The Shep is floored at how much Riley’s improved. Things seem like they can’t get any better for Riley, except for the fact that he’s keeping some serious secrets. Not only is he repressing the fact that he’s gay, Riley is also using anabolic steroids. He uses them and girls to complete his “real man” image but when his social life leaves him unsatisfied, he is driven to take more steroids as an “antidote” to his gayness. With the steroids’ side effects ramping up – Riley begins to lose his temper and acts out at school. Will he be able to maintain this straight jock persona he’s created? Or will his efforts to be someone else lead him to crash into his true self and hurt the people he cares about? Danny and Derek both have it bad for Leia. How will that affect their friendship? The eighth season of Degrassi: The Next Generation depicted the first semester of the 2007-2008 school year. This season depicts the lives of a group of high school freshmen, juniors, seniors, and college freshmen as they deal with some of the challenges and issues young adults face such as sex, sexual identity, drug use, financial troubles, child molestation, mental illness, cyber-bullying, sexism, hostage situations, careers and relationships.
