Riley’s actions backfire, Alli’s dance group has different goals from her own, and Jenna’s jealousy threatens her relationship with KC.
Ah, the air is crisp, the sun is shining, the grass is green and the flagpole is looking a little too lonely. Riley and Owen take it upon themselves to decorate said flagpole with Drew, minus his clothes. Owen’s idea of hazing is actually Riley’s idea of paying Drew back for threatening to tell the team he’s gay. Hmmmm…how could this backfire?
*Writers note: DO NOT Saran Wrap anyone to anything! This stuff gets tighter as time goes by and starts to constrict the wrapee. You could do some serious damage to someone and they could easily experience breathing troubles as the wrap tightens. Just follow Chantay’s handbook for hazing and ask for a pack of gum or something.
The football players are called into the gym where Principal Simpson, Mr. Armstrong and Drew’s mom demand to know who did the hazing. Drew covers for Riley and Owen and says his hazers were wearing masks. Drew’s mom, Mrs. Torres, singles Riley out as the criminal since her son is going out for Riley’s position. Dang. She good.
Later that day Riley thanks Drew for not telling on him, but Drew had reasons for his silence other than his daily karma check. Drew wants Riley to step down as quarterback or else he’ll tell the team that Riley is gay and that he tied Drew to the flagpole. Roh row! Riley decides to ignore Drew’s threats and before the first game Mr. Armstrong announces Riley as the team captain and starting QB. Guess who isn’t happy about this? Poo poo Drew, that’s who.
Drew’s mom has now gone to the school board and demands the season be put on hold until whoever hazed Drew comes forward. Riley confesses to the crime and is benched for five games. Didn’t cha think he was gonna finally tell everyone he’s gay? Me too, me too.
Alli’s plans for high school popularity seem to be off to a good start. She has started a dance club and even convinces bad girl Bianca to join with the incentive of skipping class for rehearsals (maybe she should start a business club – Alli worked Bianca’s weaknesses like a Trump with a comb over).
The first practice goes well and Bianca is even able to teach everyone a few steps. Then Alli announces she’s booked the Big D Club to perform at the football game and reveals that her reasons for the club are to get friends and popularity. I don’t think her intentions were so bad, but her delivery was all wrong. Mr. Trump would have been disappointed, Alli.
The team bails on Alli and kick her out of her own club, but that doesn’t mean she can get out of performing at the football game!
Always a trooper, Alli gets her Bhandari booty on the field and starts dancing…well, she just kinda jumps and claps, but I’ll take it! Thankfully Clare, Wesley, Connor and Dave join her on the field. Let’s take a moment and enjoy how freakin’ cute Dave is with his sick moves. Hottie in the making!
KC is still getting nonstop text messages and seems to always be talking to Marisol. KC leaves Jenna at their table in the caf to talk to Marisol (big surprise) and Jenna takes this opportunity to snag KC’s phone and find out who the texts are coming from. The number is unknown, so Jenna puts her Nancy Drew hat on and calls the digits. It’s KC’s mom! Isn’t she in jail??
Later in class KC’s phone starts ringing…in Jenna’s backpack. KC is mayjah pissed that Jenna took his phone and she admits to going through his messages and then calling his mom. KC finally tells Jenna that his mom has been out of jail for eight months and is trying to contact him. He wants to talk about the sitch about as much as he wants to talk to his mom – zippo.
Will KC finally see his mom? Will Riley ever tell the team he’s gay? Will Alli have people to hang out with at school? Will Dave try out for So You Think You Can Dance Canada? Find out tomorrow on an all new episode of Degrassi at 9pm ET only on MuchMusic!Tweet
