Dawson's Creek: Boyfriend

While attempting to rebuild their marriage, the tension between Mitch and Gale finally hits a breaking point. Joey, feeling pressured about school and things between her and Dawson, lets off too much steam of at a beach party and gets herself into a sticky situation, which Pacey has to save her from. Meanwhile, Jen’s old boyfriend from New York shows up in town, causing tensions between her and Dawson – especially when the guy decides to crash on Dawson’s Floor.
