Episode Notes

It’s difficult to separate Joshua Jackson the actor from Pacey Witter the character, but we managed it in this episode! He may have captured our teen hearts but we’re also interested in what he’s been up to since then—on TV and onstage: Fringe, The Affair, When They See Us, Children of a Lesser God, etc. Joshua brings a preternaturally mature persona that makes our eyes shine and our [REDACTED] tingle.
