  • Lucas wants back in Mia's life.

    "Sweet Child O' Mine" is a good Degrassi episode. Just for this episode, I like the character Mia. Lucas wants to be in both Mia and Isabella's life, but he has to earn Mia's trust. He was a big jerk when Mia was dancing with that guy and he interrupts them telling the guy she's a teen mother. I like this episode more for the subplot. Manny wants to meet Jay's parents and he lies says they live in Malta, so she sell the engagement ring to buy tickets to go to Malta. Well, Jay's mother's actually died and the ring used to belong to her. It's actually heartbreaking. I give this episode a 8/10.moreless
  • Season 7, Episode 16.

    Mia is ecstatic after making Spirit Squad. A new boys expresses an interest in her, and so does Lucas, Isabella's father. She pushes him away at first, but reconsiders her decision after realizing she could use the help and the money. Meanwhile, Manny is excited about her real engagement, and learns her ring is worth $5000. She is eager to meet Jay's parents, so she sells the ring in order to buy tickets to Malta, where he said his parents lived.

    I liked this episode. The storylines were pretty cool, and I think LUCAS IS HOT! Just my opinion. I liked the Jay/Manny plot, though. That was pretty cool yet slightly funny. Manny is looking hot this season and it is nice to see her engaged. We first saw her in 7th grade and it's amazing how much things change in five years. Good episode.moreless
  • Mia finds her baby daddy!

    I really liked this episode because Mia's baby daddy is revealed. I am so surprised it is Lucas. His bullying ways are not very good for someone who has a kid. Holly J seemed really nice in this episode to Mia. I liked that. She's amazing when she is nice. I liked how Liberty gave Mia that pep-talk cause she went through it, I thought that was cute. I also liked how Lucas gave his daughter the bike. It was really nice of him to be a part of his daughter's life. A really good episode, & we can look from it.moreless
  • Mia and Lucas in character development and the best filler episode in Degrassi history.

    Mia has problems when Lucas, her baby's daddy, starts basically stalking her and wants to get back together with her. But I bet he doesn't want to take care of Izzy...though he does just to impress Mia for a while. Mia falls for some blonde surfer dude who looks like Taylor Handely's lil brother, but he doesn't last long. Now there is a bunch of Mia making Lucas take care of Izzy. This is by far the best Degrassi filler episode ever. I loved when Lucas gave Izzy the lil motorcycle and kissed her on the was a sweet moment. B plot was lame more Jay and Manny. Manny becomes dumb in this episode and believes Jay that his parents live in Malta....WTF! Good filler A plotmoreless
  • Mia realises that maybe she cant do everthing on her own, and Manny and Jay grow as a couple.

    This was a good episode, it showed how hard it is to be a single parent at the age of sixteen. And how lying will get you no where. Mia trys to be a normal kid, but as you know her daughter isabella made that a little bit difficult. Mia has to make all of her decisions with her child in mind. And she was a little reluctant with allowing Lucas (Isabellas father) into the picture. But towards the end she starts realising that with another set of hands and a little more cash would be helpful, so she decides to give him a chance. And Jay still isnt truthful with Manny, whens he gonna get it in his head, lyings never good!!! But they really grew as a couple towards the end, Jay was truthful with Manny and she forgave him. I think that Manny is really good for Jay, we get to see a side of him that he never really showed before.moreless
