Over the past sixteen! Suicide, cancer, weekend-long meth addictions, teen pregnancy — there's a reason why they say that the show "goes there. But above all that, what really drives the show along, is romance. Throughout hundreds of episodes, decades of high school, and seemingly numerous Degrassi Community School students, we've witnessed just about every permutation of romantic couplings you could possibly imagine.
But whereas some pairings are for the ages, others fizzled out before they ever really had the chance to get started or were just terrible to begin with.
And so, in celebration The hook up degrassi love and our Canadian school system, we're ranking the best "Degrassi" couples from worst to best:.
Rick was a physically and emotionally abusive creep who literally put Terri in a coma. It doesn't get much worse than that. Like Rick, Leo was an abuser — watching their relationship gradually turn toxic was harrowing. But unlike Terri, Alli freaking married this dude!
He viciously beat her, but luckily, Alli was eventually able to escape their terrible marriage in one piece. Jay gave Emma a "social disease!
Also, rewatching Jay's "seduction" of Emma really drives home how predatory and creepy it was. I'll never understand why so many Degrassi girls so proudly wore his tacky BJ bracelets. Their relationship really hit the ground running when she gave him sleeping pills and made him take her to a school dance, and it didn't really improve from there. about this couple was good. "The hook up degrassi" virtually The hook up degrassi build up, these two went from friends to having an affair, for no other reason than to throw some extra drama into Peter and Emma's relationship.
It made no sense. Chris was Anya's mom's oncologist, and their HUGE age difference made this pairing more than just a little creepy. He also just straight-up abandoned her to go to Africa, so clearly he could have cared less about actually carrying on a relationship.
Oleander wasn't as much of a d-bag as Dr. On the bright side, he did seem to genuinely care for Paige, getting fired from his job and leaving her a bag of pot when they broke up. They're not going to happen. I'm pretty sure that Sav was technically of legal age when this hook-up went down, but the dynamic was still sketchy AF.
There was some good build-up for these two in Season 14, but their very short-lived relationship went nowhere fast, largely due to Miles' stronger feelings for Maya.
Now that Zoe is out ish as a lesbian, it's highly unlikely that this pairing will be revisited.
