This episode is chock full of references to the cancelled ABC Family series Bunheads, and Garth Brooks. So if you’re a fan of those two things you are in for a treat. Thankfully there’s a lot for the rest of us to soak in as well! The Dance finds the gang considering going to their first high school dance. Dawson and Joey are together, Pacey and Andie are basically together, but what about Jen? This sounds like a prime chance for busy body Andie to set her brother up with the hot girl next door. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to anyone else, Jack is into Joey. Folks, it’s a mess. The important thing is that this is the episode where Jack and Jen meet, eventually to form what is arguably the purest relationship on Dawson’s creek, or perhaps on Television in general.
