‘Degrassi’ Recap: Alli’s Wedding Ends In Tragedy On Winter Premiere

The happiest day of Alli’s life quickly turned into a nightmare she couldn’t escape.

Degrassi‘s 13th season continued Jan. 28 with Alli’s (Melinda Shankar) 18th birthday, and in typical Alli fashion, she went BIG. And that’s not an exaggeration; before the half-hour premiere was over, she’d been engaged, married and horrifically beaten to a bloody pulp.

Marrying Leo seemed like the easiest way to keep him in the country, but the happiest day of Alli’s life quickly turned into a nightmare she couldn’t escape, as she found herself being beaten mercilessly in Leo’s crappy car mere minutes after saying “I do.” Her family and friends were horrified by her injuries, but rather than admit they were Leo’s doing — which would also require her to come clean about the wedding — she made up a story about getting mugged.

Honestly, Alli’s story line really upsets me. She’s been through so much during her tenure at Degrassi, and it was nice to see her on target for early graduation; but now I’m worried that her infatuation with this French monster could jeopardize her entire future. You’d think Alli, being the strong person that she is, wouldn’t take Leo’s crap, but you never know how you’re going to react until you’re in the situation, I guess.

Zig & Maya: Round 2?

Meanwhile, as a punishment for her recent string of naughty shenanigans, Maya (Olivia Scriven) was banished to the “Rubber Room,” which led to an unexpected reunion with Zig (Ricardo Hoyos). I’m not sure when Zig officially evolved from adorkable buffoon to full-fledged badass, but I think I like him better this way. I’m getting serious old-school Spinner vibes from him, and that’s never a bad thing.

As Tristan (Lyle Lettau) astutely pointed out, Zig clearly still has feelings for Maya, so I wasn’t surprised when he stormed out after she accused him of only becoming a rebel because he wasn’t able to get over her.


The Truth About ‘Dare’

Fans hoping for a full-blown ‘thing’ between Drew (Luke Bilyk) and Clare (Aislinn Paul) were probably a little disappointed by the pair’s interaction this week. Fresh off their fumble-y kiss, Clare made it crystal clear that Drew wasn’t her type, and that she’s still very much in love with Eli (Munro Chambers).

During a little chat with Dallas (Demetrius Joyette), Drew claimed that he didn’t want Clare, but he wanted her to want him. Does anyone else think he’s just covering up how he really feels? I predict we’ll see plenty of ‘Dare’ before the season is up.

HollywoodLifers, what did you think of the Degrassi premiere? Are you heartbroken over Alli’s situation? Do you think Maya should give Zig a second chance? And what’s your stance on the whole ‘Dare’ issue? Drop a comment with your thoughts below.

If you find yourself in a situation with your home that you are
completely upside down, your credit cards are
maxed and you are barely able to make minimum payments or you have medical bills that make
paying your other debt then it is possible bankruptcy is
an option for you. While the protections available differ based
on state and federal law and are too complicated to cover in
great detail outside of a consultation, the most well
known protection is that afforded the so called “head of household”.
some bankruptcy lawyers are very sincere with their work and also gets agree at intervals your
needed budget, they totally discus the entire case and budget of the debtor and if it’s possible
for them they begin operating on the bankruptcy case with full devotion.
