Recap / Degrassi S 10 E 2 What A Girl Wants

Go To

There was a time I was blind, I was so confused
I'd run away just to hide it all from you
But baby you knew me better, oh
Than I knew myself
They say if you love something let it go
And if it comes back it's yours
And that's how you know

A Plot

Fiona is preparing her showcase of her new uniforms for Vanderbilt Prep. Bobby is apologetic about slapping her, and freaks out when he sees that he bruised her. He feels terrible...and asks if she told anyone. Fiona doesn't want to rock the boat, so she says didn't say anything. The Vanderbilt Prep headmaster is sitting watching Fiona's presentation of the new designs. She even shows off a re-designed school crest, to which the headmaster isn't impressed with. Fiona gets flustered but Bobby steps up and defends the design. Fiona smiles, maybe Bobby isn't a bad guy.

Fiona's family is very happy for her, especially now that she's dating Bobby and not bringing in the drama. Fiona tells them she's now drama-free. Fiona is happy...until she sees Bobby making out with Vanderbilt Prep bicycle, Tinsley. Fiona stays at home "sick", so Bobby goes to visit. Fiona confronts Bobby about Tinsley but Bobby convinces her that he wasn't cheating and Tinsley "jumped him" because they dated and she's not over him. He grabs her shoulders and tells her he would never cheat on her and that he loves her.


Fiona is ambivalent about dating Bobby but her family being so happy about them dating isn't helping. Mrs. Coyne wants to go to dinner with the Beckenridges, but Fiona shrugs it off. Mrs. Coyne reminds Fiona of her therapy: don't look for problems that aren't there. She then presents Fiona with a gift from Bobby — a snowglobe from Aspen. Mrs. Coyne recalls the memory of visiting Aspen with Bobby and Fiona recalls how drama-filled she was even as a child. Mrs. Coyne tells her that those days are over.

Later, Declan pleads for Fiona to come to dinner with the Beckenridges and Fiona says she's still sick. Declan calls her bluff and tells her she promised no more drama. He asks again, and Fiona says no. Declan leaves in a huff and Fiona throws Bobby's snowglobe against the fireplace, smashing it. Fiona skypes with Holly J about her concerns with Bobby. She asks why can't be like Holly J and Declan. Holly J asks why, she thought things with Bobby were going great. Fiona says they aren't and everyone thinks Bobby is so awesome and Holly J tells her if she's unhappy, end it. She tells Fiona that if she needs anything, she knows where she is.


The next day at Vanderbilt Prep, Fiona isn't taking to Bobby but Bobby is all charm and reassures her he's done with Tinsely. But then, Bobby gets a text from Tinsely during their conversation. Fiona yells at him and runs away. Bobby follows her yelling at her. He traps her and tells her she's embarrassing herself. Fiona threatens to expose Bobby, but Bobby laughs saying no one would believe her. She squirms away and runs away up the stairs and Bobby runs after her, grabs her arm and throws her down the stairs. Fiona is shockingly still breathing and tearfully tells Bobby that she wants to break up, but Bobby looks at her and says, "No, you don't."
