Degrassi Recap: 'How Bizarre'
Last night on Degrassi, there was a little bit of family drama. Drew got caught up in Hollingsworth baggage and Becky had to bear the cold shoulder from her own parents in the midst of her brother's trial. If you haven't seen "How Bizarre" yet, watch it here and then read our recap below!
DON'T KILL THE MESSENGER
While working on Mr. Hollingsworth's's campaign, Drew walked in on Mrs. H. crying in the pool house. Upset over her strained relationship with her husband, she confided in Drew as he comforted her.
It seemed he may have been a little too comforting, however, because later on Drew received a half-nude photo from the boss man's wife! And to make matters worse, he received it right when he was trying to prove to Alli and Jenna that he wasn't using Clare for a meaningless hookup.
It turns out, Mrs. H. sent that photo in an embarrassing moment of weakness and apologized. She vented to Drew about her husband was sleeping with his campaign manager (of which Drew was previously unaware) and wanted to give him a taste of his own medicine. Despite being relieved that the Mrs. didn't have the hots for him, Drew felt obligated to let Mr. H. know about the picture.
Unfortunately for Drew, who was now armed with knowledge of the affair, Mr. H. decided it would best to put out this fire... by firing Drew.
Ever since Becky turned in Luke for Zoe's assault, things have gotten tense at home. Her parents and Luke have become distant, and although they never blamed her for reporting Luke, she felt their fingers pointing at her. To escape, Becky began playing a computer game called "Realm of Doom" in which she met a particularly dapper, but completely simulated, medieval knight.
And with little more than a kiss and some alone time in the alternate universe, things got pretty serious between the two warriors. Hm... wonder where this could be going? Mysterious? Or Magical?
After deciding to leave the gang, Zig started to show a new-found interest in cooking and got a job at a trendy new restaurant through his mediator Jose. But when the executive chef at the restaurant halted Zig's dreams of becoming a culinary artist by insisting he start with basics (which meant watching another cook chop onions), Zig felt like he was being treated as nothing more than a delinquent charity case.
Back in the Rubber Room, Grace suggested that if he wanted respect, he'd have to demand it. But Zig's chef made it clear that respect had to be earned. And back to chopping onions he went.
Zig made a big decision to leave the gang and start anew, but will he be able to keep his head up? Will Drew be able to get his job back? Will Becky fall farther into the "Realm of Doom"? Tell us what you thought of this episode in the comments, Degrassians!
