Catch-22 is the 20th episode of Season 6 of Dawson's Creek.


Pacey (Joshua Jackson) is ordered by his superiors to sell stock owned by his biggest client just days before a federal ruling, but the consequences are severe when Pacey is accused of insider trading and realizes that the money he invested for Dawson (James Van Der Beek) is gone. Back at school, Eddie (Oliver Hudson) surprises Joey (Katie Holmes) with a trip to Europe for the summer, but a fiery conversation about how differently they live their lives leaves both of them questioning their future together.
