"How Soon Is Now?" is an excellent and sort of intense Degrassi episode. Previously, Paige was raped by Dean. And she really just wanted to move on with her life. In this episode, Dean comes back. It was so intense the emotions Paige was having in this episode. I love how eventually she told Spinner and he almost beat Dean up. My favourite scene in this episode is Paige telling JT that Dean raped her, and JT goes to into gym and tries to beat up Dean. I love the end of this episode when Paige decides that she was report him.
Lauren collins, once again, did an excellent job in this episode. Rape is hard to get over and she shows that in this episode. I love the JT and Paige friendship and the interaction in this episode. I love how JT went after Dean and I also like how Spinner went after Dean too. this is one of my favorite episodes of the entire series. I think Laurendid an excellent job portraying a girl who was raped. I wouldn't know from experience because I'm a guy, but I know a girl who went through something very similar. It's hard and I think Paige made the right decision to go after Dean.
Paige has been seeing a guidance counselor for six months and has finally stopped blaming herself for the rape. But she soon learns that Dean is returning with Bardell for a basketball game. Paige decides not to show up to cheer for the game. JT comes outside and asks her what is wrong and she tells him what happened. JT goes back inside and pushes Dean around trying to beat him up. Dean is suspended from the game and JT is sent to the principal's office. Soon Paige tells Spinner what happened and he follows Dean outside and pushes him against the school bus but Dean walk to the bus. Paige tells him straight out that she is coming after him: for real.
I think that once again Lauren Collins did an amazing job in this episode. She was so convincing and it was great to see her have to face this again. It just goes to show that no matter how big the problem, something like rape will come back to haunt you until you fully learn how to deal with it and move on with your life. I love how great Spinner nad JT are to Paige; they know something is wrong and they will stop at nothing to protect her. That is just awesome!
