** I think he was doing fine talking with Vince until he decided to answer his phone and give the impression that he was going to prom with Bianca ''right in front of her angry abusive boyfriend.'' If he really did want Vince to show up at prom so they could fight, Drew probably should have been GenreSavvy enough to expect Vince to bring a gun to a fist fight. He also didn't need to look so smug while he was saying it.

* Why is it every school play at Degrassi is always a metaphor for someone's relationship with someone else? Space Awakening was supposedly based on Declan and Holly J's relationship and Eli's play... just enough said. I did theater all four years of high school - while our director probably would have been open to the idea of putting together a student-written production, we did [[TheMusicMan shows]] [[HelloDolly normal]] [[Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors high]] [[Theatre/{{Seussical}} schools]] [[Theatre/OnceUponAMattress do]]. I wouldn't expect the producers of Degrassi to have the budget to show the students mounting a production of ''The Music Man'' (more for music rights issues, not so much it being a big show to mount) - but couldn't they show the Degrassi students doing a production of, say, Theatre/OurTown (another play I did in HS), Theatre/ThePiratesOfPenzance or any [[Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet Shakespeare]] [[Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream play]] than always depending on student-written productions?

* Am I the only one who feels like Eli doesn't have bipolar disorder? I'm not a medical professional, but it feels to me like he has some other anxiety disorder and they just decided to [[TheyJustDidntCare slap the bipolar label on him]] so they would have an {{Expy}} of Craig for this season.

* Okay, a double headscratcher, and an annoying one, regarding Goldi and the whole Degrassi/Frankie racism arc. One, all the volleyball team's clothes got taken, including, presumbly, Goldi's hijab. To knowledge, taking a woman's headwear is an affront in Islam, so why didn't the team call their opponents out on such a disrespectful act, when they were so quick to call Degrassi out for the revenge banner? Secondly, on the subject of the banner, Goldi is fully aware of prejudice against her religion, as evidenced by her speech to Frankie, yet she was seen helping the team with the banner. Doesn't this seem a little hypocritical?

** Joey is specifically said to have been PutOnABus to ''Calgary.'' Angie went with him. That's a long way for TheBusCameBack, with no real reason other than attending high school--of which there are many, much closer.

** Because "real" musicals have these things called copyright attached to them. Getting permission to use the real thing costs money, from a budget that Degrassi doesn't have. This is why ''Series/{{Glee}}'' has a budge of $6M+ per episode.

** Except that 87% in Ontario is an A+ average. Yes, it is that prestigious, and the competition is stiff.

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield , anyway? According to TheOtherWiki , the fictional Banting University is supposed to represent Queen's University, and is in Kingston. This is believable when Paige drives three hours to get back to Toronto when she drops/gets kicked out. Smithdale, on the other hand, is supposed to represent York University. Yet Manny says that Jay "drove for two days" to get there. Without any stops, that puts them in Vancouver (which is about a 39 hour drive). York University is in Toronto, so where is Smithdale supposed to be? Toronto traffic is bad, but not that bad.
