[WARNING: THIS EPISODE REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS]

youtube link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTZE24q9Pgo

MAIN PLOT:  Jenna tells KC she’s pregnant.
So Jenna’s pregnant, but there’s no way she’s letting that get in the way of her competing in Next Teen Star.  Of course there’s another obstacle in her way:  she has to tell KC.

KC is in a wonderful mood and believes he and Jenna have a good thing…so it sucks that her being pregnant and all has to ruin that…and football.  But of course all she has to do is get an abortion (just pull up to the clinic’s drive-thru, and zip-bam-boom you’re on your way) so Jenna and KC can get back to their his wonderful life.

Of course I’m being thoroughly sarcastic in that last paragraph.  Calling KC a jackass in this episode is an understatement.  Not only does he have the nerve to get pissed when Jenna doesn’t want to go through with the abortion, but he also says (there is no implying, he SAYS it) that he doesn’t want any part of the pregnancy. “I don’t need this,” are his last words.

Wow.

It’s terrible, but damn does it make for interesting television.  Once again, Jenna’s acting has improved, and it actually gets better as the episode moves along.  I liked how Jenna was confused about what to do the entire time.  And the writers made sure the doctor laid ALL of Jenna’s options out there to avoid, you know, some unnecessary AWH-esque controversy.

Even though I can’t stand KC, the way he reacts to this was really well written.  This is a great ending to this portion of Jenna’s pregnancy.  It’ll be interesting to see what route they decide to take with this baby.

SUBPLOT 1:  Connor won’t let anyone stop him from seeing LoveQueen16.
ALL of Connor’s computer privileges have been taken away by Snake, and Connor is still mad at Wesley and Dave for ratting him out.  He still plans to meet up with LoveQueen16…they’re gonna go back to her place, and then she’s gonna sex him up until he forgets he even has Asperger’s.

Buuut, they don’t even make it out of Degrassi’s parking lot;  LoveQueen picks up Connor, and she starts rubbing on his leg.  He (just like the rest of us) is completely creeped out by this, and jumps out of the car.  To be honest, I was disappointed by the ending…I think they copped out by having the “confrontation” happen so soon.  This would’ve received an A+ grade without question had they actually made it to LoveQueen’s place and she started making sexual advances then.

However, the plot still good upon us learning Connor had no interest in LoveQueen romantically.  He literally saw her not only as a friend, but also as a comforting part of his routine, which he felt was being disrupted by Dave, Wesley and Snake.  So all along it was about his Asperger’s.  I never thought I’d say this (for like the 4th time), but it’s another good plot from Connor!

SUBPLOT 2:  Anya and Riley try to figure out if Dr. Chris is gay or straight.
Anya and Riley both have a crush on Dr. Chris, so they go on a quest to figure out if he’s gay or straight.  Well the eventual result (he’s straight) leads Anya to ask Riley what he likes in a guy.  And of course all of Rileys answers describe…Zane.

I thought Riley and Anya were cute in Part 1.  They still are, but sadly I don’t have much interest in what they’re doing.  This change of pace plot is moving at such a slow pace, and it’s so contradictory to the pace of the other two plots that I was bored.  This is one of those episodes where the episode as a whole would’ve benefited from having just two storylines, because the Jenna and Connor plots are strong enough on their own.

  3. i think that KC will spill to his mom or maybe jenna will ask his mom for advice since hers isn’t around. then she’ll make KC see that he was being an idiot and make him take responsibility – which he should have realized he was doing when they had sex in the first place. i predict a reluctantly supportive KC in the future.

    but i LOVE jenna’s brother! the brother/sister relationships on this show are always so cute and close. sav and alli, declan and fiona, paige and dylan. such supportive siblings!

  6. The surprising pregnancy wasn’t as surprising as I thought it would be. The baby is claimed to be KC’s. What I’m thinking about his, everyone starts hating on KC since he wants nothing to deal with Jenna’s pregnancy . . . leading to him going to the “dark side” with Bianca . . . hence the beginning credits shows them all buddy buddy.

    1. To me, I find KC’s actions in this episode completely contrary to where his character has been going all season. Doing better in school, making the football team, manning up and giving his mom a second chance. He’s taking these great leaps of responsibility and growing up. Then, in 22 minutes, he transforms into a complete ***-hole. “My life is held together by tape.” Really? It sounds like life is totally going your way. I kind of understand the anger and frustration from KC having been in a high-school pregnancy scare, but I didn’t leave someone out in the cold. That’s why I think KC’s a prime candidate for Degrassi Douche of The Year at this point.

      We’ll see how he progresses, but I’m not seeing how he turns to the dark side…is gonna knock-up Bianca next and argue for her to have an abortion, too, because she won’t make the finals of “So, You Think You Can Dance?” KC has proven to be the kind of guy who can learn from his mistakes.

  9. Pretty much completely agree on all counts. I really wanted to like the anya/riley part a lot more than I did, unfortunately. Fortunately, Jessica Tyler’s acting did feel improved in this part and may I just say that I am so glad that this ended up a pregnancy like so many predicted, as it marks the first pregnancy (I think…) to be hinted at many episodes beforehand. It’s that sort of thing that I’m really loving about this season of Degrassi. Continuity has never really been their strong point and I’m so happy that it looks like that’s changing. :) Another great review, Kary. I swear, I look forward to your video reviews almost as much as the episodes themselves. Thanks for all the work you must put into them (and the rest of this site). Truly awesome.

Hm I agree with your grades for Jennas and connors plot, and I also agree that while nothing really happened in Anya/Riley plot, I thought it was a pretty good setup for Rileys storyline in tomorrows episode. It showed that in the end finding someone outside of degrassi is harding than it seems and therefore he tries to win back Zane, with Anyas help of course.

While I too am pissed at KC, this is a very common response for teen dads so I’m glad they finally did this on the show. It is just one of those moments where Degrassi makes the situation as real as possible. Great review

  22. It would be a wicked scene if Mr. Simpson catches Connor with LoveQueen16 and decides to break her neck (remember the very first episode when Mr. Simpson grab Emma’s online creep and threaten to break his neck). But hey, a girl can dream, can she?

    Also I was right, KC’s reaction isn’t like the one that Craig or JT had. This episode further justifies Clare’s statement that KC blames everyone but himself, he is just as guilty as Jenna, but puts the blame on Jenna. I’m surprised that Jenna’s older brother didn’t put a gun on him (I think the episode mentions that he goes hunting).

  23. I agree that they should have had Connor end up at LoveQueen’s house, but in the end I liked the plot alot more than other’s involving The Three Tenners (I also gained a new found appreciation for Connor)

    Jessica impressed the hell out of me with on this episode. Her acting has been…less than great up til now, but the confrontation scene between Jenna & KC made their plot an automatic A. I’m curious to how this is going to play out since we’ve already had an abortion & a baby given up (also a teen mom with Mia).

    Anya & Riley’s friendship is absolutely adorable! But the gay/straight doctor plot was a bit too random & ultimately wasted their limited screen time [which I agree could have been devoted to fleshing out the Connor/LoveQueen storyline]

  25. kc just better stay away from clare and leave her with eli (reflecting on other people’s comments from this thread and part 1) but i’m picturing the manny/ashley/craig storyline in my head…of course it’s not a repeat but there’s some similar things. and craig ended up back with ashley after that. better not happened.

    i feel like clare will be left out of it but it’s like she deserves to know! and i wish she’d pull an ashley and like out jenna in the caf and be disgusted by it. probably won’t happen…but just saying.

    i’ve said before i feel like kc/clare were a waste so i’m sure nothing’ll come up again from it but ugh seriously, why did they even bother? such a waste.

      But, then I think, I doubt the writer’s would do that. I can see him going back to Jenna in the next few episodes, saying how sorry he is and that he was being a jerk. But who knows.

So yeah, I knew Jenna was pregnant since the day the first Shark In The Water promo aired. I remember sneaking into my sister’s former room(it’s mine now; she moved to Georgia with one of my other sisters) as my TV privileges had just been revoked at the time, and I definitely knew Jenna was pregnant. In fact, it was my first comment about it when Kary put up the post. So how sweet would it be if JENNA had a heart attack during birth. I mean, could you imagine? Ahhhhhh. Ahhhhhhhh!!! AAAAAAAHHHHH!!! I know it’s not gonna happen, but it would be rather nice. :)

  28. These two episodes weren’t bad. While I understand that Alli meant well, her constant nagging really annoyed me.

    I agree that the LoveQueen/Connor “confrontation” was way too quick. We had 4 episodes’ worth of build-up for a 15 second leg rub? I was hoping that she’d at least try to restrain him. She’s like 3 times his size! What a great story for Connor, though. The fact that Connor was so naive and believe that the relationship was entirely innocent, really upped the threat and creepiness of the whole thing. I feel as though this storyline isn’t entirely over, though. I’m thinking that she could be the reason for a lockdown, too.

    Anyone notice KC’s abrupt moodswing? At the beginning of the episode, he’s saying how life is wonderful, how great his mom is doing. Then when Jenna tells him that she’s carrying the baby to term, he says he can’t have this, because he’s life’s being “held together by tape”? But I thought that everything was great? I’m starting to suspect that KC’s got BPD or something. His changes in mood have always been very sudden.

To me, they are nothing alike, and they both handle their similar situations different, and I don’t just mean the pregnancy. And I know that I may get a lot of thumbs down for this, but the repeat thing is getting on my nerves.

This episode was really great, and I agree it would of been a strong ep with only 2 plots, but I really think they were setting up Riley for today.

  32. K.C reminds me of Craig – initially I liked him but now I feel he will completely become an unlikeable character. Someone referred to K.C as a “runner.” That should be his new nickname. He’s self centered and selfish. I have no doubt that he will find a new girlfriend. He might feel remorse when the baby is born and try to be there a little. But when the pressure is on K.C shows his true colors, and it’s not pretty. This gives me flashbacks on when he dumped clare. This plot stay true to his character for sure.

    Jenna – My heart won’t allow me to feel sorry for her. The way K.C and Jenna started out was very shady. Well, she got what she wanted. But I do love the relationship she has with her brother. And even though K.C pretty much left her for dead, she has a great support system in her brother. And I auctually do think she will be a damn good mother.

    A part of me wanted to see K.C jealous of Eli but now I don’t think that’s going to happen. It seems like Clare and K.C are going to just ignore each other, well, that is what ex’s do, right?

    It’s sad that Clare and Ali are no longer close. Honestly, there friendships is one of the main reasons I began to watch the show. But I understand why Ali would shift towards Jenna. I think Ali thinks Clare is more judge mental than she actually is. Jenna and Ali can open up about HPV scares, pregnacy,…etc and they know they won’t judge eachother. And I guess they feel like Clare would look down on them. Which I don’t think she would, just seeing they way she respects Adam and stuff, i feel like Clare is much more open minded then people give her credit for.

    Anyways, Anya and Riley look cute on screen together. Why did I wish he would start likeing her. HA! I’m sorry but they were just too cute.

    I love Connor’s innocence. He is lucky to have the greatest friends ever. I love the three tenners. I love seeing snake playing video games with them. Very cute to see kids being kids, which sadly we don’t see a lot in highschool.

    1. I agree with Alli and Clare’s relationship, especially the part about her being judgmental. Remember how Clare was? Yeah, she wasn’t exactly the friend you’d run to to tell that you’ve snuck out to go meet up with a guy at 1am. So, maybe Alli, even though her and Clare are best friends, still feels like Clare might judge her, whereas Jenna is more like Alli. Jenna would encourage you to meet up with him again, and Clare would most likely say, … You’re kidding, right? But I’m glad that Jenna has at least one friend. I’m so tired of everyone going she stole KC blah blah, yeah, she did, but it’s not like KC didn’t want to be stolen.

      I do hope that Alli and Clare get to hang out more often, because their friendship is also one of the reasons I watch. The Three Tenners/Tennors? are cute and I like their friendship as well. I wish Clare and Alli would hang out with them more (and Eli and Adam), but that’s mostly because I miss when everyone in grade 9 were friends. Guess it couldn’t stay that way forever (and we wouldn’t have Wesley).

I hate how people think it’s her fault. If anything, it was K.C.’s / Coach Carson’s/ Clare. K.C. because he would flirt back and do whatever, Carson for telling K.C. to dump Clare, Clare’s for not being more fun and relateable to K.C. All Jenna do was Flirt with the guy. Practicaly every girl does that regaurdless if the guy has a girlfriend or not. To say that she “stole” him, isn’t practical. If she like hooked up with him or something like that i could understand.

  33. This episode surprised me. Based on Jessica’s previous performances, I just assumed this episode would be a total let-down. Boy, was I wrong. Jessica Tyler delivers such a strong performance in this episode, along with fantastic writing by the writers.

    I loved this subplot. I legit couldn’t sleep last night because I thought LoveQueen16 would come from under my bed D: Connor’s only storyline prior to this episode was in “Causing a Commotion” which was badly mediocre. Ever since, I felt Connor was useless. But after this plot I have realized that maybe he can handle big/interesting storylines.

    I love the Anya/Riley friendship, but this plot wasn’t really necessary. Not saying it was bad, though. I guess its a setup for “Still Fighting It”.

    So excited for these last 6 episodes. Hopefully they’ll be an Every Degrassi Ever Marathon leading up to the mid-season premiere? I need the original episodes back in my life hahah .

  34. I know I’m gonna get dozens of thumbs down for this, but with Alli taking a break from the show, I envision one of two things happening, now that Jenna’s single:

    1. With Alli gone, “Drewlli” will need to take a break, as well. Jenna and Drew, both lonely, bond at football games/practices, and begin seeing each other.

    2. Jenna, seeking companionship and a little levity in her life, manages to reconnect with Dave. The two grow close, and eventually become an item.

    1. Dave may act a fool, but he likely hasn’t forgotten what went down before. Since he’s a nice guy and he wasn’t humiliated or anything before, will link with Jenna if that does indeed happen.

  35. I really enjoy this episode. For these reasons.

    After KC left Clare I have not like him at all so by him doing this is another excuse not to like him but since Jenna arrived at Degrassi is the first time I like her character.

    Connor’s plot (Creepy= cool)

    Anya & Riley: I have done that with my friends. LOL It reminded me so much of my friends when we go out to the mall or some place.

    Great ep!

    Actually, I don’t think the C plot was quite as pointless as you thought it was. It was kinda slow, but i think the writers wanted to remind us of Riley and Anya’s relationship before they both plot to win over Zane in the next episode. I thought it was cute :)

    I was amazed by how much i enjoyed Jenna’s plot! Plus, her brother’s super hot, WOW.

  40. This episode was bitter sweet for me…

    One on hand I was super happy that KC FINALLY left Jenna.

    On the other hand, though, I was disappointed in KC. I don’t think he should have left her like that especially during the time that she really needs him.

    I think Jenna should have gone to the doctor sooner so they would have had more options but I don’t think Jenna was going to get an abortion anyway so I doubt it would have made a difference.

    I hope KC doesn’t come crawling back saying he’s sorry and wants to be apart of the kids life and all that for two reasons:

    1. I don’t like KC and Jenna together
    2. If he comes back and Jenna takes him back, I would just write off those two characters off my list. That would mean that after KC left her to fend for herself during one of the most difficult times in her life, she would just take him back like nothings wrong and I would not like that at all. :/

    I really enjoyed the Connor plot. I thought it was very interesting especially how Connor got all mad at his friends and family for trying to protect him just because he has asbergers(sorry, I don’t know how to spell) and it would interupt his, like Kary said, daily routine.

    I was proud of Connor (lol) when he got out of the car as soon as she started touching his leg. It shows that he really does have common sense and gives me hope that he won’t do anything stupid or destructive. haha Does anybody else realize how much Connor has changed since he first came to Degrassi?

    It also makes me sad with the lack of communication between KC, Connor, Alli, and Clare. When they first came to Degrassi, they were all best friends. Clare especially with Connor and now we haven’t even seen them interact… at all. Same with Alli. I can understand KC because of the break up but it makes sad how none of them even interact anymore… but I guess thats part of Degrassi high school. :/

    I couldn’t agree with you more on the Anya/Riley plot. During the first part of this episode, I thought they were cute and I was getting really interested in what would happen but during the second part all we found out was that Anya had a crush on the doctor (which I already knew because of the way she was looking at him in part 1) and that Riley liked Zane(which we already knew, again, because of part 1). It wasn’t that great of a subplot this time.

  41. KC really showed his true “douche-assness” in this episode. I never really like the character and he made me see why. He is just a whiny person and I can’t stand that. When things get hard he leaves, when things don’t go his way he blames everyone else or always thinks that someone is trying to do him wrong. With this episode it also showed that he was selfish! To only think about his life and not think about Jenna’s life like it was not going to be affected also was just wrong!! And of course leaving your 5 month pregnant girlfriend because you don’t want to take care of your responsibility…….KC has officially moved up on my Crap List! Luckily for him Owen, Fitz and Bianca take the top 3!

    9. Adam seems like the type who would be easy to forgive. So maybe in Purple Pills Fitz “apologizes” in a convincing manner, and Adam forgives him. But Fitz probably did it just so that he can embarrass Adam in the long run, so when he finds that out he’s gonna kick some Fitz ass.

      I don’t think it’s that bad that Eli wanted to hang out with Clare instead of Adam. Bros before hoes, but sometimes the hoe just gotta go first, ya kno bra?

      It’s not like Adam and Eli aren’t friends anymore. From the 2 week promo, it’s clear that when Adam goes after Fitz, Eli is helping him.

      Omfg. I am soo excited. I’m anxious to see everyone’s plots.
      Fiona-I knew that the drinking in DTM was just the beginning of an addiction to it.
      Riley-I’m happy that he at first was going to bring it public, but now I’m just disappointed that he’s having second thoughts.
      Eli-I don’t really think that it’s that bad that he chose Clare over Adam. I mean, they are gonna be dating, so Adam shouldn’t get too mad.
      Adam-Really? I can’t believe he’s gonna try to be friends with Fitz. But, I can see Fitz saying sorry, and Adam being naive and forgiving him, just to have Fitz screw him over. But, I am glad that we have Fitz, because he is one of the best bullies, since Jay. Honestly, he may even be better. Not that I don’t like Jay, because he has always been one of my favorites, I just mean, he’s more extreme than Jay. On bully level. Lol.
      I honestly have nothing to say about Holly J. and Sav anymore. I know I may get some thumbs down for this, but they just don’t interest me anymore. Anya knows now, and Holly J. is feeling fine without Declan, even though I’m sure he will try to contact her again, and she will probably end up going back to him, and Sav doesn’t seem to feel bad either. So..
      Drew, Drew, Drew. Shame on you! =P Haha, but no, he just got back with Alli, after trying really hard to get her, and then he’s just gonna throw that way for Bianca. I have to say, I am excited for that plot. And I think that they don’t go to the dance together, because of that one scene where Owen is paying Alli….Hmmm…
      And finally, Fitz, Eli, and Clare. I saw it coming from the first episode, and when we got the character descriptions. Fitz likes smart girls, and he also likes to get back at people, like Eli. And Clare is not only smart, but very pretty at that. And then Fitz and Eli have been neck to neck, so..
      All in all, I’m super excited for these episodes, but very sad that it will be the last of TBP

    Here are the lyrics for “Purple Pills”

    I take a couple uppers
    I down a couple downers
    But nothing compares
    To these blue and yellow purple pills
    I been to mushroom mountain
    Once or twice but who’s countin’
    But nothing compares
    To these blue and yellow purple pills

    [Eminem]
    Cool, calm, just like my mom
    With a couple of Valium inside her palm
    It’s Mr. Mischief with a trick up his sleeve
    To roll up on you like Christopher Reeves
    I can’t describe the vibe I get
    When I drive by 6 people
    And 5 I hit
    Ah shit
    I started a mosh pit
    Squashed a bitch
    And stomped the foster kids
    These shrooms make me hallucinate
    Then I sweat till I start losing weight
    Till I see dumb shit start happenin’
    Dumber than Vanilla Ice trying to rap again
    So bounce, bounce, c’mon bounce
    I said c’mon bounce
    Everybody in the house with a half an ounce
    Not weed I meant coke dumb ass sit down
    We don’t bullshit, better ask around
    D12 throws the bombest bash in town
    Bizarre, your mom is passing out
    Get her ass on the couch ‘fore she crashes out

    [Kon Artist & Kuniva]
    Fuck that, someone help Denaun
    He’s upstairs naked with a weapon drawn
    Hey Von
    You see me stepping on these leprechauns?
    It gotta be acid cause the X is gone
    Ya I took them all dog with some parmesian
    And I think my arm is gone
    It’s probably numb
    Young, dumb, and full of cumm
    And I think he ’bout to swallow his tongue
    Scary ass it was a false alarm
    You think I’m ’bout to die when I just got on
    So stop acting stupid
    You so high
    That you might wake up with a guy
    On some new shit
    I think I did too much
    This substance equals cups
    Red pills, blue pills, and green
    Big pills (That’s ill)
    Mescaline

    [Chorus]

    [Hook]
    Dirty Dozen
    80 of us
    Shady brothers
    Ladies love us
    That’s why our baby mothers
    Love us but they hate each other
    They probably wanna take each other out
    And date each other
    Some-, something, something, something
    Something, something, something, something

    [Proof]
    Pop pills
    Pills I pop
    Pop two pills
    On stilts I walk
    Snorted two lines that were filled with chalk
    Thought it was Incredible I killed the Hulk
    I wanna roll away
    Like a rollerblade
    Until my eyes roll back in my skull for days
    And when I’m old and gray
    Look for coke to smoke
    I overdose
    When I pack up my nose with coke
    *cough cough cough*
    Am I supposed to choke
    Had an accident when the Trojan broke
    Ah, poor baby
    Born by whore lady
    And I’m gonna strangle a – (You’re crazy!)

    I pop four E’s at one time
    And I don’t need water when I’m swallowing mine
    (You got any shroom?)
    Does Bizarre smoke crack?
    We can’t get job
    Because our arms show tracks
    Why the hell you niggas think I rap?
    I do it just to get your company hijacked
    If you like smack
    Then I might too
    (Swift, chill)
    I just wanna get high like you
    And I don’t give a damn if they white or blue
    Speed, shrooms, down the Valiums
    Even smoke weed outta vacuums

    I really loved this second half of the episode. Jenna’s acting has really improved in this episode. This is by far her best performance, since the ‘dieting’ episode was one of her let-downs. I loved that she was confused about what to do. I also loved that she was passionate and caring, seeing as how she want to go through with the late abortion for her safety, and how she wanted to keep the baby, seeing as how it was ‘their fate.’

    I’ve never hated K.C.; I just see his motives as a very huge character development. This episode referenced me to the line that Clare had said in season 9: “He always wants to blame others besides himself.” Since then, he’s blamed Clare for their failed relationship and Jenna for being pregnant, but he’s forgetting one main thing: He was involved in both, and messed up. I think that his inner conflict will boil when he switches over to the ‘dark side.’ His little get-together with Bianca and Fitz couldn’t have only been the first few seconds in the previous episode (I forgot the title. FACEPALM!) As the great Dumbledore once said, I predict that K.C. will have to decide on doing ‘what’s right and what’s easy.’

    Connor’s plot, to me, felt rushed but was also good because I feel that we’ll see LoveQueen16 again when we’re playing Realm of Doom in the Media Immersion’s lab. Although Emma’s story in the series premiere was similar and only lasted two episodes, it was good enough to want more. I feel that Connor’s storyline will stretch, showing more Wesley and the tolerable side of Dave. But, it’s kind of funny that these certain stories dealing with online pedophiles deal with a teenage character connected to Snake (Emma is his stepdaughter; Connor is his godson.) Not saying I would want to see a story like this again, but I would’ve wanted another character to get involved, although I can’t see any as naive as Connor and Emma in their situations. I loved how the storyline didn’t revolve around their relationship, but on Connor’s Asperger’s. Great thumbs up!

    I really liked Subplot 2 in these two episodes. Although Part 2’s Subplot 2 was long and a little boring, it really built up into Riley’s next story and showed us that Anya and Riley are still great friends. I love the chemistry that the two have. If Riley wasn’t gay, I would imagine him with Anya. I just think that they could make each other happy. Although I do love the Sanya stories and would miss them :(. I enjoy these two characters so much!

    Now, tonight, bring on Eclare! I love Rane or Ziley (Whatever it’s called), but I am so happy for Clare and Eli’s subplot. I feel that they’ve been on vacation for a while during these last few episodes, and have felt deprived. But now that they’re coming back, I’m going to be happy. Somehow, I compare Eclare to Semma. Good Girl/Bad Boy type, I don’t know. I just wanna see more Clare and dive into Eli’s story. I hope in the second half of the season, we’ll finally get an episode from Eli’s point of view (His home, family, friends, inner conflict)

    These last six episodes look promising for a mid-season finale! Can’t wait!

  46. I could not disagree more with the ratings. Jenna, no matter what she does, simply infuriates me. I didnt see a scared innocent young girl who had abig decision to make on screen. I saw a STUPID SELFISH girl who once prided herself on being a “boyfriend stealer” (methods used are now rather obvious). For five freaking months she put a childs life in jeapordy because she was in denial about the consequences of her decisions?Not only that but Jessica’s acting was horrendous. Yes she has improved but she is still well below the mark of decent. I agree that KC was wrong on every level, and that Sam’s acting was very good- among the few redeeming things in this plot.

    I though Connors plot deserved a better grade simply for the scene after he gets out of the car. He’s holding all his stuff in an empty school parking lot and it just really epitomizes what i think the character was feeling at that moment.

    I loved the sprikles of Anya and Riley. It doesnt come off as a forced friendship as many others on the show have. The more i see of Anya on her own without Holly J or Sav, the more I like her. I still think the guy who plays Riley is a bad actor, very awkward in delivering serious lines or pretending to be joking around. I think this part is just as necessary as others hsve been regarding long term plots.

I think a guy dumping his pregnant girlfriend just because she is going through with THEIR pregnancy is way worse than dating your friend’s ex boyfriend right after they broke up. Really, I think that statement you made was a bit unreasonable and silly. What happened between Clare/KC/Jenna was everyday high school drama that we all go through, what is going on with Jenna now is a real world problem that she will struggle with for the rest of her life, and that goes for KC too if he ever comes around.

  48. Okay, I understand why everybody is saying KC is a douche. He is. But not because of the Jenna thing. I kind of understand where he is coming from. He literally just found out that Jenna was pregnant. Then the next day he finds out that not only is she pregnant but shes already half way through the pregnancy. She did take away some options by being a friggin moron (who, might i add, ALSO was running from a problem).
    But he really did JUST find out about it. He still can come back the next day or so and say he over reacted.
    Also, maybe he’s scared that he might end up just like his parents did for having a child at such a young age. And maybe, he might be an awful parent like they were.

    One more thought… I was thinking that Zane (shannon) is only billed as a guest star… maybe he gets killed? or gay bashed really bad?
    I don’t know. Just thoughts.

      OMG! Don’t give the writers any uneccesary ideas. But, you’re right – why isn’t Shannon a regular?

      I really like his character, and I’m probably not the only one who wants Ziley to materialize. Please keep Zane around!

    1. Owen, Fitz and Zane are casted as recurring characters but they’ve been in a lot of episodes, even main plots and are still in plots in the last 6 episodes. Leia is only in one episodes the entire season and we have already seen that episode. So Leia is done.

  53. OMG for those people out there calling Jenna stupid for not realizing that she was pregnant for 5 months, you guys really don’t know anything about pregnancies do you? All women don’t just “know” they’re pregnant the second it happens. As a matter of fact, go watch TLC’s “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant” those women did “worse” than Jenna, because most of them didn’t realize they were pregnant until the day of conception.

    Sometimes the symptoms aren’t obvious until it’s too late. Actually, for Jenna it makes perfect sense that she wouldn’t notice her missed period because she thought she was fat, which makes girls miss their periods a lot. That actually happened to me once, I thought I was pregnant because I started feeling dizzy, and I missed 2 periods in a row. But my doctor told me it was likely because I’m a bit over weight, and the dizziness was because of me anti-depressants.

    So you see guys, it’s perfectly understandable that Jenna didn’t know she was pregnant, mostly because it was the last thing on her mind at the time, so she shrugged it off until Alli stepped in and convinced her to take the test, so Kudos to you Ali.

    1. It’s not like she had no idea. She was obviously talking about it with Alli for a while before she even took the test. I think she was refusing to take the test because deep down she *knew* but didn’t want the confirmation.
      Jennas dumb.
      And the day of “conception” happens when the egg is fertilized. Not birth.

    4. A) Jenna isn’t fat.
      B) She missed her period for the entire time. 5 months. of never checking.
      C) She had various other symptoms
      D) She admitted herself she showed all those warnign signs, but didn’t want to check because she was “scared” and “hoped it would go away”, which hey, she’s a selfish immature teenager. It’s understandable.

      Am I the only one that’s more annoyed with the fact that she isnt considering the baby AT ALL. Like

      A baby isn’t going to get in HER way of being a star, despite how much stress it will put on the baby and her.

      KC is going to make HER go through it alone, she shows no indication of the fact that KC ditched her AND her daughter. She has to go through this without a significant other–Which is terrible. But she’s hardly alone.
      her daughter doesnt get a father.

      She WAS considering abortion, but there were health risks FOR HER.

      It’s ust weird that she’s shown NO INTEREST in the actual child, but rather how this child is going to effect HER. and thats it. The doctor volunteered the info that the baby was fine, and she was basicallylike “ok.” Why? because she was scared because HER life is now upside down.

      Bah. We’ll see.

      I just don’t like her as a character.

      Also, how long have Jenna and KC been together? I thought they got together in like, June? May? Right before prom right?

  56. As usual, part two blew me away. in comparison to part one, it was far better. Although i am sad to see KC be, for lack of a better termm, an ass, i am glad to see that the degrassi writers are exploring this option. in past pregnacncies we always see a supportive father…this is my opinion, seems more realistic, and is a change of pace. i wonder what is going to happen, and i can’t wait to see how it plays out.

    I enjoyed the Conor and Lovequeen16 storyline. I think that it puts more emphasis on how dangerous, all aspects of the internet can be. The actor who plays conor does so well! i have to give him a two thumbs up!

    Anya and Riley’s story didn’t seem to have a point, but in the end it is made very clear that it is the opening for whatever is about to happen between Zane and Riley.

    i am enjoying how each two part episode has a conclusive ending, but at the same time has a steady chain linking all the episodes together.

    This may be TOO MUCH (yes, even for Degrassi!), but I think it could be an interesting storyline to watch unfold.

  69. Hi Kary!
    I’ll be honest, this is the first time I’ve watched one of your video reviews. I’ve been reading Degrassi Blog for a while now, pretty much the last two seasons, but I’ve only been reading the reviews and visiting the links you’ve posted. I’m very glad I did watch the video review, because it was great!

    It was so funny and entertaining, and I completley agree with your episode grades. I loved that you had actual clips of the episodes too, that just made it more enjoyable for me!

    I’m so impressed how quickly you make these videos and reviews, and they’re very good too! And the last bit of the videos (“Free Sex and STD’s” and “Emma is a whore”) made me laugh soooo hard!

    Keep up the exceptional work!!
    Love the site!

  73. I had a bit of a problem with this episode, mainly because I feel the writers purposely decided to delay Jenna’s knowledge of her pregnancy to cross off the possibility of an abortion. If Degrassi really wants to be “real,” they need to reflect REAL situations and decisions of teens. 1/3 of teen pregnancies end in an abortion. That is the reality of most teens, ignoring it in the media just heightens the stigma on abortion.

    1. I disagree, how many pregnancies have their been on the show? Three and I’m not counting Mia because we never saw her while she was pregnant. So Manny had an abortion, that’s 1/3. Liberty didn’t and Jenna won’t so that equals the 2/3 of teen pregnancies that don’t end in abortion. I also thought it was ‘real’ the way Jenna acted, not wanting to confirm it. I feel as though I would want to do the same. Anyways, I thought it was the best episode Jenna’s ever been in. Although KC acted like a scumbag, he pulled it off amazingly. For me this was a good episode.

      1. While you are right about the statistics of 1/3 on Degrassi, I think that exploring the option of abortion and the abortion pill (RU486) through characters is very important. Also, remember that the episode when Manny had an abortion was not shown in the US. TeenNick has a large viewing audience in the United States, so it is definitely possible that the writers chickened out of an abortion plot to keep ratings.
