Breakaway (1) is the third episode of Season 10 of Degrassi.


Fiona turns to Declan for support, but her flair for the dramatic leaves him doubting her story. Meanwhile, Holly J.'s plan to sabotage Sav blows up in her face—will it cost her the title she holds so dear? And is Clare seriously getting a boob job? Jenna thinks so...and tells K.C.

Main Plot

Fiona talks to Declan on the phone while she's on the school roof.

Fiona Coyne is tired of Bobby. She decides that the only place to hide from him is on the roof of Vanderbilt Prep. Declan learns that she is on the roof from Tinsley and calls her. Fiona tells him that she's scared and he tells her to get down from the roof. She does so and goes home. She takes off the makeup covering her black eye and darkens it with eyeshadow. She then puts the pics on twitter, and goes to school. Declan and Bobby see them and Declan tells him to stop being aggressive towards his sister. Bobby tells Declan that Fiona is a nutcase.

When Fiona arrives at school, Declan is confused when he doesn't see her black eye. She tells him that she darkened it a bit but it was true. Because of this: Declan doesn't believe her anymore. Later on, Holly J. gets a call from Declan and they talk about Fiona. Holly J. tells Declan to trust Fiona and be there for her. Declan listens to Holly J. and confronts Fiona at home. Fiona shows him bruises on her legs from Bobby. Declan tells her that he believes her because he is her sister and because Holly J. told him to. Fiona says she misses Holly J., and after Declan leaves, Fiona calls to make plane reservations. Later that day, Holly J. is surprised to see Fiona at Degrassi, and they go to the Dot and talk. Fiona tells her that she just missed Toronto and everyone.

They go back to Degrassi for the election, and Fiona ignores her phone when her mom calls. Her mom then comes to Degrassi, and says she knew she was there. Fiona is forced to go to The Dot with her mom, and tell her all that has happened. Fiona tells her about Bobby, and that she didn't want to tell her because she thinks she's a drama queen. Mrs. Coyne says she won't let the bastard get away with it even if they're friends with his parents. She tells Fiona she's going to call a lawyer and sue him, but Fiona doesn't want to go back to Manhattan.

Sub Plot

Sav is not giving up with the election, and is going strong with Anya. But, when Holly J. hires Declan to post on a famous blog about Anya's "pregnancy", Anya has to tell Sav the truth. Sav wants to break up but Anya


changes his mind by telling him that she didn't want to lose him again, and that over the summer she cried everyday because of him, and if he wants to win he'll have to lie and say that she is still pregnant. And that it was Holly J.'s idea to make him lose. Sav stays with Anya and continues to lie. Before the election, Holly J. confronts Anya about Sav saying that she backstabbed her and that she was supposed to be on her side. Anya tells her that she changed her mind, and that Sav is all hers now. At the election, Holly J. basically says she wants to be all about education, but Sav's speech was about being fun and full of life. He also lies and tells everyone that he is going through a tough time with being an upcoming father. Later in the episode, Sav wins the election because of lies, enraging Holly J. 

Mr. Simpson announces Sav as the winner.
