Instant Karma! is the 4th episode of Season 6 of Dawson's Creek.


Dawson (James Van Der Beek) finds himself in an awkward situation when he is put between Joey (Katie Holmes) and the intoxicated leading lady (guest star Bianca Kajlich, "Halloween: Resurrection") of his film, who also happens to be the woman he dumped over the phone after spending the night with Joey. Meanwhile, feeling like she's second fiddle to Pacey's (Joshua Jackson) new career and then catching him in a lie, Audrey (Busy Philipps) allows herself to be taken in by another man's charm.
