WHAT HAPPENS One of the four leads -- Dawson, Pacey, Jen, or Joey -- dies young in this two-hour series finale. Long-absent creator Kevin Williamson returns to write the show, which jumps five years into the future (for those who've lost track, that means we're catching up with the ''Creek'' crew in their mid-20s). In a ''Scream''-like touch, Dawson has found success by producing an autobiographical show, ''The Creek.'' He, Pacey, Joey, and Jen reunite in Capeside to see Dawson's mom get remarried -- just in time for the aforementioned death (Jen is our guess).
WHY YOU GOTTA SEE IT To say goodbye to an old fave -- and to see if Joey finally decides between Pacey and Dawson.
