Merry Mayhem is the 10th episode of Season 6 on WB teen drama Dawson's Creek.


Dawson (James Van Der Beek) and Gail (Mary-Margaret Humes) invite everyone back to Capeside for Christmas, but things aren't very merry. Dawson confronts Natasha (Bianca Kajlich) about her night with another man; Joey's (Katie Holmes) happiness that Eddie (Oliver Hudson) accepts her invitation quickly turns sour when her father (guest star Gareth Williams), on temporary parole, expresses his disapproval of their relationship; Pacey (Joshua Jackson) returns home with an expensive new car and fancy gifts to impress his family; Jen (Michelle Williams) spends her time consoling Grams (Mary Beth Peil) whose boyfriend dumped her; and Audrey (Busy Philipps) gets loaded on a combination of liquor and pills and crashes in more ways than one.
