"Decisions" (formerly "Breaking Away")
Season 1 Finale
Theresa - Two Cents Reviewer
A contentious episode, the Season 1 finale gives Joey a tough dilemma: take the opportunity to spend a semester in France, or stay and explore a relationship with Dawson?
Dawson and Joey have a self-referential conversation about TV cliffhangers (since the finale is one). Dawson thinks they keep people interested, but Joey thinks that they trick the audience into thinking something different will happen when it won't. Just like their lives, she says, they're so predictable.
