Degrassi: 12.01 & 02 “Come As You Are”

Season 12 Episodes 1 & 2
Airdates: July 16 & 17, 2012

This is the 12th season premiere. I said I was going to stay away from recapping the summer episodes, but I also once said I was done recapping Degrassi. But the fall premiere “Building a Mystery” had too many moments that confused me, so I need to look at some summer episodes. Plus, this episode was named after a Nirvana song. I’ll do a few more summer eps, this I promise you.

Like with “I Want It That Way”, I have written this as if I was posting to Twitter as it aired.

New school year. Torres bros w/ new kid named Dallas #dallasthenewkid
