LOVE WILL KEEP US TOGETHER – Joey (Katie Holmes) is distraught when her just-paroled father (guest star Gareth Williams) will be making his reintroduction into society by catering a posh wedding attended by all the bluebloods of Capeside, but the drama at the ceremony pales in comparison to the night's tragic end. Meanwhile, Dawson (James Van Der Beek) and his mom (Mary-Margaret Humes) share a pep talk about her desire to win Mitch back, but Mitch's (John Wesley Shipp) new squeeze Nicole (guest star Madchen Amick, "Twin Peaks," "Fantasy Island") stands in their way, while Abby (Monica Keena) and Jen (Michelle Williams) decide to crash the wedding for a little excitement, and Pacey (Joshua Jackson) tries to put a chink in Andie's (Meredith Monroe) armor of cynicism.
