even though he is starting to develop a crush on Paige’s older brother, Dylan Michalchuk. Hazel has her eye on Marco,
and decides to actively pursue him with Spinner’s help. Marco decides that he can no longer lie about who his is, and

his life and starts to publicly ridicule him.
Spinner, Paige and Marco are all supposed to go to see Dylan and his hockey team play a big game. Marco decides to meet up
with everyone a little later, and walks through a dark and (seemingly) deserted park en route to the game. When Marco doesn’t
show up, Jimmy starts to worry. It turns out that Marco has been spotted by some horrible and violent bigots, who viciously
verbally and physically attack Marco. The police see what is happening, and scare the attackers away, just as Jimmy finally
locates Marco. Jimmy rushes to Marco’s side and offers him unconditional support. When school comes the next day, Jimmy
walks into the bathroom to see Spinner writing “Marco is a fag” on the wall. Jimmy is disgusted and storms out,
just as Marco walks in. At that point, Marco points out that Spinner is no different than the homophobes who beat him, which
seems to strike a chord in Spinner. He might learn to accept Marco after all.

sick. At first, everything seems normal, but things start to look suspicious when Snake’s nose starts to bleed relatively

a blast. When Sean starts to spend more time with his new friends, they start pressuring him to participate in their more
. . . legally questionable activities. Emma disapproves of her boyfriend’s new friends which leads to their breakup.

even say the L-word on Valentine’s Day, even though he gets her a dozen red roses. Before it’s too late to save
the relationship, Craig composes and sings a beautiful song to Ashley where he finally admits his love. It seems like nothing
is in the way of the two finally making love.
Craig decides to express his excitement over the news by telling Spinner. They can’t stop making sexual innuendos and
Ashley gets furious and calls the whole thing off, which hurts Craig more than he can express. He runs off and Manny quickly
follows. Manny it seems, has broken up with Sully because he had no idea how to treat a girl, unlike Craig. Craig turns to
Manny for comfort, but things go farther than the both of them planned when they end up having sex. The next day, Manny is
filled with hope for a relationship, but when Craig sees that Ashley has forgiven him over their fight, he knows that Ashley

is finally over Sean, and starts to develop a crush on Chris Sharpe. Chris is handsome, intelligent, talented and cool, but
there is one problem: he has a girlfriend. Emma and Manny go to a rave where Chris is DJing, and Manny encourages Emma to
go for it in spite of Chris’s girlfriend. Emma and Chris make-out, but she stops things before it goes too far, thinking
of Chris' girlfriend. Manny runs into Craig at the rave, and decides to follow her own advice. Manny and Craig hook up,
with Manny promising to keep everything a secret from Ashley. Emma eventually finds them on her bed (Emma’s bed!) and

She finally has some one who finds her attractive, loves her, and wants to spend all his time with her. Also, she is the lead
in the school play! Jimmy is directing, but Rick starts to overstep the bounds of being stage-hand and keeps offering advice,

a great new relationship. However, when word starts going around the school that Sean and his friends (Jay’s crew) are
stealing things, Emma becomes obsessed with bringing him to justice for the thefts, including the disappearance of Snake’s
laptop. Emma drags Chris into the quest, but Chris starts to feel taken advantage of, and doubts the sincerity of Emma’s
actions. When Chris points out that Emma seems to just want to punish Sean for what he did to her, Emma and Chris go their
separate ways. Once Emma realizes how pointless (and vengeful) her actions were, she apologizes to Chris and tells him that
she is over Sean once-and-for-all.
Spinner and Jimmy are starting driving lessons! Paige is driving really well, while Spinner is an absolute wreck. Things get

preparing for her Christmas pageant. Caitlin is even getting into the holiday spirit, enjoying spending time with her dear
high school friend Joey, but she is starting to feel like a bit of an outsider. Joey and Caitlin end up in a compromising
situation, Caitlin questions their ability to be just friends and Joey questions his relationship with Sydney.
Meanwhile, Craig is having a very . . . busy . . . holiday season. He and Ashley are going to perform a song in the
Christmas pageant, he is dealing with the flurry of activity at home, oh, yeah . . . he’s also dating both Ashley AND
Manny, something Manny is aware of, but certainly not Ashley. At first, everything seems great and he is certainly getting
a lot of encouragement from Spinner for being such a player. Unfortunately, things are getting more complicated every day,
and Craig keeps running the risk of being caught, or Manny spilling the secret. When Manny decides she can no longer be “the
other woman” she tells Craig that he has to choose. When he doesn’t want to, she decides to leave him. Craig doesn’t
want to lose either of them, so he lies to Manny and tells her that he has broken up with Ashley, even though he is still
dating both. Ashley finds some presents Craig bought and notices a figure skater charm bracelet. The next day, she notices
that Manny is wearing the bracelet and confronts her. Manny hesitates, but admits that she is dating Craig, thinking he has
broken up with Ashley. When the truth comes out, both Manny and Ashley both dump Craig and he is left facing a very lonely
Christmas. Joey finds out, and does his best to sympathize. He even tells Craig that he and Caitlin were engaged, but they
broke up when Joey cheated on her with Tessa Campanelli (Degrassi newbies
should check this story out, it's hilarious, but of course dramatic).
Sydney starts to get suspicious about Caitlin, and demands to hear that Joey
no longer has any feelings for his high school love. When Joey can’t look her in the eye, he looses Sydney, but finally realizes that he is still in love with Caitlin. He rushes to catch her at the airport
before she leaves on a work assignment. When he finds her, and admits his love, Caitlin admits her feelings and decides to
stay in town. As Craig so aptly put it, Joey’s Christmas present came early.
314–315 Accidents Will Happen (I & II)
events first: Toby is still jealous of JT’s popularity and decides to do something to get some popularity of his own.
He offers to hack into the school computer and alter Jimmy’s maths grade. Mr. Raditch catches them both and they are
given Saturday detention.
More inconsequential events: JT has gotten sick of Liberty’s hopeless crush
and cruelly tells her off. Although initially distraught, she soon finds a new object of affection in Sean. She tries to dress
cool, but just embarrasses herself and Sean. Sean decides to tell her very strongly that he has no interest. However, he offers
her some hope: it seems that his friend Towerz has a crush on her.
The real story: Manny and the Spirit Squad are getting ready for a very important
gymnastics meet, but Manny is starting to feel sick. She starts to suspect it wasn’t just the flu and realizes that
her and Craig might not have used protection when they had sex. She knows she can’t turn to her mother, so she goes
to a person who has been through this before: Emma’s mother Spike. Manny gets tested, and finds out that she is pregnant.
Spike and Emma give their full support. When Manny tells Craig, he also takes it surprisingly well, and decides to stand by
her and wants them to be a family. For Craig, it’s an unexpected dream come true; he’s never had a real family,
and a life with Manny would give him the family he always wanted. He does everything in his power to take care of and lavish
attention on Manny and his unborn baby.
However, Manny starts to question the logistics of having a child at such
a young age. Craig and Manny fail at taking care of baby Jack, and Ashley announces the news to the entire school. Manny decides
that motherhood isn’t for her, and she doesn’t want to lose 9 months of her life either, so she chooses to have
an abortion, with her mother’s knowledge and consent. Spike is also supportive, which hurts Emma, who finds abortion
an aberration. Manny tells Craig that she has decided to terminate the pregnancy, and he refuses to accept it. They fight,
and Emma comes to Manny's aid. Emma decided that although she doesn't approve of abortion, it is Manny’s choice,
and her and Craig need to accept that. The episode ends when Manny and her mother arrive at the abortion clinic.
316 Take On Me
The Breakfast Club? In case you missed it, you can catch it here. Mr. Raditch has
given five teens Saturday detention and they are not pleased, to say the least. Five teens, five entirely different personalities
. . . and no idea how to get along. There’s the “princess”
Hazel, who is in trouble for looking at pornographic websites, the “jock” Jimmy who worked with the “nerd”
Toby to hack into the school’s computers and change his maths grades, the “misfit” Ellie, who ditched class,
and Sean, the “criminal” who mouthed off to Mr. Raditch.
in an enclosed space, the group is initially unpleasant to one another, but once Hazel is dared to kiss Toby (!!!) and does
it, the ice is broken. Mr. Raditch doesn’t provide much supervision (why does that always happen during detention?)
so it’s only a matter of time before everyone takes off and starts to explore the hidden corridors of the school. Hazel
and Jimmy start to bond, and they become a couple by the end of the episode. Ellie and Sean open up to one another, Ellie
even going to far as to admit she cuts herself, and they quickly become a couple too. There are a few close calls when Mr.
Raditch finally decides to check up on the delinquents. By the time they regain their freedom, everyone has gained respect
for one another.
Sean and Amy have broken up by now.
317 Don’t Dream it’s Over

to end the relationship . . . until Marco steps in. Marco really thinks Sean would be good for Ellie and patches things up
between the two.
parents have let her borrow the van for the weekend, and she decides to take Spinner, Jimmy, Hazel and Terri out on a road
trip. Terri wants to bring Rick as her date, and everyone resists, until they realize that at least if Terri and Rick are
with them, they can protect her from his violence. They stop the car in some open woods to hang out, play Frisbee and relax.
Paige decides to mention her Rick concerns to Terri, who is offended and tries to defend him. Rick overhears the conversation
and takes off in a huff. Terri must decide to stay with the gang, or take off after Rick. She chooses Rick. Rick is overtaken
by his anger, grabs Terri and throws her down on the ground, and then runs off. Paige, Spinner, Jimmy and Hazel find Terri

and earns the respect of both Joey and Angela.
At Degrassi Community School, the Battle of the Bands is coming up and it’s shaping up to be a showdown
between Craig and Ashley. Ashley, Paige, Hazel and Ellie (Hell Hath No Fury) are performing “Mr. Nice Guy” a scathing
attack on Craig’s unfaithfulness. Downtown Sasquatch (Craig, Marco, Jimmy and Spinner) have a song, but no lyrics, because
Craig is lacking inspiration. Jimmy and Spinner suggest a horribly sexist rap they wrote, and Craig realizes that he has to
write lyrics, but he’s just not sure what. When he hears Hell Hath No Fury rehearsing, he is shocked; not only are the
girls performing great, but the song is sure to make a fool out of Craig. He tries to tell Ashley the he is sorry, but both
of them know he really doesn’t mean it. When the competition finally starts, Hell Hath No Fury is a big hit, and Downtown
Sasquatch still can’t even find their lead singer! Craig finally shows up at the last minute, and has written lyrics
that are great and the perfect apology to Ashley. Downtown Sasquatch wins the competition, and the right to record a single
in a professional studio.
319 It’s Raining Men
gets a big acting break – he’s starring in a fast-food commercial! He is really excited, and decides to hold a
viewing party at Toby’s house, so all his friends (and quite a few other Degrassi students) can view his acting debut.
JT really wants Manny to go, but she doesn’t feel comfortable going to Ashley’s house, considering their history.
Manny also doesn’t really feel like having to face Degrassi students outside of school, because she’s been labeled
the school slut. JT is still crushing on Manny, and finally convinces her to go. The night doesn’t turn out exactly
how JT imagined, because everyone find the commercial to be embarrassing, to say the least. JT’s “acting”
becomes the laughing stock of the school. It increases the bond between him and Manny though, because she can sympathize with
his newfound unpopularity.
has had a crush on Dylan Michalchuck for months now, and is finally ready to make his move. Unfortunately, it seems that fellow
Degrassi student Tom has already made a move on Dylan. Spinner wants to help Marco out, so spreads the rumor that Tom has
scabies (similar to fleas). Marco finally gets the courage to ask Dylan out, who says yes! Marco enlists Spinner’s help
to pick out an outfit for the date, and it seems as though Spinner has finally truly accepted his friend’s homosexuality.
Dylan arrives for the date, it seems to be one disaster after another. First, Dylan is amused by Marco’s embarrassing
hat, then Marco squeals like a terrified pig when he notices there is a bee in Dylan’s car, at the cinema, Marco is
too scared to hold Dylan’s hand, and as if things couldn’t get any worse, Marco and Dylan run into Marco’s
homophobic parents. Marco’s dad spends much of the evening insulting gays. Marco is convinced that his chances with
Dylan are ruined. When Spinner and Marco see Dylan the next day, Dylan asks to speak with Marco alone, who then asks him out!
Not only that, but Marco and Dylan share their first kiss.

Emma, she admits her fears. He is touched by her concern and his able to give her some good news: his cancer is in remission.
and Spinner decide that they deserve to take a day off from school. They decide to invite Ashley, who’s been having
a hard time dealing with things at Degrassi (mostly because of the drama of Craig). Throughout the day, the three play miniature
golf, go to an arcade, watch a movie, visit an art gallery, and watch an Elvis impersonator contest. Perhaps their most rebellious
action is when they go to eat at a fancy restaurant and leave without paying the bill (they left in a hurry when Mr. Raditch
showed up). The only downside is when Ashley complains about how horrible she feels her life is and decides that she’s
not coming back the Degrassi next year. She changes her mind, though, when they visit Terri at the hospital. It’s the
first time Ashley has seen Terri since she slipped into a coma and it gives Ashley a new perspective on her life.
Terri is finally well enough to leave the hospital, but unfortunately she’s not going to be coming back to Degrassi.
321 Our House
The Degrassi semi-formal is coming up and JT is desperate to ask Manny to be his date. Liberty convinces him to go for it. When JT asks her out, she initially turns him down because she still
isn’t comfortable facing everyone at Degrassi. JT keeps asking, hoping that she’ll fall for him, but starts to
get second thoughts when he sees Manny with Craig. It seems that JT is starting to believe what everyone has to say about
Manny being a slut. Manny is really hurt that JT thinks such horrible things about her. JT finally realizes how stupid, and
mean, he’s been. He apologizes and asks her to go to the dance with him, again. She finally says yes.

to come along, something Sean is loath to do. Sean refuses to go, and decides to go on student welfare and live alone in the
apartment. Jay and his crew decide to make Sean’s house the place to party. The party goes too far, though, and the
house is left practically destroyed, which almost destroys Sean’s friendship with Jay.
322 The Power of Love
It’s time for the Degrassi semi-formal.
Marco has spent weeks making the “Bollywood Nights” theme absolutely perfect.
Jimmy is also hoping to make the night perfect for Hazel. Jimmy and Hazel
make plans to go to the dance with Spinner and Paige. When the four go to pick up their outfits, it seems that Jimmy has accidentally
ordered a peach Sari (a woman’s outfit!). Then, when their limo arrives to take them to dinner, the limo is less than
expected. The limo is the most stereotypically western (Confederate flags, country music) vehicle you could imagine and even
the driver has a southern accent and cowboy hat. To make things worse, the limo has obviously seen better days. Jimmy made
reservations at a fancy restaurant, but it turns out to be the same place Paige and Spinner walked out on without paying just
a few weeks earlier. Jimmy and Hazel decide to eat there anyway, but when the bill comes, they are charged for 7 meals and
Jimmy doesn’t have enough money, so Hazel pays.
Sean doesn’t want to go to the dance because he isn’t exactly
the most welcome student in school, but Ellie convinces him to go. When he arrives, he sees Mr. Simpson, and is struck
with remorse for stealing his laptop. Sean admits his mistake to Mr. Simpson, who is devastated that a student he trusted,
and often defended, would do such a horrible thing. Sean is desperate to make up for what he did, but Mr. Simpson makes it
clear that apologizing won’t be easy. When Sean sees Mr. Simpson struggling with his car, Sean offers to fix it for
free. Sean knows it won’t solve everything, but he wants to try.
Back inside the dance, everything seems to be perfect. The decorations
are awesome, everyone is having a good time, and Marco gets to spend quality romantic time with Dylan. Marco is just about
to announce the King and Queen of the dance when one of the decorative curtains lights on fire. Everyone has to quickly
Jimmy, Hazel, Spinner and Paige arrive at the dance shortly after the fire trucks
do and see everyone gathered in the Degrassi parking lot. Jimmy is crestfallen, because absolutely nothing has gone the way
he wanted it to. Marco is also devastated, because he has blamed himself for almost burning down Degrassi. Hazel and Dylan
do their best to cheer up their respective dates. The students of Degrassi take everything with a grain of salt and pretty
soon the dance re-starts in the Degrassi parking lot.
