Not to sound like a blob of paint, Dawson, but can we just let this one remain unresolved for now?
Tamara's Return is the 4th episode of Season 2 of Dawson's Creek.


EXPRESS YOURSELF – When Joey (Katie Holmes) pursues her natural gift as an artist, a chasm develops between her and Dawson (James Van Der Beek) as he can't relate to this new interest, while Jack (Kerr Smith) displays a new side beyond his lack of waitering skills as a sensitive art lover. Meanwhile, Tamara Jacobs' (guest star Leann Hunley) unexpected return to Capeside throws Pacey (Joshua Jackson) for a major loop just as he and Andie (Meredith Monroe) discover a common ground and move past their sadistic sparring.
