Paige gets a job as a fashion assistant, but all Alex is doing is laying on the couch. Alex had completed all of her extra credits at Degrassi and moved in with Paige, Marco, and Ellie. She seemed to lack ambition, mostly sleeping in day by day. She volunteers to be Paige's driver until Paige can get her licensed renewed, eager to spend more time with her, but Alex ends up abandoning her and smokes with Jay. She tries to make it up to Paige by showing off one of the dresses she was given to look after, but this only causes more tension between the two. Paige has her make it up by sending out chocolates, but Alex decides not to do this since Paige's job was more like being a maid. The two have a fallout at Paige's job, where they break up. The next day Paige packs up all of Alex's stuff. Alex says she'll be staying with her mom's cousin in Ajax, and that she has other options. Paige and she knew it was time to end it since Alex felt alone and left behind by Paige's career plans, but that didn't make it any less painful for them to split.
Manny and Damian get back together after their recent breakup. Manny wants Lakehurst and Degrassi to have the same squads and activities, but Damian doesn't. They break up, and Manny is accused of being racist by Holly J. Chantay, and Anya believe the rumors. Damian and Manny debate whether to merge the Degrassi and Lakehurst sports, clubs, and organizations together, or leave them separate. It is voted that the sports, clubs, and organizations merge.
