Joey (Katie Holmes) returns to Capeside to find Dawson's (James Van Der Beek) script on her doorstep and is overwhelmed that he has written a story about three friends, but Dawson's movie-making dreams are shattered when Pacey (Joshua Jackson) comes clean about losing Dawson's money. The ensuing fight opens old wounds and leaves the three friends believing their friendship will never be the same. Back in Boston, Jen (Michelle Williams) has invited her mother (guest star Mimi Rogers) from New York with the intent of telling her that she, Jack (Kerr Smith) and Grams (Mary Beth Peil) are moving to New York so Grams' can get the medical care she needs.
