The students of Palos Hills High School have come along way since Jenna Hamilton and her friends started their freshman year. Now, they're standing on the precipice of one of the most daunting accomplishments ever, graduation, and it's crazy to see just how far they have all come.
Season five, the last and final season of MTV's hit-show Awkward., premieres tonight. When we chatted with Greer Grammer — who portrays Lissa on the show — she dished all about the episodes to come, including the one about senior prom.
"Lissa doesn't get into much [trouble] but she gets pretty stressed while at prom. Not before. When she shows up, it's all pink and beautiful and she has rainbow sorbet for drinks but no one else likes the prom," Greer dishes EXCLUSIVELY to M. "She gets really frustrated with her friends because it's like an amazing time for her and she feels pretty and it's all awesome but her friends hate it."
YIKES! Sounds like prom is going to be dramatic and one for the books! Looking back on the past four seasons though, there have been tons of unforgettable moments. Which one is Greer's favorite?
"Honestly, I would have to go back to season two for my favorite show plot line," Greer reveals. "The whole thing with Matty, Jake, and Jenna... That was when the love triangle was so prominent! Jenna is dating Jake, Matty is trying to get her back... It's fun and they they get in that fistfight! It's just crazy."
That was definitely one of our favorite moments, too. Who can forget when Jenna's boyfriend, family, and all her friends threw her a surprise party, only to be greeted by the sight of Jenna kissing another guy?
What an iconic moment. But let's throw it back even further than season two. What was it about the project that really drew Greer to the script and compelled her to want to get involved in the first place?
"The writing for sure," she admits. "I read the pilot and it was so funny and real. It was something that hadn't really been done back in 2011. Back then everything was supernatural like the Twilight movies and everything was vampires and stuff like that. So it felt refreshing and so real and I feel like that's why, not just me, but so many people fell in love with it."
You totally nailed it, Greer! The writing and the way each of the characters speak is absolutely one of the main reasons that we became obsessed with the show. We'd be lying if we said we weren't sad to see it go. Because we absolutely are and we'll miss our friends from Palos Hills High.
