  • Danny and Derek ask a girl they both really like to their partners for a school assingment. Snake is suspended from teaching at school. Emma and Damian start dating.

    This was another great episode of Degrassi. It's one of th better ones in season 7. I like storylines of Derek and Danny because you don't really see much episodes about them. Derek and Danny are fighting over a girl. They have a project to do, so they ask her to be their partner. I knew they were going to be fighting over a girl. Anyways that store manager was racist. She didn't trust Danny at all. And that girl didn't believe Danny at all. I am so glad Derek made that video. He did the right thing. Emma is so crazy in love with Damian. She started acting like a fool but it's a cool. They are going out now. She has the cutest dog ever too. Snake can't teach at the school anymore because of what Darcy said. He can teach there when they get everything organized. There was a lot of drama in this episode so I'm going to give it a 10/10.moreless
  • got my mind set on you

    derek and danny fight over the same girl, rachel, in a presentation for a class they are doing. but will their friendship be strained when it is obvious rachel likes danny and not derek? emma is tired of n ot being able to do much because of what has happened to snake.

    good episode, the sub plot was kind of boring but the main one was really good i thought, and so because of this my overall grade for this episode is an A+, albeit a bit weaker than other A+ episodes, i think anyways. Good episode though, i thinkmoreless
  • Season 7, Episode 15.

    Derek, Danny, and Peter are working on a video assignment with a Lakehurt transfer student named Rachel. However, Danny and Derek both develop feelings for Rachel. When Danny gets the girl, Derek plans a nasty revenge. Meanwhile, Snake is still suspended because of Darcy's lies, and Emma feels like a prisoner while trying to adapt to the changes.

    I liked this episode, but it was overall pointless. It was enjoyable, though. I think Damian is great to Emma, but their romance is pointless. I liked when he said she was "going Nascar." LMAO. But the main plot, which went to Derek and Danny, wasn't bad at all, though. Pointless, but pretty realistic and very entertaining.moreless
  • I love the show, but DANG, was this episode terrible.

    First with the A-Plot. Danny and Derek, two carecters I already could care less about, do a 'how to' video project, with peter, and this other girl who comes out of nowhere. Than when they go to get foot, Derek says, (about Rachel) "she's been eying me like a fat guy eyes a rack of ribs". This is the stupidest line I've ever heard, ever in the history of Degrassi. She ends up making out with Danny which makes Derek jealous. Because Derek is so funny he decides to but some crochless panties in Danny's backpack. This does not amuse. The racist lady at the store goes all freaky on Danny because he's black, and calls security. He runs away. End of the ridiculously dumb A-plot. Oh, and Derek makes a video about how she is such a jerk. It's super lame.

    A-Plot Grade: F- 0%

    The b plot is about Emma. Oh boy. Recipie for the worst episode ever. She is all pissed because her dad is accused of sexual harassment. Than she gets a dog. Damien doesn't like it. Shocker.

    B-Plot Grade: D 65%

    Final Grade: F

    Again, love the show, but this one was bad, REALLY bad.moreless
  • Worst episode of Season 7.

    I didn't really like this episode because Danny & Derek had the main plot. It just was not Degrassi-material. I liked how they dealed with racism but why did they have to do it with Danny. I liked the B plot, Emma dealing with the precautions of a falsely-accused father. Trying to live a normal life was good. But I didn't see how Damien fit in to all of it. This episode could of been so much better. Because racism & dealing with a not normal life plots are powerful & have a lot of potential. I did like how it had a happy ending though :).moreless
