Oh boy. This episode...this episode is something else. This is when Manny stops being Emma's shadow and is given a personality of her own. And the personality is that of a whore. Well, I don't want to spoil this too much further, just enjoy the review.

The soccer team comes back from what must have been a ridiculously muddy soccer game. Manny tries to ask out this guy named Sully, but Sully is all like "Who are you? Shouldn't you be following Emma around? Go away."

Manny is sad that she's not cool enough to date an extra. Paige offers Manny the advice that if she doesn't like her image, she should just change it. This is a big moment of truth for Manny.

The next day, Manny tells Emma she is changing her image. Manny then takes off her tack suit. Is she naked under there? Is she...

No..

Manny wears a super-fly new outfit. She's sporting sweatpants, which are sexy enough, but Manny is going all out to make herself not be Emma's shadow anymore. Crazy pop-dance music starts playing while the girls stroll down the street.

JT is so fixated on Manny's hot ass, he smacks into a car.

JT lies on the street, in desperate need of medical attention, while Manny and Emma pass by, snickering at how Manny's hot ass put JT in critical condition. God damn it, girls, help him to the hospital.

Meanwhile, Joey starts making out with his alcoholic girlfriend, when they are interrupted by some very loud music. Apparently, Iron Maiden is playing a show in his garage.

It turns out it's not Iron Maiden. Craig has formed a band with Spinner, Jimmy and Marco. It's a pretty kickass band at this point, because right now they sound like Iron Maiden.

Joey wants to jam with the band, so he pulls out his keyboard and makes them play that stupid song from the 80's Degrassi show. Even Marco thinks that song is really gay.

Man, Craig's band needs better groupies. One of them is ridiculously under age and another is a recovering Goth. At least they have Joey's drunk girlfriend, but it won't be long until Spinner sticks his tongue in her throat and claims her for himself.

Girls, this is why you don't want to have a boyfriend who is in a band. Instead of being taken out to nice dinners, you'll have to sit on a couch while he plays the riff from "Smoke on the Water" for three hours. Also, you'll always be loaning him money.

Well, that's as far as I care to go discussing the Craig's band plotline, it's time to watch as Manny continues to become a whore.

Emma and Manny go to the thong store. Manny doesn't feel like she's dressing enough like a slut, so she wants to up her slut factor.

The next day, Manny is sporting a thong as well as showing more belly than Paige ever did. More crazy dance-pop music plays and I assume that the weird music is coming out of Manny's ass. All the boys are blown away by her whoreness.

JT is so fixated on Manny's hot ass, he smacks into that divider thing you find in the middle of school doorways. Oh no. JT is going to be dead before this episode is over.

In the next class, Liberty is sitting behind Manny and staring at her thong. Liberty is offended that Manny is showing her underpants, but Manny snaps back telling Liberty no one liker her and she should die. You go girl.

Later on, all the guys huddle around Manny and don't pay any attention Emma's environmental presentation about wooden toilet seats.

How about Ashley there? She doesn't know what's going on.

Later, Principal Raditch comes up to Manny and tells her that she can't be showing her undergarments in school anymore. Way to be a buzz kill Raditch. I bet Liberty complained to him. Fuck you Liberty.

The next day, Manny shows Emma her hot new clothes. How about the fact that every time Manny reveals some new slutty outfit, she always takes off her tracksuit like a stripper. Emma reminds Manny that she isn't allowed to dress like that anymore. Manny points out that the principal only said she couldn't be exposing her underwear. Manny then whispers Emma a little secret:

Manny isn't wearing any underwear!

WHOA!

Manny walks down the hall. and more dance-pop music plays out of her ass. All the boys check her out.

In class, Manny bends down to feed some frogs. Everyone looks out to sneak a  peak, even Liberty. Manny was just about to expose her crack, when JT comes to rescue.

In the hallway, Emma tries to tell Manny that her clothes are giving her a bad attitude. Manny gets all defensive and the girls argue until Emma comes right out and calls Manny a slut. Oh yeah Emma! But then Manny calls environmentalism stupid. That crossed the line for Emma!

I guess that friendship is over. And too bad for Emma, too. Manny can just sleep around to make new friends, but Emma now has not a single friend and no way to get new ones.

That's how it is when you got the look.

Rating: B+
This is the first episode of the new Manny. No longer just Emma's shadow, she now has a personality. I like how it was Paige that gave her the advice that led Manny to become such a whore. I think Paige sees a little bit of herself in Manny. All around, a good episode. I think Emma was sad that Manny no longer will just follow her around, but the new development of Manny has been something.
