How should clare handle her shocking news?

Clare (Ep.1409)

Um, what just happened? Drew is not the father? Does that mean Eli is? Let’s think about this for a second…

Clare broke up with Eli and then had sex with Drew. Clare then got back together with Eli only to later learn that she was pregnant with Drew’s baby and when Drew’s mom asked if a paternity test was necessary, Clare said absolutely not.

Well, apparently Clare forgot to check the dates because on tonight’s episode of ‘Degrassi‘ the doctor not only revealed that Clare would be having a baby boy but that she was also 16 weeks pregnant. We don’t have an actual timeline to calculate the time between Clare having sex with Eli and then having sex with Drew but it turns out the soon-to-be teen mom thought she was only 12 weeks pregnant, not 16, which means Drew isn’t the father and Eli is!

Clare and Drew (Ep.1409)

Now before you get excited, remember, this news is both good and bad…

Clare loves Eli and now they can finally have the future they’ve always wanted, granted the future came a lot sooner than planned, but all that matters is Clare and Eli still has a chance at love! Our only concern is that Eli was furious with Clare for lying to him and for sleeping with Drew. Will he be able to forgive her or even believe her? Is it possible we’re in for some super awkward e-clare co-parenting?

What about Drew? Drew has given up so much—including his relationship with Becky—to be supportive of Clare and the baby. Sooner or later he’s going to find out he’s not the father and we can’t imagine he’s going to be happy about it. Relieved maybe, but certainly not happy.

No matter how you slice it, this isn’t going to be easy for Clare. How do you think she should break the news? How do you think Drew and Eli are going to take it? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
