[WARNING: THIS EPISODE REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS]

youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4oM59X75Bw

MAIN PLOT:  KC’s mom returns, and wants him to move in with her.
KC’s mom shows up at his football game unannounced to give him some news: she’s filed papers to regain custody of him.

Not if KC has anything to say about it.

Does anyone else get the feeling that KC is a little paranoid? I mean I get that his mom was a horrendous parent, but as adamant as he is about not letting his mom back into his life (no matter how much she may or may not have changed), him behaving so uneasy makes me feel uneasy.  KC’s always on edge, but the fact that he is even more than usual here is what I like about this plot.  Get ready to crash and burn.

SUBPLOT 1:  Clare has trouble at home, and becomes close with Eli.
Clare is paired up with Eli in class, and it’s a wonderful match from the start.  Aislinn and Munro have great onscreen chemistry together.  Now while things are starting off slow, but exciting for Clare in the romance department, things aren’t so great at home.  Her parents are constantly fighting, which is part of the reason her writing assignments haven’t been up to par lately.  That and she’s afraid to truly express herself.

The cure? More Eli.

SUBPLOT 2:  Alli plots to make Drew her boyfriend.
Alli likes Drew.  Dave likes Alli.  Alli asks Dave for guy advice.  Dave says throw a party, where he flirts with Alli a lot (because he now thinks she’s interested).  But Alli only has eyes for Drew, who has his eyes closed while making out with Alli at the end of this plot.

It’s a good setup for Part 2, when we find out if Alli possibly breaks Dave’s heart while Drew possibly breaks hers.

  3. I noticed a parallel in Eclare start and Klare start. (Eli challenges Clare to scream loudly in public, K.C. challenged Clare to show a talent to the school.) The difference being motive. K.C.’s challenge was confrontational, between Clare’s vocalized thoughts K.C. was another cute idiot, and wanting to get her back for that. He felt bad afterwards she was the butt of all jokes.

    Eli, on the other hand, is a simple constructive thought that she should share herself more, and risk herself a little. Also it was a setting without the instant backlash that K.C.’s challenge had, better planning on Eli’s part. Eli seems to actually be helping Clare to grow and stand out, while K.C. and Clare just kinda… sat there.

    The writers are really taking advantage to all the extra time this season has. Kudos to them.

    I love his personality.
    And, the KC and his mom thing, I think, will be a fantastic storyline. I see Bianca coming into the picture pretty fast. Did anyone else see the preview for tomorrow’s episode?
    Anyways, the Drew and Alli subplot was good too, but I have to say, I’m kinda sad that he’s not that much into her. Btw, he looks so much like Taylor Lautner. They’ve got to have a shirtless scene. xD Just kidding!..Maybe..;P
    Anyways, as I know I’ve said 110 times before, I’m excited for the upcoming Eclare. And more Degrassi.
    So far, I’ve agreed with you on all of your reviews.

    4. No, she wasn’t. In their first scene, Clare is seen with a ring on her left ring finger, while Eli is seen with two rings, one on his right ring finger and one on his right thumb. Throughout the episode, that never changes. And the ring Clare is wearing is, in fact, the same as the one Spinner gave Darcy in High Fidelity Pt. 1.

      1. Well, it is the same style of ring. It could just be prop reuse, as she wore it as her abstinence ring last season. Also Clare is wearing it incorrectly (she has it on her left hand facing inward, which means married). Making it hard to use its symbolism in plot.

  11. You know I might have misjudged Jenna. Maybe we as the audience don’t know her well enough. I mean, she actually seemed like a voice of a reason and a concerned girlfriend. Maybe it’s because every time I had seen Jenna previously, I was seriously annoyed by her or her overly sunny attitude or her spreading rumors or “9 o’clock movies, KC!”. In this episode, I wasn’t. That’s a major improvement in my book.

    3. To be honest, I’ve been really impressed with Jenna in every scene this season that has taken place outside of school. She seemed so happy to be with KC at his group home and then with his mom it was pretty impossible to dislike her then. Although I’m definitely not a fan, I’m really glad she’s getting her own storyline(s) this season and we’re seeing different sides to her. It’s just bad writing when a character is absolutely hated by all viewers, and not in a good “love to hate” kinda way.

    4. Contrary to most, I’ve never really hated Jenna. KC was into her since the S9 Premiere, when he couldn’t take his eyes off her as she performed. Although she did flirt with him and her motives were obvious, he didn’t really let her know he wasn’t interested, because he was. After KC and Clare got together, there was nothing exciting about their relationship. Technically, he broke up with Clare, and I think it’s because he knew he liked Jenna and he had fun with her, something he wasn’t getting much of with Clare. That’s why I never really blamed Jenna for “stealing” KC.

      I think this is why so many people hate her. But I’ve seen her being caring and understanding plenty of times. She was there for Alli when she thought she had an std, and even tried to help her get back at Johnny. Also, she was nothing but caring when it came to KC and Carson, and again, now that his mother is back in his life. Aside from the “stealing” and the tiny rumor (I say tiny because it barely got around, and it wasn’t something devastating that hurt Clare, it was just annoying), she really hasn’t done anything that warrants all the hate she gets, unless I’m forgetting something.

  13. The partnership between Eli and Clare is the most entertaining and intriguing plot of the show for me. I am so excited for the next episode! Honestly, I think the main reason I am eager for this season of Degrassi is because of Clare and Eli.

    I’m still thinking about that “Death” card during the Degrassi Carnival music video. I want Eli to be on the show for a long time, even though we’ve been just introduced to his character.

    1. I don’t think we have to worry about Eli going anywhere. I highly doubt that the death card signifies his death. I think it has to do with his plan to get back at Fitz for bullying him and Adam. I think Clare has that worried look in the Carnival Promo because (with Eli being so mysterious) his plan may be a bit dark.

      1. guys, it’s a reference to sylvia plath and her husband. they were both famous poets. and sylvia plath did kill herself. i think her husband may have treated her badly as well. basically, it was a bad example for the teacher to use….she really had her head in the clouds. clare pointed that out because she was being snarky about working with eli. i probably would have said something similar if i were told that and did not happen to be very enthused about the assignment (though i love sylvia plath).

  19. Okay, so this was the first episode of the season that totally had my attention. I was fastforwarding the commerials and everything; I couldn’t wait to see what was gonna happen next.

    First off, I love how the Eli/Clare relationship is moving along. I also thought it was cute how Clare and KC’s relationship all started with “You care too much about what people think” and her and Eli’s relationship is starting the same way:)

    Ali and Drew… ahh… I can tell that’s going to be a mess. I feel so bad for Dave, though:( She got his hopes all up and he basically ran the party and she still wanted Drew. lol

    KC is reminding me more and more eachday of Sean and I love it. IMO it was a great cliffhanger the way they ended it with Bianca saying, “I think I could have a use for that bottle” or whatever she said. haha

    Tomarrow night could not come faster. I really hope the episodes are as good or even better than this episode because this one set the bar pretty high:D

    And KC, I still love him. I wonder just what it is that makes him so reluctant to live with his mom. She really did seem like a good person. I just don’t want him to be hanging out with Bianca, ugh.

    And I’m not even gonna comment on Alli and Drew because I just don’t really care, to be perfectly honest with you.

  24. Usually, I tend to not get too enthused about couples on Degrassi, but god damn, I freaking love Eli and Clare! They are so worth the wait to see on screen. So far, I love the way he’s challenging her to grow as a person. I hope her sensibility can rub off on him, as well, so that he can grow as well. But we’ve known Clare as a main character for two seasons, while we’ve only known him for a couple of episodes, so I’m not expecting that to happen just yet.

    Also of note:

    – I appreciate the clever parallel of KC having parent issues and Clare having parent issues. I think it’s safe to say that the writers aren’t over the KC and Clare relationship just yet, but want to wait a bit and develop the characters more before they try that again. So this is a nice way of subtly still having them together in an episode without them actually dealing with each other.

    – I really don’t know what to make of Jenna at the moment. How is it that she can be so annoying one moment and then be so sensible the next? In the words of Manny, I feel so conflicty. I want to hate Jenna so much, but she’s had a few shining moments so far this season that I can’t just bring myself to it yet.

    – I know this is the page for part 1, but one of my favorite lines of Degrassi dialogue in recent seasons is at the beginning of part 2. Since it hasn’t aired, I won’t say what it is. But still wanted to mention it. Because I was seriously cracking up for a couple of minutes when I heard it.

    1. i actually think clare has already grown a lot as a person on her own. you’ve seen part 2, so you know eli kind of realizes that at the end. i think actually what she does is prove to him that she can think for herself. certainly his input is useful to her, but she does her own thing, and he’s impressed by that, more impressed than he would have been if she’d done *exactly* what he suggested.

      personally, i’d be more interested in seeing clare challenge eli, so i hope that happens in a future episode. i love eli but would love him more if he weren’t as perfect as he seems or as confident as he expects clare to be. he acts very cool and collected, but i’d love for clare to really get to him and break down some of his walls and bring him out of *his* comfort zone.

      anyway, i love eli. i love his facial expressions and the way he’s kind of fidgety and always seems to be doing something in his scenes, like eating that apple AND eating it in an amusing way. munro chambers’ acting is really, really refreshing.

      and i was so relieved that he and clare didn’t make out in that scene where they got close, but instead they both got kind of awkward about it. i love their relationship but would definitely like to see it take time and am glad they’re not actually dating yet.

      1. Good point about Clare already having grown, but she’s still kinda stuck in her own way of thinking. When Eli told her to scream, it really threw her off. So even though she’ll do what she wants to do, he’s still making her reconsider her own thinking process.

        And I REALLY hope she can be shown having an influence on him soon, too. It would really make this couple shine.

      2. You made a ton of great points there, from Clare proving she’s not exactly a helpless, needy character to Munro’s really refreshing, as you put it, acting techniques.
        We know from promos that Eli is a victim of bullying later on, so I’m really hoping that he turns to Clare and reveals a more vulnerable side during all of that, because I do think you’re right in saying that the calm-cool-collected act is a front and he’s challenging Clare ’cause he can’t challenge himself.
        Also, it was an interesting parellel to see how Clare and Eli didn’t start macking the moment they could while Alli was all too eager to do so with Drew. I love that both plots happened in the same episode, it does a lot to illustrate the differences among both the couples and the best friends.

    2. “I do think you’re right in saying that the calm-cool-collected act is a front and he’s challenging Clare ’cause he can’t challenge himself.”

      indeed, i think that explains it a lot better than i did in my own post. he has brilliant plans for other people’s lives, but is he in control of his own? also, he wouldn’t do that scream because it wasn’t his “style.” now, i don’t think people who don’t scream in public are wusses who care too much what others think, because that would be silly of me. in fact, it was a pretty silly thing to ask clare to do in the first place, and i think he said it to mess with her and didn’t expect her to really do it. but i do think the writers of that scene may have been trying to show something with having him talk clare into scream but being afraid to do it himself.

      in fact, in part 2, i was almost expecting mrs. dawes to ask eli to read something aloud and for him to refuse…even though he was so adamant about clare reading to everyone.

      anyway, i agree so much that the bullying plot should allow him to show a more vulnerable side, especially if he gets in way too deep with his pranks against fitz and gets beat up as the result of that.

      while he doesn’t care what bullies think, and while he’s not willing to change for them, maybe he’s not as happy with himself as he pretends to be. because no matter how confident you are about being different, there are still consequences for it in high school, and even if you like yourself the way you are, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t suck to be treated badly because of it.

      i’ll just be disappointed if his confidence doesn’t get him into some trouble and if he remains totally on top of things. but i think it’s the case that he will get himself into lots of trouble with his pranks, hence why clare is so concerned about the risks. i like the idea of him being a little reckless and maybe not caring about himself enough to avoid making enemies who could end up being dangerous. i kind of imagine him planning to stop the bullying of others like adam, not just himself.

      clare is perfect for being involved with eli’s bullying plot because she can understand just how awful it is to be bullied, but she would be able to say that whatever eli is doing might not be the right solution.

  26. ok, one of my new favorite degrassi lines:
    “You could be just like Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes!”
    “Sylvia Plath killed herself.”

    for those of you who dont know, Sylvia Plath was a fantastic poet. never heard of Ted Hughes, but i assume he was a poet too. i felt the need to explain this, because someone a while back called them “Ted and Susan”, which made me sad.

    and i think the whole screaming thing was showing the differences between eli and kc. when kc made clare show a talent, he was trying to show her that she DOES care what people think. eli was trying to get her to care LESS. “everyone cares what other people think.” vs. “you shouldnt care so much what other people think.” (yes, those are both exact quotes)

    and let me just say, kc may have been A BIT paranoid, but i would have done the exact same thing in that position. my dad’s a major jerkface (trying to use nice language). he’s not like drug junkie or alcoholic bad, but he’s kinda verbally abusive. if he tried to take custody of me, i’d be acting exactly like kc. (but not acting out like in the next ep. just looking for any way not to live there)

    and alli and drew. no comment. it annoyed me, but i thought the plot in the next ep was exponentially worse, so im not even gonna say anything.

  32. i dont know why everyone thinks eli is just like ellie (or why teennick claims he was named after her)! they dont seem anything alike to me. yeah, they’re both semi-goth, but thats where the resemblance stops. and sure, i guess ellie did kind of act like eli with the dry humor and the sarcasm in the first few eps she was in, but by season 3, she was nothing like he is. they just give off totally different vibes to me.

  37. I have no idea why Stephen Stohn claimed that these episodes shouldn’t be considered two-parters, because if you ask me they absolutely are. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it is making it so that I enjoy the episodes a lot more when I watch both parts together, so much that I kinda want to reserve judgement till I see part two, although part one was fantastic. I’m excited to have a marathon of the entire Boiling Point because the flow of this season is incredible.

    I think it’s unfortunate that KC’s resentment and abandonment towards his mother comes up for the first time here, because it’d be a lot easier to understand/sympathize if we knew how affected he was before seeing his mother as a changed woman. Although I do see where he’s coming from, it’s definitely a lot harder. Also, either his mom was addicted to a number of drugs or the writers made some flubs. First he claimed she was a tweeker (meth), then talked about crack in jail (crack cocaine), and there might have been one more?

    I love Eli and Clare so far, they’ve got some great potential, although I’m not seeing their chemistry as much as most people seem to. On the other hand, Alli and Drew had some intense chemistry during Never Have I/their makeout session, and I don’t really want to see her with Dave, I don’t see them being an interesting couple at all (the JT-Manny parellels are undeniable: It was great to see him get the girl, but how exciting is it, and does she really want a guy like him?). I just feel bad for Alli ’cause she’s getting so much hate, when really her storyline isn’t that bad, she’s just being featured too much at the same time. In the past eight episodes, she’s been a C or B-plot in six of the episodes? Her story would be much nicer in smaller doses.

    Lastly, I love how the characters are introduced this season! Bianca’s clip at the end got me really excited to see more of her, Eli delievered, and I’m most impressed by how Drew keeps getting more and more interconnected; he’s now acquaintences with Sav, rivals with Riley, and a love interest for Alli.

      1. you’re also right about these being 2-parters. there hasnt been a single plot that has concluded in one episode. but i dont think they’re so much 2-parters as that they just flow from one to the next. the storylines are just ongoing. but if we must call them something, then they are definitely 2-parters. they each have at least one plot that concludes after 2 eps. actually, i think we’re working in sets of 2. plots take either 2 or 4 eps. yeah, thats it.

      2. Yep, and meanwhile it’s feeling more and more awkward not to hear anything (a la Sav’s scene w/Simpson) from Holly J or Fiona after being featured so prominently in the first weeks episodes, and Connor and Leia have gotten the shaft yet again so far. Even an Anya subplot would be nice, maybe dealing with the realization that her and Sav are officially over.
        Now that I’ve thought about it, I think that’s my ONLY complaint for the season so far.

    2. I agree completely. They are doing a very good job at the intros.

    3. I don’t think he meant so much that ‘none of them will be two parters’ but that he meant ‘none them will neatly end with the second part.’ We’re used to a two parter being 1 main plot over two episodes with two other plots in the background. Right now we have one overarcing plot for the episodes and two other plots that weave into and out of nearby A plots. Clare’s surgery to Jenna’s jealousy to KC’s parent issues.

      If you look so far every plot subtly weaves in and out from one character to the next. Holly J’s plot in week 1 ‘resolved’ (or at least hit a save point) in Breakaway 2, with the election resolving in Breakaway 1.

      We also don’t know if the C level plots will all be two parters like they have been so far. A few ep summaries suggest they might not be.

With his and Alli’s plot, he reminds me of one of those anime dudes that is really feared because of a glare or some other thing, but the main girl ALWAYS seeks this guy out, asking him for advice, being flirty and whatnot. This is exactly what is happening with Dave. I’m pulling for the guy because it would be great that he ends up with his desired, but I know that will not happen because if it did, it would remind me too much of an anime’s conclusion (specifically Toradora!) but more importantly, the fans would not approve of such a pairing.

Jenna was the voice of reason for the whole episode. I can’t believe I’m saying, but she not as bad as I thought she was.

  49. A) I think KC is very justified in his paranoia. hello!! his mother locked him in a closet so she could get high?!? who wouldn’t try to escape the person that has traumatized them, i don’t care if she is “turning her life around”. there’s a big difference between mother and mom, Lisa is a mother- DNA is the only tangible thing between them. She’s not a mom [i.e. someone to feel safe with].

    B) Love Clare/Eli!!! No bad comments about this storyline, it got the A it deserved. Someone above mentioned the complete 180 between KC vs. Eli and I completely agree. Hopefully we’ll get to see more of them in the next part!

    C) Does anyone else see the slight similarity of Dave/Alli/Drew triangle to the former [and very brief] JT/Manny/Craig? I really used to like Alli but the more we see of her the more shallow she becomes which- in degrassi history- can only lead to a major fall out. this plot is generally a coin toss for me, we’ll have to see how it goes.

    1. Arianna, I think you have a good grasp of what’s going on. KC has the right to be paranoid. Sure, I’m annoyed with him, but you can’t expect him to welcome his mom back into his life with open arms. She lost his trust and she has to get it back. KC’s being pretty irrational with stealing the liquor and hunting for drugs, but it’s expected. He’s the child of an addict, so naturally his life experience is going to be a little different. I think we should give him some credit.

      I absolutely love Clare and Eli together. Clare is so Molly Ringwald from Pretty in Pink and Eli’s encouragement may be just the thing to get her out of her shell a bit more. I am a little weary about the tarot card reading though… death? I hope not. I really don’t want to see anyone dying during Boiling Point.

      The JT/Manny/Craig thing is pretty similar to Dave/Alli/Drew…. except (and I’m going to throw a wrench into things) I don’t think Drew is straight. Someone mentioned it yesterday in a comment and I thought I was the only one who thought so. His whole ladies man persona could be a facade.

  62. I’ll be quite honest, at first I wasn’t such a big fan of Eli. I started liking Clare a lot more after her and KC broke up and I wasn’t too sure about Eli. All doubts about him were thrown out the window the moment I saw both of them in action. It was such beautiful chemistry and they did act really well together. Unfortunately, Degrassi relationships never last, but I’m curious to see where theirs go.

    Alli is REALLY pissing me off. She’s continuously proving that she a shallow wanna-be who doesn’t have a deeper motive for what she’s doing. She’s more of a static character to me. Maybe if she had attention issues, it’d be tolerable, but all she ever wants to do is get popular and it’s really starting to get annoying.

    I hate KC. I really do. I understand his mom did a lot of bad stuff to him as a child, but regardless he should at LEAST try to consider good in her. She is his mother. KC has already proven to be such a pessimistic person–which quite frankly, is such a bother–and I understand not answering her calls, but once she started MAKING the effort, the least he could do is give her a shot. Jenna was very tolerable this episode and I enjoyed her trying to convince KC that maybe she has changed for the better.

    Lastly, if Drew is gay, then that’d make a way better plot line for him then just ladies man, or the cliché “find the right girl” that has already been used with Declan. Maybe he even tries getting with Zane, which keeps Zane in more episodes, which I’m hoping EVERYONE wants.

    ALSO can everyone stop saying Eli is going to suicide because someone asked Snake(lol i cant remember his real name) if Eli was like Claude(who was the character in the original degrassi series that suicided, he was more in a Rick like situation) and Snake said “NO!”. So I’m sure that if anyone is going to suicide it isn’t going to be Eli or even Adam at that. They said they want to keep Adam around for his whole high school life dealing with his transgender issues.

Then again , everyones gonna reach there boiling point .

    Anways , This show was very amusing . The way almost every ‘pt 1’ of a 2parter always leaves in a cliff hanger makes me so mad my laptop split in half . I would L.O.V.E to see a love triangle between claire , eli , and k.c . maybe even adding Bianca and Jenna . During the boob job argument between claire and jenna claire metioned I think that she was still a threat in their relationship . Your always kept guessing when it comes to Degrassi .

They can’t just push KC/Clare for OTP in S8 just to have them get screwed over in S9. It’s not fair for people who actually enjoyed them as a couple. and “Eclair” shippers don’t get overemotional about this, I am just voicing my opinion. Eli is creepy, tbh. I don’t find him attractive and I certainly don’t think they should stick Clare/Eli together… and trying to make Jenna out as “the good girlfriend” BULLSHIT. You cannot just accept her for that, seriously?! She’s annoying and stupid and there is a reason KC is so overprotective about his past/life – it’s NONE of her business, girlfriend or not. Also, they are re-creating the characters so much and Eli is supposed to bring some dark aspect to the show – but he is just seeming like the cliche outcast quoting – “Why do you care so much about what other people think?” GOD, at least KC had similar morals with a more interesting persona.
    KC/Clare FTW.

    1. The whole KC/Claire thing was a filler. in season 8 there wasw only 4 freshmen. with alli already dating up they wouldn’t make another freshmen do that. And connor isn’t really a dateable guy, so basically that only left KC. They needed to do something with claire’s character. She already had that perfect persona about her so what other drama could they give her besides boy related ones? which was exactly why that whole 8th season was based just on her liking KC. KC and Jenna actually go together. they both are into sports, both had lived without a parent figure, both adventures and fun, unlike claire.

      2. The whole point of season 8 was to set up for season 9… they purposely put clare and kc together and made you have feelings for them just so when they broke up you’d feel sad and devestated, which means they did there job right if you are feeling like that. And i don’t know if Jenna and KC will last, i doubt it knowing how relationshps go on Degrassi, but Jenna and KC are just better for eachother.How were KC and Jenna “Shoved down are throats”? Opposites attract SOMETIMES but Clare and KC are just too opposite anyways…

    2. I gave you a thumbs up. As hip hop enthusiasts would say, you went IN on your comment. You make strong points in your argument but for future comments that you make, the whole “everyone will rate down my comment but idc” is guaranteed for thumbs down. Leave that out and your continuation of strong comments will have E-Clare shippers et al thumbing you up for a well-said argument. While you didn’t insult them, they will always feel kinda ‘called out’ if you do that.

      Anyways, I can see why there are alot of E-Clare people. What I got out of your argument is that they could turn out to be an outcast couple; Clare will still do her things, but your argument I believe is supported with the evidence of E-Clare chilling at the Ravine with Adam/Chelsea. You spot on with KC, Jenna had no right to take his phone. She probably snitched on him to Principal Simpson. I would’ve dumped KC if I were Jenna because of being so nosy. The way she behaved in Heart Like Mine part 2 is the way she should act all the time.

  82. Thought it was hilarious that KC got hammered and blacked out. he definately moved up as a character in my book. Hopefully he goes after that bad girl Bianca and gets rid of Ms. Piggie

  83. Ok I loved this episode. EClare for the win! Lol and although I HATED Jenna last year I… (kills me to say this) feel bad for the way KC’s been treating her. She’s actually been ok this year unlike the “fake compliments cheery girl boyfriend stealer” she was last year. I still want her and KC to break up though not because of the whole stealing Clare thing (not anymore lol), but because they don’t seem to be that good together anymore. As long as they break up and she stays away from Eli (since she has a thing for Clare’s love interests) she may be a likesble character for me! Oh and I also thought part 1 of this episode had the best music of the season!
