Cue the freaking waterworks. I can barely handle this episode. Dwayne dons his Degrassi jacket at school, and then makes the bold decision to attend the dance. He wears a brown suit and skinny black tie. He’s just so darling and my heart just breaks that not only is he facing his disease, he’s doing it alone because everyone shuns him. Until, of course, Tabi asks him to dance and then I’m not sure what happens after that because I’m always crying.
What an amazing episode. This is where stuff gets really real. All Dwayne’s fears are confirmed when his test shows he’s HIV positive. He dresses rather conservatively to the doctor’s office, wearing a brown button down. Then, for the rest of the episode, I just noticed that Dwayne has ditched his Degrassi jacket. Maybe it’s a symbolic of a stripped down version of him, him losing himself or his identity. Or maybe it’s just him not caring anymore.
Dwayne cracks me up in this episode. First, he’s telling Ms. Avery, “Don’t have a bird!” which is now one of our favorite sayings in my household. The next picture is his face getting chewed out by Caitlin – it’s hilarious. Anyway, fashion-wise, he’s wearing what he usually wears, except this time with a Raiders hat.
