The final season of Dawson's Creek is when the series becomes Joey's Bar. With the titular character (James Van Der Beek) mostly on the opposite coast working for tyrannical director Todd (Hal Ozsan) and dating an actress (Biana Kajlich), the series' other central protagonists tend to gather only at Joey's (Katie Holmes) workplace, a Boston college bar called Hell's Kitchen. But those central characters usually went their separate ways, becoming the linchpins around which wound an array of new characters who were coincidentally interconnected. Working at the bar are Emma (Megan Gray)--a punk rocker who ends up rooming with Pacey (Joshua Jackson) and Jack (Kerr Smith) and whose band Audrey (Busy Phillipps) joins as lead vocalist--and Eddie (Oliver Hudson), who's Joey's main antagonist in a lit class taught by an antagonistic professor (Roger Howarth). While Joey is busy at Worthington, Jack and Jen (Michelle Williams) are at Boston Bay College, where both are attracted to a pop-culture professor (Sebastian Spence), but Jen ends up dating a help-line worker (Jensen Ackles). Pacey goes Gordon Gecko in a new job as a stock broker mentored by a cut-throat businessman (Dana Ashbrook). The lack of interaction among the main characters proved the biggest drawback to this era of Dawson's Creek, but when they were put together, sparks could still fly, such as when Pacey and Joey get locked in a Super K-Mart overnight, or when an old romance--and rivalry--is rekindled. Season 6 was also the end of Dawson's Creek, and the episodes improved as they drew to their inevitable conclusion, peaking in the devastating series finale. Creator Kevin Williamson returned to write a flash-forward in which the main characters are 25, and a reunion in Capeside leads to tragedy and some final decisions. --David Horiuchi

But series six takes a turn for the different. The key characters aren't really interacting all that much (until the finale), previous cast add-ons have disappeared without mention (where is Oliver? the Capeside families?) and the new cast are plain poor. Emma's accent is cringe-inducingly awful and Eddie comes across condescending and with no obvious spark with Joey. Moreover, when did Audrey's character become strong enough to develop her own story-line? What are Jack Osbourne and No Doubt doing in Dawson's Creek?? And what is up with Pacey's facial hair???
All of the previous faults on other DVD releases of DC are present here too - the lack of the original music being a key detractor.
And yet, there are some real highlights to savour as well. Dawson's interaction with Todd is superb. Episode ten, back in Capeside for Christmas is hugely entertaining, as is episode 15, with Joey and Pacey trapped in a dept store overnight. And then the real reason that any fan of the series has to own this set, the four final episodes, all set back in Capeside and the double-length finale set in the future wrap up very nicely the key characters and bring the focus back where it should be.
We are left in no doubt that the kids end up alright and (despite not entirely enjoying the finale the first time around) you end up realising that is exactly what you wanted to see.
The sixth series sees the appearance of a few new characters including Eddie (joey's other half) who i found to be a good character and a good boyfriend for her because he let her escape into a relationship which didn't have the problems of her relationships with pacey and dawson in it. Emma the british roommate was great - although her accent was bad at times, she was fun. Jen's boyfriend CJ and Jack's boyfriend David were great characters to add as well and saw them both in happy relationships.
This series also saw Audrey have a bigger storyline and one that i thought suited her character. Just like Andie had her storylines in series 2 and 3, Audrey had hers in series 5 and 6.
The parents were not in it that much but then again this show is about these 5 kids growing up and thats exactly what this show was about. The 5 main characters (Dawson, Joey, Pacey, Jen and Jack) returning once more and going through the ups and downs we can relate to - falling in and out of love, dealing with our past relationships, family troubles, college and many more situations.
Dawson and Joey finally get together although soon troubles come betweem them and separate them, and we see Pacey and Joey rekindle their love (best episodes 'Clean and Sober' and 'Castaways') only to be broken up again. Towards the end of the series we see that despite the years, Pacey and Dawson never really became friends again because of their love for Joey.
The 2-hour series finale is the best episode though which sees the five main characters, five years on and back in Capeside for a wedding. We see where their lives have led them (what dreams have come true and which jobs they have) and this episodes brings both surprises and heartbreak.The strong friendship between Jack and Jen still remains and we finally see the love triangle between Dawson, Joey and Pacey come to an end as Joey reveals who she is meant to be with and therefore breaks one's heart while settling down with the right guy.
I've loved this show since the very beginning and despite what people sya i think it has been strong throughout its time. Its my favourite show and will remain so for a long time.
This is a great end to a truly fantastic show!
