We Got the Beat Season 7, Episode 6

Finally! After what seemed like forever, the Degrassi writers gave us an episode featuring some of our favorites that we hadn't heard lately. While Manny prepared for her debutant ball, Jimmy met a girl in physical therapy just as his relationship with Ashley began to fizzle out. With her 18th birthday rapidly approaching, Manny found herself in another tight spot with her parents. In addition to forcing her to partake in a traditional Filipino debutant ball, the college fair hit Degrassi, providing yet another opportunity for Manny to clash with her folks. Manny has always wanted to pursue a career in theater but with her parents paying for college, Papa Santos had his own ideas regarding his daughter's career path. All of the pressure she was getting from her parents caused Manny to crash the family BMW with no other option but to go to Jay for help in secretly fixing it. When Jay came through just in time to get the car back without Manny's parents noticing, Manny cooked up a scheme to show her parents they can't continue to run her life. She asked Jay to escort her to the ball, hoping his typical Jay behavior would come out in full force. Her plan failed, however, when Mr. Santos took a liking to Jay despite his messy past. As Jimmy started an intense round of physical therapy, he and Ashley's relationship seemed to be heading to Splitsville when he discovered his rap track had been deleted off of their demo. When he confronted her about it, Ashley tried to explain how it all came back to how Craig screwed her over, but Jimmy couldn't help but feel hurt by her betrayal. At the same time, Jimmy met a new girl named Trina in physical therapy. It was clear that Jimmy and Trina hit it off, making it difficult for Jimmy to have any desire to reconcile with Ashley. Even when Jimmy decided to push forward with the demo (rap track included) he quickly realized that superstardom wasn't his dream. He didn't want his disability to be the reason for his fame. The episode ended with Manny's debut. All hopes of getting to her father were dashed when a cleaned-up Jay showed up looking spiffy. When all appeared hopeless, it was time for Manny to show off her acting chops. She decided to show her father what it would be like if she allowed men like him to dictate her future. After a pretty hilarious show, Mr. Santos caved and allowed his daughter to go after her dream of acting. The credits rolled as Manny and Papa Santos shared a father/daughter dance. This week seemed to mark the end of another miniseason of Degrassi. The episode itself didn't pack much punch and the season as a whole was disappointing. You would think merging two rival schools would make for a bit more drama but it all seemed too tame as a follow-up to the season in which JT was killed. As many of us have wondered, where was Emma all season? We got a little bit of screen time from her in this week's show but only as Manny's sidekick. She briefly mentioned that Sean joined the Army, but otherwise, we got nothing. Emma, Liberty and Manny looked amazing all decked out for the ball but looking good ain't enough. Hopefully the writers will hear the complaints we've all had and bring on some juicy stories next season. Until then, thanks for reading. See y'all next semester! show less
