It's Tricky is the fourth episode of Season 7 of Degrassi: The Next Generation. It aired on October 19, 2007 in the United States, and on January 28, 2008 in Canada.

Summary

Ashley has been a "sidekick" for way too long and can no longer tolerate it, so she restarts her music career. But with Jimmy as her partner, she's starting to feel, once again, like a "sidekick."

Mia doesn't mind sharing a locker with someone as long as they aren't the newest mean girl, Holly J., and both of their eyes are set on Sav. Only one can win his heart, or maybe neither.

Main Plot

When Craig's album Of Two Minds comes out, he becomes the newest rock star, but Ashley discovers that he used one of her songs and she isn't too happy about this. With support and help from Jimmy, she restarts her music career, but things don't go so well.

Ashley has played the role of "sidekick" for a long time and doesn't want anyone standing in her way - especially Jimmy. She decides to enter a talent contest and she records a song called Tell Me Lies, with Jimmy.

After the song receives great popularity, Griffin has them play at a club. Ashley decides to let Jimmy play alone because she knows people think she sings terribly. The two are asked for a demo, so Ashley makes it, but deletes Jimmy's rap.

Sub Plot

Mia doesn't mind sharing a locker with someone, just as long as that someone is anyone but Holly J., Degrassi's newest, meanest addition from Lakehurst. What doesn't help is the fact that they're both lusting after Sav, the hottest Lakehurst guy. How is this going to end? Badly. Can the girls just call a truce? No way.
