A shocking plot twist on tonight's Degrassi
OK, here we go again with a SPOILER WARNING. Do not, do not, do not read on or scroll down if you don't want to find out what happens on tonight's episode of Degrassi: The Next Generation.
I remember watching the original Degrassi, back in the 50s or whenever it was originally broadcast (I feel old). I was never a regular viewer, but I remember thinking that the show was better than most teen shows, better written, with a realistic cast. And then tackled some serious topics: sex, drugs, violence, relationships. But I don't think they ever had anything like what happens on tonight's show.
A major cast member is murdered in the last five minutes of the show tonight.
Shane Kippel Ryan Cooley) is stabbed after leaving a party, retaliation for a confrontation he had with someone earlier in the season. No other cast member except Kippel knew the twist was coming, and everyone was shocked. Kippel has been on the show since the beginning.
The episode airs tonight at 8pm on Noggin.
