On Dawson's advice, Joey attempts to heal the wounds of her romance with Jack which has been left shattered by rumors and innuendo. Meanwhile, Jack and Andie's father, Joseph McPhee, arrives in town for a get-together which brings out old family tensions which leads Jack confronting his innermost secrets. For the first time in his life, Pacey stands up for what he believes in when he takes on the mean-spirited Mr. Peterson. But the consequences of his convictions are more than Pacey could have imagined when he's suspended from school and Peterson makes his personal agenda to fail Pacey with unethical means. Pacey then sets out to ruin Mr. Peterson by investigating and challenging his authority with a code of conduct book over his teaching methods. Also, Jen thinks that Ty may not be the guy for her when she sees little amusement in his stereotypical comments especially over Jack's true sexual orientation, while Grams is surprisingly understanding and supportive.

Did You Know?


Joseph McPhee: You are not gay.
Jack: Yes, I am! You know it. I see how you look at me - and I know you know. Think about how you treated me and the way you treated Tim. Because he was the real son, and I was different. And as hard as you've tried to stamp it out or to ignore it, I've tried harder. I've tried harder than you, to be quiet, and to forget, and to not bother my family with my problem. But I can't try anymore, because it hurts. I'm sorry, Dad. Andie, I'm sorry. I don't want to be going through this. But...

The One With Jack, and Andie's Dad...
11 October 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode. It was a good followup to the episode before, where it is discovered that Jack is actually gay.

In this episode, Joey tries to heal her wounds about her, and Jack's relationship, but is finding it a struggle. Jack, and Andie's Father comes into town, and doesn't approve of Jack's newly released-to-people "decision" to be gay. I used quote marks because it's not a choice, but Jack's Father tries to defend that it is. In the end, they send him away, and don't want anything to do with him. Meanwhile, Pacey continues to stand up for Jack against Mr. Peterson, and is faced with the decision to apologise or get suspended.

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Great.
