Season 10 SummaryEdit

Adam Torres is new to Degrassi, she is transgendered, and her step-brother is Drew.

In I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself (1), Adam is seen as one of the many contestants who are trying to win backstage passes to the Dead Hand concert, by keeping their hand on the truck. As Holly J. and Sav are talking, Sav says that it was worth giving up the tickets to get the $600, Adam then responds saying that it was dumb. Later after Bianca takes her hand off the truck, Eli, Wesley, and Adam are the only 3 Contestants left. Eli quickly gets rid of Wesley, due to Wesley having to go pee. Adam and Eli then decide to split the tickets each getting two instead of four. After they get the tickets, Sav asks them to both help unload the truck. But due to Adam actually being a female, his strength was not able to hold a stereo system and he quickly drops the stereo and ends up busting the trucks tail light. Adam, looking scared, looks at the tail light in horror. Later in the episode, Eli fixes the tail light and Sav is grateful. Sav says, "Wow, I can't believe you got it in there," with Adam responding, "Hah, Yeah thats' what my ex-girlfriend said," with Eli telling him that is gross. Sav then tries to see if the tail light work, as it turns on Adam yells, "Boo Yah!", with Eli saying "Who are you," which questions if they are really friends or not. Adam and Eli then tell him that they need a ride to the concert and that they should take the truck. Sav tells them that he will talk to his dad. Now in the Dot, Adam and Eli are told by Sav that his dad says no, but that he will take the car to the concert without telling his dad.

In I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself (2) Sav, Eli and Adam gather near the J.T Yorke Memorial to find ideas on how to keep Sav's parents busy while they're at the concert. Sav seems uneasy to go but he is determined at the same time. They finally find a ad in the newspaper for a Bollywood show. When Sav gets home he stalls his mom while taking the car keys out her pocket book. He offers them two Bollywood show tickets as an apology. His mother tells his father that Sav is being "sincere" and that he's honestly sorry and she does trust him. At first his father feels he is up to something suspicious but accepts the tickets. When he goes out to pick up Eli and Adam, he seems unsure about going to the concert, thinking about what his mother said about how she really "trusts" him. Once they got to the concert Eli admits, "Think I would touch my dad's MGB? That's why I have my own car." Both Adam and Eli admit that they'd never take a chance to steal their parents car to go to a concert. When Sav checks the time on his iPhone and says they have enough time to get home if they leave now. Then Bianca, obviously drunk, comes in and falls into Sav's arms. Sav trys to calm her down when she says that he's the "guy at school who likes no fun." They were about to leave until they hear the band is going to do an encore. After the encore, he rushes to the car, bringing Bianca because of her being too drunk to drive. While driving home, Adam mentions they wouldn't be able to make it on time. At first, Sav says he's not going to speed, but does anyway since he only has twelve minutes. When the police start following him, Bianca yells "floor it" since she can't be caught drunk again. When Sav pulls over, the officer shines the light into his face saying, "This car has been reported stolen." Sav returns home and gets a lecture from his father. His father insists Sav's been living a perfect life, but Sav explains he doesn't because he's been pushed away from music, Anya, and fun. But his father says he is grounded for two months and deep inside somewhere he knows he is a good boy. When Sav gets back to school Adam and Eli go up to him and Sav apoligizes for ruining their night. Adam insists that they should all play one day and Sav thinks he should just stick with being truthful instead of sneaking around, and Eli agrees. In the last scene Adam admits Sav is his hero.

In Try Honesty Part 1, Eli tries to park his hearse, Morty, and when he gets out Fitz is in the way, Fitz then takes the skull off Eli's car, and chucks it through the fence Eli is pissed. Adam stares sternly at Fitz, and Fitz tells him what he's looking at, and Adam replies not sure. During school Eli tells Clare the dilemma, and she is worried. While, walking in the hallway to class they see Adam get pushed into a locker by Fitz. Eli and Clare break it up, then the three of them try to come up with a plan to stop him, after he leaves, but Clare thinks if Eli'd just ignore him things would be better. The next morning, Eli and Clare are walking into school, and Eli goes up to Fitz, and asks for an apology, and they can go back to ignoring and hating each other like they usually do. Fitz says he's sorry and then kicks Eli in his area. Clare tries to help Eli while he's on the ground in pain, and Fitz just laughs. Later on, Eli tells Adam what Fitz did while they're at the Dot, they then confront Fitz and his group and offer to make him a fake ID after Eli shows him his, and if they make him one they leave him alone. Fitz agrees to it, they make a deal. While at school Eli and Adam make Fitz a fake ID, but they make his name the one of the most wanted criminals in the area.

In Try Honesty Part 2, Adam is with Eli at the beginning of the day, seing Fitz, and he's pumped up for the fake ID. Adam watchs Eli give Fitz the fake ID, he once again makes sure that it that they should do what they're about to do. Later on, Adam is still worried along with Clare about what will happen with Eli and the fake ID. They wait at Adam's locker and look at each other sternly whne they're nervous about Eli's plan to pay Fitz back.

In You Don't Know My Name Part 2, Adam gives his step bro Drew homework help, and advice on getting Alli back, since he was a girl before. Later on, Adam tells Alli to go see "Jenna" in the photo booth, but he really tells Alli to go see Drew, and they end up getting back together.

While trying to discreetly carry them off, he bumps into Clare and drops his tampons. To avoid suspicion, he hands them to Clare, who pretends they're hers. Later when confronting Clare and Eli (who Clare told about the incident) about what happend he tells them the truth about how he is an FTM (Female-To-Male) transgender person and they take it normally, and this news does not seem to affect there friendship in any way. Adam tries to talk to Bianca a second time, which seems to work out well, until she makes physical contact with his chest.

Mrs. Torres demands that Adam be transferred to another school and rants on about transgender students in high school getting death threats and being assaulted. Mr. Simpson informs them that Fitz and Owen had been suspended, Adam would be forced to walk to class with a teacher, and Adam would need to use the handicap bathroom. Adam is being walked down the hall by a teacher and being gawked at. The teacher allows him to sit down with Clare and Eli, who seem to not have a problem with Adam being transgender. Adam informs Clare and Eli that his family has never really accepted him and that he's going to have to change back to "Gracie" during his grandmother's visit. Adam arrives at remedial gym, where Bianca, the one who outed Adam, is telling about how she accidentally touched Adam's boobs to listeners. Adam approaches Bianca and asks her if she'll still be his dance partner. Bianca denies being a lesbian and Adam says neither is he and that they both need partners, to which Bianca says that Adam needs therapy and threatens Adam, walking away. The gym teacher approaches Adam and asks him who his partner is. Adam lies and says that his ankle is ripped and the teacher lets him sit out. Adam is, then seen with his mother shopping. He picks out a plaid guys shirt and asks if he can wear that to dinner. Mrs. Torres shakes her head and picks out a white girls' shirt. Adam says that he's thought about "introducing Adam to Grams." Mrs. Torres responds that if that's the case, Adam shouldn't come to dinner. Mrs. Torres admits that she's scared Adam will start hurting himself again and Adam denies doing it in a long time. At dinner, Grams, Mrs. Torres, Mr. Torres, and Drew are all looking at the menu. Grams asks where "Gracie" is and Mrs. Torres lies and says that "Gracie" had other appointments. Adam suddenly appears, dressed as "Gracie." Everyone, aside from the unknowing Grams, is shocked. Grams shows everybody pictures of young Drew and a young Adam as Gracie. "Gracie" announces that she has something to say, but Mrs. Torres begs "Gracie" not to say anything. Grams gives "Gracie" a questioning look and "Gracie" says that she's taking ballroom dancing class. Adam is sitting alone in his room, looking at his arm, which is covered in burn marks. Drew knocks on the door and asks to be let in. Adam ignores him and unwraps the bandages he used to hide his breasts. As Gracie, Adam appears at remedial gym class and Bianca makes a snide comment. The teacher sends her to the principal's office. After class, "Gracie" is sitting outside, lighting a hair clip with a lighter and burning himself when Clare walks by and sees what "Gracie" is doing. "Gracie" quickly throws the clip on the table and presses her hand against her newly acquired burn mark. "Gracie" says that if she's Gracie, everything's easier. Clare comforts her and says that she doesn't have to be Gracie if it doesn't make her happy. "Gracie" says that it makes everyone else happier, so she has to change. Clare tells "Gracie" that she doesn't need to change, everyone else does. Clare escorts Gracie, now deciding to go back to Adam, back inside. Adam, dressed as a guy, gets into his mother's car and asks what they see: a girl or a boy. Mrs. Torres admits that she sees him as a girl. Adam begs for his mother to see him as her son, not her daughter. Adam is lighting a bonfire with Eli and Clare when Drew, along with Mrs. and Mr. Torres, appear.
