TV’s 8 Worst Plot Twists
6. Dawson’s Creek
During the season finale of Dawson’s Creek, the writers didn’t have to kill off Jen Lindley. Her sudden illness was a terrible plot twist and was only done really to put Joey in a position where she had to finally choose between Dawson and Pacey – but Joey could have done that without Jen being killed off by a mysterious heart ailment. This was literally the worst plot twist to come out of Dawson’s Creek and it was unnecessary.
It wasn’t that bad when Joey developed a crush on Rachel; however, that changed when she began reciprocating those feelings. Their relationship really was one of the worst plot twists on the show. The writers realized the error of their ways and quickly put an end to the relationship almost as quickly as it began, but still…the relationship left a bad taste in fans’ mouths.
