Tonight is the final episode of Degrassi 13C. After tonight the show is taking a hiatus; hopefully we’ll receive a timetable for the show’s return after tonight’s episode.
What’s interesting to me after watching Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1 is how there seems to be a general theme running through this entire episode, kind of like the Degrassi Junior High days. In this episode, everyone’s personal issues seem to be bleeding all over everyone around them, causing a clusterfuck of drama.
Zoë’s troubles are the most emotionally heavy. She’s still not over her sexual assault. Channeling those thoughts and emotions happened to benefit her by helping her land her first role since West Drive. But how long will holding onto and using those feelings to advance her career last?
In the two love triangles, everyone’s issues are clashing and causing issues for everyone else. Maya’s issues with needing to “protect” Zig are causing issues with Miles that will explode once Zig finds out. Miles has anger issues that are getting in the way when they don’t need to, because he already has the girl. We will see some of Zig’s issues tonight once Maya tells him the truth.
Eli’s being weird and it’s causing Clare to freak out. That promo clip of Dallas talking to Drew about rebounds makes me think Drew’s recent rebound issues will come into play.
These two situations are so unnecessarily complicated, but isn’t that how us humans like to do things? Whether we mean to or not, we make our lives far more complicated than they need to be. Female characters have taken a beating, physically and emotionally, in 13C. The best case scenario would be that Maya and Clare realize the situations they’re in and the guys they’re dealing with are a mess right now, and both ladies just walk away.
I’ll post my review for this episode late tonight. I’m not quite sure if TeenNick is planning to air a promo teasing 13D after tonight’s episode, but I’ll update once we know for sure. It’s already been confirmed that After Degrassi will be airing a 13D sneak peek tonight. I’ll post that as soon as it becomes available.
