An overwhelming majority of people assumed Maya had the key, but the problem is Degrassi wrote Champagne Supernova with the intent of making it a mystery, meaning Maya was TOO easy of a choice. The comment about Zig going to check on Miles the night of the party would lead one to believe that one of them is the culprit, but honestly while saying it out loud the whole handcuffing thing sounds like a Grace move. Out of the 5 potential people left, Frankie (not really her style) and Eli (the handcuffing would’ve probably happened at The Dot) are least likely, but you never know. By default, Winston is in the middle.
I’m also liking the hints these minis are dropping, confirming Stephen Stohn’s comment that these minis were “canon-ish.” We know for a fact Miles wants Maya, but if you ignore fandom speculation and strictly pay attention to what’s happening in the show, Maya has shown no romantic interest in Miles since breaking up with him (just like she showed no romantic interest in Zig during that faux “love triangle” in season 13).
We also learned that Miles’ dad won the election, which is bad for Miles, Frankie and Hunter. Their lives will continue to be under a microscope, and it also means Mr. H might be too busy being mayor to work on repairing the damage within his family…but at the same time the kids will be expected to maintain the public image that their family is just sunshine and unicorns.
SIDE NOTE: We’ve reached that point in time where people start harassing the networks/everyone associated with Degrassi about when we’re getting a new promo. Even though Stephen Stohn said there was going to be an 11-week hiatus which would put Degrassi returning on April 7th, things are always subject to change until a press release or promo confirm the date.
Promos tend to get released sometime within the range of about 2 1/2 weeks to 4 weeks before the premiere date. If April 7th were the official date I’d be expecting a promo this week. However, I’m not because if it were me it would probably make more sense to announce Degrassi’s return sometime next week to coincide with the release of the final two Champagne Supernova minis on the 24th.
