Thunderstruck will air as a one-hour finale on Tuesday, July 29th. We’ve known for 8 months that Clare would be traveling to NYC and that Zig would be more than likely be involved in the finale (not with Eclare though…it would make no sense seeing as how he has no connection to them).
Maya, Zig, and Zoë plan to attend a Degrassi dance, but get stranded at the Matlin house due to an unexpected storm. Meanwhile, Clare heads to NYC for an interview at Columbia and fears running into Eli, and Drew searches for missing Becky.
Degrassi has filmed episodes in NYC before, but this time they chose to handle scenes on set with the green screen, just like they did with the Paris episodes.
If you haven’t seen them yet, here are the episode descriptions for the four episodes prior to Thunderstruck:
1335 – Hypnotize (airs 7/1): Mr. Yates offers Tristan writing help if he comes to his apartment; Imogen is enamored with Jack.
1336 – Out of My Head (airs 7/8): Mr. Yates warns Tristan about concealing their affair; Imogen will do anything for Jack’s affection.
1337 – Believe Pt. 1 (airs 7/15): Zoë worries about how she is being portrayed in her trial, so she takes matters into her own hands.
1338 – Believe Pt. 2 (airs 7/22): Becky is conflicted about her testimony, but knows what the right thing would be.
