Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Spinner Mason, Soccer Superstar. Spinner actually knows soccer is super lame and the stupidest sport in the world (take that Portugal), but Spinner is good at EVERYTHING, so he just wants to humiliate all the soccer fags at their own game. Plus Spinner likes wearing his socks up high.

After Spinner scores the winning goal, he asks out Paige. Paige of course says yes, because no one says no to Spinner.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

In the locker room, everyone congratulates Spinner for being so all around awesome. "I'm a winner on the field and with he ladies!" proclaims Spinner. "You're the man these days," says Jimmy. Damn straight.

Hey Jimmy is that your water bottle or are you just happy to be breathing in Spinner's sweat? Is that a water bottle or is your penis white with a red head and made of plastic? Oh...it's a water bottle. It was ridiculous to assume otherwise.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Whoa they're getting Spinner all wet! That's what you do to the champ! That's how the Superbowl winning teams show love for their coach, or how rest of cast showed their love to Chuck Norris after taping Walker, Texas Ranger.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Even though Paige has promised to go out with Spin, she has her eye on another man, Dean, the soccer player from the competing school. Dean invites Paige to a party. Hazel can't believe Paige is thinking about dumping Spinner for Dean, and she tells Paige, "I don't care what you say, Spinner's got it fresh." Yeah, Hazel knows the truth.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Ok, even though this episode is going to have Paige getting raped, the producers still decided to throw in a JT and Toby b-plot. Because hey, why not? JT and Toby are sharing a locker, and Toby is mad JT is so messy.

JT justifies the mess by referring to their locker as "a man cave." Oh, JT, you are ever the card. I'm amazed you can cram that much junk into a locker to begin with. Lockers are very small and all those medicine balls will take up a lot of room.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Paige still intends on blowing off Spinner to go to Dean's party. To look good for Dean, she considers buying some very expensive shoes. What is this Sex and the City? Well, kind of I guess. It does have rape, and the show is set in Toronto, which the encyclopedia tells me is a city.

Paige makes an excuse for canceling the date with Spinner, by text messaging him to say her grandma is in the hospital. Paige, you are such a bitch. You deserve to be raped.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Meanwhile, Spinner is getting ready for his big night with Paige. He makes Jimmy follow him and carry all the food. I like how in this episode, both Spinner and Paige's black sidekicks spend the whole episode just following them around. Jimmy and Hazel are Paige and Spinner's slaves.

Spinner then gets Paige's messaging calling off the date. He is so pissed he punches Jimmy in the stomach.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Ooh...hot freshman ass. Paige and Hazel arrive at Dean's party. Paige hits it off with Dean.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

We then go to some nonsensical cutaway where JT is making a goop for him and Toby to eat. I don't know what this scene has to do with anything.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Hey, there's Spinner and Jimmy at the party. What the hell? Why are they at Dean's party? It must be because Dean called Spinner earlier and begged him to come to the party, because Spinner would make it cool. "Come on man, my party won't be cool if you don't show up. Please? I'll pay you."

Paige sees the guys there, and doesn't want to get into trouble with Spinner, so she asks Dean to take her some place private. Whoa!

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Well, it's a funny story, really. Dean takes Paige to a bedroom and then rapes her. Yup, that's about it. The camera pans to a window where we see Spinner, Jimmy and Hazel all partying while Paige gets raped, so that's pretty funny.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

The next day. Paige's first full day as a rape victim. She sits alone on the bleachers and looks longingly, until she realizes it's the morning and there are no sports games going on, so she should probably leave.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Well, while Paige is feeling the guilt of being used for sex against her will, JT and Toby are still having their wacky misadventures. To solve the messy locker problem, Toby has divided the locker in two halves, like King Solomon or all those sitcom episodes in the sixties. Toby leaves and JT sees that Toby's sleeve from his shirt is hanging onto JT's side. So JT cuts it off and drops kicks it into the trash bin. JT you rock.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Hazel continues to pester Paige for information about Paige's hot time with Dean (Hazel doesn't know it was rape). "Come one Paige, give me something., I'm dieing here," Hazel pleads. Goddamn it Hazel, it's quiet reading time, not time for you to get off on hot descriptions of Dean plowing Paige's girl hole.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Spinner knows that Paige skipped her date with him to get busy with Dean, because Spinner knows everything. Spinner is furious that someone would dare lie to him, and think she could get away with it and still keep the use of her legs.

Spinner feels betrayed. He wanted to take Paige to see Star Wars, the most romantic thing a guy can do for a gal, and Paige just stabs him in the back. Spinner confronts Paige, and part of this confrontation involves Spinner making a grab at Paige's breast. That's the Spinner way.

"Don't touch me, don't ever touch me," cries Paige.

"Why not?" replies Spin, "Everybody else does!" What a kickass thing to say. Spinner...what can I say, except you do indeed rule.

That remark causes Paige to slap Spinner and then run into the only place she feels safe, her office: the girls bathroom.

Spinner considers kicking Paige's head against the wall for retribution, but instead he just stands outside the bathroom bewildered. This is a completely new experience for Spinner. He has never been rejected by a woman ever. Remember how in "Weird Science" every single female in the school came on to him, including several faculty and staff?

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Meanwhile, Toby opens his locker and finds that his sweatshirt has been cut. What is awesome, was that JT was just sitting there on the bench waiting for Toby to see this so he could say something smart. JT is so cool. I wonder how long JT was sitting there waiting.

JT and Toby get into an incredibly nerdy nerd fight. Come on JT, you should have won that easily, but Principal Raditch breaks it up before the two just collapse from exhaustion.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Hazel goes to the bathroom to find Paige. She knows something is seriously wrong with Paige after she refused to be felt up by Spinner  Damn, Hazel has a huge rack. Look at those. Just look for a minute, we'll come back to the review when you're done.

Done? Ok. It's here that Paige admits to Hazel that Dean raped her.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

JT makes it up to Toby by letting Toby cut the sleeve off of his shirt. Now they are fiends again. Too bad JT's shirt just looks cooler now. Damn, JT is sweet. You can't bring him down. He is too cool to be friends with Toby.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode twenty-two

Hazel chases Paige outside, trying to convince Paige she needs to go to the authorities.

Hey, who is that guy is the background with his arms around two girls? Is that Spinner? It sure looks like it. He didn't let Paige's rejection get to him. Spinner's such a playboy.

I like how even though Paige still feels dirty from her rape, she still wears shirts that expose her belly. Though, with Paige, I doubt she owns any shirts that don't expose her belly.

And with that, we go to Part 2 -->
