  • Erica meets Blaine, who is in grade 11 and has a car. As the relationship progresses, so do Heather's worries. She blows up when they are kissing at the dance. Scooter and Tessa go to the dance together. Amy and Allison fight over Snake.

    I totally understand Heather's feelings, in not wanting to see another pregnancy and abortion. And the relationship does go to deep kissing quite fast; not much else is it based on. I would worry too. It's good, though, to remember that when an abortion happens, it is not easily forgotten. And Erica learning how she feels; good suggestion in Heather talking to the counsellor as well. We see no follow-up on that. Alexa got on my nerves gushing over Erica and Blaine, but probably she didn't neglect Simon this time. Obviously Lucy is still with Clutch, no follow-up there either. Bart teaching Scooter how to dance, that was priceless. And then counting while dancing with Tessa. Makes for an awkward moment, but it looks like they're growing up; like they just really saw what adolescent hormones are all about. And they seem to handle it well, though Tessa and Scooter aren't seen together again after this. The part with Amy and Allison, it's both painful and funny. Especially that they each have so much of each other's clothes, and know each other's wardrobes almost as well as their own. And in the bathroom, there's always the wondering what would happen if someone hadn't come in right then.
  • Erica has a new boyfriend and Heather's worried she'll make the same mistake.


    "Natural Attraction" is a great Degrassi High episode. In this episode, Erica has a new boyfriend, and Heather's upset that Erica will go too far again. I'm glad that Erica has moved on from getting an abortion. I have mixed feelings about the Heather plot. I mean, I understand where Heather's coming from, but at the same time, she should put more trust in Erica. But I am glad that we get to see how Heather still dealing with Erica getting abortion and that she should get counselling. Amy and Alison's plot was entertaining and makes this episode worth watching. It was cute Bart teaching Scooter to dance. I give this episode a 8.5/10.
