[WARNING: THIS EPISODE REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS]

youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qXnetXfVRI

MAIN PLOT:  Drew is Riley’s competition for QB.
I loved Riley’s storylines in Season 9, and nothing much has changed so far.  Riley still hasn’t “come out” to the entire school, and he has no plans on doing so.  So he asks Zane to cool it as far as their interaction in public goes.  But Zane joins the football team, and Riley’s frustrated because he doesn’t want his “cover blown.”

It’s unintentionally blown anyway, when Drew finds out about Riley and Zane, and since he wants to be QB too, he threatens to tell the team Riley’s secret if Riley doesn’t “step aside for QB 1.”  Drew isn’t homophobic:  blackmailing Riley with his sexuality is just what he can use to get what he wants.  I love this plot’s cliffhanger;  Riley suggests to Owen that they do something to Drew, and Riley’s face as the screen cuts to black indicates Riley has no intentions of holding back. 

I love the acting of Argiris Karras and Shannon Kook-Chun.  And I love how they’re both gay, but have completely different perspectives on their sexuality.

SUBPLOT 1:  Alli tries to join the Power Squad.
Alli is quickly falling down the ranks of favorite characters in my eyes, because her level of shallowness (which was cute in Seasons 8 and 9) has reached a level of ridiculous in Season 10.  She tries to join the Power Squad, hoping it’ll make her part of the cool group at school.

But she fails.  And her way of retaliating is by creating her own squad (which she’ll do in Part 2).  If I were Clare, I’d punch Alli in the face.  Alli spends the entire episode whining about how she doesn’t want her high school years spent being an outsider, and wants to have cool friends….and she says all this to Clare.  I’m offended for Clare (even if Clare thought of her self as being boring/lame, don’t complain to your best friend about wishing you had cooler friends).

It’s an ok setup, but I expect things to improve once Alli actually creates her dance team.

SUBPLOT #2:  Jenna starts getting jealous of the attention KC’s getting.
No much happens in the subplot, but there really is no rush.  KC’s getting good grades, and joins the football team.  Suddenly he receives attention from other girls, and Jenna doesn’t like that.

While they’re sitting together, KC’s phone rings…and rings…and rings.  He doesn’t answer it, and Jenna thinks it’s a girl.  Well it is…but it’s not the kind of girl she’s thinking of.

I love how Degrassi is taking advantage of all these extra episodes, and taking time to slowly build up to some of the plots instead of having to jump right into the middle of them.  99 Problems 1 and 2 are the setup for KC’s plot in Better Off Alone….genius!

  1. Loveeddddd the review, dude. :D Very glad that this episode has gotten better grades. Degrassi definitely gets better with age, does it not? And speaking of age….
    Kary, you totally rock for that “Snake flakes” thing. I’ve recently gone on a Degrassi binge and watched the entire first two seasons of Degrassi Junior High on youtube, so that reference to the zit remedy and their [one] song positively thrilled me (and got said song totally stuck in my head….). You rock! :) Just sayin. ;)

  6. I hope for three things after watching Part 1 (and Part 2, which has leaked as well): for Drew to get what he deserves, for this Alli-is-desperate-to-be-with-the-cool-kids plotline to actually build to something big soon, and for this time jump from 2008 to 2010 to be some big misunderstanding.

  8. Wow despite Drew being such a villain, I’m starting to really like his character.I can’t wait to see another side of him when it comes to his step brother/sister in any future episodes. Alli seems like the same Alli that she was last season, I still like her character too because she’s sooo realistic. There are so many girls like her. I love the whole Jenna and KC thing, finally she’s getting a taste of her own medicine! She’s one of my least favorite along with Chantey (or however u spell it). I don’t see Jenna and KC lasting for too much longer, but you never know when it comes to degrassi. I hope it’s not the end of Riley and Zane or “Ziley” lol, Zane is sooo likable, they’ll probably develop his character more. I see him being more of a regular, along with Owen. We’ll probably be seeing more of them in future seasons…

  16. Can anyone tell me what grade Zane is in? I really hope he’ll be in next season too. I love him. He’s currently my favorite character on the show. Anyway let me shut up, because I can go on and on about him. ;)

    I sympathize with Alli on sitting alone at lunch. I remember I use to dread lunch simply because I would have to sit alone. Not fun. However, if she was smart she’d get over her snottiness and sit with Wesley & Connor like Clare suggested. She shouldn’t care if they’re popular or not. Friends are friends.

    I was HAPPY to hear a mention about Darcy! I take it she’s still alive…somewhere in Kenya…probably fighting giant crocodiles and alligators?

    Bianca is a badass. She seems like the real tough girls that I know.

    KC’s acting wasn’t that great. I think he’s the only season 8 alum that hasn’t improved. He’s not horrible, just very awkward.

      2. Alli’s quickly losing her charm, which I think may be setting up a big fall later on. We know that Drew kinda leaves her in the dust later, but not what happens after that. And I think it was hinted that Clare and Alli drift, and this is great set-up for that, what with Clare showing some real maturity and coolness that’s clashing with Alli’s shallowness.

    2. I think Zane’s a senior or a junior. Whatever grade Riley’s in. He’s one of my fave too, I think they’ll develop his character more. He’s actually one of the hottest guys at degrassi now lol I think we’ll definitely be seeing more of him, and probably Owen too.

      People are saying that they don’t like Alli this season but I love her character. There’s always someone like her at school, you can relate to her.

      So far I love all the new characters. The one I still can’t get over is Jenna. Ugh her character is annoying lol. She’s so protective over KC, I know he’s her bf and all but lets not forget that he wasnt hers in the first place…

      Its funny how they mention Darcy too. Her character just basically went “poof” lol its almost the same thing they did with Terry

      KC isnt that good of an actor I noticed. To me his body language is wayy awkward. I think he’ll get better. He’s got some pretty heavy episodes coming up so hopefully he’ll hold his own. I think the original cast’s (Craig, Ashley, Jimmy, Paige, Emma, etc) acting was better in general but the new cast seems to get better and better…

        I LOVED how Zane stood his ground and told Riley that he isn’t quitting. I admire how he stands up for himself and doesn’t let what other people think affect him.

        On top of that he is sweet, caring, funny, and has one hell of a smile. Who wouldn’t want that in a guy? Zane is by far the hottest this guy this season. True, Drew is very cute, but Zane’s awesome personality is what nails it. ;)

  19. Seriously, how old is Chantay? Is she a senior this year? I always thought she was in Emma and Manny’s grade, but when she stuck around last year I figured she was a year younger… And now, new school year, and here she is. Still. Her character doesn’t bug me as much as it seems to some other people (and I love her new hair), but how long can one person stay in high school?

    I liked the Riley plotline — Zane’s reaction to the one guy’s rude comments was really charming and made me like him more than I’m generally inclined to. I actually really liked Alli’s storyline — who wasn’t there, at some point in high school? I also liked the C plot with Jenna and KC. I think not only is it setting up KC’s mom coming around, but also establishing Jenna’s serious insecurity issues that will presumably play a role in her diet pill storyline.

    Overall, I thought this was a really good episode. It feels like the show is getting back to its roots, albeit with new people (except, you know, Chantay), and I’m loving the Boiling Point format.

But I think that it was a great setup for future episodes. I mean, it went into detail about how perfect his life is at the moment, so that once his mom comes, how much will be torn away from him.

        So I’m guessing she won’t be in the final 24 episodes, or a good chunk of them.

        They could write her out by simply saying she went to stay with relatives for a visit or something. It’s not unrealistic, kids in my school would go on vacations at just about ANY time during the school year. Which needless to say, sorta pissed the teachers off.

        Just for wacky purposes they can say she’s gone to Kenya to visit Darcy. lmao.

    2. Interesting…this makes me suspect that something may happen to Sav, after all. I’ve been snooping around several message boards where it was suggested that Sav may end up being killed off the series. Melinda’s absence could conveniently coincide with that: distraught over her brother, Alli takes some time off from school. During her absence, she realizes that there are some things that are more important than the quest for popularity. This could finally give the writers an opportunity to mellow her out have her mature. It’d be interesting to see a more melancholy side to Alli.

      We’ll see what happens!

  32. I loved this episode. Absolutely loved it. I thought the writing was spot on–especially for Zane and Riley and you could truly understand where both sides were coming from. But at the end of the day, it was Riley’s paranoia that got him in trouble. Drew would not have been able to use Riley’s homosexuality against him if Riley had just been out. Then there’s the fact that I think Zane was more hurt than anything that Riley was treating him like the plague. He didn’t necessarily want him to be out, but he could at least acknowledge Zane’s existence.

    I was not a fan of Alli’s story line at all. It was boring and contrived.

    I am actually starting to agree with the people that said Alli only wants to be Clare’s friend when she can’t find “cooler” people to hang out with. I loved how she wore the old Panthers’ uniform though. Memoriessss. haha

    The whole KC/Jenna plot moved along kind of slow for me but I am sure it will pick up more in tonight’s episode. Jenna is just getting to clingy and too much in KC’s business. :/

    I loveeeeed the Riley/Drew part. Riley finally has some competition on the team; it always seemed like he was the star of the team and nobody dared to change that. However, I agree with Owen… Drew was acting verrry cocky. lol

  38. I really enjoy the Rane (Riley/Zane) episode. I’m so happy it isn’t like Marco’s story which was with Dylan (who wasn’t even cute!) who did so much bad stuff to him and they still ended up together. I’m liking the interaction between them too (outside of school). They’re really acting like a couple, which is super cute.

    As for the whole Alli thing. She’s really starting to get old. Sure, that’s how some girls are in high school, but first it was Johnny (gag me) and that didn’t end well and took up most of season 9, hopefully though her story is a little more interesting this time. Unlike the Johnny one which was “we’re together… not anymore… wait all is forgiven… Naked pictures… mistake…” And blah blah blah.

    KC has really been irritating after the whole break-up with Clare thing. Even a little before that he’s been so pessimistic about everything, so rude and so very awkward. Why he’s with Jenna? I’ll never know. Her head looked like it was going to explode under that headband. Her and KC do not make a cute couple.

    1. If you hadn’t noticed, Jenna’s put on some weight, presumably for her role in the later episodes.

  39. I really liked this episode. I like the Zane/Riley story. I hope it doesn;t end but you can’t always have happy endings. Actually a non-happy ending would be refreshing, ala the movie ‘Get Real’. Zane is SOOOOO cute, I can barely stand it. I watched True Blood this week and this was MUCH better!

  41. I hope they’re actually going somewhere with Jenna/KC. Maybe KC has a stalker? lol. I miss Darcy, though. :/

    1. I don’t have a twitter but I think someone should “tweet” Stephen Stohn or someone and ask if Darcy is everrrrr coming back to like make a guest appearance or if they are ever going to like mention what happened to her. It really bothers me that they said she would be gone for a semester and then just *poof* she’s gone forever. lol :)

    2. KC’s mom has been kind of “stalking” him via all the phone calls/texts she’s done. Who knows what she’s had to resort to in order to get in touch with her son 8 months out of the pen.

    Okay so, i just the “shark in the water” Degrassi preview thing again….and i came to thinking about some things….i think Leia is going to be the one to die…only because in the video Fitz walks up and snatches that ball out of her hands….what if thats a metaphor…what if the ball is a metaphor for Leia’s life and since Fitz walks up and takes it..it could mean that hes the one to kill her….wow…another thing maybe the death card on Eli was another metaphor to say that he drives a hearse because hearses deal with death. Just thinking outside the box.

  49. These episodes are pretty good so far. Though I’m not a Jenna/KC fan, I’d like to see how their relationship develops after the whole (SPOILER!) KC’s mom coming back thing. Also, the character Drew, is great! He’s just that person I love to hate, and I wonder what’s gonna happen between him and Alli…and the whole Adam fiasco.
    And everyone is talking about (SPOILER?!) Sav getting arrested and a lockdown happening, possibly someone getting killed as well? Don’t know about this, or if it’s true but can someone please fill me in on anything they know about it? I’m way to impatient to wait for the eps to come out :P

  50. Hmm, whoever said Leah will get killed off, I agree. I think she will try and kill herself, or something will happen during the lockdown. She’s going to the US for University and won’t be back to film, so her character is pretty useless now. There’s something to ponder. And Eli too, he’s pretty mysterious, don’t know what to make of him yet, doubt they’ll kill him off, he’s a brand new character, but possibly the death card was pulled on him cuz he drives a hearse? lol who knows. It’s probbaly cuz of his “dark past”, maybe he killed someone or something, or knows someone who died?

  51. Oh to the above comment Dyl: In one of the trailers for the Degrassi promo (the carnival one you can find on youtube, just search around) from what I can make out from the fast paced scenes was Eli gets beat up (by KC? or Fitz?), someone finds out about Adam (the transgender) and beat him up/push him through a window possibly causing the lockdown; the death card (in carnival trailer) was pulled on Eli possibly hinting the death of his character or hinting to a “past” he had?, Sav most likely gets arrested (sits in back of police car in trailer) and is on the run? He screws up real bad. My post above has some of my other character “theories”, lol. Hope that helped. I too am way to hyped to wait for the episodes, but this season is for sure better than lasts. It’ll suck when they go back to once a week episodes later on.

  52. You shouldn’t say Argiris or Shannon is gay if it hasn’t been confirmed :/
    I remember Argiris saying something about really loving his job and giving it his all, but that it doesn’t necessarily mean he’s gay. ah well, either or, both are great actors :)

    love me some Ziley, lol

    1. I don’t think he was saying that Argris or Shannon are gay. I think he meant it as he loves how Zane and Riley portray two sides of the same coin. He definitely could have worded it better though.
