Hurricane is the 5th episode of Season 1 of Dawson's Creek.


CAPESIDE UNDER SIEGE -- When the Leerys, the Potters, Jen (Michelle Williams) and her grandmother (Mary Beth Peil) are confined to the Leery house during a hurricane, temperaments run high when Dawson (James Van Der Beek) angrily confronts his mother about her affair; Gale (Mary-Margaret Humes) confesses the error of her ways, shattering Mitch's (John Wesley Shipp) world; and Jen's grandmother exchanges acrimonious words with Bessie (Nina Repeta) and Bodie (guest star Obi Ndefo) about their relationship and their unborn child. Meanwhile, across town, Pacey (Joshua Jackson) and Tamara (guest star Leann Hunley) struggle to keep their emotions under control as they weather out the storm in her house with Pacey's older brother, Deputy Doug Witter (guest star Dylan Neal).
