Storyline

After Mitch suddenly dies in a car accident, Dawson has to handle the funeral arrangements where everybody comes to give him and Gail support as Dawson tries not to breakdown upon his father's sudden death. Gail, unlike Dawson, is not holding up very well and feels sorry for six-month-old Lily, who will never know how her father was like. Everybody, including Joey, Jen, Jack, Pacey and even Grams Ryan try to comfort Dawson in their own way, and Dawson starts to blame himself for his father's death. Written by Anonymous

Sad Moment In Dawson's Creek
2 November 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is an extremely sad moment in Dawson's Creek. Mitch Lerry was killed in a car accident in this episode. Dawson blames his fathers death on him and handles the death very difficult not letting any of his friends in on his grief. Pacey sets things straight with Dawson though showing him that his fathers death was not his fault one bit. You don't see Dawson cry once in this episode not even at Mitch's funeral until the end when he completely breaks down and makes the episode that much more powerful. Although really sad, I enjoyed the episode and thought the music was just spot on and all the moments were captured to perfection.
