Coming Home is the premiere of Season 4 of Dawson's Creek.


Joey and Pacey return from blissful and romantic nautical getaway to face their Senior year at Capeside High and confront their friends' curiosity.


Joey and Pacey return from a blissful and romantic summer traveling the east coast aboard Pacey's boat, the "True Love." Now they have to face their senior year at Capeside High and before classes begin, they must confront their friends and the one question that's on everyone's minds…Did they or didn't they? Regardless, a lot has changed and the lovers wonder if Capeside was better off without them. Dawson has every intention of avoiding the happy couple forever, but Jen orchestrates an encounter between them at an end of summer party. While struggling with the fact that her boyfriend, Henry, has suddenly been sent away to school, Jen helps Dawson realize that he must confront his feelings and his friends' relationship sooner or later. While all may not be forgiven, the bond between Dawson and Joey has not yet been forgotten. Meanwhile, Pacey's life is shaken up when his sister, Gretchen (Sasha Alexander), returns to Capeside and Andie gets a lesson in authentic French kissing from an exchange student (Jason Daniel Roberts, "The Real World's" Danny).
