Maya later asks Katie if she can drive her to the mall, Katie asks if she has a date and than Maya tells her it's with Campbell Saunders. Katie doesn't approve since she thinks the hockey guys are bad news. Maya tries to tell her that Cam is different from the others, and if she ever met him she would know that. Katie agrees to drive her but she is going to be chaperoning them. When the movie is over, Maya asks Cam if he liked the movie and he says he liked the best friend, which makes Katie ask him if it's because the best friend was the "womanizer". Katie starts to ask Cam a lot of questions to Maya's dismay, so Maya distracts Katie and runs away with Cam into a photobooth. While the two of them are in the photobooth, they talk about their siblings and how they did crazy and painful things for them.

Cam says the garden, and Maya agrees.

Cam seems a little disappointed at the conversation, and Maya spills juice on him. Cam gets up and says he'll go change shirts, and they stand there awkwardly in front of each other. As she leans in to kiss Cam, Maya gets a mouthful of Cam's ear when he turns the other way. Maya steps back and tells him to "break a leg" at his game. Cam then walks away.Later in class, Maya is texting Tristan and Tori about her date with Cam. They get caught and the teacher reads the messages aloud. Cam is upset by them, and when the bell rings, he walks out of the room in a rush. Maya follows him and says she's never had a boyfriend before, she doesn't know how anything works, and she just wants him to like her. He then tells her that he thought she actually cared about him, and not the fact that he was a hockey star. He walks away and leaves Maya distraught.
After school, Maya is in her room playing the cello when Cam walks in and tells her Katie let him in.

He tells her he is still in pain from practice yesterday and she apologizes and gets off. She, Tori, and Tristan tell him he needs a break from hockey and invite him to karaoke night at Little Miss Steaks, but he tells them he can't miss practice. Later, Cam is walking to practice and overhears the team talking about him. He gets angry and drinks a whole carton of milk so he could throw up and convince the team he was too sick to play. His plan works and he goes to Little Miss Steaks to hang out with Maya. Maya tries to get him to go up and sing with her even though he was against it at first. He actually ends up going up there and having a good time.
The next day Maya walks up to Cam at his locker, scaring him, and gives him a flyer for chorus. Cam says music is her thing and sports is his, and that's what he likes about them. Interrupting their moment, Luke and Dallas walk up to Cam and tells him they found out he ditched practice because they saw a picture of him up on stage. For punishment they force him to skate until he just can't take it anymore. When Cam is in the hockey room cooling off, Dallas comes in and tells him the team is all he's got. Cam gets angry and throws his skate, cutting his hand.In Rusty Cage (2), Cam is seen with Maya in the Media Room, examining his plays from the last game. He then comes to a conclusion that he should play right wing instead of left. Maya thinks this is a good idea. At the game that night, before Cam hits the right wing, Luke threatens him, saying that if Cam makes them lose then he'll make his life hell. Cam notices Maya and Tristan, and starts to smile. The game begins, and Cam is going strong. By the end, the game is tied 3 to 3. Cam makes a goal, making the score 4 to 3 and winning the game. The next day he skips school and stays home, making Maya worried. She keeps texting him, at first joking with him about skipping, then eventually asking if he would tell her in the event that something was wrong. Cam is sitting on his bed reading his texts.

Maya then mentions they have been dating for a month and have only kissed six times, Cam gives Maya a quick kiss and says seven. Maya, a little hurt asks if that's all she's getting, he tells her that with everything going on its hard to get in the mood with her. To help him she takes off her shirt and throws it at him. Confused, he asks her what she's doing then worries his billet mom might come in the room. She tries to grab her shirt back and falls off the bed before quickly leaving.
Later at school after asking for girl advice from Tori, Maya decides to have a make over so she would look prettier for Cam and possibly compete in a beauty pageant. After Tori and Tristan finish she asks if Cam would like it, Tristan replies that he'd be crazy not to. She goes to Cam's locker and asks him about her new look. He asks her why she is dressed like that and laughs when she tells him that she was thinking about doing a beauty pageant, he says it's not her thing.

She goes to Cam's in tears and tells him he was right, that pageants are stupid and asks if he could forgive her. He does. The next day at lunch Cam, Maya, Tori, and Zig are all sitting together discussing the pageant. Tori won from her speech and Maya says she earned it, they both apologize and Tori mentions that she can't believe Maya lost and that she looks so pretty.

Cam slides down the wall and wipes his face, saying he's tired, and that he wishes to go to sleep and never wake up. Alli reassures him that everyone has bad days but he says all his days are bad, that Maya hates him and Dallas yelled at him for being a screw up and that maybe he was right.

At Maya's house, Maya is playing her cello when Katie tells her that a "bouquet with legs" was delivered for her, she's confused until Cam walks in. Katie asks Maya if she's okay and she says yes, Katie leaves. Maya says the flowers must of cost a small fortune, Cam agrees and tells her she's worth it. She thanks him and he asks to hang out with her, since he's suspended he won't see her for the rest of the week. She tells him she's practising her cello for an audition for a young orchestra. Cam congratulates her and volunteers to stay and watch her practice. When she's silent, he apologizes and says it was a tough day before turning to leave. Maya says that she can't practice all night, her parents were away, and that if it was okay with Katie she wanted him to stay.Later, Cam and Maya are watching videos on her phone when Katie tells them it's late and Cam should go. Cam says he doesn't want to go home and Maya asks to show him something if he promised not to laugh. She shows him Hoot, an owl that she got from her parents for when she went to an over night camp when she was eight years old. She says her parents told her that as long as she had him she wouldn't feel lonely and that he needed to get his own stuffed animal. Cam asks why it can't be her when she was more owl like, she playfully smacks him and tells him to shut up. Katie comes back and tells Cam it's time to go but Maya wants him to stay, Katie tells her no at first, but Maya convinces her by saying that Katie owes her for the many times she covered for her when she went to Jake's. Katie says it's one time and that when their parents return, they can't do it again. Cam waits for her to leave before hitting Maya with a pillow, he blames it on Hoot and pretends to have it attack her, before they fall asleep. The next morning Katie tells Maya they over slept and to hurry or else they would be late for school. Maya asks where Cam is and Katie responds that she doesn't know, Maya puts on her glasses and looks around before her phone goes off. Cam left her a video saying that he was sorry he left but he had early morning practice and that he didn't want to wake her because she was drooling and it was cute. He tells her he kidnapped Hoot and that if she ever wanted the owl again to meet him on the steps at lunch and they would negotiate for his safe return, he laughs evilly and the video ends with Maya smiling. At school, Cam is eating and sees Zig. He tells him about his eye and that he hoped it didn't hurt too bad and that he also hope it didn't hurt too bad that he lost the girl. Zig is surprised that Maya forgave him and says it won't last and that he can't keep the act up for long. Cam asks what act and Zig says that Maya will eventually see what he sees and that Cam's a psycho, he says it sucks that Maya would have to deal with it and that if he really cared about her, he'd get out of her life forever, leaving Cam to start crying. At lunch Maya gets to the steps and doesn't see Cam. She texts him to ask him where he is, and finds two lunches on the edge of the steps. Cam quickly texts back telling her he's not coming and that it was over, leaving Maya stunned and confused.
Sometime after, Cam has an emotional breakdown and commits suicide in Degrassi's greenhouse. He is discovered the next morning by Eli Goldsworthy and Clare Edwards. Meanwhile, Maya is very worried about Cam breaking up with her, as they just had a great night the night before. Katie tells her that she needs to concentrate on her music audition and forget Cam for now. The girls see police cars pull up to the school, and Maya is told by Madame Jean-Aux that Katie needs to take her to see Mr. Simpson. Once they arrive, Simpson brings a counsellor into the room and he explains that Cam has killed himself. While Katie is shocked and saddened, Maya shows almost no emotion and asks if she can go and practice for her audition.Later, a candlelight vigil is planned for Cam and Marisol asks Maya if she can speak at it. Maya initially refuses, as she has her audition that same night, but later agrees. She has trouble thinking of anything that she can say, and watches the video that Cam had sent her two days ago. Tori comes in to check and see if Maya is okay, but Maya becomes angry and throws her out.
Katie tells Maya at the vigil that the police have found Hoot, and that she can go get him whenever she wants. Still emotionless, Maya shrugs this off and Katie becomes worried, walking off to think about how she can help her sister grieve. Zig approaches and Maya is very happy to see him, but becomes annoyed when she sees that he too is upset over Cam's death. He tells her that he feels it is all his fault that Cam is gone and Maya when Maya laughs, Zig is both confused and offended. Marisol tells Maya that it's time for her to speak and Zig's words about guilt are obviously still on Maya's mind. She makes her speech, and tells the school that the vigil was stupid and that they shouldn't be feeling sad and guilty, because Cam made a bad choice. Katie attempts to explain to her sister that Cam was very sick mentally, but Maya refuses to listen and says that if he needed help, he could've come to her and she would've helped him.
The next day, Katie and Maya walk into school and Katie checks that Maya is feeling okay before going to class. Maya assures her that she's fine, and Katie nods, knowing she's not, and leaves. Tori apologizes to Maya for the day before, and says that she'd wanted to be friends again even before Cam died. The girls hug and begin to walk off to their next class together. However, Maya pauses and pulls Hoot from her backpack. She holds it to her chest for a moment, before following Tori.
In Ray of Light (1), Eli watches a video for the video yearbook. He comes across a clip of Cam and Maya together as he gives Maya a piggyback ride as she laughs.

In Zombie (1), Maya is still in denial about Cam's death, and she begins trying to take her stress out by dressing provocatively, asking Zig on a date and, when he rejects her, flirting with Harry. She asks Katie if she is a bad person for not being depressed about Cam's death like everyone else is. Later, Maya goes to her first Senior party and begins to drink, eventually becoming drunk, and partying. She meets Talia and Harry and Talia finds a picture of Cam on Maya's phone. Maya drunkenly tells Talia and Harry on video that she never chose to be "the girlfriend of the dead guy", referring to Cam, and asks everyone to just "get over it".
In Zombie (2), Maya looks up in memory of Cam before starting her audition, with the song she played a lot after his suicide.
That night, as Maya continues to spin after Cam's suicide, Maya and Harry are seen making out on Maya's couch. At first, she is into it but soon becomes hesitant when remembering that it is the last place where she and Cam shared their final moments at and looks visibly upset. She asks Harry if all they are going to do is kiss and he says they could do more, unbuckling his belt. She becomnes reluctant and nervous, telling him that she has never done that before and he tells her to go with it. Then, Katie and Margaret walk in and kick Harry out when realizing what Maya was just about to do. At the end of the episode, Maya finally break downs about Cam, saying that she hates him for breaking up with her by killing himself and like she is never going to be happy again, and how it gets worse everyday and that she just can't miss him anymore. She finally begins to cope in a healthy way and breaks down sobbing in Katie's arms, who is relieved that Maya is finally letting her pain out.
In Summertime, Tristan tells Miles and Zoe about how two boys began fighting over Maya the previous year, referring to Cam and Zig.

Later, when Maya talks about everyone leaving her she pauses as she thinks about Cam, but not being able to say his name.
In Who Do You Think You Are, Maya performs a song in front of her class and, following this, is finally asked out by Miles. Maya is clearly hesitant and asks if she can get back to him on it, much to his disappointment. Tristan asks her about her date with Miles as she goes to her next class, only for her to say she isn't sure on account of her bad history with guys. Tristan says that she's only ever been in one relationship and that just because her relationship with Cam ended tragically, doesn't mean she can't take a chance at happiness with Miles, who more than clearly likes her.
