Dawson's Creek Characters, Ranked

I'm watching for the first time. Just started Season 5, so keep that in mind.
  1. 7.
    Dawson Leery
    HE IS THE WORST. Asshole, self-obsessed, possessive, and definitely the least realistic of the main cast.
  2. 6.
    Andie McPhee
    She's been through hell, and I have a lot of respect for how she discusses her mental health issues. But a) she cheated on Pacey, which is a thing I will never understand, and b) the peppiness is just a bit too much.
  3. 5.
    Joey Potter
    She could have avoided so many of her issues in her life by being honest and forthright. But hey, she works hard and accomplishes her goals, so there's that.
  4. 4.
    Jen Lindley
    My affection for Jen goes through major peaks and valleys. She can get a little too emo for me. But I adore her friendship with Jack.
  5. 3.
    Jack McPhee
    At the start of Season 5, his hair is beyond atrocious. But he's still precious. I love the journey he's gone on. From his heart-wrenching coming out scene to his confidence in his identit as a gay man. And watching him, Jen, and Grams create a family is just glorious.
  6. 2.
    Pacey Witter
    He can be just as whiny as the rest of them, but it doesn't bother me as much. Mostly because he is totally adorable. I want him to be my boyfriend. HE BOUGHT JOEY A WALL.
  7. 1.
    Grams is the GOAT. 🐐
