  • Emma finds out the truth about Jordan.

    "Mother and Child Reunion" Part 2 - is a great continuation of the previous episode. It's actually really scary and creepy how this guy pretends to be a teacher and says that Jordan is a student in his class. It's really intense how Emma figures out that there is no Jordan and she runs to the bathroom and locks the door for safety. I'm so glad that Manny figures out that Emma's in danger and she gets Toby and JT to hack Emma's email so they figure out where Emma is meeting Jordan. I love how Mr. Simpson rescues Emma and is ready to beat Jordan up. Anyways, I give this episode a 10/10.moreless
  • Pilot (part 2)

    In this thrilling conclusion to the pilot episode, Emma leaves to meet the man she's been chatting with online, after her mother (Spike) leaves for her reunion. Unfortunately for Emma, she learns that "Jordan" was nowhee close to being who she thought he was. Also feelings come to a boiling point at the reunion. Again, the reunion plot was great, but I missed some of it I didn't get because I've never seen the originals. But Emma's plot was so... scary. Never (or at least in a LONG time) have I truely felt worried for a main character as I did for Emma. Also, the way her friends saved was cool. An excellent conclusion to the pilot episode. 10/10 A+moreless
  • Dangers of Cyber Space

    Emma goes to a hotel to meet Jordan, and when she gets there, she soon realizes that "Jordan" is an adult that wants to hurt her.

    A good episode on the dangers of cyber space. It is a little scary near the middle when Jordan says "Scream and I will tape your mouth shut". I liked how Toby, JT and Manny saved her, and I overall thought this was a nice pilot for a show that would gradually turn into one of my favorites (Which it is now). Overall grade for this episode is of course, a very high A+moreless
  • Emma finally meets the mystery man who she's been e-mailing.

    Okay this was probably one of the most drop-jaw episode ever. Now i know when i reviewed part one of this episode i kept calling it revealing or something like that, but i change it to riveting and provocative! See i miss Degrassi episodes like this! There was always such great writing in each episode and no dull storylines that they dump on us now days. I think this was one of the best season openers. It's just so nerve-wracking watching this episode! You never know what will happen to Emma or what "Jordan" does. It kinda keeps you on the edge of your non theater seat!moreless
  • scary, man.

    Wow, I would be sh!tting myself if I was Emma, I'll tell you that much.

    After that I would consider hitting myself in the head a few times, but that's just me.

    Once again, we all make mistakes.

    This was in fact a very powerful episode, I mean, the way Snake came and effed that dude up was awesome.

    Well, he didn't do much damage, he kind of just scared the crap out of him.

    It was a good "mother and child reunion" as the title indicates.

    I always find that Degrassi does a fairly good job in naming each episode.

    Still. Way too intense for a series opener. Well, maybe it isn't? I think it's just that sort of episode that keeps you wanting to hang on :)moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In the US and in syndication in Canada, there is no cold open, as the opening scene is a recap of part 1.

    • When Emma comes out of the bathroom, if you look behind her, you can see that the little clamp at the top of the door isn't laid flat across the door. But when she tries to open it, it shows her reaching up and having to pull it back, when it was already back in the first place.

    • When Spike calls the police she never says anything about Emma being in a hotel, or even what room she's in, and yet the police miraculously arrive at the exact hotel and the exact room Emma was in.

  • QUOTES (12)

  • NOTES (7)

    • Jake Goldsbie and Melissa McIntyre had previously worked together on "Mattimeo: A Tale of Redwall", where they were both main cast members.

    • This episode marks the first appearances of Aubrey Graham (Jimmy), Shane Kippel (Spinner), Melissa McIntyre (Ashley), and Christina Schmidt (Terri), in the Canadian version only, as this was aired as the season finale in the U.S.

    • Aubrey Graham (Jimmy), and Shane Kippel (Spinner) appear in the Canadian version, but do not have any lines.

    • There are some slight changes between the original Canadian version and the N-Version. The scene with Wheels is not in the N-version, the begining of the conversation in the bathroom between Caitlin and Joey is cut, and the scene with Joey and Caitlin at Joey's job is cut entirely. Since it aired as a two-parter on the N, it also had a previously and opening credits scene which the Canadian version didn't have.

    • Sarah Barrable-Tishauer (Liberty), Daniel Clark (Sean), and Lauren Collins (Paige), do not appear in this episode. In the US version Aubrey Graham (Jimmy), and Shane Kippel (Spinner), also do not appear as their scenes are cut entirely.

    • The poster The-N censors reads 'The Pill is Not Enough...'

    • "Mother and Child Reunion" (2) ranks 63 for Fights and 45 for Shocks and Revelations in the Degrassi Crash Course.
