  • Everyone at Degrassi is getting sick, but could Manny be more than just sick.

    "Accidents Will Happen" part 1 is an awesome Degrassi episode. I love Manny's character development from seasons 1 to 3. In Seasons 1 and 2, she was just this cute, innocent girl. But in season 3, she didn't want to be just cute and innocent, she wanted to be hot and sexy. I love this episode because this is Manny's first serious storyline on the show. Everyone at Degrassi is getting sick and coming down with the flu. Manny gets sick, but it's not because she has the flu. It's actually kind of sad that Manny went for so long without her period and she didn't even think to go to the doctor. Anyways, I love the end of the episode with the possibility of Manny being pregnant. I give this episode a 10/10.moreless
  • Season 3, Episode 14.

    Wow. This episode was tense. Everyone is out sick with the flu, and Manny is getting sick. However, she gives Hazel a tampon and tells her and Emma how she hasn't used her tampons in forever, and Emma becomes concerned. Manny realizes she might actually be pregnant with Craig's baby. Craig previously cheated on her with Ashley, and did the same to Ashley with her at the same time. Manny hates Craig, as she made very clear. "Paige, how do I know if a guy used a condom?" "Were you there, hun?" Great episode! Ms. Haztilakos reminds me of Deb Scott on OTH. 10/10.moreless
  • This episode is about Manny getting ready for the upcoming school gymnastics meet. Everyone is counting on her but all of a sudden she gets sick. Then she realizes it's more than the flu that's going around.moreless

    I loooove this episode because it is sooo exciting! I mean I wish they would have played it on The N first but things come up. By showing it three years later, more viewers are more confused than ever. Anyway, the fact that Craig actually stayed by Manny's side when she was going through it means he was being pretty responsible. But I hated how Ashely outed them to the WHOLE school. Even though I didn't like how Manny dealt with the pregnancy. I mean I wish she could have kept the baby though. They would have made really great parents. I have been a fan of Cranny for as long as they first hooked up. Which I might add, was way before Craig started going out with Ashely. Every fan has their own different opinion about this infamous episode.moreless
  • Students have been out sick with the flu so when manny begins to get sick its the sickness thats been spreading right?! wrong! Manny soon finds out that these are signs of pregnancy and she has to find the truth out and it comes out positive...moreless

    This episode was so real it was almost hard to watch the writing was so good and when i found out that she was pregnant i was "is this really happening" it was really sad when she tried to tell craig but he wasnt taking it as serious as she was until part 2 and another thing was when manny asked paige to know if a guy used protection paige goes "ask questions first get naked later" that was so funny and i was trying not to laugh but i couldnt help myself! anyways this was another good degrassi episode!moreless
  • This episode is about Manny and etc. getting ready for a gymnastics meet. But then a bad case of the flu starts spreading but when Manny starts feeling sick she begins to think it's not the flu or her nerves.moreless

    I absolutely LOVE this episode! I just hate that they didn't let the U.S. see this episode when it first aired instead of three years later. I like this episode but I think it would have gotten a lot more acclaim if they would have shown it on the n when it was scheduled to air. So many of the U.S viewers are confused by the hints dropped in later episodes. Like in the episode where Emma and Jay go to the ravine, where Manny tells Emma that she is better than what she is doing. Emma responds by saying "At least I'm not going out and getting pregnant." Emma looks her up and down. This particular conversation baffled many U.S. viewers. Anyway, I liked that my favorite character is faced with this MAJOR decision. I also liked that Craig stood by her after learning that she was carrying his baby. But I did not like when Ashley was the bitter ex-girlfriend and told most of the whole school that Manny was pregnant. Besides I like Manny and Craig together. They make a cute couple. I just didn't like Ellie and Craig together. They were a badly matched couple. Even though I did not agree with her decision, I still consider Manny as my favorite character. I just hate when people call her a slut and etc. They just call her that because she obviously went after what she wanted, which was Craig. She NEVER cheated on Craig or her other boyfriends. This episode should be named as the "Most Controversial Episode Ever". I mean many viewers had many different things to say about Manny's decision about her pregnancy.moreless
