Holly j: Fiona, again? She told everyone that bobby beat her up.
Why?! 'cause the sky was blue today? I'm so sick of her lies.
Holly j: What if she wasn't lying? She seemed pretty unhinged when we skyped yesterday.
And those pictures Yeah, it proves she's a great make-up artist.
Holly j: I know she does crazy stuff, But maybe this is a cry for help.
Or a cry for attention.
Either way, she's your sister And you should be there for her.
Yeah.
Maybe your parents won't find out? Um, it's on a blog.
And those three w's? They stand for world wide web! Meaning that as in everyone in the world can read it!

You deserve it.
Sav Right, sorry.
Uh, focus.
Okay, they'll- they'll be home any minute.
What do we say? That it's a lie.
The whole pregnancy, it's a lie.
W-wha Really? How could you-? It was holly j's idea.
It was supposed to stop you from running.
Why would you go along with something like that?! Because you dumped me after prom And I spent all summer crying over it.
So I was crapping my pants for nothing? I wanted to come clean, But I was worried that you would hate me.
And I really don't want you to hate me.
Not again.
I guess that's kind of sweet.
Yeah, just like you.
You're a good guy and a great leader, Which is why you should be degrassi's president.
But people think I'm gonna be a dad.
How am I supposed to win now? fiona! Good, you're here.
go away, declan.
No, I'm sorry I got mad.
Just tell me what happened and I'll believe you.
The stairs? He grabbed me, pulled me down.
I shouldn't have doubted you.
Can I blame you? Can I blame anyone? I just wanted to start fresh this year, be happy, But I guess I'm not the kind of person who can be happy.
Well, I've seen you happy.
Not since degrassi.
I just needed someone to listen to me.
Holly j was asking about you.
She did? I told her you were having a hard time Adjusting to vanderbilt.
What did she say? She said I should be there for you.
She's always so good about these kind of things.
I miss her.
Listen, we should mobilize And tell mom and dad and press charges.
You mean involve the cops? No, page six'll be all over it.
I guess we can kiss that drama-free year goodbye, huh? Can we give it some time? A day? Sure.
We'll tell mom and dad tomorrow.
Hi, I'd like to book a flight.
So, good old reliable holly j? I don't know.
Change is always good.
Might have to go with sav.
Speaking of change, What do you think of clare's new hair? Whatever she wants to change is no concern of mine.
Well, that's not all she's changing.
Oh yeah? Trust me.
She's going from 2d to 3d.
Kc, she's getting a boob job.
no way.
I heard her bragging to alli.
Wow.
I mean she looks good the way she is.
I thought it was no concern of yours.
You have been looking at her! Not like that, jenna, but still I wonder what they'll be like? I gotta tell the guys.
Kc! What's going on here? Assault? over there.
Oh, sav got anya pregnant And now he's some type of hero or something.
That doesn't make any sense! You have to tell everyone the truth.
Sav's scoring the sympathy vote.
Can you believe it? Benedict arnold! You've switched sides! If you don't come clean, I will.
And then I'll tell everyone it was your idea And sav knew nothing about it.
You wouldn't dare.
I need to protect my family.
You don't have a family! If anybody finds that out you'll be in big trouble.
Hey, what's that? Oh, I'm trying to decide whether these girls Are hot or not.
Let me see.
You do realize those images make girls feel insecure With the bodies they were given, So they go out and spend money on useless solutions.
you're one to talk.
And what is that supposed to mean? You're getting surgery to change your looks, Aren't you, clare bear? Okay Who's for dodgeball? Great, I'll probably lose another contact.
Jenna, you can have yours done too.
I'm sorry, clare.
I'm happy with what god gave me.
P.
A.
Announcer: Are you team sinclair or team bhandari? Presidential candidates holly j and sav Will duke it out for you votes today in the caf.
Don't miss the debate.
Fiona?! Surprise! Holly j: So you just hopped on a plane? It wasn't hard.
Aren't you happy to see me? Yeah, of course.
It's just surprising.
Where are you staying? Hotel room downtown.
Mom's account.
And she's cool with that? Let's just say I know how to get my way.
You mean by not telling her.
Well, it's not exactly running away If you tell your mom where you're going.
Okay, I'll tell declan.
So you are running away from something.
Declan told me he was waiting for the word To tear bobby's head off.
Let's talk about something more interesting, Like why your head's plastered everywhere.
Yeah, I'm in the middle of a losing bid For student council president.
Losing? How? You're clearly the best.
Right, and if the student body weren't all morons They'd recognize that.
So long scholarships, So long life with declan.
So you're giving up? It doesn't sound like the holly j sinclair I know.
Come on, let's pound the pavement, Shake hands, kiss babies.
All that's left is the debate.
I'm so screwed.
Not yet.
Let's go prep.
You sure? It'll be the perfect distraction.
Plus, you can't go down without a fight.
I want to run, but I don't know where I want to fly So, if you vote for sav your year will be fab! No, no, no, no, no.
You are in so much trouble.
Not now.
When mom and dad find out that you knocked up anya, I'll be able to get away with anything.
Life is gonna be awesome.
Best news ever! You told everyone that you're not pregnant? Better! Thanks to fake baby bhandari We're up in the polls.
It's fake? You guys are so weird.
Anya, there is no baby.
No one needs to know that.
So I should lie? No, you just don't Tell the truth.
I want to win the election because I deserve it.
This is holly j's lie.
If it helps you beat her, isn't that fair? Clare! The surgery, you don't need to do it.
It's really none of your business.
You're so young.
Maybe they'll improve on their own.
Just give it a few years.
They're not gonna change anymore, jenna.
Surgery's the only option.
Clare! Please listen! You don't need to alter your body Just to get attention.
Okay, you know, You lost your chance to tell me what to do with my body When you stole my boyfriend.
I am getting the procedure, And I hope all the guys love it.
Let the debate begin! And here are your two candidates: Holly j sinclair And sav bhandari! All right, your first question is: What part of school do you feel is the most important? Oh yeah.
