I wasn't sure how much I would like Awakening. I was hoping that it wouldn't play out that Mira stays with Danny even though she wants Skylar. It actually was better than I thought. When Mira woke up from her coma she is in love with Sky. She wants to be with him, not Danny. Coincidentally Danny also met someone while Mira was in the coma, Melissa. They are just friends, but they became close in the hospital.
Danny is so happy when Mira wakes up, but unfortunately Mira just keeps shying away from him. She wants to be with Sky, but he doesn't want to hurt Danny like that. Plus he thinks she will go back to Danny after a while once she remembers what she had with him. Mira and Sky do have one evening where they almost go all the way, but they both stop knowing it would never work. They would both feel too guilty doing that to Danny.
After that, Sky gives her up and wants her to try again with Danny. Mira does, and it goes okay for a few weeks. They start dating again, and even though it is good it is not like with Sky. She looks back on her past and notices she had always been close to Skylar. In photos she is closer to him than Danny, etc. One night she tries to have sex with Danny and well...it just doesn't seem right to either of them. That is it for them, it just doesn't work.
Finally a little while after that Sky shows up at her place and asks her on a date. They get together and it is so nice. Now I don't really know what she was like with Danny before, but she seems like she fits perfectly with Sky. They are so great together, and into the same things. It was nice, though then at the end you have that Danny is now seeing Melissa. Of course, you had to have everything get wrapped up perfectly.
