In this exclusive clip from Part 1 of the Season 12 summer finale, Eli (Munro Chambers) gets disappointing news that some parents are concerned about the content of his play.

"I will defend this play until my dying breath," Eli tells the principal.

Part 1 of the Degrassi summer finale airs on Wednesday at 10/9c on TeenNick.
