Did You Know?


Near the end of season two, Joey visits her mother's grave after Abby Morgan's funeral. You see the name on the grave is Lillian Josephine Potter. From that you assume Joey is named after her mother. Then in Season 3, when Joey goes to visit a college and meets A.J. - she talks about how her favorite book is Little Women because her mom named her after one of the characters. This may be true, but wouldn't it make more sense if Joey was named after her mother with the same name? See more »


Pacey: Hey, what if Abby's mother saw us come in here together? She probably thinks I'm trying to get lucky in the middle of her daughter's memorial.

The One With The Funeral...
24 October 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really like this episode, which makes me sad, because I loved Abby as a character. She was such a bitch, and I loved it. But this episode is sad, especially Jen's reaction to Abby's death.

In this episode, Capeside is in mourning for Abby Morgan. Well, not necessarily mourning, but everyone's being nice about her, now that she's dead. But at the funeral, Jen says the truth. About how Abby was a nasty person, who really didn't care about anyone else. She says some pretty harsh stuff, even though most of it was true. Joey is afraid to attend the funeral, as she thinks it will bring up stuff about her Mother. And Abby's Mother asked Andie to deliver the eulogy, because she thought they were friends, which they definitely weren't.

Best part of the episode: Jen's speech.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
