Sub Plot

Eli walks up to Becky and states his concern on doing a musical for the play, but Becky says not too worry and tells him what time auditions start, also mentioning that she herself was never worried he wouldn't come because she prayed for him, and that the Lord hadn't let her down yet. Becky and Eli are later seen watching auditions for the play and we see Tori on stage singing. Tristan goes on to the stage and quotes Romeo and Juliet. While Becky is unimpressed, Eli is amazed, wanting Tristan in the play.

After Becky and Eli are alone, Becky claims Tristan can't be in the play because, although he seems sweet, he also seems "confused". Eli slightly understands what she means and is upset, causing him to be short tempered with Becky until she leaves. Eli expresses his anger to Clare, who tells him to calm down and give her a chance. She explains to him that he can do what Christopher Nolan has done with The Dark Knight and take something overplayed and make it feel new again. She then holds his hand sympathetically.

Eli is then seen viewing Tori and Tristan's audition tapes when Tristan stands up to Eli later about how he feels he should have been called back. Eli tells Tristan that Becky didn't believe he was right for the play, but Eli doesn't care, and wants to make him apart of it, turning the play into a homosexual play called Romeo and Jules behind Becky's back.

When Becky finds out, she quits the drama theater, explaining she will not be apart of a play that treats homosexuality like it is normal. Eli is shocked but happy. Becky leaves saying, "This isn't right!", with which Eli replies, "Welcome to Degrassi...".
