Episode 201 - A Reunion: James gets a letter from his Dawson’s Creek cast members asking for a reunion show. June is thrilled by the idea, but James promptly rips up the letter. As he says…
Feeling on top of the world, James takes Chloe out for an extravagant night on the town. June is so upset that James would pass up an opportunity to make her inner-tween dreams come true, that she puts together a presentation to convince James to do the reunion show. One of her convincing arguments is the below image. We're not really sure what she was going for her either but, whatever it is, we agree.
The whole presentation Chloe tries to distract everyone.
To Chloe’s horror, James takes the bait and wants to move forward with the reunion show. Chloe then reveals to June that she’s been sending the fake reunion request letters in order to get James to feel better about himself. Chloe makes it her mission to dissuade James from going through with the reunion by attacking June and forcing James to sit through a marathon of past horrible, failed reunion shows.
He's a little worried, but he still wants to go through with it. He meets up with Busy Phillips for lunch, who admits that the cast of Dawson’s Creek hates him for stiffing them on crew presents when the show ended.
Desperate for a reunion, he accosts a fellow former TV star, Frankie Muniz, in the supermarket. Frankie is just plain weirded out and doesn't get on board with James's ideas of a mashup reunion show. Finally, there’s nothing left to do but for Chloe to form a reunion show intervention. Who better to guest star at the event than Saved by the Bell’s Mark-Paul Gosselaar. He tells James to leave the past in the past. He also uses this opportunity to pitch his book, “Ta-Da! Finding the Now.”
To destroy his past from popping up once and for all, James burns all reminders of Dawson’s Creek. Now there’s really no turning back.
