OMG Moments from Season Three of Degrassi: Next Class

Degrassi: Next Class Top 10 OMG Moments

Season three was no different from the last. From the very beginning, the season opens up with the aftermath of last season's bus crash. From start to finish the show grabs your attention and doesn't let go. In no time more OMG moments begin to pop up.  I'll be talking about the most shocking, funny, and emotional OMG moments. This goes without saying, but there will be major spoilers ahead.

OMG Moment: Coming Out

Zoe is the new President of Degrassi student council. Degrassi has invited students from Syria to attend school with them this semester. Zoe wants to welcome the new students and make them feel comfortable. As President, she decides to turn the LBGTQ meeting room into a safe space to the new students.

The LBGTQ students feel they're unfairly treated because of their sexuality and Zoe tells them that's not the case because she is a lesbian.  Last season Zoe struggled to come to terms with her sexuality. This season she comes out in front of the and not only tells her circle of friends but everyone around. This becomes a problem shortly because she still hasn't told her mother she is gay.

OMG Moment: #TBT

Degrassi OMG Moment Lola posts a #TBT of her ex-boyfriend.
Lola posts a #TBT of her ex-boyfriend.
Although I can understand where Lola is coming from, she still definitely violated girl code with this one.  Lola and Tiny broke up shortly before the end of last season (about four months ago in the show's time) Tiny started dating one of Lola's best friends Shay. Lola did give them her blessing, but always felt hurt by seeing them two together. Furthermore, Lola doesn't enjoy hearing how cute Tiny and Shay are together.
Lola decides to post a picture of her and Tiny on her Hastygram and thought it was okay because she was talking about her hair in the photo's caption. Of course, Shay did not take this too well. Lola and Shay go back and forth sending subliminal indirect messages about each other. Chaos ensues quickly, and it leads to a mock trail between the class about on if Lola was justified in posting the photo.

OMG Moment: "As Long As I Don't Wife Her, What's Wrong With A Little Third Base Action."

Degrassi OMG Moment Zig and Esme skip class to fool around.

Zig and Esme have been seeing each other over the summer, and their relationship has been getting very intense. Esme is a very promiscuous girl and has earned quite a reputation for himself around the school. Zig doesn't seem to care much about the rumors he's heard about her and continues to date her. Things get even more intense when they decide to skip class one morning and fool around in the parking lot. Even though Zig and his friends, often talk about Esme behind her back Zig still really likes being with her.
Esme offers to tutor Zig in math, and while he is away from his phone, Esme gets a chance to look at the group chat him and his friends are having. Esme is hurt by the things she's reading about herself, but what hurts the most is reading Zig's text saying "As long as I don't wife her, what's wrong with getting a little third base action." Esme is in tears when confronting Zig about what he said. She throws the phone at Zig and seeing as she's "Easy Esme" she offers to take a random student to the parking lot. Zig and Esme's relationship is over at this point.

OMG Moment: "Girls like you are ruining it for us."

Degrassi OMG Moment Lola confronts Yael about her video.
Lola confronts Yael about her video.
Yael and her friends are running a youtube channel. They haven't exactly become viral yet, so they are trying to expand their audience. The guys suggest that Yael should film makeup and fashion tutorial videos. Yael isn't must of a girly girl she's more into comic books and video games. She doesn't see why anyone would be interested in wasting their time doing their hair and makeup. Although she hates doing it, she knows it will help generate views for the channel.
While filming the video, Yael loses her cool and decides to rant about the uselessness of putting on makeup and wearing tight dresses. Yael calls girls who care about this stuff dumb, and her rant is uploaded on youtube. The video causes a lot of drama, and the comments on the video are mostly negative. Many girls of Degrassi watched the video and now confronted Yael on why she is insulting women. Yael thinks her video was empowering, but she doesn't realize condescending she is being.

OMG Moment: "Monthly Visitor."

Degrassi OMG Moment Tiny's gives Shay the worst gift ever
Shay is not pleased with the gift Tiny got her.

During cross country practice Shay just can't seem to get ahead of Esme. No matter how hard she tries to run Esme is just always a few feet ahead. Feeling down Shay tries to find comfort with her boyfriend, Tiny. When Shay gets up from Tiny's lap, he notices she left a stain on his pants. She was on her period. Esme couldn't pass up the chance to make fun of Shay. Shay shrugs it off at first, but things begin to get increasingly worst.
Tiny being the caring boyfriend that he is has decided to do something special for Shay and buy her a gift. Tiny bought Shay pads. On the one hand, it's a very thoughtful gift from Tiny, on the contrary, it's incredibly embarrassing. Also, Tiny told her that Esme said it would be a good idea to do it. Hearing this enrages Shay and decides to get revenge on Esme. Shay pours red paint all over Esme's chair ruining her skirt. Of course, this gets Shay in huge trouble.

OMG Moment: "Porn With Friends."

Hunter, Baaz, and Vijay decide to have a guys night, so Hunter tells Yael he's sick, and she shouldn't come over. The guys get into an argument about the dynamic of their group being different since Hunter and Yael started dating. Baaz feels increasingly jealous lately because he once had a crush on Yael. Baaz tells Hunter he is lucky to be rich and has a girlfriend. To prove that he is better than Hunter in some aspect, the boys decide to have a contest to see who has the biggest penis and in walks Yael.
Yael is angry with Hunter for lying to her about being sick. The guys tell her they had to lie because they were going to watch porn together. Yael decides to join them, and the awkwardness begins. The guys struggle to watch with Yael as she talks negatively about the movie. Finally, the guys choose to tell Yael what's going on. They tell her they are going to measure themselves, and she volunteers to judge. Which is somewhat awkward for Hunter not only will she see his friend's penises, but it will be the first time she has seen his.

OMG Moment: "Light to dark like a sunset."

Lola and Miles have been getting close to each other this season. While Lola, Frankie (Miles' sister), and Shay were having a girls night at Frankie's house, the sexual tension between the two began to bubble over. Shay has Tiny, and Frankie has Jonah leaving Lola alone to herself most of the night. Lola goes to Mile's room to talk to him, and the two end up sleeping together. Lola assures Miles that the sex between them won't change their relationship. Although, Lola's feelings for Miles have grown after having sex.
After a few days Lola, Frankie, and Shay are all in the bathroom talking about having sex for the first time. Frankie pulls out her birth control pills and tosses them in the trash feeling they're a waste because she and Jonah won't be having sex anytime soon. Lola notices the birth control pills and tells Frankie she is taking them in the wrong order. She tells Frankie the pills should be taken "from light to dark like a sunset." Frankie informs her that's not the right order you take them. Lola is shocked by this revelation and realizes she could be pregnant. Frankie and Shay buy pregnancy tests for Lola, and Lola lies about the results to them.

OMG Moment: "Abortion."

Shortly after finding out she was pregnant Lola decides to get an abortion. She's too young to be a mother and wants to go to college, so the decision seems like the only option for her. Lola wants to keep this a secret from everyone in school and only tell Yael about it because she has no one to go with her. Lola is worried about the aftermath of getting an abortion; will she still be able to have kids, will it hurt, will she feel depressed, and could she die. The doctor explains all of this to her and eases her worries and tells her she's "not even the first sixteen-year-old he's seen today."
After getting the abortion, Lola wants to put the past behind her. Unfortunately, things don't go as planned. During her presentation, she projects her phone screen to the class and everyone sees she has been googling about getting an abortion. News travels around the school fast, and Miles finally finds out. Lola never told Miles she was pregnant or getting an abortion. Hearing this news was shocking to Miles. Potentially fathering a child while his boyfriend is in a coma isn't something he wants on his plate right now. Miles and Lola agree to distance themselves from each other.

OMG Moment: "I Gotta Go Home and Change My Password."

Degrassi OMG Moment Frankie Left Crying After Jonah Breaks Up With Her.

Jonah has been becoming distant to Frankie. Lately, this causes her to think something is going on. Frankie tries anything she can to get Jonah to pay attention to her more. Frankie buys tickets to a concert that Jonah wants to go to, she dresses sexier at school, she takes a bunch of selfies and posts them on social media, and she even tries to have sex with him. Nothing Frankie does, gets Jonah's attention, and she has a feeling Jonah might be cheating on her with other girls.
Frankie's brother Hunter is a computer whiz, and she asks him to hack into Jonah's social media accounts so she can see what he's been doing lately. Frankie looks through Jonah's inbox and sees he is not cheating he's busy with the play and AA. Frankie was unaware Jonah was a recovering addict. Jonah wanted to keep things about him a secret because he didn't want Frankie to think negatively about him. Jonah felt bad about treating Frankie this way, so he brought her flowers and came to apologize. When apologizing Jonah notices is inbox is open on Frankie's laptop. Hacking into his account was a total invasion of privacy, and he leaves Frankie and tears.

The final episode of the season was also one of the most emotional episodes of the whole series. Maya has been struggling to find some normalcy after recovering from the bus crash. She no longer wanted to hang out with her friends or write music. Maya became increasingly interested in death. She has begun setting up morbid photoshoots which began to worry her friends and her mother.
Feeling that she would never be the same again, she decided to get in one of the school buses and take handfuls of prescription medication. The pills took a long time to take effect, and in her dazed state she goes up on the roof. Zig and Esme go up on the roof looking for a quiet spot to be alone. They find Maya motionless laying down foaming out of her mouth. Esme has been in this situation before and told Zig to call for help.

This list contains just a small handful of OMG moments, but trust me season three is filled with more. Check out season three of Degrassi: Next Class streaming now on Netflix.
