** [[spoiler: Campbell's suicide. Although Campbell's method of suicide is never stated, it's most likely he slit his wrists. This was foreshadowed by Cam's reaction to cutting himself with his ice skate in "Rusty Cage" and while Eli was discovering his body, he was looking down, so it's implied that his body was not hanging, but rather on the ground. Further evidence is Eli was traumatized by red paint which resembled blood in "Ray Of Light". However, the writers were advised by on-set psychologists not to reveal exactly how Cam died, as doing so had the possibility to be "harmful" to audiences (i.e. inspire copycat suicides).]]

* In Season 6, a character named Nic had a group of kids beat Toby up. On the site, it says that he probably transferred schools. What is really creepy is how almost his ENTIRE GANG (except Johnny) did not come back in Season 7 to Degrassi. What is interesting is that his school burned down. Maybe Johnny was absent if Nic and his gang burned the school down.

* The fact that Emma had been been groomed by this pedophile for eight months qualifies as fridge horror in itself. The revelation is practically a throwaway line in the script, and has much less immediate dramatic impact than the horrifying near-rape scene itself, but the experience of being gaslighted and manipulated by a sexual predator for so long, of having one's first sexual feelings exploited and manipulated, of having to doubt one's instincts, one's entire thinking processes, is arguably more damaging than the near-rape itself. No wonder Emma goes from giggly/happy in the pilot to drawn-faced shrewishness thereafter.

* "Snake" Simpson was 15/16 when he walked into the boys' bathroom and saw Claude's dead body ''with its' face blown off''. A couple years later, one of his best friends killed a child while [[DrunkDriver driving drunk]] and went to prison for ten years. During his teaching career, he's seen a school shooting leave a promising young athlete paralyzed and a bright, well-liked kid stabbed to death in the street, seemingly randomly. Within his first few months as principal, he had to deal with a hazing incident, punish a hate crime that could've led to devastating injury as mere bullying (involving the same MamaBear as the previous one), and discovered narrow aversions of prostitution, rape and ''another'' knifing-in one night! Tell me, ''what runs through this guy's head when he tries to sleep at night''?

* Also considered FridgeBrilliance, Craig's apparently sudden drug use. Sadly, people with mental disorders like his, such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, [[TruthInTelevision often self-medicate with harder drugs instead of the proper prescription drugs out of stigma or inability to obtain/afford the medications they need.]]

** It seems a little [[DerailingLoveInterests off]] that Eli is acting so overprotective of Clare [[spoiler:once Fitz returns]] into mid-Season 10 that it's quite unnerving, but it makes sense when you consider his perspective: [[spoiler:his last girlfriend was killed in an accident that he blames himself for, and his rival who previously tried to stab him is back and is in close proximity with his current girlfriend.]]

* Campbell and SelfHarm: he's never been caught. [[NewTransferStudent For all we know]] he's been doing it for ''years''. Neither he nor what he inflicts on himself fit the "cutter" stereotype, and what's one more cut/bruise/scar on a hardcore hockey player? Something really creepy happens later in the season.
