Friendship History

Season 1

In #YesMeansYes, Hunter, Vijay, Yael and Baaz are in gym class when Vijay is hit in the face with a basketball during intramurals, so Hunter replaces Vijay in the game and his friends cheer for him. They're together when Tristan tells them that the gamer club has been approved by the Degrassi Student Council.

In #ButThatsNoneOfMyBusiness, he, Yael, Hunter, and Vijay participate in the video gaming competition.

In #NotAllMen, they both compete against another video game team and barely win. The video game club dresses up in cosplay, and make a commercial to try and raise the money they need to go to Regionals. However, the club is shut down anyway due to complaints of misogyny and celebrating sexual violence, leaving its members upset. Vijay, Yael, and Baaz all agree to follow and help Hunter with his revenge because no one has ever fought for them before.


Hunter's "kill list."

In #SorryNotSorry, they were both on Hunter's list of the people that he might hurt.

Season 2

In #CheckYourPrivilege, In class, Yael presents their secret app to the class and tells Baaz and Vijay to beat it, Baaz tells them that their app is boring. Baaz and Vijay present their brown cloud app to the class. Baaz bets Yael that if his and Vijay's app gets more downloads in a week than theirs, he gets a date with Yael. Yael says if they win, he'll owe them a million dollars to donate to a charity. They shake hands, but Yael bails. At school, Baaz asks Yael if they were so disgusted at going on a date with him they cheated. Yael says they didn't cheat and is happy they're winning in the downloads stakes now they changed it to make people use it the way they want and thinks people will use it them once it gets going but Baaz says they won't. Baaz walks away angry, with Yael saying he's a 'sore loser.' In class, Baaz and Vijay win the app contest, Yael says they took their app down because they didn't want to win that way and plus they have other ideas to make it. This leads to Yael owing Baaz a date.

In #TheseAreMyConfessions, they go on the date together, but it is revealed that he only went on the date with Yael to make Grace jealous. Meaning he still likes Grace and is using not efficient ways to get her to like him as seen in #BuyMePizza when he insults her to get her to like him.
