Episode Summary

EDIT

Luckily, she gets a take home one, but with Thanksgiving around the corner, her personal life is just as stressful, and her mound of school work she has to get done isn't helpful, and she continues to have panic attacks.

  • Paige is having panic attacks.

    "Free Fallin'" Part One is an fantastic Degrassi episode. In this episode, Paige is so stressed out at school that she's having panic attacks. The panic attacks are so intense. It was so awesome how she threw her books in the garbage can and lit them on fire because she had the creepiest look on her face. If I remember correctly, Paige comes home and she kisses Alex. I love Palex! I actually enjoyed the Peter and Darcy subplot. I actually like them as a couple, so Peter trying to Darcy to forgive her was nice. I give this episode a 10/10.moreless

    Okay. Paige goes back home with a lot of work to finish in like 2 days. She is really stressed about like...everything! It made me feel kinda bad for her, until she yelled at the very talented and pretty Alex! Love Alex. Really want her back on the show!!!! The whole dinner scene was fun to watch....and the scene when Paige was trying to study and Marco, Dylan, and Alex were making a lot of noise. The whole episode was enjoyable to watch! It made me appreciate Season 6 a lot more and it is the best episdoe of season 6 besides WIFLTBAG part 1 and RTT! I love Season 6 I think it is so underrated especially when compared to some episodes from season 7....Paige and Alex....I miss them together!!! I actually almost cried when I finally realize Alex wasn't going to return for anymore episodes. So sad! This is a great episode that deserves a lot of credit!!! The b plot was good too. Darcy and Peter amazingly get closer! Good EP!....Superb EP!!!moreless
  • Paige's life begins to spiral out of control.

    This was one of the filler episodes of the season. Not good but not so bad. It was interesting to see Paige the girl who kinda had her life on track to just flip out and have panic attacks and have a major personality Crisis. However i did not like her constant complaining and yelling at Alex. That just ticked me off and got on my nerves. She just needed to take a breather. But that was probably the only bad thing about this episode. Everything else kinda all fell into place and made this an entertaning episode. Really kept my attention!moreless
  • A good start to hopefully a great ending to the season.

    Paige is having a hard time at Banting and she is also at a family dinner with the Del Rossi's and Alex. She flips out during the during the dinner and has a spat with Alex. Hopefully Paige will just transfer to a college in Toronto where she can have a support system and feel better in her roots. That might be a good "cushion" when you are making the transition to college.



    BTW -- it was odd that Mrs. Michalchuk didn't address Dylan during the dinner - or him getting to play professional hockey in Switzerland. Is she not proud? I would be!



    The Darcy/Peter was a BORING minor story. They could have done better. Peter is manipulative and Darcy is gullible. No news there.



    Paige's inability to cope leads to her making a turn for the worse -- starting a fire in her dorm. We'll see what happens next week.moreless

    Paige went a little crazy at the end, b ut I can understand what she going though buit I wouldnt go that far. She is trying to be like her mom. That is to much for her to handle. now she knows that her friends are there for her. Because everyone thinks that she is so smart and do great. She thinks that she has to live up to their exspectation. She just needs to stop doing that and do whats gonna get her though her life right now.moreless
