Degrassi Finale Recap: 'Thunderstruck' Parts 1 + 2
Is it really true? We've wrapped up another season of Degrassi? It feels like just yesterday we met Zoe, Winston and Miles for the first time, but it sure has been a wild ride! And last night's one-hour finale was no exception, as a storm caused a dramatic downpour at the Degrassi dance (say that three times fast) and made us really, really excited for Season 14. Hopefully you've caught up on "Thunderstruck" Parts 1 & 2 online because we have lots to discuss!
Because of someone named Shmaya Shmatlin, both Miles and Tristan decided to skip the dance. Instead, they set out to have the Best Bro Date Ever at Miles' house. But when the power went out in the midst of the thunderstorm, Miles, Tristan, Frankie and Winston decided it was time for an epic game of Murder. But the game really started to heat up when Miles found Tristan's hiding place and Tristan said, "Come any closer, and I'll kiss you."
Miles said, "Go ahead."
Since Becky was having a hard time in the aftermath of the trial, Drew swooped in to comfort her. It wasn't really clear whether or not he was interested in her as more than a friend, but once the storm unleashed its wrath upon campus, thiiiiings started to happen.
While the whole school took shelter, Becky freaked everyone out by hiding out alone in the boiler room. When Drew finally found her there, the door locked behind them and they were trapped. A mysterious toxic gas started to leak from one the pipes (LOL "Did you fart?") and it started going to their heads.
One thing lead to another, and they kissed. ...Becky and Drew kissed.
Meanwhile, Maya went to war with Zoe about everything that had happened in the past few months. She drunkenly accused Zoe of stealing all her "people" (Tristan... Miles... Zig...) and ran away into the storm in a fit of anger. But it seemed like Zoe, after everything that happened between them, genuinely wanted to work it out. So she followed her into the tempest.
The storm was so violent, however, that Zoe had to break into The Dot so she and Maya could take cover. It was kind of a blessing in disguise, though, because being trapped together finally gave 'em an opportunity to work it out. Yep, Zoe and Maya decided to be on the same team for once (...and we're so glad because they harmonize realllllly well together).
In New York, Clare soaked up the city before her Columbia interview. After exploring the sights and roaming the different NYC neighborhoods, nothing could bring her down.
Until something did.
What Clare thought was a fateful Eli-spotting brought her face-to-face with a pole and landed her in the Emergency Room. Her admissions interview would have to wait.
Which brings us to this. Clare got her interview rescheduled for the morning, and in need of a place to crash for the night, she called Eli. After everything that happened with Drew this year, the two had a heck of a lot to work out. But as it turns out, a mature conversation was all it took to patch things up.
In fact, after Clare aced her interview the next day (YAY!), Eli confessed what every single Eclare fan hoped he would confess.
"I'm not over you." *Gasp* Things were starting to look up for Clare, and a promising future seemed totally attainable.
...Until she got a call from the hospital. After her routine blood work, Clare found out that she and her, um, baby were going to be just fine.
Well, Season 14, here we come!
By the way, #Triles may be more than a one time thing.
Oh and #Brew? That might be a thing now, too.
What were your reactions to this game-changing finale? Could these new romances last? Will Clare be able to deal with this life-changing news? Shout it out in the comments!
