Of course this isn't an easy thing to do when Joey starts to get concerned over the attention that Anna is bestowing on Pacey. Meanwhile, Dawson has his own problems when he and Gretchen go out with two of her college friends and he realizes the span in between their ages. Also, Jack finally gets some positive attention from Tobey when he asks Jack for help in teach reading to grade school kids, and Mr. Brooks becomes more weaker from his illness during the final completion on Dawson's documentary. Knowing that his days are numbered, Mr. Brooks tells Dawson to continue to follow his dream as a filmmaker and not let the love of his life (Joey) slip away, and end up like him: a bitter, misanthropic, lonely old man.
