"Have you ever loved somebody so much that you just wish you could take all their pain and give it to yourself?"
The relationship between Miles Hollingsworth III and Tristan Milligan, also known as Triles (Tristan/Miles), began as a result from a kiss they shared in Thunderstruck. They managed to maintain a low-profile relationship until Miles told his dad about their relationship in a moment of anger. They had broken up as of Hero vs. Villain due to Tristan figuring out that Miles still has feelings for Maya, but after some time on bad terms, they get back together in #CheckYourPrivilege but Tristan later ends the relationship during #GetYouAManThatCanDoBoth. However, it has been implied by both the writers, and actors (Lyle Lettau and Eric Osborne) that they will eventually rekindle and resume their romantic relationship.
Tristan and Miles met through Maya Matlin at an all-ages concert before going on a school summer trip to Paris. Tristan is initially distrusting of Miles, calling him "trouble". They later become friends during the summer Paris trip when Miles is accepting of Tristan's homosexuality. Throughout the semester, they grow closer and hang out a lot along with Maya. After Miles and Maya's break up, they ditch the school dance and hang out at Miles' house. During the storm, they share a romantic moment and kiss, only to be interrupted by Winston. They were a couple until Tristan figured out Miles still had feelings for his ex Maya. After some time apart they got back together and hit a few bumps in the road with their relationship, (i.e. the bus crash, Miles’ cheating, Tristan’s recovery), before Tristan ended things once and for all so Miles could pursue his writing career and he could get better on his own.
In Summertime, Tristan ushers Maya away from Miles in the Degrassi foyer when Miles and Maya exchange glances. He and Miles later become acquainted at the Fefe Dobson concert through Maya, when Miles gets them backstage. Nonetheless, Tristan is suspicious of Miles, insisting to Maya that he is "trouble, 100%."
In All I Wanna Do, Tristan is roommates with Miles and Winston Chu during the Paris trip. When Miles catches Tristan staring at him while he is changing, he makes a cocky comment. This causes Tristan to pretend he's straight by calling Maya his girlfriend. Winston and Miles find this comical since they know Tristan is gay, but Tristan interprets their laughter as bullying, even though Miles claims they are just joking. Tristan puts up a "privacy screen," which Miles takes down. He tells Tristan that they laughed at him because they knew he was gay all along; he claims that he is happy that Tristan is his roommate, and then they hug.In My Own Worst Enemy, they both walk into class discussing on how to say "eclair" in French.

Miles tells him "she's not his type". A song that Tristan likes comes on, making him excited and Miles tells him he did a dance to it.

He then invites Tristan to come to his house after school, in which Tristan believes they're going to hang out, until he finds out from Maya that she also has been invited, that everyone has, since Miles is throwing a party at his house. At the party, Miles and Tristan find out that they both made the basketball team. Tristan is elated, but Miles seems unhappy, and rushes away, upset. Even though Miles's best friend, Winston, ignores Miles's outburst, Tristan goes after Miles to see what is wrong, joining Miles by the pool. Miles admits to Tristan that he just wants to make his dad happy by making the starting line-up, and that he is considering taking steroids to enhance his performance.

Dallas then approaches Tristan about the pills and says that he can't tolerate that happening on his team. Tristan then reveals that he has been giving Miles vitamin pills as a placebo, to prevent Miles from going off to find real steroids. Tristan knows he's in over his head, and admits the truth to Miles. Miles is furious with Tristan for lying to him saying that "he thought they were friends," and is worried that the rest of the team is going to think he's stupid for giving them fake steroids. However, Tristan performs major damage control, and gives the team another round of vitamins, telling them they're "flush capsules," that will get the "steroids" out of their system, and allow them to pass any drug tests.

Then, the mood changes when their old teacher, Mr. Yates, comes up in conversation. It is revealed that Tristan had an affair with him. When Tristan confesses that he thought he and Mr. Yates shared a genuine connection, Miles accidentally offends him, by laughing and telling him, "...no one will ever truly love you." Tristan storms out, upset.
Miles finds Tristan outside in the storm, and apologizes for his cruel reaction to Tristan's confession. He admits that he wasn't trying to imply that no one could love Tristan, saying that "he's the most lovable guy he knows." Instead, he was referring to the fact that every girl he dates leaves him after they get to know him.

Tristan says that people have been noticing things about him have been changing. He's been moody, irritable and he has been skipping classes a lot.
Miles asks why people keep butting in, and Tristan asks Miles to tell him if it's him. Miles sits back down and tells Tristan that "he can't be the problem because there is no problem." Tristan asks if he's sure, Miles says yes and says that all of their friends are just jealous because they are happy while they are not.

Tristan says no and he has to get back to school and tells Miles he should too. Miles says his current situation is way more fun. Tristan says "smoking dope by yourself is fun?"

Tristan explains to Winston that he thought his sushi lunch was going to be a hit but it wasn't because Miles barely talked and didn't open his origami love notes and he can't figure out why, Winston points out that Miles is staring at Maya down the hallway, Tristan is upset to see this. Tristan finds Miles in the hallway skipping assembly and then says he is surprised he is alone, Miles asks what that means, Tristan says he thought it was the intervention that pushed him away but it was what happened after that, Miles says that he drove Maya to her appointment, so what?
