PLOT A: Declan returns and plots to get Holly J back.

Declan's "AHAHAHAHAHAH you're fooling around with Sav?!?!?!" face

So it’s been a while, but Declan is finally back!! He’s back in town for the Grundy Awards (Degrassi’s play from last year “Space Awakening” has been nominated), and to win back his beloved Holly J. The problem is Holly J and Sav are a “thing,” and for whatever reason Holly J seems disinterested in actually reuniting with Declan.

He’s not going to give up though, putting into motion a thorough plan to get her back. He lays the compliments on thick during his Grundy acceptance speech by dedicating it to Holly J, then invites her (and Sav) to the Coyne’s after party. Even though Holly J rejected him out on the balcony I was thoroughly impressed with Declan’s plot to get her there….getting Sav away from her by letting him DJ the party.

It was also very clever of Fiona to get drunk so that Holly J would stay the night with her and Declan. The ending of this plot is confusing though…specifically Holly J. We all know where both Declan and Sav stand, but it’s hard to pinpoint Holly J’s feelings in this episode. What started the confusion is her telling Declan about Sav, and telling him that what she and Sav have is nothing serious. Yet she tells Sav (who spends the episode questioning Declan’s motive and every move, and rightfully so) that “this,” aka their extended fling, is what she wants right now.

Declan singing "You've got it...I want it...I'll do...Whatever it taaaakes..."

So at the end when Declan’s kissing all over her and she’s saying “We shouldn’t be doing this,” I see her half-hearted resistance (though her face says it’s way more than that) as coming from a place where she feels like she’s cheating on Sav, despite her telling everyone (Declan, Sav and us, the viewers) that they’re nothing more than friends with benefits. I like that this episode features Holly J engaged in contradictory behavior and conflicting emotions, leaving me feeling the muddled emotional mess she, as well as Declan and Sav, are bound to experience in Part 2.

PLOT B: The fighting between Clare’s parents drives her to be disobedient.

The end is near for the Edwards family. Clare asks "WHY?!?!" Fans asks "DAMMIT, WHERE'S DARCY?!?!"

Declan isn’t the only one to return to Degrassi…Eli is back from suspension, and he wants to take Clare out on their first official date. It’s the same night as the Grundy awards, and Clare’s mom immediately rejects the idea of Clare going out. She tells Clare that they (along with her dad) need to have a family discussion after the awards, and Clare believes they’re going to tell her they’re getting divorced, given the continuous fighting between them.

Clare wins a Grundy award, however her parents are too distracted to be happy for her as they even argue DURING the awards ceremony. Backstage Clare tells Eli that she her parents said she couldn’t go to the Chuck Palahniuk book reading, but she intentionally decides to disobey them and goes anyway. Clare also decides she and Eli should both get piercings.

Eli questions Clare’s rebellious tactics as she refuses to answer her phone all throughout their date. I enjoyed the fact that Clare rebelling wasn’t over exaggerated in this episode, aka her all of a sudden going off and doing drugs or something of that nature. It was actually humorous that getting her ear pierced is something that would be edgy enough to piss off her parents. I like how the fighting between Clare’s parents has hit such a nerve with her, and upon knowing that they’re coming to an end has her behaving in the passive aggressive manner we all wish she could’ve possessed when initially dealing with Jenna way back when.

Noooooo Clare you're walking straight through the gates of hell!!

At the end of this episode, when Clare gets home late and her parents lay into her, she sarcastically mentions that it’s refreshing to see them mad at her instead of each other. The question now is, does Clare continue to behave this way in order to “stick it” to her parents, or to create a situation where her parents focus on her negative behavior instead of constantly arguing?

SUBPLOT: Chantay is distraught after Principal Simpson cancels the Power Squad.

If I couldn't access my blog, I would be devasted too.

There’s really not much to say about this “plot.” I don’t have a positive or negative thought about Chantay; to me she’s a character that’s sorta just there. Keeping up the theme of cracking down HARD, all clubs must have a staff supervisor. So without one, that means the Power Squad must be canceled. On top of that, Degrassi has gotten uber high tech by installing a powerful firewall and cell phone jammer to basically prevent anyone at the school from doing anything.

Anya’s annoyed, but Chantay seems to be the only person that’s truly upset by the news, since this is the year she was FINALLY named squad captain. She receives no support for an attempt to rebel or speak out because, thanks to the strict new rules, no one wants to get in trouble.

I simply didn’t see the point in this plot.  I don’t even know why I’m bothering to review it at this point. It actually detracted from the episode as a whole because it seemed completely out of place when put next to the other two plots. And there was so little time in the episode devoted to this plot that I wondered “Why even bother?” A key factor in episode plots (in the Part 1 episodes) is whether or not they make you want to find out what happens next, and unfortunately this one doesn’t. I’m sorry, but I don’t really care what happens to the Power Squad.

      Someone needs to tell the Degrassi writers and costume staff that Punk is dead. As is that over the top look.

      Btw, Sav must have a massive unit for all the gals to be crazy over him. It’s always the douchebags that have the big wieners.

      Declan needs to come out next week and say what has been needed to be said for a long time. “Sav…you suck at music. Please stop.”

    1. In the promo it seems like they’re making it seem that way, but the rape situation is strange. He didn’t force her, like push her down or anything in the episode. So if it really is going to be considered rape then I’m guessing it will have a lot to do with him forcing her emotionally, as in she didn’t stop him or push him away physically (I know she said no) because her emotions are still all mixed up, but she tried saying no because she didn’t want sex. The promos can sometimes seem more dramatic than the episode though so keep that in mind.

      4. Yea but in the other new promo it showed Holly J saying “last night I felt…pressured”. If she said no and was pressured into having said couldn’t that be considered rape? I can’t see Holly J calling it a rape though because they do have a past and even though she didn’t want to have sex she was def into him. But then again Paige was into Dean and she pressed charges but I still doubt it will go that far.

      5. What people fail to realize is that if you don’t push someone away, ti could be because of fear, and then it’s still rape. If someone feels forced, even if not physically, its bad behavior. I would love if Degrassi looked at rape this way

  5. Hey I was just curious what the song was that Sav was DJing too. Something like “Shake shake shake shake it” “We all know you too well” Google isn’t helping me on that one v.v’. Oh and it’s still rape as long as the person says no. Not only that, rape could technically be anything that one person makes another do, against that person’s will. It just usually is associated with sexual nature.

    4. No, rape is clearly defined (at least in the U.S.) as vaginal penetration. Sadly, anything else would be legally considered sexual harassment or molestation. (and no, I’m not saying that’s right. It’s a shame that it’s so hard to charge, say, a woman who rapes a man, because of the way the law is defined.)

    5. I’m thinking she thinks it was rape because she felt pressured. Being pressured into sex isnt nessecarily rape. I seen her kissing him back, if she really didnt want to do it she could have dodged the kiss by standing up saying declan i mean it no. and then leaving. See when she doesnt do that and just sits there and starts to kiss him and stops saying i dont think this a good idea then he thinks okay she changed her mind shes kissing me back yay. so she’s feeling pressured, but declan thinks she wanted it. she would have been free to walk out any time. so her own damn fault if she stayed there because she felt pressured to. I think pressure came from him wanting her so bad and her denying him and then making him feel bad and she just wanted to give him what he wanted so he would shut up about missing her. I believe thats what she considered as pressure.

      1. Yeah, that’s the thing. When she stopped saying “no”, and kissed him back, he probably got the wrong idea. Men aren’t mindreaders. If she felt pressured, how the hell is Declan supposed to know that? I mean, I guess you could argue that he should have been able to tell she was uncomfortable, but he might not have noticed.
        And anyway, if a girl started kissing on a guy and he said “no” at first and then started kissing her back because he felt “pressure”, would people call that rape? Of course not, because he’s a guy. It’s such a double-standard.

No matter what she felt, holly j should have had enough moral fiber to push away, or at least take a little more than declan saying please to sway her. With that being said, I think the storyline has potential, and id like to see holly j and sav stay together through it. The story with clare and eli was awesome as usual, but I hate how next weeks promo shows them falling apart already. I know the relationship was doomed from the begining, but c’mon. Even though its gonna drive me crazy, I can’t wait til next weeks episode.

  14. I loved seeing Eli and Clare again. They are by far my favorite couple! They Holly J & Declan storyline was good too. I used to love Dolly J, but when he started trying to pay for stuff, and when Holly J suspected he was cheating, I started disliking them. I feel like Holly J & Sav are a great fit right now, even though I wasn’t too keen about them in the beginning, they seemed off. Declan did rape her. If she said no, he should have stopped. If you go all the way back to season 2 when Paige was raped, she could have just gotten up and left, she didn’t physically try to get away, but she said no. It was just a more clear in her case, however, Declan still raped Holly J.

    I have only seen the TeenNick promo. I saw a lot of people on TeenNick boards saying that there would be “two break-ups in one night”. I really don’t think Eli & Clare will break up. They are stronger than that. And they have only officially been dating for like 2 episodes(granted they were 2-parters). Not only do I not want them to break up, but I honestly don’t see it happening. They were adorable in this episode. I loved the scene with them running off on stage with Clare’s parents seeing, ADORABLE! And the whole “Contraband and kissing” that was great too. They were just great, and it would be disappointing if we didn’t get to see more of them. I think Eli will realize why Clare is acting strangely(because of her parents) and he will help her get through it. They WON’T break-up.

    As for Holly J & Declan breaking up….They were already broken up. They clearly weren’t together. Even if you haven’t been keeping up with last season, how many times did they say “win her back” in this episode? Tons. Declan knew they were broken up, he just wanted to fix it, creepily. So, there aren’t any break-ups, in my opinion at least.

    Please share your thoughts, I love to hear back from people! Thank you:)

  18. Great episode. Clare in particular acted really well here. Only 2 complaints:

    The directors kind of pushed the “Declan is dark” thing a little too much. His persistance in getting Holly J back (and his death glare) felt a little too strong. And in the last scene the room was too creepy. Like yeah, I get the mood, you don’t have to push it.

    My other complaint is just something really small: The brief discussion that Clare and Eli had about the book reading after they went to it seemed scripted. I forget exactly what lines they used, but it was unrealistic for teenagers to just say stuff like that on a whim.

    Other than that, fantastic episode. Best one in a long time.

    ^Clare fic.

    Anyways, good episode(2x). Declan was trying to step up, but Holly J was not having it cuz her thing with Sav is the thing she needs right now. Being bogged down in a relationship is the last thing she wants. Sav’s my boy, but I wasn’t liking the way he was behaving when Declan got around. He was being all paranoid and stuff, similar to how he was acting when Anya told him that she was LARPing, pregnant, and when Mia made a move on him. It would seem like when things are not the way he wants it to be, uncomfortable buzzers go off.

    Fiona… WHY YOU RELAPSE? Its all good that you drink socially (sip the champ, eat some chips/pretzels, repeat), not till you are about to ralph.

    Chantay, you fighting the power too late. SMH at Marisol for not banding together with her spirit squad captain. SMH at Chantay for putting the sticky note in the bathroom.

    Clare… I like the attitude you displayed, but your emotions took over your body. SMH at Randal for showing up late to the awards ceremony and SMH at him and Helen for not clapping immediately when their daughter won an award.

  30. I understand that Holly J. said no, but Declan wasn’t on top of her. He wasn’t holding her down, or threatning her. He just made a move, and she kissed him back. I understand she said “No.”, but that was probably because she was thinking of how she shouldn’t do it, not that she didn’t want to. Although, I must agree, Declan was pretty dark in this episode. Also, Holly J. didn’t have to stay. She could’ve kept Fiona in Declan’s care. If they transform this into a rape story, I will deem this plot RIDICLOUS!

    Also, Eli & Clare are so adorable. I feel they’re the only Degrassi couples, since JT & Liberty, that can have real conversations, and bond before they become couples (Alli & Drew; Manny & Damien). I also like how they didn’t have Clare turn into a Hot Topic model for Eli’s benefit, but to stick it to her parents. I love the influence he’s brining upon her, but I hope she doesn’t get too crazy.

    As for Chantay, I love her. Although, I can’t help but wonder… Did her and Danny break up? O.o

      Declan was dark because he’s desperate to get Holly J back. Companionship is something that he yearns for I think, hence the party, lunch, etc. When guys are in love, they tend to do things deemed questionable by others.

      1. If she didn’t want to, she could’ve left. As simple as that. Also, she didn’t need to stay in the first place. And, if she wanted to leave, why didn’t she call herself a freakin’ cab. She’s just going to say she felt pressured so Sav won’t get as angry with her. If anything, she’s saying she was “pressured” because she doesn’t want to seem like the bad person. It was just a messed up incident that is going to be blown completely out of proportion.

      It does seem like something he would do though: show up to school in his regular clothes just to see if he can get away with it. The best you could say was that at least it was in-character for him.
      Anyways, Degrassi always does pointless things. That’s why Chantay had a plot in this episode. XD

  36. Everyone seems pretty up in arms about whether the Holly J/Declan storyline is rape or not, but I have to come in with it doesn’t matter. I really love this plotline, because there’s been many a time, particularly at that age, where I personally ended up in a sexual situation that I did not necessarily want to be in. Sometimes saying no is harder than you would think, especially with someone who you’ve had sex before with. And we did see Holly J drinking that evening, yes? Because even being a little tipsy can make you go along with it, when it’s not necessarily what you want.

    I LOVE that they’ve taken this direction with a storyline, because it REALLY hits home for me.

    The Clare plot was SO good this episode, I’m worried that the next episode takes it too far. I was really hoping Clare was rocking that look as a rebellion against the dress code. I have so much second hand embarrassment over it otherwise, cause boy is it terrible. Also, dear Clare, please don’t ever straighten your hair again. As a person with the straightest hair imaginable, it’s just a crime to lose your perfect curls. Sincerely, Emma.

    The Chantay plot seemed a little superfluous, but I’m glad someone’s getting mad about the Degrassi crackdown, and rightfully so that it’s Chantay who has been there longer than anyone else.

If she didn’t want him; she wouldn’t of kissed him back, she wouldn’t of told Sav to go, she wouldn’t of implied out if no where that her and sav will eventually break up.

    Eli and Clare, (pardon my French) BUT I SO FUCKING LOVED IT!!!!! Clare rebelling is perfect! I would too. After not even acknowledging her win. Fuck yeah I’d run of with Eli! I especially love how the run behind the stage holding hands and Eli’s just looking at the audience! Perfect! Haha. I thought the plot was amazing, good thing they made it still Clare like her parents would hate her getting her ear pierced. Not her getting drunk and fucking Eli or something. And Eli caring what her parents will think of him, cute! Then Clare standing up to them in the end, being all sarcastic and such. Perfect way to end it! :D

  38. Am I the only one who hates the whole Holly J and Sav thing anyway? Cmon the past seasons all Holly J did was complain to Anya about how Sav can’t treat a girl right “if he’s grown up enough to have sex then he’s grown up enough to tell his parents”. I mean seriously, HJ is coming across as a hypocrite now. I know I personally would not want to be with a guy who is scared to tell his parents what he really wants in life and I would find that totally disrespectful and HJ deserves better.

    Declan treated her like a queen and he still wants to. He’s been insanely romantic towards her. When given the choice who would you pick? The guy who shows he cares in public or the guy who is too scared to stand up for himself? Really, a no brainer there.

    Yet now the girl we’ve always seen being able to stand up for herself and tell others where to go has become the insecure one and I really don’t like where this is going. I like Declan and HJ too much for them to ruin my image of them and yet thats what Degrassi is trying to do.

    Also, as for those of you guys who are arguing that he can’t get away with rape. The state I live in says that rape is not considered rape if a girl agrees at first and later says no once it has started. Just to throw that out there to be devils advocate on that subject.

    1. I don’t really like Holly J and Sav as a couple, but I do like Dolly J. So, I am kind of pissed that they made Declan out to be a creeper here. It’s making me not like Dolly J, which I think is the point, because they want the fans to get used to Savvy J. But, see, I don’t think it’s fair to bring a character as awesome as Declan back just to use him as a device to make poeple like Holly J with Sav, which for me, won’t work anyway.

      I do think Holly J is being a hypocrite, although, I do think that Anya could have been more understanding about Sav’s situation. It’s easy for her to tell Sav to be honest with his parents about their relationship when we don’t see her parents giving her the same shit about marrying someone who doesn’t share your same ethnicity. It’s actually very difficult to deal with for a person. I have a friend whose parents are completely against her being with someone of another race, and it’s difficult, because they told her they would disown her if she went against their wishes. It’s not just about having the backbone to stand up to your parents, it’s about choosing someone else over your family, who you also love. I understood Anya’s irritation, but I think she was a little hard on him, considering she met them and knew what they were like. And Alli does the same Goddamn thing to Drew, but no one says anything about that.

I think that her rebellion is still very in-character, like you stated, unlike other character rebellions such as Emma’s (Secret), Manny (UGTL), or Jane (CTM). I also like the little role reversal here with Clare and Eli: previously, Clare was the one wanting Eli to stay out of trouble, while here, Eli was the one encouraging Clare to chill out.

      I used to like Declan, but he’s starting to creep me out. I like Clare’s rebellion as it is right now, because it’s sort of cute like this, and still in-character. But the way she looks in the new promo has me concerned.

      And the role-reversal is interesting. I think Eli’s just concerned because he’s never seen Clare like this before, so it’s understandable.

      And I share your irritation over them getting the A-plot over Eclare. Everyone always gets the A-plot over Eclare. Seriously, even in All Falls Down, I thought the Eli/Clare/Fitz drama was way more intense than the Drew/Alli/Owen/Bianca business. The only time it actually got interesting with Alli was when she almost got raped by Owen. But we had the serious threat of escalating violence with Eli and Fitz way before that, and I was so much more interested in seeing what happened with them.

And Idk but look back he’s done a lot of creepy things with girls, Jane for an example. Also he makes the most creepiest faces! I think he would be a perfect rapist. Okay I know that sounds really bad but come on think about it. He’s a smooth talker and always ends up making chicks hook up with him even though deep down they don’t want to or they are with someone else, usually the latter. The way he talks just creeps me out yet I still like him. I think he’s put his little creepy creep spell on me as well. Ugh I just feel uneasy when he’s on screen.

    I want to like that Chantay finally got her own plot, but the writers gave her like 10 seconds of air time and they made her seem almost childish with the way she was squealing and stomping around. And I don’t even think it’s anything to do with Jajube’s acting — she’s been performing the same way since they made her a regular in season 8. This injustice falls almost entirely on the writing. And that sucks. If I were Jajube, I would be pissed. But hopefully, the plot makes a 180 in the second part next week.

It always felt like every episode was about her when I wanted it to be about anyone else BUT her, because I just don’t care about her that much. But I think Eli and Clare have only gotten a few plots that were about them as a couple. A few others had them in it, but weren’t really focused on them. And they’ve never even actually gotten an A-plot, I don’t think. So if you’re already tired of them, then you must be very bored when they come on screen.

    When Clare tells Eli she wants to be spend the night with him, he says yes, and they end up having sex.A couple weeks later Clare comes home to her parents worst fight EVER, and so she yells to try to get them to stop,like she does in the promo, and they dont listen and she has a miscarriage.Now the twist is that neither she or Eli or the viewers knew she was pregnant,so it creates a situation where clares parents are forced to put theie differences behind them and focus on Clare for a change. But the only problem with this storyline is that the idea of a almost pregnancy is a little overbearing and that would be like the 4th one throughout the history of dtng.

    But tell me what you think, its just a thought that came to my head.

    I’m interested to see how they handle part 2. From the promo, it seems like it has a lot of potential. I just hope that they don’t try to make Declan into this bad guy that actually raped Holly J. But I do think that a story line about pressured sex, not necessarily rape, could be powerful because a lot of people deal with that pressure in relationships. I’m looking forward to it!

    Another thing…does anybody else find it weird that they never really had an episode about Anya’s reaction to Holly J and Sav? They had that one episode when they were working on the project together, but that was more about Anya dealing with her mom’s sickness. They never really extended it beyond that point, and Anya and Sav have too much history for her to just not care, even with thinking about her mom.

When he really cares about something, he just goes too far. i peg him as the type to have a craig-esque mental breakdown if something really bad happens with holly j (or, at least, i think he would have if they’d ended differently that they did). that said, i have no doubt that he loves holly j and i think he literally didnt notice that she said no. he’s just so sure that they belong together, he cant comprehend why its wrong to steal her from sav or why she would refuse. and now, i think he’s in for a wake up call when fiona tells him hj didnt want to.

    heres an excerpt about a rape documentary that covers the grey area

    documentary artist Aishah Shahidah Simmons created a film called “NO! The Rape Documentary” about eight women who were raped, one of
    which was her mother. During a discussion after the documentary, one woman stood up and talked about how she was unsure if she was raped because her body made it seem like she was into the sex when her mind was not. The panelists onstage, as well as in the film, discussed how rape is not only physical but mental, and one can be manipulated into being raped. The woman stops saying “no” out loud, although she’s said it many times before. Sometimes she stops saying it because she’s afraid of what he’ll do if she keeps protesting. Other times she may assume she’s into it if her body is wet. The body responds biologically, and the man decides that she must want to have sex because she’s stopped protesting.

      The way Holly J said “no” is different than the way, for instance, Paige said “no”. Paige was very clear. Holly J said it half-heartedly as if she wasn’t sure, and made it seem like she just changed her mind. Maybe she did feel pressured, but how was Declan supposed to know that? Yes, he’s a douche for trying to convince her when she obviously didn’t fell like it, but how was he supposed to know she didn’t just change her mind? That doesn’t make him a rapist. Now if she said “yes” at first and then changed her mind, and he kept going anyway, that would be rape. Personally, I think if you don’t want to do it, but you don’t make that fact very obvious, then it’s not rape. Rape can be mental as well as physical, but only when you’re traumatized from the physical aspect. You can’t just claim “I was mentally raped because I didn’t want to and I felt pressured” because there’s no way to really draw the line when you didn’t externalize that feeling.

      It’s not as simple as just saying “no”, as one can see.

    My best friend was raped by a boy her age. Ok? She sed no. She didn’t push or Ty to run or cry. She was scared, shocked, and very pressured. Declan runnig his hands over holly j and kissing her as she spoke was a good example. She was rambling very nervously and he was ignoring her and saying he loved her and focasing on himself. Thast rape. He PULLED her head towards him and started kissing him. Jut because she didn’t run away we all say her say no 2 or 3 times, tense up, and get very nervous. I think they end up having sex due to the new promo.

    I liked Eli and claires plot they are a sweet couple. They remind me of sean and emma. Bad boy meets good girl they balance each other out. This time Eli cared about Claire more than he cared about staying out with her. It showed he wants his to work out and he acually loves her not using her. I loved their kiss it was so sweet. And I’m glad they are taking it slowly. I hate her new look and I hope it ends and I’m glad he hates it.

  79. This episode was very well done!
    As said above, if you say no it is rape. I don’t see this plot line running through with a trial and stuff but I don’t think it will make Holly J and Declan magically get back together. Obviously Holly J and Sav are done though…I just don’t get why he’d get with Jenna…hopefully that will all make sense when it happens

    And if the episode runs in the order of the promo then Clare goes back to normal. I think she’s just dipping her toes into every which way of ‘rebellion’ she can think of just to get a rise out of her parents. As if she is trying to appear to be ‘out of control’ so her parents feel that they have to stay together for Clare’s sake. I think once her parents get a divorce this whole act will die down (at least the dressing) but I did read on here awhile back that “Jesus etc’ is the episode where Eclare may have sex. And if they do, power to them.

    I’m not even commenting on the Chantay plot. it’s either going to create a whole rebellion army with a bunch of detentions. But let’s be serious, Simpson is such a softy. I really don’t see this whole uniform hard ass image sticking around forever especially since the teachers aren’t happy about it. I think this will lead to the school potentially going somewhat back to normal.

I mean it deffffinitley did not fit in well in this episode. The whole point of the new season (part 2 at least) is that Degrassi is under new changes and stricter rules. Well it’s only been 3 episodes but no one seems to be soo against it … except Chantay. She’s the only one who seems to hate the new and is doing something about it. I think it’s a good idea to have her (or somebody) against it, especially since they are canceling something that she participates in and is part of her life, even though the way she does it is very annoying.

  90. My favorite part of this episode was, of course, the eclare scenes. Eli and Clare seem like they are one of the best Degrassi couples because they communicate and understand each other and there is just so much chemistry between them. They aren’t just some random couple, like Savvy J., for instance. But I do admit that I like Sav with Holly J. more than I like Declan with her. Those scenes where Declan was trying to win Holly J’s heart back were creepy to me. o_O

    I can’t wait til Friday to see part 2. I really really want to know what went down between Declan and Holly J. that night….and to watch more eclare scenes and hope that they don’t fall apart. And I could care less about the power squad, honestly.

    This episode was better than the last episode, for sure.

It really drove the point home that Declan can’t handle not getting what he wants.

        Also I agree with Crazy4Eclare I like Savvy J they are simple. They are no drama not every couple in High school is crazy intense like the ones on Degrassi. Some are easy going. I think Sav brings out the chill in Holly J She is not as intense around him.

    1. To my knowledge, she said ” we shouldn’t be doing this” and “no”. Not “get off me!”, “help!”, “stop it” or put up a fight. It’s not rape! It’s guilt because she’s with Sav!

    2. It’ll be like Paige and Dean, ugh. Degrassi is staring to repeat themselves if they do this.

    3. To be honest, I’m pretty burned out on Declan and Holly J. because of season 9.

No. She said we shouldn’t be doing this (that does not mean she wants to) and no (once) and started kissing him back.

  107. the only reason i dont see the Dolly J thing as rape is because i know deep down Holly J wanted it. Shes only regretting cuz in her head shes like “this isnt right”. She broke up with Declan on account of she as doing thru a lot at the time, declans poor choice of worse and Chantay gossiping in her face. Declan didnt see holly J as a gold digger, but he cant help but want to give his girl the finest things. The “What do I have to buy you to get you to do what I want” thing was more of the slip of the tongue. His tone was joking and i dont think he really ment it like that. Im sure Holly J could do whatever the hell she wanted and Declan would be fine with it, just he was tryiing to see if he could convice her to do wat he wanted by getting her something, and if not he’d probably still get it for her anyways and let her do her own thing. He wasnt literally trying to bribe her with things. Then like, Holly J was going thru a lot emotionally and financially. It was her first long distance relationship so she was freaking out, her family doesnt have money anymore so she’s was stressed and still adapting, and then Chantay was just the icing on top of the cake to make Holly J be so sensitive to what Declan said to break up with him. Her and Sav arent even a real couple. I think Sav just makes her happy and probably is a nice little sexual bang here and there, but her heart truely is with Declan which is why she had sex. She said “i don’t think we should do this” as if its against the law not against her will, then a weak no. She didnt say “i dont WANT to do this.” To me her face read a thought process along the lines of “do i just let him back? I wanna prove a point that I dont ‘need’ him, but i want him. but sav? well we’re not a real couple, are we? damn…idk.”

    And you cant compare Paige/Dean to Holly J/Declan. Rape kinda does have to be forceful, not in a sense u gotta be thrown and hit, but the rapist has to acquire some kind of restraint on you to get you to do what they want. Cuz when u just turn ur head, or laydown and its all ur own motion…thats you allowing it. Even if Dean wasnt as forceful as he was being, he would have had to gotten paige restricted somehow. Declan didnt have HollyJ resricted, she could have stood up. and emotional pressure isnt enough to cry rape….cuz to give in to pressure is ur own problem. You cant blame ur friend for making u do drugs unless he shoves it down ur throat or they give it to you without you knowledge. If they tease u and u give in…kinda ur own fault. Doesnt mean they’re right for teasing you, but you could have gotten away or just not have done it. Well anyways…..Paige and Dean, they had no past, no love. Paige just had a crush, didnt even know him and wasnt she a virigin at that point? TOTALY different situations and totally different aftermaths. I think holly J’s true after the fact feelings is she doesnt know if she really wants Declan back or not or if she wants Sav or Declan, not that she didnt want to have sex and he violated her. She maybe used the word “pressured” cuz shes knows if there was no initial move made by Declan, nothing would have happened, but she probably still considered it in her head.

    Plus, the scene was like a few seconds.You would think someone would have to pressure you a LOT more than that. And she wants drunk, wasnt upset, wasnt out of her right mind (like how clare is acting), so you cant look at it as if he took advange of her. He wasnt even guilt tripping her so idk how ppl thought that. lol. If he wanted to guilt her it would be “but i was so good to you in the past, you owe me that. I bought you this and that when i didnt have you. You said you loved me and lost your viriginity me so why are you with Sav?” His plea was more like “we were good together, I miss you. I wanna be with you again” …..no guilt trip there!

  108. Most of all I just think it’s out of character for Holly J. After seeing the sneak peek I don’t think Declan is being written completely out of character, but Holly J? Yes. I don’t buy or accept the whole “scared” or “shocked”. Holly J is the strongest female character on this show. It’s not like her to not try and take a physical stance in this type of situation if the simple “No” is not getting across. Keep in mind “No” can be interpreted in a lot of ways. Declan could have easily thought she was just conflicted between her feelings for him and for Sav and she just gave in when she kissed back. Anyways, this is Declan. Declan would never try and hurt a woman in this way. Especially a woman he loves. This guy was ready to tear Bobby’s head off when he found out what he was doing to his sister. I think that says a lot about how he feels about abuse. Period. Holly J knows all of that.

    And I think all of the “creeper” comments and the arguments of why is a lil crazy.
