Character History

Season 11

In Should've Said No (2), Liam gets set up with Clare by Alli when she shows up to Degrassi's Movie Night. Clare tells him that they should go for a walk, during which she kisses him. Liam tells Clare that he knows that she's into Jake, then Jake comes out in the hall to talk to her. Disappointed, he tells her that he's going to back in to watch the rest of the movie, leaving Clare and Jake to talk.

In Drop It Like It's Hot (1), Liam asks Hannah and Wesley if he can join their group for a science project, and Hannah allows him to join. He makes Wesley jealous, and eventually nervous when he reveals that he wants to ask Hannah out. He's surprised that Wesley and her are dating, and said that they don't seem to go together well.
Liam plans on getting a car one day, which causes Wesley to say he has his license and will take Hannah home, telling Liam that he can't come because of his uncle's one passenger only rule, leaving him to walk home.

In Drop It Like It's Hot (2), Liam suggests to Hannah and Wesley that they check out an exhibit at the science museum to get some ideas for their project, and suggests that the three drive to the museum during lunch after he pressures Wesley into allowing both him and Hannah to go. He is angered when he finds out that Wesley never had his license after the teens get pulled over by the police. The next day he thinks Wes has summoned them because they are going to beg their teacher for an extension, when the project is already finished. The next day it is announced that their team has won the contest and will be going to provincial finals.


In In the Cold, Cold Night (1), Liam is seen heading The Degrassi Daily meeting due to Katie being in rehab. He concurs with majority of those present that it's unreasonable to publish the Christmas edition of the newspaper due to nobody appropriate being available to organize it. When Clare interjects saying that she believes it's important, Liam invites her to create her own newspaper team and publish the Christmas newspaper.
