  • Degrassi: "In the Cold, Cold Night, pt. 2" Recap

    Posted on 05/18/2012 by Lisa

    Did the Frostival live up to your expectations? Let's talk it over from the beginning.

    Warning: SPOILERS BELOW. (If you haven't seen the episode yet, watch it here.)

    Eli and Clare

    I understand why Clare was nervous about having lunch with Eli, but I loved when Connor said "I hate when people do things for my own good." I DO TOO, Connor! I'm glad Clare decided to go have lunch with him anyway, even if it didn't work out all that well for Eli's pants. At least we finally go to hear him say the line "Do you think we could ever pick up where we left off?"

    I miss the Marisol from a few episodes back who cared about treating other people with love and respect.


    I know a thirteen year old is too young to audition for an indie band at a bar, but I reeeeeally want Maya to find a way to show off her musical skills. (Oooh, random thought -- do you think she'd ever start a new Degrassi band? I love Degrassi bands, especially when they're full of girls... I still have fond memories of Paige Michalchuck and the Sex Kittens!)

    Poor Simpson. I felt bad for him when Fiona told him all he cared about was "smothering dreams." So much violent stuff has happened on his watch, and he's just trying to keep the kids safe. But still... the Frostival must go on, right?

    I laughed out loud at this exchange:

    Fiona: Do you have any idea how many times I've packed these suitcases?
    Holly J: Once?
    Fiona: Yeah. These are new.

    And then a moment later, Imogen showed up, Fiona told her the truth about everything, and Imogen called her a quitter. Sadness. :(

    Imogen and Fiona

    I get that Fiona doesn't want to leave Degrassi, but now that she's sold most of her clothes and she doesn't have her parents' money, how exactly will that work? Do you think she'll find a way to stay? Will this thing with Imogen work out? I loved their moment on the Ferris Wheel. (Rewatch that scene here!) "It's not the heights I'm scared of." *sigh*

    Clare and Eli

    Eli + Clare + cotton candy = I start to cry. Did anybody else cry at that last scene? I don't even think of myself as an Eclare fan necessarily... I just believe in love and possibilities, and I feel like this episode ended in a way that is absolutely bursting with possibility!

    p.s. I am dying to read that old-timey newspaper. Even Jenna's music review, as rewritten by Eli.

    p.p.s. We'll talk more about the summer promo later, but "Welcome to Degrassi."?!?? Hell yeah! Is it summer yet?
