As a result, Dawson seeks solace with his growing hobby of photography and confiding in Gretchen about his troubles. Meanwhile, Joey seeks advice from Jen because she has the feeling sexual intimacy with Pacey is approaching. Jen tells her to go to the clinic as prevention. Bessie finds out and berates Joey about the risks of sex.
