This week, Degrassi took us on a roller coaster of emotion. We laughed, we cried, and we wondered where Imogen got her cute pink bra. And even though "Cannonball" only included two featured musical selections, they certainly added to the sexy and surprising episode.
First, Jenna showed off her pipes and her strumming skills with an original entitled Push Me Away while contemplating the complicated, confusing parts of her relationship with Connor. Then, Adam's risky car ride was intensified by Heather Green's "Day I Was Born." We know you were on the edge of your seats!
Check out this new addition to the Degrassi playlist on TeenNick's Spotify, where you can jam to some of the best songs of this season so far!
And if you can stand to watch it again, check out "Day I Was Born" in this episode's chilling cliffhanger!

Loyal Degrassians, did you tune in to last night's all new episode? "Cannonball" overflowed with OMG moments and, by the end, the drama came to a screeching halt. Literally. If you missed out last night, watch the full episode online because, yep, you guessed it, we've got spoilers below!
DON'T SAY I NEVER DID ANYTHING FOR YOU
Maya was really worried that Tristan wandered off into Paris alone after their falling out, so she enlisted Winston to help her find him. Miles looked pretty bummed, though, when Maya brisked right by him. I think maybe, just maybe, he actually wanted to help her (read: he definitely did). Winston didn't turn out to be much help, and he couldn't deal with Maya's "girl tears," so Maya eventually decided she needed Miles' expertise. And with his help, she found Tristan in no time. I think Miles scored a few points this episode with this act of kindness, and dare I say there was a total Mayales moment under the umbrella? I saw it. You saw it. We all saw it. Finally, Maya and Tristan made up and, for the 23127836182736th time, vowed to not let a boy come between their friendship. But it remains to be seen what will happen between Maya and Miles! Bets, anyone?
ENCHANT� OR ENCHAN-TASTELESS?
Recently single and still getting over her relationship-ending conversation with Connor, Jenna was looking for a girls' night with her pal, Alli. But Alli didn't want to cancel her plans with Leo, and tried to turn her quality time with Jenna into a double date with Leo's very, very available friend. After a few too many attempts by the flirty stranger to hand feed Jenna, she got up and left. *Sigh* It seems like Alli's always getting herself into situations like this, where she goes against her better judgment, upsets a friend, and has to troubleshoot her way out of it. But alas, troubleshoot she did and she got Connor and Jenna to sit down and work out their issues. Thankfully, they were able to have a mature conversation about sex and then make out. I mean make up. They made up. And then they made out.
IT CAN'T BE...OVER.
On the flipside, Becky and Adam are not doing well. Becky returned the apology roses that Adam sent her and cut them up, leaving nothing but pieces of stems and petals. Dallas suggested that Adam rebound with Imogen, and even though Adam initially resisted, he somehow found himself in the back of a van with shirtless Imogen, who challenged him to a, well, tongue wrestling match. (WHY, Adam, WHY?????) Devastated about his less-than-stellar choices, Adam rushed out of the campground to reconcile with Becky. And in a flurry to get in touch with her, he started texting while driving...which triggered the moment that might shatter the world of Degrassi forever. Crash.
What did you all think of this episode? We're still recovering from that ending! The stakes are high for next week, so hold tight and let us know your thoughts in the comments!

Over the years, we've watched Adam Torres grow more confident, more flirtatious, and more self-assured. But, perhaps most importantly, we've also watched him experiment with his hair. This handsome devil has tried it all, and we think it's about time to highlight some of Adam's best looks.
We all remember when a young and insecure Adam Torres rocked the beanie/visor combo in the halls of Degrassi. It's hard to say whether we miss this look or were thrilled to see it go.
The Side-Part Swoon
Adam sure cleans up nice! In an attempt to win Fiona's heart, Adam got a fresh cut and became one with the comb.
I'd CAP That
Looks like Adam has graduated from the beanie to the big boy baseball cap! And as it turns out, this boy is quite the ladies man.
Which Torres hairstyle is your fave?? Let us know below!

Check out the first look of "Cannonball" and catch the full episode when it airs this Thursday at 9PM ET on TeenNick!

It's hard to believe that with every new episode of Degrassi we inch closer and closer to the summer's end. The summer season, both on-screen and in our real life (as much as we'd like to consider Degrassi real life), is moving with breakneck speed, but the excitement and tension continues to stack like an NFL pileup!
As always, if you haven't seen the new episode, watch it here,because we'll spoil you worse than Vernon and Petunia!
Adam and Becky's jealousy issues emerged in the season premiere, but this week it all came to a head when Adam, after seeing a few pictures of Becky and shirtless-Bible-study-chauffeur Todd, started to suspect the worst. Sure, it's dangerously easy to misinterpret a photo on the Internet, but there is nary a state of jealousy in which it is OK to hack into someone's account, pose as them, and write a kiss-off message to an individual who didn't technically do anything wrong. Right? Oh man, Adam, what were you thinking? Your plan completely skirted the real issue and boasted a 100% probability of getting back to Becky. I mean, far be it from us to suggest that Becky was in the right by posting those semi-suggestive photos with Todd, but we sure hope you can bounce back from this one.
We've been waiting for a few weeks now to see where Alli and Leo's relationship will go. This episode, Alli started to suspect her feelings for Leo were moving too fast, and she took extra precautions to ensure she wouldn't go too far. Enter: date crashers, Jenna and Connor, who were enlisted to keep the, erm, desire to a minimum. Generally confused by the surprise guests, Leo unknowingly started to talk about intimacy, and Connor said something about being repulsed by sex. An awkward moment ensued, and it seemed as though Asperger's got the best of Connor's good intentions. Thankfully, though, all ended well for Alli and Leo as they whispered sweet nothings in French and shared a pinky swear, the ultimate romantic vow.
THE TRISTZOMAYALES SAGA
It's no secret that half of this episode showed Miles and Zoe lockin' lips, but in what universe is it acceptable to be making out in a classroom? I know everyone is a little more affectionate in Europe, but puh-lease! The Miles/Zoe incessant make-out session started to really upset Tristan, and when Maya tried to speak up for him, she in turn embarrassed and really upset him. Maya seemed genuinely remorseful, but her feelings for Miles (and potentially Miles' feelings for her) still seem questionable, as much as Maya may never want to reveal them for Tristan's sake. Her slip of the tongue didn't seem an irreparable infraction against Tristan, but we all know how love can cloud reason. Maybe he just needs time?
Now it's time to hear from you! What did you all think of last night's episode? The comment section is ready and waiting!

Really, it's something we should be used to by now, but don't you think that last night's episode ran the gamut of feels? We saw everything from elation to devastation, and after taking a beat to process, it's time to break it all down. If you haven't seen the episode yet, watch it online, because you only get one spoiler warning! And that was it!
Clare's MRI results marked a MONDO triumph this episode. You know, the smiley-face-with-a-single tear kind of triumph :`) When Clare's mom gave the good news, it was as if a giant weight had been lifted, and it felt like the first time Clare was truly happy the entire season! But remember that time Clare decided to concoct a hospital escape plan with Drew? Yeah, probably won't file that one under "Best Ideas Clare's Ever Had." She deserved that flicker of normalcy, but at the very moment Clare ripped away the medical wiring and stepped out of her hospital gown, she put her health in serious jeopardy. Dare we forget the camper who coughed in her face? Or the fact that she upchucked in the middle of the Degrassi camp obstacle course? She's not in the clear, and I sure hope her momentary lapse doesn't have lasting effects.
YOU WIN SOME, YOU LOUVRE SOME
We've seen Alli make questionable decisions because of boys before, and this episode saw her almost repeating the same mistake. After neglecting to visit the Louvre (and instead visiting the Leo), Alli nearly flunked her French presentation. She was lucky enough to have Madame grant her a make-up assignment, but with a planned date getting in the way AGAIN (girl, your timing is impeccable!), she hoped her romantic evening might include an ever-so convenient trip to the museum. Well, Leo thought Alli was taking advantage of him for homework, and Alli realized it was high-time she think about balancing her Parisian adventures with her academic obligations. Lucky for her, though, Leo is some kind of wonderful and they swiftly made up (not out...at least not yet)! Off to the Louvre, for REAL!
OH MY LADY GAGA
Last episode, Tristan entered the friend zone with Miles. At the time, it wasn't immediately clear (though one could make an educated guess) that Trist was interested in Miles as more than friends. But this episode, not only did Tristan attempt to kiss Miles (who politely did not reciprocate), but he found Zoe playing, er, "sit on Santa's lap" with Miles. And until this moment, it seemed like Tristan really thought he had a shot. It remains to be seen exactly what Miles Hollingsworth III wants, but one thing's for sure, he is in high demand, y'all.
Alright, it's time for us to sign-off and time for you to sound off! In the comments!
