Wow a lot of spoilers in there, it does seem odd Australia would get Degrassi so quickly and give out so much information,
I don’t think they’d put it on their schedule if they didn’t intend on airing it. They can’t just pull it now because Canada hasn’t aired it.
Episode 4: #BuyMePizza. Summary: When Zoe doesn’t receive a callback, she worries that it’s because of her homosexual feelings & comes up with a way to hide her true self. When Grace is made fun of her appearance she decides to take on a new look.
Maybe its a scheduling issue?
Hunter in a psych ward? I never thought Degrassi would go there
Maya befriending Peter? Is Peter coming back or is it a new Peter ???
Peter coming back. Jamie just announced it on Twitter.
Episode 7 description is now also available 😊
Zig’s gonna be a dancer, now? He truly is a jack of all trades.
ZOË BURNS HERSELF?? She gets with Winston??? Oh can season 2 begin already!!
I feel Zoe is using Winston to hide her sexuality for her career and lying to Winston about it. TBH This does happen in the world of entertainment especially with Teens..
Kary, I know that you’re waiting to review the episodes at a later date but I really hope ou write about episode 500, #Throwbackthursday. It dealt with race and was so powerful, one of Degrassi’s most powerful episodes we’ve had in a while. That among with all the alumni and references to past episodes made it really special. I didn’t think Degrassi’s had it in them to give us this type of episode ever again and just when I think this generation won’t have its own standout episode they surprised me all over again. I thought my days of shipping were over but Tiny and Lola are great!
I am so glad I decided to avoid all spoilers and I did not read this before I watched the episodes. Those descriptions literally gave away everything that happens in the season. I actually didn’t find season 2 very entertaining, but it would have been way worse if i had read these. Why do they give out so much information? I almost miss the days when they aired those horribly deceiving commercials that made you think one thing was definitely going to happen but then it didn’t even really end up happening that way or being a topic at all.
