Full Moon Rising is the 5th episode on Season 2 on WB teen drama Dawson's Creek.


BLAME IT ON THE MOON – On edge because of the ominous full moon, Dawson (James Van Der Beek) and Joey's (Katie Holmes) budding romance is overshadowed by the continuing deterioration of Mitch (John Wesley Shipp) and Gale's (Mary-Margaret Humes) marriage and Dawson's shattering discovery of his parents' Thursday night secret. Meanwhile, a promising first date is interrupted when Pacey (Joshua Jackson) gets a disturbing glimpse into Andie's (Meredith Monroe) home life, and Jen (Michelle Williams) plays with fire when she dates a mysterious older man (guest star Joe Flanigan).


The poem left by the mysterious guest at The Ice House, read by Joey:

by moonlight many years ago
my true love did I know
by that moon I begged her wake
but that night did she go
young lovers – heed my word!
don't squander love away
the moon is changing ever still
soon comes the light of day


  • Jen tries to return to her New York behaviour, but it's obvious she can't.
  • Andie and Pacey plan a first date.
