MAIN PLOT: Fiona’s plot to expose Bobby doesn’t goes as planned.
The Fiona drama slowly ramps down because Fiona finally decides she’s gonna let the world see what Bobby’s done (by posting pictures of herself with a black eye on the internet). The problem is no one believes her, not even Declan. The only person who doesn’t think Fiona is being overdramatic is Holly J.
Upon learning that Holly J actually showed concern, Fiona randomly hops on a plane and shows up at Degrassi. Fiona doesn’t want the cops or lawyers involved; she just wants the situation to go away. So the next thing we know we’re left wondering whether or not Fiona’s mom is going to drag her back to Manhattan. Besides Fiona’s impromptu trip to Toronto (which seemed really weird), this plot maintains its solid pace.
SUBPLOT 1: Sav and Holly J battle for Student Body President.
Word gets out about Sav and Anya’s “pregnancy,” and it actually helps Sav’s campaign instead of hurting it like Holly J anticipated. Overcome with guilt thought, Anya confesses that the pregnancy is a lie, and instead of being angry Sav is relieved.
Sav wants to tell the truth, but Anya convinces him to keep up the pregnancy lie since it’s giving him an advantage. The best part is Holly J can’t do anything about it: if she rats Sav out, Anya will make sure the world knows the fake pregnancy was Holly J’s idea. Sav wins the election and Anya’s left with two victories: she’s got her man back, and she stuck it to Holly J.
SUBPLOT 2: Jenna starts a rumor about Clare.
Jenna overhears Clare and Alli talking about an upcoming surgery Clare is having, and Jenna automatically assumes it’s a boob job.
She blabs to KC and the rest of their grade 10 crew (Connor, Dave and Wesley). I know they’re stuck in classes together, but it still bugs me that Clare doesn’t just rip Jenna’s head off everytime she sees her. This part of the plot (which will continue in Breakaway Pt 2) feels lame…it doesn’t feel like a storyline where a rumor’s been started about someone. Watch the Season 1 episode Rumors and Reputations…now THAT is a rumor episode.
