Okay, Paige is not really the most relatable teenager at this point. The way she gets ready for this date and waits at a bougie bar looks like the life of a 30-year-old. But hey, what do I know, I grew up in rural & suburban Alabama.

Anyway, the first outfit is the nice greasy work uniform. Then Paige wears this blue blazer that looks to be a very light/acid washed denim, which she wears over a baby blue blouse and white cami. Her teeth are also super-white. I swear, Paige looks just darling in pastels. She hurriedly gets ready for her date with Matt. She puts in a lot of effort, wearing pointy-toe feels, a black strapless skin-tight dress with a shawl, and a black necklace. She looks amazing but like a real adult. And then Matt dumps her because she showers too much.

Next, on the steps of Degrassi, Paige is wearing layers again – a floral blouse layered over a longer cami – that was such a thing. And some flare jeans, with some pointy-toe shoes that look way too uncomfortable for school. This is where she gets high with Alex before the college fair. I think this is arguably a pretty accurate representation of getting high. It’s hard to explain and hard to portray, especially since it seems to be a different experience for everyone, but I really like how they did it here in this episode.

New episode starts now, and what a morbid title we have here! I know these episode titles all come from 80s songs, but I’m not sure if I know this one or not. Anyway, we kick things off with some nice scenes of Alex and Paige at the movie theatre concession stand. Ah, that brown polyester! Then we move on to her regular clothes. Simplistic as it is, I always adore her style. That short haircut, the huge hoops, cross-body bag, tank tops with bra straps hanging out, and cool shades. Always an icon!

Something about seeing Manny’s mom out of the house, out from under the thumb of Joseph… she looks more empowered, more autonomous, like she does her own stuff out there in the world. She comes to see Manny at school, and it reminds me of when Michelle’s mom came to see her at school, and also Caitlin’s mom. Julietta wears cropped pants and a jacket. I can’t tell for sure but these might be her work clothes – lastly we see her wearing scrubs back at home.

Spinner ends up in a hair net once again, meekly working for The Dot as an excuse to socialize with his former friends.

Spinner looks like such a delinquent these days. I love the hair, as you know, but he does look really untrustworthy. maybe because he is. First he’s slacking at The Dot wearing a leather bracelet and his ball bearing necklace. Next he’s “dressed up” to try to sweet talk his way back into school after getting kicked out. Shoutout to the skater belt and tongue ring. He wears a beanie to break into the school, and again appears in Hot Sauxe’s office in a red button down. Just total loser era right here.

Time for all the miscellaneous grabs from this episode. First is this horrid group at The Dot. Ah, I see from their book that they are a birdwatchers club. They’re dressed awfully rugged to be strolling around a city park gazing at birds. The leader of this group has tiny glasses and skinny eyebrows. We sure liked things small around the eyes back then, didn’t we? Next is this nurse at the blood drive. She’s scary. And she’s wearing scrubs, nothing really to talk about there. Caitlin’s camera dude is wearing a khaki jacket. Blood donors are wearing baggy or flared jeans with white tennies. And here’s Dylan’s new dude – what was his name… Eric or something? I can’t believe I didn’t take note. He’s wearing a black tank and a puka shell necklace. We briefly see a janitor in work clothes – not sure why I included that.

Rando roundup for today includes this like, lady who supervises teachers in training. So she’s watching Mr. O like a hawk. And she does look scary. She wears a brown blazer and has fluffy bleached hair. Next are these girls in the hall, reacting to the accusations about Mr. O. We see some tight layered shirts, a large pearl necklace, and a cross body bag. Then there’s the cops in their little cop outfits. Then this shot on the front steps shows more silhouettes of the time – baggy jeans on dudes and flare jeans on girls.
