Well I’m back!! I know that I said that it was going to be a short break, but man, I got really lazy and didn’t want to do shit Degrassi related. But here I am again.
Pre-Credit Intro: We open on a photo booth where Marco is having a glamour shoot going on where he’s trying to look fierce. He seems to get upset though when Dylan comes through the curtain and gives him a peck on the cheek. We find out right away why he’s upset. His mom works at what looks is Walgreens or what the Canadian equivalent is. Come on my Canadian peeps. I know you’re going to school me on what store it is. Anyways. She asks to see his shots because Marco’s cheap ass is going to use them for posters to run for student body president. She thinks that the machine ripped him off, little does she know that he tore off the gay smooch. Dylan is obviously pissed because Marco hasn’t come out to his parents yet. Goddamn Dylan try to be understanding that his immigrant parents might have a problem because they’re from the old country.
The next day Marco is upset because Paige mentions that she talked to Dylan and Dylan was ignoring him. As they’re talking Paige almost trips on Alex’s legs. Alex all full of attitude tells her to watch where she’s walking. Paige being Paige pretty much calls Alex dog shit and that she’s a loser who no one at the school likes. You can tell it hurt Alex to hear that. I guess Paige forgot the lesson that Dean taught her when you sass someone too much.
In the next scene Emma is admiring herself in the mirror and Chris comes along and says something that I can’t understand. Emma mentions that she’s sorry that they broke up during the Summer. Chris just raps that maybe they can get some shakes some time and he glides to his next class.
Alex see’s Marco and says, “Hey gay kid.” Marco is instantly offended and tells her bitch ass that he doesn’t respond to shitty people as herself. She then asks him what the issues are for the election. Marco not being in the mood tells her to fuck off and to ask questions at the assembly. That’s when Snake comes uncomfortably close and tells Marco that Alex is also running for President. So yeah, I’m going there, Alex is the Trump of that election.
So I guess this is still the same subplot, Liberty see’s Chris sitting at a bench and right away we can tell that she has a thing for him and his acid washed outfit. Liberty showing how lame she is tells Chris that maybe they can go to a record shop to listen to some hip hop. But you can tell that she doesn’t like that shit at all. Can I just take a moment to say that someone recently told me in the comments section that Liberty is actually a beloved character in the fan community. I was all, no fucking way! I just can’t even begin to believe that people actually love Liberty that much. She’s easily one of the most annoying characters in the history of the show.
In the cafeteria everyone is talking about Alex running for president. Marco though is blowing it off because he’s more concerned about Dylan whining about Marco coming out to his parents. Uh oh, later on on the phone Dylan pretty much breaks up with Marco.
In class, Emma is jealous of Liberty having a crush on Chris. I don’t know why Emma cares though. I guess she’s just that catty. By the way, I love the lame hip hop sounding music that plays during this scene.
We cut to Marco’s house where his dad Stereotype is way too excited about Marco winning the election. Funny how you can tell that Marco’s mom knows that her son is gay, but his dad is completely clueless to the fact that Marco is gay to the 10th power. Up in his room Marco full of tears comes out to his mom finally. She starts to cry, but shit, she already knew that. Probably since he was a little boy.
At Degrassi, Marco tells Paige that he came out to his mom. Paige is happy for him, but he’s afraid that she doesn’t love him anymore. Marco can’t think about it too long though because Alex is being a shithead and tearing down all of his posters. Marco now pissed tells her that no one is going to vote for her because she’s such a terrible person and is to as close as we can get in Degrassi to being ghetto. To that she pretty much tells him that she’s going to out him to the entire school. I don’t know why Marco should get scared for, the whole school should know since it’s so obvious that he’s gay.
In gym class Emma comes next to Chris to stretch out wearing a hootchie outfit. She really learned her lessons well from Manny. She starts to flirt with him and Chris all annoyed tells her not to tease him because he obviously likes the way her ass looks in those little booty shorts she has on. Emma mentions that she wants to get back together with him and on purpose makes plans to go out with him the exact day and time that Liberty was supposed to go with him. Oh Emma, that was a real bitch move.
After school Manny wants to lend Emma a skirt because she says that she loves her legs and it’ll make Chris want her even more. Emma then tells her that she has no intention of getting back with Chris. She’s not even jealous, she just hates the fact that he would be going with Liberty of all people. I love how Manny, Degrassi’s school mattress is upset to hear about this. But I don’t blame Emma one bit. Anyone would be humiliated to see their ex with Liberty.
Back at his house, Marco is trying his hardest to not have his parents there the next day because he’s mortified at the thought of that bitch Alex outing him out to everyone. Especially his dad. Just then Stereotype walks in and that’s when Marco tells him that he’s dropping out of the election. Stereotype then goes on to say how proud of him he is and not to drop out because he’ll be less proud. Geesh. Marco upset goes to cry with his momma.
The next day Emma tries to talk to Liberty and that’s when Liberty says to her, “You’re dead to me.” Turns out that fucking Manny played Judas’s and told Liberty about Emma being petty and humiliated at the thought that Liberty was going out with an ex of hers. Emma tries to be nice and says that it was just hard to let her mumble mouth ex boyfriend go with such a dweebette like Liberty. That’s when Liberty says, “It’s easy letting you go, straight to hell.” Big loss, it’s not like Emma was really her friend anyways. Or that she had much chance of getting with Chris, I think he was just being nice.
Anyways, enough with that bullshit. It’s finally time for the great debate. But before that Alex admits to Jay that she’s so nervous that it feels like she wants to throw up. Jay being the typical lousy asshole boyfriend can’t believe that she’s actually serious about running. She can’t answer though because that’s when Marco comes up to her and asks her if she’s really going to out him in front of everyone. She pretty much says yes and that’s when Marco says that if she really wants to win, she’ll take the hide road and not go that route because she actually does have a chance to win. You can tell that that spoke to her.
At the assembly Alex is giving a really angry speech about how she’s an outsider and she hates all the popular kids who have all the fun at school by having actual money to go on trips or to dances. Her big thing is to do away with all that bullshit and that things won’t be like last year. Just as she’s about to use her catch phrase of, “Are you going to vote for the freak or the queer?” She hesitates and instead calls Marco a pretty boy. I guess Alex is a decent Human being after all.
Finally it’s Marco’s turn. Marco begins by saying that Alex is right about the school being split, but that she’s wrong about it being the presidents job to rep the freaks. At least I think that’s what he says, it makes no sense to me. Just then Jay decides to be a dick head and calls him a queer. Raditch tells Jay that he’ll see Jay in his office for a caning. Lucky for Marco, his dad is too stupid to know what queer means. Paige trying to be supportive tells him to continue. Marco then promises to bring Degrassi together because he loves the school.
Later on Liberty in no spectacular way just simply announces on the TV that Marco won the election. Marco being the bigger man tells Alex that he get’s to pick his vice president and that he’s choosing her for the job.
The episode ends with Dylan taking Marco back. Mostly because he found out that he came out to his mom. But damn, he’s still being pushy about Marco coming out to his dad. Marco should have told him, “One at a time bitch.” His dad Stereotype comes around and is beyond proud of Marco winning the school election. But then he asks him what queer means. Marco just says, “Dirty politics.” Like I said, he’s very lucky that his dad is stupid and totally believes him and that awful answer.
So this episode was pretty good. It seems like Emma is becoming the new bitch at the school because she’s finally starting to get a woman’s body and she knows it now. Dylan was annoying as hell though. I thought Marco was the woman in the relationship, but it seems like Dylan is now the power bottom.
