Last night was seriously the hottest episode of Degrassi EVER. It had everything: drama, sex, cheating, lying, tears, joy, graduation! So hot. Beware...the following is a hardcore recap of the episode:

Ok so first, the show opens with Spinner telling Marco he made out with Paige the night before. Spin and D'Arcy broke up the same night. Then, D'Arcy walks in and tells Spinner she wants to get back together and tells him to think about it.

Later that night, D'Arcy goes to the coffee house where Spin works and they kiss and make up and get back together - and put back the Irish love rings they had taken off when they broke up. D'Arcy says she has to go pack for Bible Camp but to call her later so they celebrate their reunion with good clean Bible fun.

Instead, Spinner goes to Paige's house and Paige busts out their old yearbooks from when they were a couple. They get in a nostalgic mood and start going at it...the next day Spinner texts Marco the truth: he and Paige had sex.

Spin avoids D'Arcy all day and lies to her telling her he was trying to set up some going away present for her, and goes to find Paige. He tells her he wants to get back together and she's like "you can't be serious. we're both moving on". Spinner feels used for his manly body. He then decides to go find D'Arcy, who is all excited about her present. Spin tells her the guy who was supposed to set up this "present" texted him and told him he couldn't do it and goes to get them some drinks. D'Arcy wants to know what the present was so she looks through his texts only to find that there was no present...unless you count fucking Paige as a present!

Anyway D'Arcy takes off in a huff. The next day is graduation day. And it's a hot graduation day! First of all, Ashley comes back from London! She is wearing this ridiculous Britney Spears circa 1999 hat, but otherwise looks hot! She and Jimmy make nice and catch up on their friendship. Ashley is surprised to see that Ellie and Jimmy are good friends, and Jimmy admits he wants to be more than friends but won't admit it because girls don't like guys in wheelchairs. Whatev! Ellie tells Ashley she is crushing on someone but doesn't say who, so Ashley assumes it's Jimmy and tells him to try...so he asks Ellie out and she says no...he's not the guy she's crushing on. She never says who it is though!? It was so confusing because I totally thought Ellie DID want Jimmy! So weird.

THEN...Ashley catches up with Jimmy and says she's sorry, she thought Ellie liked him...and he was all "NO! GIRLS DON'T LIKE WHEELCHAIRS" and Ashley bends down and kisses him. It was so cute! If you remember, Jimmy and Ashley dated way back when the show first started and Jimmy was still walking.

THEN...ok so the graduation ceremony starts and Spinner and Jimmy are on the sidelines..they're not graduating because of the whole shooting incident - Spinner was suspended and Jimmy was in physio - so they're both held back a year. All year Jimmy has refused to talk to Spin and picked fights with him but during graduation, he makes nice with Spinner and they hug and vow to be friends again. I seriously started crying at this part! It was hot!

THEN...the graduates go outside and WHO walks up but Craig! He's back from Vancouver - recording his solo album - to be with his friends and he surprises Manny and everyone when he walks up with his guitar. This part was sweet too because Craig hadn't seen Ashley since she unceremoniously dumped him through Ellie, but he looks over at her and smiles, and she smiles back, and Ellie smiles, and Jimmy smiles, and everyone smiles. It's just the most heartwarming/heartbreaking part! Everyone has had all these crazy dramas, but they all love each other. SO HOT.

Yes, I'm a huge nerd, but this was my favourite episode yet. Please keep coming back Degrassi!
