Main Plot

Fiona has successfully completed in-patient rehab and she's feeling strong and in control. But the "Bobby trial" is scheduled for the week of her release. Mrs. Coyne comes to Fiona with $100,000 from Bobby. He is willing to give it to Fiona if she drops the charges, which she refuses to do. The hearing is difficult for Fiona, as she is put under pressure by Bobby's lawyer and is asked irrelevant questions, such as if she has ever had a successful relationship. The trial is put on break and Fiona goes out for lunch with her mother and Holly J. There she notices a bottle of wine, which she is tempted to take, but manages to control herself by using a technique in which she distracts herself by describing where she is. She returns to the trial, where Tinsley later confesses Bobby slapped her at a party, though she seems a bit panicked about confessing it. The judgment goes to Fiona, much to Bobby's horror as well as to Tinsley and Fiona's happiness. They decide on a settlement of $250,000 and Bobby has to take anger management classes. Fiona, ecstatic about winning, kisses Holly J. on the mouth and informs Holly J. that she loves her very much. Holly J. enjoyed the kiss so much that she was shocked to see that was the way Fiona felt.


Anya gets stuck with creepy, homophobic bully, Owen, in CPR class. She reports Owen to Mr. Armstrong to have Owen removed from the CPR class. Owen confronts Anya and asks her why she didn't tell him how she felt about him touching her before telling Mr. Armstrong. Anya tells him because he insulted Riley and Zane. After that Owen waited at Anya's locker and told her that he likes her, but Anya told him that she doesn't feel that way about him and probably never will.

Third Plot

Alli is glad to be back at Degrassi. She has the loving support of her parents, and she couldn't care less about Drew. The teachers seem stoked to have her back, which might have something to do with the upcoming standardized math test that determines Mr. Simpson's future. Is this Alli's big shot at redemption?
