Love Bites is the 18th episode of Season 6 on WB teen drama Dawson's Creek.


Jen's (Michelle Williams) seemingly happy world comes crashing down when she learns that Grams (Mary Beth Peil) has breast cancer. Meanwhile, Joey's (Katie Holmes) tumultuous love life continues when Eddie (Oliver Hudson) reveals his true reasons for returning to Boston, and Pacey (Joshua Jackson) agrees to join Joey as she chaperones for Harley's (Mika Boorem) school dance, but what should be a magical night doesn't feel right for Joey. Although he is at first reluctant, Pacey agrees to invest Dawson's (James Van Der Beek) life savings to finance his new film project.
