Joey nervously looking around for Jen beside the track at Grand Central.
Jen in the back seat of a cab in the rain, crying.
Dawson sleeping in a Sun King pose beside the fire, and Gretchen twitching as glycerin runs down her face.
Pacey coming home to his open schoolbooks, and staring sadly into the mirror above his desk.
The PA announcer calling the departure of the train "to Capeside, Massachusetts." Okay, first of all, Amtrak covers New England service, except to southern Connecticut, and Amtrak runs out of Penn Station. I can let that go -- Grand Central is more pleasing to the eye -- but they'd have to take a train up the coast and then probably change for local service on the Cape, and the PA certainly would never call it as the train for Capeside, because, as we've heard endless times before, it's a tiny town. Anyway, Joey continues to wait and look sad and think Jen isn't going to show, and we pan down over the departure board to see Jen, looking wrung out and weaving through the crowd. Joey spots her, and her face relaxes and she raises a hand and mouths, "Hey," and Jen slows for a moment and smiles, glad to see a friendly face. They hug, and then Joey takes Jen's hand and they head for the train. Aw. That's sweet.
Then we pan-fade back to Tom Frost's office and Jen saying, "So it was good. I needed to go back, and I did. And now I'm done. I got what I needed." Tom Frost snorts that she knows she's not done, "not even close"; she's just "opened this door," and the two of them need to go through it together. Or something like that. Jen shakes her head dismissively and tells him that she's "finished," and when he tries to argue again, she cuts him off: "Tom, I get it. I do, and I appreciate it, and I'm -- I'm really glad we could do this, but I don't have anything else to say." Tom Frost looks sad, and there's a weird slo-mo shot of him raising a fist to his mouth. Pan out to Jen sitting on the couch. Cut to her picking up her bag. Cut to her hoisting her bag over her shoulder and turning to say goodbye -- all in slo-mo. She smiles and whispers, "See you around." Tom Frost, fist still at his mouth, extends his fingers by way of goodbye, and his hand shakes a little. Jen goes, and the episode ends on a shot of her closing the door behind her. Because -- oh, right. You get it.
Next week: Joey is late. Sars is already drunk.
