However, there was an explanation from the creator, Williamson’s side, who went on to explain why he went with Pacey and Joey. Though he mentioned that perhaps the after story of them would be to get married, they will divorce too. However, they had a strong connection and might again reconcile. On why he did not go for Dawson and Joey, Williamson explained that the ending was not sitting right with him. He also believed that Dawson will always be her best friend, no matter what. They both are soulmates, and soulmates need not always be romantic. Throughout Dawson’s Creek, this concept of what exactly is a soulmate has always seemed to be a prominent question. He also wanted to break the pattern of the same old ending for the main protagonist and wanted to go out of the box.

Why Does Joey End up with Pacey In Dawson’s Creek?

Now, apart from all the theories given by the creator himself, if we were to look into the story, then there are reasons why Joey should go with Pacey instead of Dawson. One of the major reasons was that Dawson had always put Joey up on a pedestal and wanted that picture-perfect relationship shown in the movies. However, Pacey was the one who saw Joey as she was and wanted to be better for her. He never romanticized her, nor did he want to change their dynamic to fit into a certain dream. He just wanted her and nothing else. Joey had realized this, and of course, she would want to be in a place where she is given the option to be herself.
