Degrassi has become with the creature with two faces. That means that there is a really good plot, however there is a really bad plot lurking around in the same episode. You can only predict what the good plot was. Of course it was Riley & Peter's plot. The episode where the viewers found out that Riley was in the closet, and had a crush on Peter. Not exactly groundbreaking, but it is interesting. Now I don't know if everyone just absolutely dismissed the new characters come season eight, but some characters you just know have potential to be the show runners of the series. And that's what I'm sure every fan saw in Riley, especially in this episode. The moment he was rejected by Peter after the kiss, you couldn't help but feel bad for him.
Sure Degrassi has gone down this route before, but they always manage to do it differently. Like Marco with his homophobic parents or something as unexpected Alex kissing Paige, but now we have someone with an anger problem, and that could only mean trouble, which is promising. Now lets talk about the ugly. I know this plot hasn't really been done before, but I'm sure there was a reason for that. Alli & Clare with a sex toy? Jane not being completely grossed out? I know I wouldn't have picked a sex toy up off the bathroom floor even if it rolled over to my stall. By the end, it just felt way too after school special for me, and telling off Holly J? Not to mention it was the worst comeback you can think of, but she still managed to get offended. The mention of Darcy was possibly the only memorable thing about this plot. So overall a really great plot with potential to a very filler plot with absolutely no potential. Yup, that's Degrassi Season 8 for ya.
