'Degrassi' Season Finale Scoop: Eli Faces Death To Be With Clare! Is He A Goner?

Read our interview with Munro Chambers & check out an exclusive clip from tonight’s season finale of ‘Degrassi!’

Degrassi has mourned the loss of quite a few students over the past 10 seasons, so is death-obsessed Eli (Munro Chambers) the next to join the likes of Rick and J.T. in Degrassi heaven? On the April 22 season finale, Eli takes Clare’s (Aislinn Paul) comments about not liking his car to heart by destroying it for her — while he’s behind the wheel! Munro tells HollywoodLife.com exactly how worried we should all be for Eli…

“I don’t think Eli wants to die,” Munro teases. “But he lost something very close to him [Julia] and being surrounded by death gets him closer to her. In the finale, you’ll see he’s … just a messed up kid.”

But before you start laying flowers on Eli’s grave, Munro hints that the saga of “Eclare” is far from over. He says the events of tonight’s finale will “make next season very, very interesting.”

Regardless of whether or not Eli survives the crash, I have a feeling Aislinn won’t miss having Morty the Hearse as a co-star.

“Aislinn doesn’t like to drive in [the hearse],” Eli tells us. “It freaks her out, but I force her into it. Not too forcefully, though.”
