    This episode is the downfall of Jane's character, which is the explanation of my low rating for this episode. The episode wasn't poor quality, I just hate how Jane is treating Spinner after all he has done for her over the whole time they have been boyfriend and girlfriend - including encouraging her on while she was just starting football at Degrassi; it also was kind of dumb of her not to show any appreciation for Spinner during a speech she spoke in the Season 8 episode, "Lost In Love". But Spinner is grateful that Jane just says that she doesn't want to move in with him instead of breaking up with him. To me, if I were Spinner, I'd be suspicious of the new-kid Declan. Of course, I've watched the episode and seen what Jane and Declan were doing, and Spin wasn't. But I mean, he has to think Jane and Declan might be spending too much time together, somewhat.



    The subplot is KC's adventures of being on the basketball team, and getting frustrated in a game where he has a lot of turnovers and gets frustrated. He lets his anger get the best of him and destroys the locker room during the game. To me, it was kind of stupid. I understand how he thinks he has to prove himself to the older high school students; but everybody has bad games. He shouldn't get all upset over one night. According to Connor, they still have the playoffs to look forward to.moreless

    Awesome episode. In my opinion, "Close to Me" is better than "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'". There was a lot more drama. We totally have a Freshman Take Your Kids To Work Day at my school. I love that day because there's more room to sit in the cafeteria. I loved seeing Manny and Jay in this episode. Yay for Spinner getting new apartment. And yay for Jane being the lead singer of Studz. I love the drama that Jane goes through as she's falling in love with another guy. I love the ending of the episode where it looked like she was breaking up with Spinner, but she didn't. KC B-Plot was very interesting. KC used to be my least favourite character, but Sam Earle who plays KC, really improved as an actor. I am going to predict that KC will be diagnosed with Bipolar this season. I give this episode a 9/10.moreless
