[WARNING: THIS EPISODE REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS]

youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtYGQbATF48

MAIN PLOT:  Adam’s secret is revealed at school.
Though we (the fans) have known about Adam for a while, the show officially establishes that Adam is a boy “between the ears,” but was born a girl.  Drew doesn’t seem to care, but Adam’s mom is more concerned with what the rest of the family thinks, as she tries to convince Adam to transform into Gracie for their grandmother’s visit.

This plot is great because it provides multiple scenarios that transgendered face.  The positive one involves Adam dropping tampons in front of Clare.  Owen and Fitz walk by, and a confused Clare plays along with a panicked Adam and says they’re hers.  Later Adam reveals her identity to Clare and Eli, who are totally cool with it.

On the OTHER side…Adam has a crush on Bianca.  While Adam flirts with her, Bianca discovers that Adam has a female body.  Word gets back to Owen and Fitz, who harass Adam in the bathroom.

Jordan Todosey does a fantastic job in this episode as Adam, but this plot wouldn’t be as great without the likes of Owen and Fitz.  These are two guys who are merciless bullies, and actually BEHAVE like they are.  They take no pity on the fact Adam is a biological female, and Owen shows no remorse after literally throwing Adam through a door.

Drew coming to Adam’s defense without hesitation gets him mega respect points from me, even if he did get his ass kicked.  This episode ends on an intense note, with Drew beaten, and Adam’s identity exposed.  This plot so far is living up to the hype.

SUBPLOT 1:  Anya thinks her mom is having an affair.
This plot *ALMOST* got ruined, but thankfully it got on track by the end of the episode.  Anya’s mom is sick, so Anya ends up getting to school late.  She’s paired up with Sav and Holly J (her ex and her ex best friend) for a project, but no focus is placed on Sally J’s secret relationship…they just serve as a reminder to us in the back of our minds that they’re there.  Instead it’s all about Anya, who finds her sick mom missing when she returns home.  Anya finds her mom’s wedding ring, and Leia thinks Anya’s mom is cheating based on some article she read in a teen magazine.

I absolutely hated that part.  And I hate that Anya believed her mom was cheating.  As soon as that idea came out oof Leia’s mouth I yelled “STFU and GTFO!!”  If you’re going to make it “seem” like the parent is cheating, at least create a more believable scenario.

But thankfully the plot improves, as Anya’s parents call her home to tell her some news they received from the doctor…and it isn’t good.  I feel kind of sad everytime I see Anya.  She’s a sweet girl, and I know it’s going to suck have to watch her deal with her mom being far sicker than they thought.  We have to wait until Pt. 2 to find out what’s wrong with Anya’s mom, and besides Leia’s existence this is still a pretty solid plot.

SUBPLOT 2:  Dave tries to impress Ms. Oh.
I know this is supposed to be a “change of pace” plot…but it’s terrible.  It’s not funny, it’s not entertaining, and it makes me shake my head in disappointment at Dave.

Dave has low marks in Media Immersion, so he imploys a plan to get on Ms. Oh’s good side.  The thing is she has no interest in being all “buddy buddy” with Dave like Mr. Perino is.  And as a matter of fact, I happen to find Dave as annoying in this plot as Ms. Oh does.  I just can’t understand why Alli and Dave, two characters who I LOVED last season, have just been epic fails in Season 10.  It’s crazy that nowadays I find Wesley and Connor more interesting than Dave.

I lol’ed at there (andrew&mommy) mix-ups , but atleast they’re supporting her . I missed claire , and she was so nice for covering up & after she & eli found out , they we’re still cool with it . Anya’s storyline teared me up too , poor anya . Daves storyline was good , and would of interested me but my opinion , the first 2 plot lines WAYY overshadowed his plot . as for the Actors , Bravo . 9pm awaits.

    And then Anya and her mom. I feel so bad for her, because of her mom’s cancer. I wonder how Anya will take it..?
    Dave trying to impress Ms.O? Honestly, it didn’t interest me at all. You barely even see them the whole entire episode, so I literally thought that his story wasn’t even a plot. And I’m being serious.

    I can’t wait at all for tomorrow’s episode. I’m really loving Adam and his storyline, and how they went about it.(:

    I’ve already cheated and saw the second part so that I know that this was BY FAR the best story plot of this season so far. I really liked Anya’s plot too. We got to see another, deeper side to her that had nothing to do with Sav or Holly J.

    It was a great episode, with great acting by Jordan and I loved how Drew was so great about Adam too.

    Kary, I will shake my head at you if you don’t give Anya’s plot in the second half an A. Samantha was brilliant, and I cried as much for her as for Adam. The scene with Anya and the volcano was such a beautiful illustration of showing, instead of telling, what Anya was feeling. And when she said “They’re all going to die and they don’t even know it.” Plus with the music it was hands down one of the best scenes I’ve ever seen on Degrassi. Plus, how she doesn’t even care about Savvy J. She has matured enough as a person/character to see that her mom having cancer is infinitely more important than some guy. I hate to say it, but she probably wouldn’t have just ignored what Holly J said in the past.

    And Adam’s plot deserves A+++++++ in the second half. I used to cut myself so the fact that Adam hurts himself as Gracie just ripped me in half. And I didn’t see that coming – it was so nice to be surprised by something in such a hyped plot I thought I knew everything about.

  12. Part 2 of MBIAC is amazing. But, am I the only one who thinks Part 1 was a little better? I’m not going to spoil anything but, I think the intensity of Adam being found out was much … better? To sit through. Part 2 still get’s an A in my opinion but Part 2 is just An A+.

    Holly J & Sav are really AWESOME together. I love their chemistry.

    I have to say, I LOVE Anya’s plot. It just… didn’t need Leia. She seemed useless in this plot to me. Like, I’m sure Anya could have done this plot and carried it quite well WITHOUT Leia. Part 2 of this plot is also A worthy(IMO). Anya (samantha) is a great actress. And I totally commend her. She was great.

        sorry for TRIPLE posting Kary but also,
        I love how Anya doesn’t give a RATS ASS (in part 2) about Holly J and Sav.

        Adam was by far the best and worth waiting for kind of storyline degrassi has had in a LOOONG time. One of my favorites for sure. When Adam was pushed through that door I felt like crying. And when Bianca made that “tranny” remark that got her sent to the principals office i wanted to slap her. My friend and I were talking and we were saying that Clare should have come out of nowhere and slapped her silly.

        Anya and the volcano was one of the BEST scenes I have seen in a longtime. Everything about MBIAC (cept maybe Dave) was memorable, commendable, lovable, and absolutely touching. Just amazing, absolutely amazing. Best episode this season. Best episode in the last COUPLE of seasons.

    First and foremost, Mama Torres needs to gtfo. This especially goes for part 2, but I won’t spoil it. I didn’t care for Anya’s part but that’s probably because I don’t care for Anya, although it was good. Dave’s plotline was just out of place and inconvenient.

    I read that a lot of people cried during this episode. I totally understand that even though I didn’t. Yes I felt this overwhelming amount of emotional pain for Adam but it manifested itself in straight up anger. I felt the writers handled it so well. I felt Adam’s intense emotions to the point where steam was basically coming out of my ears.

    I can not even picture people like Bianca or Fitz. I know plenty of gay people and have interacted with one ftm transgendered person and never have I seen them be attacked like that. I have never known what they had to go through to reach that point of general acceptance. I am just angry at people’s ignorance. It neither if you think they are wrong nor going to hell nor whatever. People can only ultimately change themselves and if they don’t want to change let them be happy with the short amount of time they have on earth. Gay and trangenderness (don’t know the proper term) does not kill. I wish people were more understanding and sympathetic.

    I am androgynous (I am a girl. I don’t like females and I don’t feel like a man inside, I just frequent men’s clothing. Not like s tomboy either. For me, it is more like a male alter ego) and I never got teased about it. I got compliments in fact. This just makes me so happy for those around me. I am grateful for my peer’s understanding.

        The two prime examples of androgyny are Prince and Grace Jones. Since more people know who Prince is, I will use him. Basically, it is dressing more like the opposite sex, but not to the extent of being a drag queen. It also goes further than being a tom boy. Prince wears ruffled blouses, wears heels, and perms his hair. Very feminine attributes, but he still gets more ass than a public toilet.You could be gay and androgynous but it usually refers to people who are straight. Like andrygonous lesbians are called butch instead. Google Prince, Annie Lennox, and Grace Jones.

        I like to dress like Declan. I still identify myself as a female when I do so though. It’s more that a have too big of a fashion sense to only dress as one sex. I like guy;s cuts and I am comfortable enough with my sexuality and who I am to dress up as a dude and still feel like a women.

        Hope I helped you out there :)

    But, oh god. I was sooo pleased. I actually was pretty iffy about Adam at first. I just couldn’t believe that she was a female who felt like a guy. I mostly blamed the acting, but now my opinion is completely reversed. Jordan did a SPOT ON job really showing how UNCOMFORTABLE Adam was when trying to pretend to be Gracie. So perfect. The burning clothes bit was amazing. Adam is so lucky to have such understanding parents.

    Fitz and Owen are terrible. How they can have so much lack of apathy for another human being…disturbing.

    Clare and Eli made me laugh too, I love how their building up their relationship, letting tidbits slip letting the viewers know they’re getting to know each other. And the beginning interactions in part 1 made me laugh, so much.

        Clare likes vampire novels. She writes fan fiction. So maybe this one has SOME merit. But, She’s also sweet, confident, happy and not afraid to call people out.

  29. The concept of Anya’s mom cheating just annoyed me. That whole part of the plot could have been avoided IMO. Anya was way too quick to agree with Leia (actually, Leia was also was too quick to assume that Anya’s mom was even having an affair), and if Anya had really believed it she wouldn’t have been so quick to accept that it was a misunderstanding.

    I appreciated the effort of the writers to make the c-plot one of those comic-relief subplots accompanying a super intense main plot that degrassi used to have. But the Dave plot deserved that F. well, actually, i would have given it maybe a D, but i had the same opinions as kary, im just a more generous grader. I didnt care at all what was happening with Dave, and **spoiler** i didnt even laugh when he was pantless in part 2. **spoiler over** that whole plot, also, was a remake of spinner and jimmy tormenting mrs. kwan in season 2.

    im not even gonna bother giving opinions about Adam. I already said plenty on the previous comment thread, and besides pointing out cute little things that made me happy (clara edwin. giggle. and nosebleeds.), this plot was just too amazing for words. Thank you, Degrassi.

It’s the reason why he got into that fight that made me happy. It was also nice to see their homelife and everything. Other people can say what they want but when you have YOUR FAMILY backing you up? That’s the best thing in the world. Some families aren’t as supportive or aren’t even at all and it just leads to the person hating themselves etcetc…

    oh
    I HATE FITZ, OWEN AND BIANCA!!!
    THEY ARE ON MY BAN LIST :(

    And the Ms.Oh and Dave plot was boring, lol.. but it made me giggle a bit, hehe.

    And we got some EClare tonight, too.. anyone else loved the paper he did? Clara Edwin? So cute.
    He said she’s “ingenue” and she said she was “floozy”

    Ingenue means generally a girl or a young woman who is endearingly innocent and wholesome.

    Typically, the ingenue is beautiful, gentle, sweet, virginal, and often naïve.

    and floozy is basically a skank. lol

    I think Eli likes to have some fantasies when writing, huh? lol
    It would be really cute if he really did think of her as that.

    I liked the whole episode overall.. and am I the only one happy that I get to see no more interaction between Alli and Clare? Clare deserves a better best friend, all she whines about is popularity.. why would you need popularity when you have a good friend like Clare? I don’t get it…

  35. Ok first off I can’t believe Drew couldn’t take down Fitz. Like seriously all that working out he should be able to take him down.

    What is wrong with these Degrassi students? They threw Adam through a door a GLASS door. That’s harsh plus Adam is a girl. I don’t understand how Owen and Fitz could do that to Adam.

  36. This episode hurt me bad…I mean, it was probably (barring Davester) the best degrassi in quite a while…but my god did I feel terrible. I was at least expecting Drew to come tear it up at the end of provide a teensy bit of satisfaction…But nope. Fitz goes 2 for 2.

    Speaking of Fitz! I think he’s an awesome bully/villain character, he’s totally ruthless and the kind of bully Degrassi has been lacking for a while…I love what the show’s done with him. (Owen too, sorta. We’ll see next week.)

    In closing: Adammmmmmmmmmm T______T You poor thing~!

    They where bullying and they damaged school property, and had an altercation.

  47. main plot: wow, i wasn’t really super excited off the rails kind of happy as everyone else was about. in truth i thought no actor on degrassi could really pull it off. but i agree that jordy did an absolutely amazing job as adam and conveying the kind of vulnerability that comes with carrying around a secret of that kind of caliber.i love how claire and eli were so cool with it, the more i see of eli the more i love him. even when he’s a little evil. i wasn’t expecting claire to be so cool with it, i’ve met a lot of fanatically religious people who wouldn’t spare a second thought about how saying it’s wrong and gross. i am religious but my views are different and more excepting which is why i FREAKING LOVE CLARE!!!

    Subplot 1: I was really expecting another “bad parents” storyline. I haven’t been paying much attention to spoilers and did not see this coming. Yeah Anya’s done a few things wrong, but who hasn’t. This episode, and if it turns out her mother does in fact have cancer, is making it easier to sympathize with Anya.

    Subplot 2: Terrible! Terrible! Terrible! I agree with the review that Dave and Ali have fallen very far. Dave is a moron if he thought posting PRIVATE pictures of his teacher in his assignment would get him on her good side. He’s annoying and I am glad that they’ve kept his plots minor and in the background so i can fast-forward through it on my DVR. Connor is the only character remotely interesting out of the three nerds. Wesley is a creepy little worm and dave is nothing but a forgettable fast-tack wannabe.

    Anya has just gotten on my nerves these past few seasons. However, it’s sad that her mom is sick. Ugh! It bugged me how the only time this season(as far as I know) that Leia showed up, it was because she was accusing Anya’s mom of cheating. Way to be a good friend, Leia…

    Dave, Dave, Dave… This plot was so pointless. The character Dave developed in no way in this episode. I spent about 7 minutes of my life watching Dave try and impress a teacher by looking up pictures on her page. That’s about 7 minutes of my life that I will never get back. Even if the plot itself wasn’t terrible… when put up against a great plot such as Adams, it makes the Dave plot look ridiculous. Hopefully Dave’s plot will improve in tonights episode.

    Btw.. its very hard for me to believe that Adam, Drew, and their mom come from the same family. In the first few episodes we saw Drew’s dark side and now he’s coming to his brothers rescue and being all compassionate. Adam always seemed like a laid back cool guy. Their mom showed her true colors in the first few episodes, threatning to go to the school board and now shes all nice and “have a nice day”. lol

  53. First…Drew. After watching You Don’t Know My Name (2) and this, I’ve finally made a decision on Drew- I like him a lot. Although he can come off as a real dick at times, he has moments of genuine honesty which make his character a bit more complete in my eyes. I’m big on developing persona and the idea that action is simply a consequence of mental state. Drew is obviously dealing with more than the average teenager- though I was a little surprised that he would use information on Reily, a person also dealing with something society deems ‘abnormal’ (which is stupid), to get ahead. However, he is fiercly loyal when it comes to his family. Drew’s got a whole dark/ light thing going on that I find I enjoy.

    Now, onto Adam. This storyline was excellent. Jordan did a wonderful job portraying a conflicted transgender but she really shines in Part 2 (which I just watched via ‘leaky goodness’). I won’t comment on it because I don’t want to ruin the fun for everyone else but, rest assured, she is amazing. The fight with Fitz and Owen was a little odd. I was surprised that they would throw Adam out of the bathroom for being a ‘girl’ but fight with him like he is a ‘guy’. Make up your effing mind!

    Clare and Eli were wonderful in this- they provided much needed comic relief to balance out the heavy, emotional material. The whole tampon thing was hilarious- Eli’s, ‘What would he need them for?’ and Clare’s, ‘A nosebleed?’ was really amusing. I also loved their interaction at the beginning of the episode where the writers have them flirting up a storm. Anyone notice how it was all completely feigned? I was squealing like some ridiculous fangirl at the blissful look on his face when she shoved the paper into his hands. Those two are FABULOUS together and I like that the writers continue to develop their relationship with these mini-scenes.

    Dave and Miss O was tired. Honestly, Dave is making me crazy this season. I know he’s trying to find his place but, sometimes, you just have to look around to see where that is. He has loyal friends- there’s nothing better than that. The only part of this subplot I enjoyed was the Godfather reference, though I nearly choked when he referred to it as that ‘really, old movie’. Come on people– it wasn’t the silver screen, for crying out loud!

    Hmm…methinks I’m showing my age.

The old bullies either turned good (Spinner, Jay) or weren’t as brutal as Owen and Fitz in this season. The only time Spinner and Jay + Alex felt like real bullies was with Rick, but then after Time Stands Still we know that disappeared. Well anyways Fitz and Owen are doing a good job as heels if they are making people want to punch them haha. But at least there are real bullies on the show now hopefully they don’t just turn good all of a sudden.

    The transgendered plot was powerful, but I do think they made a mistake in casting to some degree. Not in a million years would I have assumed that Adam was actually male–so when people in the show are surprised that he’s biologically female, it really feels like a HUGE stretch.

    Still, I appreciate this show for not watering a pretty serious thing like they’ve done with other issues. The bullies weren’t just jerks, they were incredibly violent and cruel, which is the reality transgendered teenagers often face. And Adam’s mom support of him being patchy in places (asking him to “bring out” Gracie, accidentally calling him “her”) makes her believable as a mother–if she had been ENTIRELY supportive, it would have been difficult to connect with Adam’s experience.

On their own, they’re typically pretty weak/uneventful. But their inclusion allows us to view subtle characterization that becomes key to understanding subsequent A/B Plots, which stem from C Plots.

  71. Yeah, I really liked this episode. I think it is being handled well and appropriately for Degrassi’s target audience.

    I just wish Drew wouldn;t have got his ass kicked. I dont think he got one punch in but it’s okay because he took his ass whopping like a man!

  74. I don’t know if anyone else has brought this up because I don’t want to read all the comments and get part 2 spoiled, but…

    “Later Adam reveals her identity to Clare and Eli, who are totally cool with it.”

    If I understand your meaning here, “her identity” refers to Adam in this sentence, so it ought to be corrected to say “his identity”. It gets confusing but the polite way to refer to a trans person is with the pronouns of the gender they identify with, not the gender they were born into.

      I’m glad someone brought this up. I’ve been seeing this problem a lot in the comments and in the OP. Half the battle with a newly-transitioning trans person is getting people to use the right name/pronouns. I wish you weren’t getting so many thumbs down for this comment.

      1. Well, I’m thinking it was just an honest typo in the review, since this writer seems to be otherwise very respectful of the whole trans issue. But I wanted to draw attention to it because I think a lot of people who are reading this blog have had limited or zero exposure to transgendered people and don’t understand why the pronoun in that sentence is problematic/potentially offensive.

        I’ve never known anyone in transition (the trans folks I know were already living as their true gender by the time I met them) and I’m sure I would forget and slip up a few times, but the point is that it’s just ignorant and disrespectful to insist upon using a certain name or certain pronouns when someone has asked you not to. I imagine it’d be like getting called a nickname you hate, only 100x worse… Whether or not you “approve” of transgendered people (as if it’s any of your business to begin with!) be polite and respectful.

        @ATS Yeah you hit the nail on the head with the respect issue. I’m glad that Degrassi is “going there” on this issue because it does perpetuate this kind of discussion on this kind of forum, whereas before it would be something completely alien and “weird” for some people.

    I’ve been watching degrassi since season 1 (even though I was in third grade at the time) and I can honestly say this was one of the most powerful episodes. Jordan’s acting was brilliant and extremly believable. by the end of the episode I was in tears. I can’t wait for tonights portion. One of the best episodes of degrassi ever made.

        Is she getting paid to do something. She just seems like the type of girl that would do something for money. Then she has to be sent away or something because she is going to be gone for part of the season. This is just my next guess now. It’ll probably change within the next episodes.

In one of the pictures, he is one of the student bystanders behind the cops with Clare, Sav, and Holly J, meaning that if he WAS in the lockdown he would still be inside or the cops would have him. But he’s standing with everyone else.

Eli and Clare in this episode were awesome too, how they just accepted him. I have to say, I thought clare would have a harder time and stuff but i’m glad she didn’t. I really couldn’t stand her in the previous seasons, but i really like her in this one. Especially w/ Eli. I can’t wait for part 2 tonight :)

    I have to say, the anya plot for me was kinda bad. First the automatically going to the assumption that her moms cheating without a second thought and w/ so little evidence. Seriously? It would take a long, long time to convince me my mother was cheating. I thought that was a bit unbelievable.

    And as for Dave. I fast forwarded through his stuff, it bored me so bad. Bleh.

The claire/adam moment was amazing yet heartbreaking before mbiac adam/claire barely talked to each other. A little disappointed by the pics with eli and claire outside of degrassi but maybe they tricked us placing the pics in different order so maybe that was before the lockdown.

    2. I love how the whole damn school is against Fitz and Owen lmfao. Honestly, I really hope Eli, and especially Riley and Adam get their revenge.
    3. For some reason, I can imagine the whole school just beating each other up at the dance haha. I just want to know what the hell it’s about!!!!!
    4. Eli and Clare, just get together already.

    This last one is a long shot.

    5. Ok, call me crazy, but like. I TRULY BELIEVE that KC is not the father of Jenna’s kid. Like, from the trailer, KC as so angry. Honestly, I don’t think that would be the first reaction if someone found out your girlfriend was pregnant. I would assume that KC would either give her the silent treatment or be completely surprised and try to run away. But, KC seemed a bit TOO ANGRY in that promo for me to believe it.

  122. Okay I slowed down the promo on my tv, I can’t post it on youtube. Sorry all.

    ** THE NUMBER OF THE SCNENES ARE MESSED UP. I ACCIDENTLY MISSED TWO IN THE BEGINNING. SORRY JUST IGNORE THE NUMBERS, THEY ARE IN ORDER! **

    Actual Scene 1) Kids walking out of degrassi on a normal school days

    Actual Scene 2) Claire looking concerned

    Scene 1) Eli walking down the hall looking badass, similar to the look when he did somthing to fitz

    Scene 2) Bianca saying “What your girlfriend doesn’t know won’t hurt her” to _____

    Scene 3) Drew (Maybe Bianca said that to Drew?)

    Scene 4) Eli saying “sorry I lead you on” to claire. Claire says “wow”

    Scene 5) Creepy (over aged) guy says “Guys would pay good money to hookup with you” to Ali replied “what” but not in a pissed of way, more like a curious/thinking about it way. Ali is in dance attire. They appear to be in the halls of degrassi

    Scene 6) Fitz saying hey freak to _____ while walking by a school buss (I’m guessing either Eli or Adam)

    Scene 7) Adam walks up to fitz and fitz says “Now somebody’s going to get hurt” they appear to be in a parking lot

    Scene 8) Zane tries to hold Riley back while he punches Owen while Owen is standing infront of a school bus that says “Riley _____” (Probably Rile is Gay or something along those lines)

    Scene 9) Adam punches Fitz in the stomach, and Fitz falls to the ground

    Scene 10) Riley pushes Owen into a locker

    Scene 11) Adam and Eli running away from someone while someone (probably fitz) shouts “YOUR DEAD!” they are by a school bus

    Scene 12) Snake says “There will be consequences” to a girl with curly or curled hair at what appears to be a dance (Claire or Holly J)

    Scene 13) Drew in his dance attire

    Scene 14) Angry KC saying “Do you even hear yourself!?!?” to Jenna who is crying and then turns away outside of the dot

    Scene 15) A concerned Claire saying “What did you do” to Eli at what appears to be the dance

    Scene 16) KC chasing after Jenna as she walks away. She then turns around

    Scene 17) Police officers outside of Degrassi during the dance

    Scene 18) Police officer walking in on Sav and Jolly J making out she points her flashlight and her gun at them. they are in dance attire

    Scene 19) Snake speaking on the microphone saying “From this moment on, the school is in lockdown” while at the dance

    Scene 20) Ali looking as though she is crying/was crying inside a storage closet while in her dance attire

    Scene 21) Sav and Holly J stop making out and turn around and looked shocked (Most likely at the police officer with the gun) They are in dance attire

    Scene 22) Claire backing away into lockers crying (I think she is backing away from Eli) She is in dance attire

    Wow. That took a REALLY long time. The lockdown is defiantly at the dance. I think it is involved with Eli, that makes me really sad. If it’s not Eli then it’s the creepy guy who Ali was talking too.

    I say whatever scenes where during the dance. If it doesn’t say they were at the dance in my des. then they weren’t

    HOPE YALL ENJOY <3

  130. I am in complete and utter awe at your amazing storyline on Degrassi tonight. You delivered an epic performance and an important story to tell. Hopefully this will put this topic in a new light for teenagers going through Adam’s struggles. Simply inspiring. I felt for Adam so much- I couldn’t possibly understand how out of place he must feel, being born into something he’ll never be. I mean, being forced to live in something you can never relate to, never fully understand. I really hope they will continue this plot to keep reminding kids this IS a situation kids are faced with. I especially thought it was incredible to have the family perspective included- they could have simply stuck to more of Adam’s life at school but instead kept a balance between the two. Plus, I also loved how Adam finally stood up to his parents in saying that they have to let Gracie go. I would have loved to see more of a struggle in school (I understand they did that in Part 1, but I would hope that this won’t be something the writers will just briefly mention every once in a while), but there are plenty of more episodes for that. Great job, great performance, great story.

    I tweeted that to Jordan Todosey, kind of a review of her performance, for anyone that cares. xD

  134. Oh god, the previews for the next episode and the last 2 weeks were both so INTENSE!

    I admit it, I actually squealed when Clare and Eli kissed. Too bad it looks like they’re going to have a super sweet, romantic scene, only for Eli to ruin it in either the next scene or next episode. :/ I wonder WHY he decides to push Clare away (because he clearly is, as shown when he apologizes for leading her on)? Is it because of something in his past, or some current secret he’s just started keeping? I’m extra curious because Adam seems to know about whatever it is. Is it really THAT bad? Or is Eli just afraid to tell Clare because he’s afraid of her judging him and pushing him away?

    At any rate, I’m just PRAYING this isn’t permanent, even though I know as a rule, all Degrassi couples are basically screwed. :/ They clearly are still friends, since they’re together during the lockdown, but I’m hoping they remain something more…Because god knows they just complement each other so well!

    And, speaking of the lockdown, it looks like Eli might have something to do with it after all, since Clare demands to know what he did during it. I’m disappointed that scene with him in the red shirt talking to Clare wasn’t as romantic as we had all hoped. :( I hope they reconcile when all this is over. And Adam had better remain an important friend to BOTH of them the entire time! (i.e. no doing an Alli and just randomly abandoning either Clare or Eli) I’m also hoping he finds a nice girlfriend soon…So they can double date, of course. :P

    I’m also concerned about Zane. I hope he doesn’t get too roughed up by Owen. Here’s hoping Riley grows a backbone and defends him!…As well as finally comes out of the damn closet.

    And Adam looks like he’s going after Owen! I’m proud of him, but I hope he doesn’t get hurt…Owen’s a big creep, but he’s also clearly a strong one. I hope Adam and Eli don’t get TOO in over their heads. (yeah, RIGHT. -_-)

    I have high hopes for Eli x Clare, Eli/Clare/Adam, and Zane x Riley. I hope none of them let me down!! xP

Now Owen on the other hand is a different story.

        Like

  141. I think it’s really interesting to see this transgender role played out. Drew seems to be a very supporting brother but considering his earlier use of blackmail on Riley I’m not sure why he would seem so two sided. I mean he’s protecting his “straight” sis/bro but blackmailing Riley to backing down from the QB position by telling him he will out him in front of the team. That’s very confusing and hopefully just and overlapse by the writers.

    Oh and Bianca… your a b!tch, seriously who do you think you are… Oprah welcomes those “freaks” onto her show to open people’s minds but your archaic view of the female and male persona has obviously over-ridden your heart you WENCH. Bianca get a brain and grow up.

    I really don’t like Anya so my opinion is totally biased but I didn’t feel as much remorse for her as I’m sure people would expect to,when we found out when her mom said she had Hodgkins. Anya’s character seems to have the worst trouble with something I’ve seen Teen’s have an easier time of doing especially on degrassi but her COMMUNICATION skills are pretty bad. I’m on the pill I’m not on the pill I’m pregnant I’m not I’ve been in so man episodes but this is the first one I’ve appeared in in weeks…etc etc.

    Dave, Dave Dave. How I want to smack you, as a future educator I couldn’t help but be so annoyed by him.He is obviously a smart guy but he isn’t applying himself. He reminds me a lot of JT in that sense. He is also so like Alli, he wants to be popular and well liked while letting his school sacrifice except Alli is smart enough to do her and her boyfriends school work.

    AS FOR THE PREVIEW FOR NEXT WEEK:
    I squealed as if I was 14 years old (I’m 19) when I saw that Eli and Clare kiss. Absolutely adorable but then ‘no we cant’ non-sense, going back to the carnival promo I came up with the rationalization that the Tarot cards are indicating something else entirely.
    Lovers yes of course but then death upside down means the closure of one thing to the next. Eli and Clare’s relationship bringing closure from one thing to the next if the lockdown is brought on by something Eli has done the death card can represent Clare and Eli overcoming what happened during the lockdown. Also Lovers before the Death card can represent the longevity of the relationship, as we’ve all said “relationships and degrassi lead to utter failure” maybe this will be the one and only relationship to actually blossom and survive Degrassi.

    What I also like about the episode is that it gave me a deeper understanding of what it truly means to be transgender. It was kind of a gray area for me before. I knew what gay was, I knew what lesbian was, I knew what a sex change was. But I wasn’t quite sure of the true meaning of transgenderism. I feel so much more aware on the topic.
    I totally agree on the grade of the Dave/Ms. Oh plot. Laaaaame. I’m starting to dislike Dave as much as I began to dislike Alli.

      We all know that Jenna is/can be jealous of Clare. Also, I highly doubt it’s KC’s. I mean, They are a couple who love each other, so why would Degrassi give them a baby together, if you catch my drift. And it definitely wouldn’t be as much drama if it were KC’s.

      And if it were Eli’s, then Clare would be upset, and KC would be upset, and besides Alli, or possibly Adam, who else would Clare run to, to talk to? KC.

      I don’t know though. These are all just possibilities.

      1. I kind of got the opposite vibe from the past episodes…I REALLY want Adam to like Clare, so I was looking for any signs – but he seemed completely disinterested in her when he and Eli were talking about Eclare’s never-ending flirting. He didn’t seem even the slightest bit jealous, just nauseated. :P

        And in the promo, HE’S the one who tells Eli to tell Clare – and Eli says, “she doesn’t need to know.” It seems more to me that Adam’s just trying to be a good friend and try to get all the secrets between them out in the open.

        As for why Adam’s just standing there watching them kiss…who the hell knows? Maybe he dared them to make out and is making sure they carry out the dare?? XD <—- joking, that would be the lamest storyline EVER if it happened XD

    But, in these newer episodes, Drew has seen to flip from ‘bully’ to ‘nice guy — The way he comforts Adam and how he seemingly wants a true relationship with Alli.

  167. just realized something did anyone remember the knife that’s thrown at Sav’s head in the promo. If someone brought a concealed weapon to the school the principal (snake) would have to put them into Lockdown to find said person with a concealed weapon. Maybe the dance was a way for Fitz to get back at Eli and Clare upon hearing about the lockdown thinks Eli has had something to do with it but really it’s Fitz. Someone mentioned that Fitz likes smart girls and he’s truthfully jealous of Eli and Clare’s relationship.
    I still have no idea what Eli’s dark past could be but it doesn’t matter in comparison to the lockdown.

  172. in the promo pic where eli and clare and holly j and sav are standing outside the school looking astonished (during the lockdown), it seems to me like they’re all staring at something. IF someone had died (and im not convinced yet that anyone does), i feel like this picture would be when the police were taking the body out of the school. it could also be that someone is taken out in handcuffs, or something like that. i just have a feeling that that picture takes place when the police are removing the cause of the lockdown from the school. for some reason, i feel like that might be alli, because theres gotta be a reason that its eli/clare and holly j/sav. sav’s sister and clare’s (ex?) best friend.

    my current theory (which i already posted yesterday, but whatever) is that adam gets a death threat. i know that goes against what i just theorized above, but this seems like a plausible cause for a lockdown and for police to come without killing off any characters.

    1. Hm. That’s an interesting idea. I think that it could involve Ali, it seems like she gets in some trouble at the dance with owen and maybe she calls the police like help me and while they search the school they find Sav and Holly J kissing, and they found out it’s her brother so they bring them outside. And maybe Claire hears whats happening to Ali so she goes outside to try and help. Or maybe they’re being questioned.

      I think the promos are trying to make it look like it is Eli but I’m 99% sure that it is not. Why would he be standing outside freely while they are/were in lockdown? he’d be against the police car, or in it.

I think it has a lot to do with the character. I mean, they can’t just be like let’s do this because we haven’t done it as much. It has to feel right for the writers. Hell, they may even have intended to do that but the flow of the script and characterization took them another way. Personally I’m hoping for uncharted territory here as Degrassi has NEVER covered the high-risk complications of teenage pregnancy (and what with Jenna’s having taken those diet pills it could be prime time to do just that).

    Darcy comes back from Africa and finds out Peter knocked up Jenna. Darcy is furious about the situation so she calls upon the African tribe she brought back to Canada to bring her revenge. She tells them to attack Peter, but they misunderstand and start shooting poisonous darts at Eli instead. Then Leia steps in and says she read all about “what to do when a tribe of Africans shoots cute boys with poisonous darts” in “sizzle teen magazine”. So she sucks the poison out of Eli, and saves him, but dies in the process. No one cared though except for Anya who said “super bummer” when she found out. Then Claire dropped her feminine hygyiene products and Fitz who was holding a knife tripped over them and stabbed Owen. Owen screamed,” why’d you stick that in me?!” and Adam said,”ha that’s what my ex-girlfriend said”.

  188. This is random, but does anyone remember the scene with Eli and Clare in the Shark in the Water promo?
    He turns over the death card and it caused a lot of people to assume that someone died. But, I looked up the meaning of the card and I got this:

    Many people misinterpret the Death card as something bad. This is one of the most common misconception about the Death card.

    It is true that the Death card can mean death of a person (for example, a relative etc). But more importantly, the death card is an indication of change. The end of something and the start of another.

    Death is just a natural and important, if sad part of an on-going cycle. Winter comes so that there can be a spring, and we can only appreciate what we have when we know that there is loss. The Death card signals such things. This is a time of change. Time for something to end; but time also for something new to begin.

Although I’m inclined to believe that Eli’s girlfriend died in an accident and it wasn’t Eli’s fault, there’s got to be something more to the story as far as character development is concerned. I mean what else about Eli is going to drive his storyline further? Perhaps, the trauma from the accident caused some other kind of problem such as depression or post traumatic stress disorder. How else can we explain his sadistic plan to get back at Fitz? He has a dark side and I think we’ve only just begun to uncover it.

  200. degrassi promos do overdo things most of the time but someone yesterday said stephen stohn or whoever said all falls down is better than the episode where jimmy got shot and when jt got killed so does that mean that this episdode is going to be chaotic. we know it is going to change the culture of Degrassi but is someone really gonna die. in the promo principal simpson says “there will be consequences” to a student of degrassi and quite possibly a student who has not been in trouble before since simpson has a certain tone of disbelief in his voice. Also for some reason the biggest secret is the boiler room situation which includes drew, bianca, alli, and maybe one other character. I do hope that there is major chaos in this episode where multiple ppl cause problems when sav and holly j decides that everything is good and decides to go makeout. There are no signs of ambulances or dogs which means that no one dies or gets hurt to that extent. i could be wrong and no dogs mean this is not drug or gun related. this is strict violent threat

  206. Idea of the boiler room…..

    Alli and Drew go together to the dance, and then at some point they separate for whatever reason. No fight, they just hang out with different people. Owen tries to seduce Alli to get her out of the way. Bianca tells Drew that Owen and Alli went to the Boiler Room, and knowing how Owen treated his brother, Bianca takes Drew to the Boiler Room to take care of the situation. There, Drew is beat up by Fitz or someone and locked down there. And then think about it. What if Drew is stuck there in the boiler room, and Fitz, Owen, and Bianca concoct a plan where they try to get the Boiler Room to blow up or set it on fire? That’s where Adam, Clare, and Eli come in. Adam finds out about his brother, Eli tries to create a plan for everything to blow over and to save his brother, Clare is trying to find out where everyone is. Someone eventually tells Mr. Simpson.

    And that is how I see it. But who knows, this may be completely off.

Degrassi is getting really strict now so it will be interesting to see if they r going to focus more on sotrylines outside of the schoool rather than inside because the kids basically can not do anythin. now bear with me on this list and feel free to help out but this list is derived from certain situations in season 9 and many in seaosnm 10. now in some of these situations, some students who have committed this act were not caught. so i will be taking guesses but like i mentioned before feel free to help. The whole students need to be supervised while entering classrooms is interesting. I feel violence, weapon, and sexual content at school will be the tipping point but others will occur at the dance. (9)-means season

      1. fitz,owen,riley (10)
      2.
      3. holly j and sav (10) maybe alli and owen?
      4. alli(9)-definite
      5.
      6.
      7.bianca (10)?
      8. fitz
      help me out guys

    Yeah, I think somethings going to happen to Zane, and is pisses Riley off. I don’t think he’s gonna die, though. If he was, they would probably be promoting the crap out of it, ya know? Degrassi tends to put an episodes most dramatic moments in the promos, and if there was a death, it would be ALL OVER THAT PROMO.

  213. So the lovers card and death card means that eli’s girlfriend died. Had anyone guessed that? Cause I know people said that could be someone in eli’s past or present that died, but everyone assumed the lovers card ment ELi and Clare. Now thats ingenious of the shark promo creaters, cause i wouldn’t have guessed that.

  224. just going to contribute something i posted on FF:

    when eli’s character was first introduced, i thought eli’s hearse and obsession with death HAD to be a reference to the movie harold and maude. for those of you who haven’t seen the movie, it’s about a boy (well, he’s nineteen, i think) named harold who is…obsessed with death. and drives a hearse. he continually fakes suicide in hopes of his rich socialite mother actually noticing him…as well as to scare away the annoying girls she wants him to date.

    anyway, i am fairly sure that eli’s past girlfriend’s death was the result of a car accident, since he is in morty when he tells clare, and it makes a lot of sense. personally, i like the suicide pact idea better, because that’s even more complex and scary.

    but i am just going to throw some things out there. now, i could not imagine how the harold and maude references would actually come into play or if they would at all. but it’s worth mentioning that harold falls in love with an old lady named maude, who is very eccentric and loves life, and they get married, but she kills herself on her eightieth birthday. so there IS a dead lover in the picture; in this case, he’s actually a widow.

    suicide is heavily related to the movie; harold is fascinated by death, but maude teaches him to love life though she is planning to die all along. so while a car accident makes a lot of sense, i can’t help thinking suicide is going to be involved, because the parallels are kind of scary, though i doubt eli’s girlfriend was eighty years old.

    anyway, i was uncomfortable with the idea of a dead girlfriend in the picture, but like most of you, i am hoping that his main issue is the guilt he feels, not that he was so in love with her that clare could never be quite as good. and i like the idea of clare helping him to deal with the guilt.

    I dont think anything will come of the “put the guns away and talk” scene. Well maybe but i doubt it has ANYTHING ti do with the boiling point. Heres what i think will happen in the following weeks.

    Jenna & KC plot

    Jenna does a fantastic job at her audition to be on a reality tv show similair to american idol. But she gets sick and signs start pointing to pregnancy. She and Alli go buy a pregnancy test and the test proves positive. She tells KC and he cant believe it and he demands she gets an abortion but she refuses. Eventually he will be supportive and help her with the baby.

    Riley & Zane plot

    One way or another it is leaked to the team that Riley and Zane are gay. Owen a big time homophobe torments them horridly. Zane is hurt by the comments while Riley is utterly furious. Zane doesnt want Riley to do anything stupid but he ends up getting 2 guns and plots to kill owen. Zane manages to stop him but realises Riley has serious issues if he would go as far as to kill owen. He gets expelled and goes to therapy.

    Eli and Clare plot

    Eli confesses to Adam that he likes Clare but cant date her because of his guilt over accidentally killing his last gf via carwreck. He was speeding and they got into an accident that caused her to die. Clare snoops around to find out his secret and he gets mad at her but eventually tells her the truth. She tells him its ok and he doesnt have to feel guilty and they kiss and start dating.

    Connor and the pedophile plot

    Connor likes his mmo nerd buddy but he thinks she is too old for them to be together. She accepts this and says they can just be friends. However she really wants Connor and lures him into her care when nobody is around and tries to seduce him. He gets scared and runs away. He tells Snake and Spike and they get the police involved and she ends up getting arrested and gives Connor a creppy look as she gets into the police car.

    Fiona & Pills plot

    Fiona is very worried about seeing Bobby again in court so she starts taking pills to relieve the stress. She ends up getting addicted and shows up at the court messed up from the pills and Bobby ends up winning. She becomes horribly depressed and more addicted tot he pils than ever after this but with help from her therapist mom and holly j she gets off the pills and starts living a normal happy life again. With Porcelina of course.

    Drew & Bianca

    Bianca,still angry at Alli for her bitchiness at the dance club tries to make Drew dissapear from her by stealing him away. He declines over and over until he is invited down to the boiler room and she successfully seduces him. Alli sees this and immediatley attacks Bianca and kicks her ass. She then breaks up with Drew and leaves the boiler room in tears.

    ALL FALLS DOWN PLOTS

    Alli & Owen plot

    Owen tempts a brokenhearted Alli to try prostitution sex for money. He offers her 50 dollars as her first client but she refuses though she is flattered he would be willing to pay to be with her. He still grabs Alli and takes her to a room and takes advantage of her and holds her hostage while Fitz keeps watch. Clare finds out whats happening and tries to save Alli but cant unlock the door and is pushed against a locker by fitz. She manages to escape and tell everyone whats happening.

    I think you on point with the all falls down plot, it totally makes sense, specially in the promo when she like looks terrified and backed away. as for the El and Claire plot I think your going the wrong order, it seems like this : Her & Adam & Eli are chilling or doing something & some way or another they kiss and then he like gives her the cold shoulder (kinda like Paige and Alex) but then claire goes to him when hels working on his car (one of the promo pics and she has the same outfit on aas in the promo itself) and he says ‘sorry for giving you wrong signels) or whatever and she like walks away looking distraught(another promo) & somewhere betwwen this or after , eli tells adam bout his girlfriend, then stuff happen… he tells clair… don’t really no what will happen next. also your drew and ali plot seems unlikely, if that does happen, ali might just give her scrunched up face and walk away all pissy. & the rest of the plots could be right.

That doesn’t mean that a character who doesn’t have a twitter dies but in the Carnival promo when the thing at the end spins and it has all the words (lockdown, lies, secrets, danger, crushes, loss etc.) the word death isn’t there. Maybe they didn’t want to give it away but it seems like it would be there.

When Alli absurdly and accidentally spills out that he paid her forcing the cops to arrest the both of them for the prostitution of a minor. Which is why Sav looks astonished and worried Holly J seems concerned and Clare is outright worried. Eli is un-moved, it’s Owen he could care less he hates Owen.

    or.

    Fiona is taken away in an ambulance as she has od’d and Holly J is concerned Sav is worried Clare and Eli found her so they are outside to see her off and talk to the cops.

    REPLY to tell me if you AGREE or DISAGREE!

    1. i dont think alli will get arrested because she already has a record so that means she’d have to go to juvie

      1. Wait, actually. Call me crazy, but Alli going to juvy actually makes sense!

        Because she does have a warning. And think about it. Alli isn’t supposed to be in the second half of the season.

    2. i disagree at the fact that eli looks un moved. If you look at his face he obviously looks upset and you can clearly see emotion in his face.
