So this next scene is painful in the extreme, and I will therefore keep it short. taMAHra is at her warehouse apparently cleaning, or stacking things, or something. Pacey shows up and tells her he's looked up Pinter and identified him as the king of subtext, and noted that is characters would say one thing and mean another: "We're big on that in Capeside" and taMAHra says she's noticed. Pacey wants to have a moment without all the subtext. She doesn't know if they can, since words have always gotten them into so much trouble. Pacey says he bets she thinks he came to her house the other day to confess and tell her, essentially, that he's not over all the old feelings and that he's missed her, but he says that really he's fine, and that he thinks he shouldn't be over it but he is, and he had really come to tell her that he's fine, and he's grown up. And she says she can tell. And he says that this is goodbye. And then they start kissing. Oh God. Okay, thank God, I have the commercials to regroup.
Okay, that was some rough going there, but I've got it together now. Okay, so we're back at the warehouse, where Pacey and taMAHra are still kissing, and then they stop, mutually, and are all hot and bothered and confused and they let go of each other, and then taMAHra says she has a buyer coming in an hour and that she has to clean up, and he asks if that's subtext, and she quite tearfully answers, "No!" So Pacey reassures her that he knows it's over, but that he just has to know: "Do you miss...teaching?" And she answers, "Yes. Very much." And this causes Pacey to choke up and tell her, "Because I miss you teaching, very much." Then he walks out. And I know I shouldn't have liked that scene, but I kind of did.
