Paige is talking about her breakup to Hazel's breasts when Toby walks by. Paige states that she is free to date either guys or girls, which gives Toby an idea. The Tobster may not be much of a man, but past experience when he is home alone tells him that he looks presentable in a dress and makeup. With this in mind, Toby hits on Paige. It's just nice to see Toby actually speak, we don't get much of that.

Principal Hotass brings Jimmy in to tell him that he doesn't have enough credits to graduate and will have to repeat school next year. Jimmy is bummed, but this is his fault. Just because he was in the hospital for a while doesn't mean he couldn't have kept up with his classes. If he had time to make a comic book while in the hospital, he could have at least gotten some make up work done. Principal Hotass can't help Jimmy because she's a pretty poor and uncaring principal. We all know Hotass only got the job because the Superintendent liked her 35 year old cleavage

Jimmy takes out his disappointment in not graduating by trying to fight Spinner. Jimmy must be feeling suicidal because messing with Spinner is a good way to ensure you become paralyzed from the hair on down. Spinner just needs to bring Jimmy to a stairwell and it's over. But Marco intervenes. Something about him being gay or something. You can make up the joke here, I'm tired.

What the fuck? Ashley is back all the sudden? That sucks. Let me tell you, seeing Degrassi with Ashley and without makes me appreciate how much better the show is without Ashley. Worse, she is even more pretentious and snobby than before, talking about how much more fun it is in London than in Degrassi with all these losers. Go away Ashley.

I didn't really follow the B plot for part 2, but it has to do with Jimmy liking Ellie. But Ellie doesn't like Jimmy that way even though she's been dropping hints all season. Ellie is such a jerk. In the end it appears that Ashley and Jimmy will be getting back together, so Jimmy is happy about that. Nothing like a girlfriend to wheel you around. Though Ashley will probably spend their time talking about how much fun it is to be able to walk.

Spinner comes down to Paige's bedroom where Paige has been reminiscing about the time she was dating Spinner, aka, the best years of her life. He wants to talk about the kiss. Coincidentally, Paige has been going through old yearbooks and thinking about how great it was back when she was dating Spinner. Paige does that every night, though.

We then see a New York Times article declaring Spinner and Paige Couple of the Year.

Paige tells Spinner "Just so you know, I never blamed you for what happened with Jimmy." Yes, you did Paige. We can go back to previous episodes for proof. And worse, you were dating the girl who actually dumped the damn paint on Rick and set him off. Paige is just saying this so Spinner will have sex with her. Which he does. Really.

There is only one thing I can say about that:

Oh, Degrassi look at that. Way to push The-N's buttons.

The fiftieth anniversary play in underway. It opens with Darcy dancing to some Sixties grooves. Not sure why this is in the play, but it's just good to see Darcy wiggle her sweet ass.

Well, Spinner has a choice to make. On one had, Darcy is the most attractive girl Degrassi has ever seen. On the other hand, with Paige he can have sex.

He picks Paige. But when Spinner tells Paige he wants to be in a relationship, Paige tells him that was just a one night stand. Paige was feeling very low (she had incurable cancer) but sex with Spinner made her feel good again (the tumor vanished overnight).

Spinner can't believe this. "You used me for my body," he says. Spinner doesn't even know the power of his own mojo.

Flabbergasted, Spinner figures it is best to stay with Darcy. But then Darcy finds out about him and Paige's night of sex because Spinner's cell phone told her. Now Darcy and Spinner are broken up again, for the fourth or fifth time in the last 48 hours.

It's graduation day! While watching the ceremony, Jimmy realizes how wrong he was to end his friendship with Spinner. He begs Spinner to be friends again. Well, Spinner wins this one. After all, he got all his old friends back but Jimmy is still paralyzed.

Spinner then drives to find Darcy about to leave for her job at a summer camp that tries to turn gay kids straight. He asks Darcy to take him back, saying he probably won't cheat on her again. Darcy doesn't give Spinner an answer, she'll think about while at summer camp. That's not going to help. It will just mean that Spinner is going to sleep around all summer too.

What the fuck? Craig is back too? Damn this is going to suck. I suppose his musical career fizzled out when the record company realized CRAIG SUCKS AT GUITAR. Come on already. We're done with Craig. At least Ellie discovers she is alone again, because she turned down Jimmy but Craig is back with Manny. Ha ha.

A bunch of characters graduate high school. And with that, those actors will have to find other work. Good luck with that. It worked out well for the actors from original Degrassi.

Rating: B
I like the fact that the A plot for this episode was about how much of a sex machine Spinner is. It seems that the Degrassi writers and producers have been coming to this site for ideas. We've been waiting too long for a two parter about Spinner, they always have to be about fucking Craig (and usually Craig and Ashley). It's like how the X-Men always spend too much time focusing on Cyclops and Jean Gray and not enough on Gambit. But this time the Degrassi people gave the audience what we want, two episodes about Spinner fucking lots of women.

You'd think this would be an instant A+ ep, but I have to take some points away for having a B plot about Ellie. The cameos by Craig and Ashley really pissed me off too.

Intensity Level: 100% INTENSE
Yeah, it goes there.

"High Fidelity" Drinking Game:
Just drink way your sorrows that came with realizing Ashley and Craig are going to be back next season.

Final Thoughts:
Wow. Season 5 has been the most bizarre season yet. Liberty got pregnant. JT overdosed on Vitamin C and cried liked a little girl. Paige was a lesbian for four whole months. Toby had around seven lines of dialogue. A lot of crazy shit happened this year and most of it was pretty good. This season has also been a big Spinner season and I want to thank the Degrassi people for that.

I look forward to next season because I hear Sean will return. If so, I hope they do plenty of episodes where Spinner and Sean hang out. Maybe they hook up with Jay and Alex and go on a candy bar robbing spree. They could have a secret shed in the ravine stocked with Hershey bars. That is the best idea for an episode ever.

Also, how about the fact that half the characters have to repeat senior year?
