Well, the Degrassi finale is upon us. The powers that be at Degrassi may have a warped sense of humor. Who knows what the writers will try to pull off. A lot of times, its never as you'd hoped. Although, the last time something similar to this happened..it did shake things up at the school.

Eli's got a gun. Madness appears to be on the horizon. Its the anniversary of his ex-girlfriend's death. And he seems to be talking to her. I think the writers will go for Manic Depression instead of Schizophrenia. Although, it would be interesting for the latter. Instead of shooting everyone down (which I hope doesn't happen since it seems it might slice into another storyline or two), have his ex..appear. But I don't see that happening. So I have a feeling the writers will let me down once again, yet I still watch the show. Mainly, because of Munro Chambers.

He's grown so much as an actor on the show. Before this.. he was the usual funny side-kick, The Latest Buzz, but as Eli Goldsworthy, he has brought a true character that fans come back for each week. He's animated and so serious Eli about his horror stories and of course, Clare. Fans will be crushed if its the end for Eli and Clare. But I suppose that's part of keeping us coming back to the show..building them up as a main attraction couple then breaking them down so perhaps they can come together again.
I do feel the writers are finding much more realistic situations these days for teens. There are plenty of bullying lurking about. Dating situations. The show doesn't back away from alternative life-styles.
I can only hope this won't be Eli's last stand. I guess we'll know soon.
