Scream (2) is the twentieth episode as well as the second part of the finale of the Showdown summer event for Season 12 of Degrassi. It aired on August 16, 2012.

Main Plot[]

On opening night for Romeo and Jules, Tristan is nowhere to be found, causing a panic for Eli and Adam, who are forced to cast an apologetic Becky as a last minute understudy (see Plot C). Tori, Maya, and Zig go searching for him, instead finding Dallas, Luke, and Owen, the second of whom is making fun of a ringtone on a stolen phone, which Tori and Owen immediately recognize. She and Owen grill Luke, the latter physically assaulting him, for answers regarding Tristan's whereabouts. They find him locked in a storage room, where the four reveal that they do love him, and that a special someone will come his way sooner rather than later. Still shaky about having his first kiss be on stage, Tori kisses Tristan, and the two make it to the show at the last second. The musical is met with a standing ovation. As Tristan is swooning over the success of the play, Fab flirts with him, causing him to lose himself even further. After the play, Clare reveals her successes regarding Asher (see Plot B) to Eli, and the two reconcile, sharing a kiss.

Sub Plot[]

Clare wants get revenge on Asher with the help of Katie. Clare concocts a plan to pose nude in photos, which she and Katie will then plant on his office computer. As they make their way to the office, however, Clare ironically 


remembers advice that Asher himself gave, realizing that even if Asher goes to jail for having her underage pictures, she will still be remembered as having taken them to begin with, thus dashing any further chances of being a journalist. As she and Katie leave, they see Jennifer, who tells them to leave. Clare tearfully admits the truth to her before doing so; she stops them shortly thereafter and reveals that she too was harassed by Asher as an intern, and offers to go to the police alongside Clare and Katie, thus exposing him.

Third Plot[]

Adam decries Becky and Luke for their hypocritical behaviour towards members of the LGBT community, angrily 


telling them that what they espouse promotes hatred and intolerance. Becky, feeling awfully, realizes that her actions may be the reason why Tristan is missing, although she also correctly suspects Luke as being involved. She decides that, as a penance to everyone she hurt, she needs to volunteer as a last minute understudy for the play, not playing 'Juliet,' but dressing in drag as 'Jules.' While Tristan makes the musical at the last second, she still joins the chorus for the reprise, thanking Adam for what he's done for her.
