Free Fallin' (2) is the fifteenth episode of Season 6 of Degrassi: The Next Generation. It aired on April 4, 2007 in Canada and on July 6, 2007 in the United States.


Paige's life at Banting is becoming a not-so-heavenly trip. It's drama after drama after drama. One by one she is failing grades, dealing with issues about the dorm fire, and even more panic attacks. Instead of letting her friends or someone know how she feels, she bottles it all up and throws it in the sea waiting for it to just go away. Darcy and Peter start dating after Darcy gives into Peter's advances.

Main Plot

With her degree in jeopardy thanks to her failing grades, and the little issue of a dramatic dorm fire, Paige develops a recurring panic attack at the mere mention of all things Banting. She slinks home to Toronto with her tail between her legs - but nobody can know the truth about what happened. Despite rising panic attacks and friends who just might understand, Paige is committed to keeping her secret - no matter what.

Sub Plot

Meanwhile Darcy gives in to Peter's advances, and the pair start dating.
