Storyline

Joey's worst nightmare comes true when she accidentally sends a very personal e-mail she wrote for Dawson to the entire student body. The next morning, Joey's e-mail is the topic of virtually all campus discussions when Professor Hetson cruelly decides to debate it with his students just to see Joey squirm at the talk. Meanwhile, Jack makes an attempt to get to know his cultural professor, Mark Freeman, better, but he pays no attention to Jack. Pacey, while struggling to survive the first days on his new job, closes a very important deal for the firm, which his wheeling-dealing mentor Rich Rinaldi takes full credit for. Eddie, at student in Joey's reading class and whom works as the bartender at Hell's Kitchen, persuades Joey to confront any challenge that Hetson throws and not show any weakness because the stern and misogynistic Hetson thrives on it.
