BIG TIME EVENTS THAT HAPPEN ON DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION

SO MUCH GOES DOWN ON THIS SHOW!!!!! Also, this list will only go through JT dying because that's where I stopped watching/moved on with my TV life. After writing this, I realized I am probably missing A TON, so add stuff! Also, this is far more chronological than I intended.
  1. Emma meets that creep from online in a HOTEL ROOM. ALONE. Where is Chris Hansen when you need him?
    Pretty sure this happened in the very first episode...what a way to start the show!
  2. Emma gets her period at school. She is wearing a khaki skirt and a terrible rainbow striped sweater. I don't know why I remember this so vividly.
  3. ASHLEY TAKES ECSTASY AT HER OWN PARTY
  4. Spinner gets a boner at school and says it was because Emma was giving him too much healthy food. What teenage boy wears track pants to high school anyway?
  5. PAIGE GETS RAPED. I remember this episode was titled "Shout." And it was an extended hour and a half version.
  6. Cute Manny goes away/ENTER HOT MANNY
  7. Manny gets pregnant by Craig
  8. Manny has an abortion
  9. Rick comes to the school and gets bullied by Alex and Spinner and Jay.
  10. They blame this on JIMMY AND THEN RICK SHOOTS HIM. By far the biggest event of the series, in my opinion.
  11. RICK DIES.
  12. Emma gets gonorrhea from Jay who has just been spreading it all over the place like its candy.
  13. DRAKE IS IN THIS SHOW.
