A DEFINING MOMENT – As Capeside prepares for the annual spring regatta, Dawson (James Van Der Beek) and Pacey (Joshua Jackson) compete for the winning trophy, only Joey (Katie Holmes) is tired of feeling like the prize. Meanwhile, after many weeks of mixed messages, Gale (Mary-Margaret Humes) makes the first move with Mitch (John Wesley Shipp), and after Jen (Michelle Williams) finally forgives Henry (guest star Michael Pitt) for his one-track mind, he gives Jen the most romantic night of her life.
Andie, Joey, Pacey and Dawson are all recovering from the events of the previous episode. Dawson wants to mend fences with Joey and challenge Pacey. Joey wants them all to be friends again, while a hurt Andie supports Dawson, and Will tries to help her see reason. Jack reluctantly agrees to help Dawson in the Regatta and Jen is mad with Henry.
