The ‘Degrassi’ reunion episode was everything we wanted it to be and more. Craig, Emma and more alum walk the halls of Degrassi High once again in the show’s 500th episode! Here’s everything you need to know about what went down. Plus, check out all the epic photos!
On the Degrassi: Next Class episode titled “#ThrowbackThursday,” also the Degrassi universe’s 500th episode, Liberty is the first to show up, naturally. Of course she is the first one to arrive for Degrassi’s 60th anniversary weekend celebration. It’s Liberty.
Liberty’s still in law school and the captain of her ultimate frisbee team. Holly J. runs into Liberty while she’s talking to Tristan. Tristan fangirls over seeing the former student council president in the flesh.
I have to give it up to Liberty. She’s the only one who brings up Jimmy (a.k.a. Drake), while explaining to the new class that she and fellow classmates had to fight to get wheelchair ramps for Jimmy at the school.
Peter, who’s been on Degrassi: Next Class before, is helping out with the special performance at the formal spectacular. Peter and Sav are still performing together after all these years. Also, Peter and Sav look SO HOT!
Hands down the best part about the Degrassi reunion? Watching Craig sing “Rescue You” from the Degrassi Goes Hollywood movie. Best. Throwback. Ever. But where’s Ellie?!
Marco and Paige are still besties. Marco has a podcast and inspires Lola to bring up the problems about the school’s zero tolerance policy with the administration. She finds Spike and Spinner walking around in the school and faces Snake head-on about Tiny’s suspension. Later, exes Paige and Spinner give Frankie a pep talk about surviving high school. “We both made a lot of mistakes when we were here,” Paige says. “I dated him, for instance.”
Spinner admitted that he got a boner in class, cheated on Paige, kind of got his best friend shot, but he still managed to make it through. “Degrassi always seems to give you a second chance,” Paige notes.
Emma makes a brief appearance when she reunites with Liberty. Emma and Spinner are still married, if you can believe it!
