The heart is a fragile thing. Break it too badly, and it might well never recover
—Ms. Freckling
Secrets & Lies is the 6th episode of Season 3 of Dawson's Creek.


TRUTH BE TOLD – Dawson (James Van Der Beek) is torn about telling Jen (Michelle Williams) the scandalous secret he has about Eve (guest star Brittany Daniel) and even more distressed when his mom (Mary-Margaret Humes) unexpectedly returns from Philadelphia. Meanwhile, Andie (Meredith Monroe) accuses Joey (Katie Holmes) of sabotaging her chance to reunite with Pacey (Joshua Jackson); and Jen shocks the entire town with the entertainment she has hired for the Annual Homecoming Queen Gala and shocks the very shy Henry (guest star Michael Pitt) even more when she asks him to be her escort.
