Duana Taha (story)
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.
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.
- This episode reveals that Holly J. is Heather Sinclair's sister.
- This episode is named after the song "It's Tricky" by Run-DMC.
- This is Manny's 100th episode. She was the first character to appear in 100 episodes.
- When Manny mentions that Holly J. and Heather share the same DNA, that statement becomes false in Season 11 when it is revealed that Holly J. is adopted (found out in U Don't Know). Holly J. did not realize that she was adopted until then.
- This is the first episode of the series in which Craig Manning has been mentioned since Rock This Town.
