Alli is angry and tells him Drew made her life a living hell and just how can he choose him? Sav counters and says that maybe their parents seeing her file is why she's under lockdown.

She asks just how was she supposed to take his betrayal, working with the guy who made her life made her life a living hell? Sav is pissed and he tells her that she made her own life a living hell and that Drew didn't force her date Johnny or sex or have a double life. He adds that ever since she's been coming to Degrassi, she made his life a living hell and he's sick of her selfish ways.
