Original Air Date: Monday November 6, 1989
The kids are back to school in a new building. Heather tells Lucy and LD about Erica's summer romance with Jason in California, and swears them to secrecy when she reveals that Erica is no longer a virgin. Erica is unwilling to talk about Jason though, and it's not just a broken heart that is causing her grief. Spike puts Emma in daycare at Degrassi; the rest of the students try to avoid initiation at the hands of the older school bullies, lead by Dwayne, Tabi and Nick. Joey and Caitlin are still a couple, but he's putting his energies into reviving the Zit Remedy, and finding a new name for the band.
