Tears Dry On Their Own (1) is the seventeenth episode of Season 10 of Degrassi. It aired on August 16, 2010.


Jenna ends up getting sick at her audition, but that won't stop her. Meanwhile, Connor sneaks out to meet his online friend, and it turns out she's not so friendly after all. In addition, Anya tries to get Zane and Riley back together, but will she succeed?

Main Plot

Alli thinks Jenna is pregnant when she starts showing symptoms, but she is too worried about her audition for Next Teen Star to take these symptoms seriously. When K.C. fails to be supportive of her potential teen stardom, Jenna gets stage fright and runs off to throw up during the audition. K.C. eventually shows up late and tells her to march in and try again. She successfully wins the judges over, and when she returns home she decides to take a pregnancy test with Alli by her side. After a long three minutes of waiting, the result is positive and Jenna discovered she is pregnant.

Sub Plot

Connor is still talking to his friend on Realm of Doom and refuses to meet other girls online with Dave and Wesley. He then runs off to meet her and she invites him over but Dave and Wesley find him and Mr. Simpson takes him home.

Third Plot

Riley didn't want to hang out with Owen and the rest of the football team because he knows that they're homophobic. But when Owen made a gay joke in front of Zane and Riley, Riley didn't get offended but Zane did. Riley asks Zane to hang out but Zane was still mad that Riley doesn't know how effective gay jokes can be. So Zane rejects the offer and says "Until football Riley and gay Riley come together, I think you're better off hanging with the team." Riley doesn't have anybody to hangout with and approaches Anya and tells her that it's been ages since they hung out but Anya wasn't sure if Riley would rather hang out with her than with the football team. Anya tells Riley that her mom has cancer. Both of them plan to hangout and do homework while waiting for Anya's mom.
