Degrassi Wrap Up: Building a Mystery, Pt. 2
Oh, my Beckdam heart. Let's talk about tonight's Degrassi. (If you haven't seen it yet, watch it here. *Spoilers below*)
Becky and Adam like each other a lot, and I really, really wanted their relationship to work. I'm so mad at Becky's parents right now -- and so glad this episode aired on Spirit Day, since it's such a good example of how close-minded and judgmental people can be. The Bakers seem like intelligent, caring people, but the way they treated Adam when they found out he's transgender broke my heart. (Rewatch that scene here.) I hope they come around, because this storyline is starting to feel Romeo & Juliet-ish, and I just can't handle that. Beckdam have dealt with enough. I want some happiness for them -- and soon. I don't want to make you cry, but I'm going to post a screenshot from that final scene:
I can't even imagine what Becky's going through. It's an impossibly hard choice. One on side, she has her family, whom she's always been super-close to, and her faith. On the other side, she has Adam, the one guy who makes her heart happy. That's got to be so hard, because no matter what she decides, she's going to end up sad. And what kind of "therapy" are her parents sending her to? I am starting to cry again just thinking about it. I'm going to change the subject before I get tears all over my keyboard.
Drew and Bianca are getting MARRIED! For realsies!! I'm glad that Bianca explained to Drew that she needs him to pay for the Vegas tickets. At first I was like "Where is Fiona getting $3000?!?" Like I said in last week's post, I think Bianca and Drew's marriage might actually work, but I know I'm in the minority there. Yes, they're young, but they've been through SO much, and they really love each other. (Sigh. I'm still thinking about Adam and Becky no matter how hard I try to move on.)
Let's talk about Eli's short films. Most of my good friends at NYU were in the film program, so I've seen a lot of student-made short films in my day. Eli's first project might be the worst one I've ever seen. Life tip: Don't do drugs. (I'm sure the Degrassi team had fun making the short films for this episode, though.) I'm glad Eli got a second chance, because his next project, about his relationship with Clare, was almost TOO GOOD. I loved it. It made me tear up.
One last little note: I love WhisperHug, and I'm so glad Becky got them to perform at the fundraiser. I hope they someday put out an album, and I hope it's for sale in the real world.
p.s. I am still thinking about Becky and Adam. I just want to hug them both so hard.
