Joey relies on the support of Pacey and A.J. to rally the students in a major school protest against the school superintendent, Dr. Fielding, after he forces Principal Green to resign for expelling Matt Caulfield who destroyed Joey's mural after the guy's wealthy and powerful parents threaten the school board with a lawsuit. Meanwhile, Dawson and Gail both go back to their respective places in back and in front of the camera to produce a piece about the ongoing school protest which ruffles more than a few feathers of the school board hierarchy as well as Gail's old rival; a reporter named Sherry Eisle who "stole" Gail's old job back in Philadelphia and is now covering the story in her own self-serving and bias way.
