Abby Morgan, Rest in Peace is the 19th episode of Season 2 on WB teen drama Dawson's Creek.


ASHES TO ASHES – The stunning news of the tragic death of a Capeside teen abruptly curtails Dawson (James Van Der Beek) and Joey's (Katie Holmes) long-awaited reconciliation, and while they try to sort through their own feelings of loss, Jen (Michelle Williams) is appalled by what she feels is blatant hypocrisy on the part of her mourning classmates. Meanwhile, Pacey (Joshua Jackson) is deeply concerned by Andie's (Meredith Monroe) drastic reaction to the accident, which triggers something in her about her dead brother.
