Paige gets a job as a fashion assistant, while Alex is busy being lazy. Although when Paige's license needs to get renewed, Alex volunteers to be her driver. But not everybody can keep promises. Meanwhile, Manny and Damian get back together. Rumors spill about Manny being racist.
Alex 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.
Alex 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.
Alex & Paige 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.
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.
