Except Rick dies at the end of the episode. So who's that supposed to be in the video? The actor? A ghost? Presumably it's up to the Canadian prime minister, or possibly the queen of Britain, to decide what's canon in the Degrassi-verse.
Beverly Hills 90210 -- Donna Ends A Hostage Situation By Making Out With The Gunman
For those who either weren't alive in the '90s or had lives in the outside world that didn't revolve around television, let us attempt to explain Beverly Hills 90210. It was essentially a prime-time soap opera in which fully grown adults pretended to be teenagers, and America absolutely loved it. Don't believe us? Just ask one of the 90210 dolls they made for some reason.
Over the course of the show, that group of lovable teens was subjected to every trauma you could imagine. Dylan's dad was blown up by a car bomb, David's buddy accidentally shot himself, and Kelly became addicted to everything a human being could conceivably become addicted to. Still, one seventh-season episode went particularly nutty.
"We Interrupt This Program" finds Brandon and Donna working at the college TV station when one of their colleagues, Evan, admits that he's obsessed with (and stalking) Donna. When she doesn't reciprocate his creepy advances, he pulls out a gun and holds everyone hostage! It's like Die Hard, but with worse acting and way more pastel colors.
