Degrassi: "Hollaback Girl, pt. 1" Recap

Posted on Apr 27, 2012 by Lisa

Who's ready to talk about tonight's Degrassi? (If you haven't seen it yet, watch it here.)

*Spoilers below. Don't read any further until you've seen the episode.*

Bianca and Drew

So much happened between Bianca, Drew, and Katie tonight that I don't know where to start. Bianca used to stress me out (probably because I would've been afraid of her if she had gone to my high school), but now I really want to see her succeed. I will NOT be happy if she gets in trouble for trying to be Katie's friend. Right now, I can't imagine why anyone would want to be Katie's friend... I feel like the terrible things she said to Bianca in the kitchen (rewatch that scene here) all sounded true. I think she meant all of it. I can't help wondering how much of Katie's usual friendly attitude is fake. Was this a peek at the "real Katie" or is her addiction changing her personality?

Katie was being so mean to Bianca that I sort of wanted Drew to find out about it and break up with her... but that doesn't mean I'm OK with him cheating on her. I'm not. It's cool that he and Bianca both like each other, but we've seen Drew cheat before, and he'll probably do it again. Maybe this new Bianca is too good for a cheatypants like him? Maybe he and Katie kind of deserve each other? Hmm.

Mo and Marisol

During last week's episode, Marisol seemed like she was growing as a person. This week, she seemed just as shallow as ever. Mo really likes her and wants to make her happy, but are they just too different for it to work? Back when Marisol went to The Dot with Drew, she seemed to treat it like a date, but suddenly with Mo, it's just a friend thing? Not cool, Marisol.

Alli and Dave

Help me out... is anyone from Degrassi in a happy relationship right now? Not Alli and Dave, that's for sure. It makes sense that he's a total mess after what happened with Jacinta. Do you think Alli's pushing him too hard to talk about it? (It bugged me a little that she invited him over to watch a movie instead of talking, and then as soon as the movie was over, she was like "Let's talk!") I feel like Dave is trying to figure out how to cope, and Alli may unintentionally push him away.

Will ANY of these relationships survive? Do you want them to? Share your Degrassi love predictions in the comments.

p.s. I just realized that despite all the complicated relationships happening elsewhere at Degrassi, Tori and Zig seem relatively happy together. Yay for young love.
