Well, hello there
Degrassians! Are you waiting with bated breath for October 3rd like we are? Are
you scouring various social pages and fan sites THIRSTY for some info on the
Degrassi fall chapter? Well, you might have to wait a little while for that (we
know, we're killin' you, Smalls), but in the meantime we need to enlist you in
a very important conversation. Yesterday, Olivia Scriven, the wonderful actress
who plays Maya, posted a photo to her Instagram seemingly taken in the halls of
the Degrassi set. Did you all see this photo? Did you all have a reaction
something along the lines of...WUUUUT?

It's not everyday that you see a sink chillin' in from of some
lockers, am I right? We're wading through some serious confusion right now, and
we would like to start an open conversation about what in the world this
photo might mean. Sure, we understand that this is just one measly Instagram
shot likely taken on a whim, meant for the disposable interwebs, blah blah
blah. But you guys, we just can't keep this bottled up inside! Walk with us as
we consider these five lingering questions.
DID OLIVIA MOVE IN AT DEGRASSI?
Olivia's caption to this puzzling image reads: "Degrassi is
LIFE." Now, far be it from us to suggest that Degrassi is not indeed our
lifeblood, our bread and butter, our everything. Because it is. BUT is she
perhaps speaking in a more literal sense? Maybe filming runs too long and
Olivia has been forced to make the halls of Degrassi her new home? Or maybe she
is just outstandingly dedicated and embarking on some sort of method acting
endeavor? Seriously, WHY is there a sink (with a toothbrush and what looks like
either a tube of toothpaste or deodorant) in the middle of the hallway?
IS IT AN OPTICAL ILLUSION?
A few technical aspects of the image just don't make sense. For
one, shouldn't we be able to see the photographer in the mirror? It's positioned
high enough that there should be some sort of something its
reflection, right? A hand? Or maybe the top of a head? Heck, we'd even take a
ghost! We're starting to wonder if we're all just pawns in Olivia's
brilliant scheme to fool/creep the heck out of us.
COULD THIS BE PART OF A DEGRASSI NIGHTMARE SEQUENCE?
We all know the "showing up to school naked" nightmare
cliché, but perhaps the Degrassi writers have plans to tread new territory with
dream sequences this fall? I mean, a scene in which someone dreams about
brushing his or her teeth in the hallway could be...embarrassing? Okay, this
one is definitely a stretch, but you'll have to forgive us for considering all
WHY IS THE WATER IN THE CUP YELLOW?
Here's a slightly disturbing head scratcher: If the toothbrush is
indeed being used for practical purposes, why is the water which it soaks
so...murky? Should we be concerned about the Degrassi plumbing? Is the glass
intentionally stained with that rotten yellow hue? Is there some other unmentionable liquid
in there? You'll agree, this is a minor detail we just can't ignore.
DID WE MISS SOME IMPORTANT DEGRASSI REFERENCE?
The only other possibility that could solve this mystery that
Olivia has made an iconic Degrassi reference or inside joke that we've just
completely missed. We really hope we're wrong because we like
to consider ourselves Degrassi experts, but we scoured through the comments
left on Olivia's Instagram and honestly, no one else seems to be as confused as
we are! Are we making total fools of ourselves right now? Oof.
Realistically, there is a strong chance that this photo means
absolutely nothing. But we still think it merits a larger discussion, so we would
LOVE to hear your thoughts. Please, take it away in the comments!
