Not to lay it on too thick, but with the beginning of the school year in DegrassiÂ time, everyone’s looking for new beginnings. Turned on by their secret step-sibling dating, ClareÂ has decided she wants to have sex with Jake… but not until she’s sureÂ they’re emotionally ready. Fresh out of rehab,Â FionaÂ is a super-senior hoping to ingratiate herself with the popular juniors-turned-seniors so that she’ll finish her time at Degrassi without a scandal. But that means she’s leaving her artsy friends EliÂ and ImogenÂ behind.
Then there are the “niners,” the new freshmen: Katie‘s little sister Maya, who wanted to go to an arts school but had to settle for Degrassi High; former beauty pageant queen ToriÂ and her gay best friend Tristan, who have some mysterious problem with hottie ZigÂ from their junior high.
So, plenty happened last night! There was a senior prank gone wrong, a couple of mysterious character histories hinted at, and lots of fresh blood to get to know this season. The schedule’s a little wonky: We get “Underneath It All, Part 2″ this Friday, then the rest of the season starts up on Fridays. So, look for our next recap on Saturday morning. For now, check out our recap in the gallery below!
