January 6, 2017
Tristan comes to opening night of the play. Miles tells him the truth about Lola, but Tristan already knew. Tristan asks if he loved Lola and who he really wanted to be with. Miles says he did love Lola, but he really wants to be with Tristan instead.
Maya appears happier. She writes a new song and she hugs her mom and Katie goodbye. She goes to school and asks Zig where Grace is so she can deliver a gift. Zig tells her to leave so Esme won't see them. Maya goes to the play and sees that Esme is sitting in her spot. She gives Grace's gift to Yael, leaves the play and goes onto an empty bus outside. She opens the case she had from the previous episode and takes every pill she collected. She puts on her headphones and awaits her fate. She later wakes up disappointed and tells herself she can't do anything right. She is sedated from the pills and exits the bus. Maya tries to reenter Degrassi, but the door is jammed. While walking outside, Saad sees her and approaches her. Still sedated, she hugs him and thanks him for being her friend and he helps her open the door. She enters Degrassi and Saad walks away. Maya makes her way to the school's roof. She stares out into the sky, takes a photo and posts it online with a caption and then stares down from the roof's edge.
Esme and Zig ditch the play to make out on the roof. Esme sees Maya passed out and realizes she overdosed. She tearfully tells Zig to call 911. The two along with Miles, Tristan, Grace, and Zoë are at the hospital and await Maya's status. Grace says she knew Maya was sad and didn't think she was capable of suicide. Esme says that they can never know what goes on in her head and that Maya didn't want to be here anymore and she got her wish.
Katie comes out and says Maya will make it and everyone is relieved. They all promise to stick by Maya's side through this.
Rasha comes out to Goldi and tells her that Zoë was kicked out of her home. Rasha performs at the play and later sees Zoë with a bouquet of flowers after the performance. She forgives Zoë for the events in the previous episode and the two officially restart their relationship.
