some great movies in the last few years. Hopefully there are even more to come!

Other than Dawson, I don't really ship Jen with anyone, and I feel bad about that! But I agree with what Anka has said before - that Jen is such a strong and independent character, where when you think of her, you don't all of a sudden pair her with another character, the way you do with Dawson/Joey, Joey/Pacey, etc. So I like that about Jen.

Yeah me too It's something quite unique with television shows, especially those set in high school where romance always plays a big factor.

I shipped her with Dawson and Henry (I really liked Henry!)
