He is best friends with Winston Chu, whom he calls "Chewy", and good friends with Tristan Milligan. He was also a good friend of Maya Matlin and developed a crush on her before starting a relationship with her. He has a younger sister and brother, a set of twins, named Frankie and Hunter. He was in a short-lived relationship with Zoë Rivas before he broke up with her when she began treating Maya unfairly. He seems to have a dislike towards Drew Torres, possibly also triggered by his father's favor towards him. He is labelled as "Billionaire Bad Boy." Miles is portrayed by Eric Osborne.
Season 13In Summertime, he is seen at Degrassi watching Maya bump into a display board and smiles. Later, he watches Maya do a pizza delivery scam to try to get into a club, but tells Maya while the scam was a good try, it won't work. She argues that it might and he tells her, once again, that it won't. He also ends up offering Maya a hit of his joint, which she refuses. Maya and Miles introduce themselves, and he gets her to come see the concert backstage with Zoë and Tristan by telling Maya that he's with the band.
There is an incident backstage where Maya tells Tristan that Zoë's character on West Drive is getting killed off. Zoë then steps on Maya's foot and she trips and spills her water bottle, which results in the band's equipment's being ruined, halting the concert. A security guard comes and asks them whats going on and Maya tells him that Miles is with the band. The security guard reveals that Miles actually isn't with the band and leads Zoë, Tristan, Miles, and Maya away. Tristan insists how he doesn't want to go to jail.Miles' dad shows up and tells his son to come with him and for everybody else to simply go home. As Miles passes by Tristan and Maya, he overhears them discussing how they don't have any money to get home. He stops and hands Maya his credit card and tells her the PIN number and watches as the two walk away. At Miles's house, he is seen stealing liquor away from a table. He introduces Maya to his buddy Winston, whom he calls Chewy.
After drinking some liquor, Maya drops the bottle which leads to Miles being viciously scolded by his father. In retaliation, Miles flips and jump in the swimming pool even after Maya tells him not to do anything stupid. Winston jokes that Maya has to "go fish him out". However, Maya responds by saying, "No. I can't be here. I can't be around guys like him," and runs off. From inside the pool, Miles can be seen watching her as she hurries away from the scene.
At the end of the episode, while Maya and Tristan are on the bus, the trip instructor announces that they have two last minute additions to their trip. Miles and Winston then climb aboard on the bus much to the two's shock. Miles walks behind Winston as he takes his seat, touching Maya's shoulder as he passes. As he and Winston take their seats, Maya asks them how he got on the trip last minute. Miles explains that his dad wanted to send him off for a bit and tells her that they are "going to spend the summer together after all". However, Maya tells him that she's there to spend it with her best friend, not him, therefore rejecting him. He remarks, "Your loss" as he glances away. Zoë shows a clear interest in him, warning Maya to keep her distance from him.
In All I Wanna Do, Miles is seen getting out of a car in France with Winston and teases him about whether or not he can land a French girl. He is rooming with Winston and Tristan, who absentmindedly checks out Miles while he gets dressed. Miles and Winston tease Tristan for staring, and Tristan then tells them that he is straight and has a girlfriend. The two don't believe him, but Maya then enters the room and Tristan hurriedly tells them that Maya is his girlfriend, who catches on and plays along.
Later on, Miles and Winston are seen hanging out together and convince Tristan to go and hang out with Maya. He does so and to up the ante, Miles suggests that two kiss. Maya kisses Tristan, who is disgusted, and Miles and Winston laugh.
That same day, Miles returns to the dorm room to find that Tristan has put a sheet around his bed so that the boys will not feel uncomfortable being in the same room with him. Miles assures him that he and Winston don't care and that they're just joking, but Tristan calls what they're doing as bullying much to Mile's surprise.
When Tristan returns later, Miles has taken the sheet down and put a candy on his pillow and tells him that they were teasing him for trying to act straight when they already knew that he was gay. He also explains that neither him nor Winston is homophobic and is offended that Tristan would make that assumption. Tristan is relieved and says that he could hug him right then, but Miles takes his shirt off so that he can go shower, and Tristan becomes distracted and says that they can't now. Miles pulls him in for a hug anyway, and tells him that he's going to have a great summer. He then exits the room, leaving a smiling Tristan alone. It is obvious that Tristan has developed a crush on Miles.In My Own Worst Enemy, Miles walks into class with Tristan and is seen to be teaching him french. He then goes to sit elsewhere, and Tristan tells Maya that Miles bought him food. Tristan also confesses that he believes Miles to be gay, and Zoë reveals that she too is after him and that he's straight. Madame enters and tells the students that she wants everyone to buy French food for the rest of the class to sample and that they should be in groups of two people. Miles agrees to be partners with Tristan, which angers Zoë.
Later on, Tristan and Miles go to a restaurant where Miles orders food for him. Tristan tries to get Miles to comment on the cashier, but he just claims that she isn't his type. A song begins to play and Tristan says that he loves the song, to which Miles embarrassingly admits he did a dance to once. He then tells Tristan that he took a hip hop class as a young boy when his sister was in tap dancing lessons next door, although his father pulled him out soon after finding out. Tristan apologizes on his behalf and Miles shrugs and claims that they just don't see eye to eye, but thanks Tristan for being a good friend.
Tristan then kisses Miles, who appears to be clearly shocked. He is embarrassed, but Miles tells him that it's not a big deal and to forget about it. That night, Tristan tells Maya that he thinks that Miles liked the kiss and is considering asking him out. Right then, the two discover Zoë in Miles' lap on the couch stroking his hair, leaving Tristan disappointed and upset causing him to quickly leave the scene. Maya watches the new couple a moment longer.In About a Girl, Miles first appears in a classroom making out with Zoë and then takes his seat for class. He is then seen making out with Zoë again below the balcony, much to Maya's annoyance. Maya and Tristan form a plan to stop Miles and Zoë from their constant PDA. The plan goes wrong when Maya dumps water on the teacher instead of Miles and Zoë and they both get detention for it. Miles and Zoë are seen looking up at the balcony and laughing at Maya and Tristan.
He later appears when Maya is scrubbing the floors in detention. He confronts her about the water incident and she says he's done worse things and that she is just annoyed with him and Zoë always making out in public. Miles says that Zoë isn't his girlfriend, leading Maya to ask if he just makes out with random girls. Miles tells Maya if they ask nicely and then asks her if she wants to kiss him. Maya answers that she "wouldn't kiss him with her dog's lips". He then says that he believes she tried to pour the water on him and Zoë because she likes him, but Maya instead insists that Tristan likes him, not her, and only did it for him.
Maya reminds him of the the kiss he and Tristan shared and how humiliated he feels to where he can't show up for class because of his constant behavior with Zoë. Miles looks over Maya's shoulder just in time to see Tristan standing there and listening to their conversation. When Tristan leaves, humiliated, Miles asks Maya, "Are you sure you don't want to kiss me?" Maya just looks at him and leaves to follow after Tristan.In Cannonball, Miles and Winston are seen getting dressed before Maya walks in, trying to find Tristan. Miles says that Tristan already left before they woke up. As Maya is leaving, he says that she should take someone with her to stay safe. She agrees with him, and walks over and takes Winston and drags him off to the doorway. Winston asks why not take Miles, who is familiar and been in Paris before, Maya turns and looks directly at Miles. She says she doesn't need "a guy like him" around. Miles throws Winston his shirt without a word, and as they leave, he looks downward, clearly upset.
Later, when Winston convinces Maya that she needs Miles to find Tristan because he speaks French and knows his way around Paris, they walk in to see Miles and Zoë sitting on his bed. Miles, at Zoë's suggestion, makes Maya get on her knees to ask him for help. When she does, she is required to ask him again, but this time in French. Just as she begins speaking in French, he cuts her off and seems to push Zoë aside carelessly, eager to help Maya.It is raining outside when they go to find Tristan in the evening, and he is carrying a black umbrella. He stops by a fast food place, making Maya upset, and offers her a fry. When Maya looks like she is about to cry and says she doesn't know what to say to Tristan even if they find him because she is a terrible friend, Miles assures her that it'll be fine and all she has to do is talk to Tristan. When she remarks if she is supposed to hope, "the wind will carry her words to his ears."Miles suggets to walk across the street to where Tristan is. He gives her the umbrella and leaves.
In class, Maya and Tristan are doing a presentation on the pillory as a form of public humiliation, and Maya suggests Miles try it out, joking that he "fits the bill" for it. Tristan jokingly asks if anyone has any rotten fruit to throw at Miles. When the bell rings, Maya and Tristan almost leave Miles stuck in the pillory. When Miles calls to be let out, Maya stays back and asks quietly why he was so nice to her the other day. Miles says she must have caught him on a good day. They stare at each other for a moment before Zoë interrupts, reminding Miles that he promised to take her out to a fancy restaurant. Miles seems slightly reluctant. Maya lets him out of the pillory, but before he leaves the classroom following Zoë, Miles tells Maya he'll see her around with a smile. He can be seen taking a quick glance at her from behind as he leaves the room.In Honey, he is seen in class when Madame Criquet tells everyone not to wear vulgar or typical teenage Canadian clothing to a fancy French restaurant, but fancy clothing. After Zoë makes fun of Maya for wearing Converse, she tells Miles that he looks hot "like that". He asks "Like what?" which Zoë then says she doesn't know and kisses him.
At the dinner, he sees Maya in her dress and is obviously impressed by how she looks, not even able to form a sentence, clearly finding it flattering on her. Zoë sees this, and throws her drink on Maya as she sits down. Miles looks at Zoë angrily as Maya and Tristan leave to clean up her dress. Later, he informs Maya and Tristan that he ended his relationship with her because of how she acted towards Maya. He also warns her to "watch her back" and when Maya asks why, he tells her that Zoë has this "crazy idea" that he's into her.In This Is How We Do It, he can be seen walking with Winston who is trying to get the attention of a few girls, who don't even know him. He remarks how Winston has been there for a year and not even one girl knows him. Winston says that none of the school girls were worth knowing just as Miles notices Maya and Tristan. As he looks at Maya, he says there might "one or two worth checking out".
Later on, he walks into class and again notices Maya and Tristan. He asks Maya that since he's new to Degrassi if she has "any good girlfriend recommendations". Maya sarcastically says she'd never stick him with "some poor, unsuspecting girl", causing him to say, "You mean some very lucky girl" as he sits down next to her. When Tristan brings up his fling with Zoë, Miles admits that dating Zoë was a mistake and that it was all behind him now. Tristan, who notices Zoë behind them, remarks, "literally". Miles looks up and behind me to see Zoe. He asks her if she's attending Degrassi now and is clearly disdained, dropping his head and obvious annoyance. As Mr. Perino walks in, he and Maya and Tristan take theirseats.
As Zoe tries to leavea and Mr. Perino says she can't, he and everyone else watch Zoë lash out on Mr. Perino in shock and surprise. Later, Miles, Maya, and Tristan are seen talking to each other in the hallway about the basketball team until Zoë interrupts them and mentions that she's interested in joining the power squad. Miles tells her off instead and walks off with Tristan and a reluctant Maya.
In You Got Me, he is seen alongside Tristan and Maya buying tickets for the Beach Bash and running into Frankie, his sister, and Zoë. When Zoë tries to "jerk tax" him as he pays for the tickets, he teasingly remarks to Zoë that she's still "carrying that torch for him". When Zoë says since she "dumped" him that she's found her friends, causing Miles to remark how he thought Frankie had better taste in friends. Zoë then says that she is with Drew Torres, although Maya and Tristan bring up how he already has a fiance who is away at university.
Later on, Miles is seen arriving at the dance behind Maya and Tristan. When Winston tries to dance, Miles says that is the exact reason as to why he doesn't have a girlfriend. Later, he is seen flirting with Maya for the remainder of his time there. Zoë eventually becomes jealous and drags Drew in front of them to dance. When Drew begins acting strange, Miles make a joke out of it. When Zoë remarks why not he and Maya have sex before she runs off, he and Maya laugh.He is seen in You Oughta Know trying out for the basketball team alongside Tristan. He is desperate to land starter position on the team, as it is what his father wants, despite it being highly unlikely since he is a sophomore and is going up against juniors and seniors. Tristan tries to make conversation with him, wanting to have a, "guy best friend," instead of his usual female crowd, and Miles invites him over to his house since he is having a party.
During the party, he is talking with Winston and Tristan when they are notified via their cell phones of the official listing for the basketball team. Despite having made the team, Miles is upset that he didn't get the position he wanted and storms off. Tristan follows after him, concerned, and Miles says how his father is going to be pissed that he failed to get starter position.
Tristan asks if he'll just simply be happy that he made the team at all, but Miles answers that's "not really his style" and that his dad is "much better at disappointment". He then says that he just needs something to give him "an edge". Tristan says that he hopes he's talking about a personal trainer. However, Miles tells him that the other guys at his old school did it and that it isn't a big deal. Tristan, though, is visibly surprised and says that steriods are a very big deal.
At the end of the episode, Miles is seen getting ready for his first basketball practice just as Tristan comes up to him with a small plastic bag of pills, seemingly steriods. He claims to have gotten them from his older brother and Miles happily hugs him. He tells him that he gave him just what he needs to make starter. Tristan appears nervous and sit down and Miles asks if he's coming since he doesn't want to be late for his practice. Tristan says he'll be out in a minute and Miles leaves.In Everything You've Done Wrong, Miles has officially made starter position. Tristan is happy for him until Miles requests more steroids, believing they are what he needs in order to keep his position on the team. He also tells him how he has spread the word onto the team that he is getting steroids from someone much to Tristan's anger, who says that he can't be "giving away drugs like candy". Miles assures him that he didn't reveal his name and that if he gives him the drugs, then he will do the distributing personally himself. Unknown to Miles, Tristan didn't give him real steroids, only vitamin D tablets.
Later, Tristan has decided to come clean to Miles and comes up to him while Miles is at his locker. Before he can say anything, Miles tells him that the "steroids" have already been given to the whole time. Tristan then confesses to him that the drugs are fake since he was worried and didn't want him doing real drugs.
Miles quickly becomes angry at Tristan and says that he doesn't need him to worry about him and that because of him, the whole team is going to think he's stupid "just like his dad". He slams his fist into the locker and begins walking off as Tristan insists that he is willing to come clean so he won't suffer any trouble. Instead, Miles asks Tristan how he is able to lie to him because he "thought they were friends" before storming off.
Miles is next seen in the boy's locker room changing as Tristan goes up the boys who are taking his "steroids". Miles watches as Tristan reveals himself as the "supplier" and how he has learned of the many random drug tests that will be given to them. He offers a dosage of pills that will wipe the evidence of the "steroids" clean from their systems before declaring that after this, he is done with "supplying" and is "out of the business."
As the team leaves, Miles asks him what he actually gave them and he answers that he gave them b12 tablets and when they test clean they will think it was another pill doing the job. Tristan again apologizes for what he did, but Miles says that he understands what he did and that he was so determined to make starter position that he was "messed up" for a bit. He also says that he appreciates Tristan looking out for him and that there's an "up side" to everything that he's now realized... he made starter position on his own.In Who Do You Think You Are, Miles can be seen watching Maya as she performs her song project in front of the class, happily smiling, and joining in when the class applauds for her. Afterwards, Maya asks him for his opinion of her song. He responds that he was thought it was "okay", causing Maya to smile in amusement before she begins to walk away. However, Miles stops her, implying that he has something to ask her. He then asks Maya out, pulling out two tickets, inviting her to attend a concert with him the following day. Maya is clearly hesitant, and asks if she could get back to him. Miles is visibly disappointed, but says sure before leaving Maya with her thoughts. He is next seen watching Maya's new music video alongside Maya, Tristan and Zoë. He can be seen getting worked up and jealous as he watches Maya's romantic and intimate scenes with her male music video co-star. As Maya is ecstatic over the video, believing it will get her noticed as a musician, she notices Miles's tense and silent expression and asks him for his opinion about it. He responds, "It's fine... if you're into porn". He then gets up and abruptly leave in a huff.
Later on, Maya meets up with him in the hallway and asks if he's mad at her. Miles asks why he'd be mad at her. Maya brings up the guy in her video and he says it's not like she's his girlfriend. Maya then mentions the concert and begins to apologize for declining when he says that he figured she just wasn't ready for a relationship yet when she just wasn't ready for him. Maya insists that isn't the reason at all and he says it's fine since he'll just find someone else to go with him and admits that he's really just surprised; she isn't the person he thought she was. Maya becomes confused and asks if it's about what she did in the video. She insists that was only acting, not the real her, and that she was doing if for the sake of her music career, causing Miles to retort, "So you were a slut to get attention". This comment makes Maya freeze in shock and Miles tells her to check out her Facerange fan page as it's what everyone is saying about her. He walks away from a stunned and confused Maya.
In class later, Miles sits as far away from Maya as possible. He watches at Maya is bullied by fellow classmates for her video and is openly slut shamed in front of the class when she tries to give a report on Jane Eyre. When Maya finally breaks down and flees from the classroom in clear distress, Miles looks downward in obvious remorse, clearly feeling regret.
In Barely Breathing, Miles walks into the music room as a male student begins forcing himself onto Maya, who tries pushing him away. Miles yanks him off of her and punches him before literally throwing him out of the room. Maya, in shock, asks him if his hand is okay. Miles says that it isn't, but that it was worth it. When Maya says how everyone believe that she is a slut, Miles tells her that they're wrong and admits that he was wrong to have said what he did about her. He asks how many guys she's kissed. She answers three. Miles reveals how he's kissed fifty different girls and that someone should make a page about him. Maya remarks how since he's a guy people would "probably build him a statue". When Maya says how all she wants if for it to just go away, Miles says that he might have a solution and offers her his hand. Maya looks at him for a moment before accepting it.
Miles and Maya meet up with an older punk girl who recognizes Maya from her music video. It turns out that Miles has payed her to find out who created the page that resulted in Maya's bullying. The girl explains how she knows the creator of the page used a fake account, but that she managed to crack them into unknowingly giving their identity up before showing her who started her page. Maya is shocked to see that it is Zoë, leading her to get into a cat fight with her and landing the two with a meeting with their mothers' and the principal.
After Zoë gets off scott free for the page, Maya storms into the music room as Miles sits on the table, playing the electric guitar. He guesses that the meeting didn't go well. Maya rants to him about how Zoë isn't being punished for what she did and that her mom doesn't want to press charges because she was "sorry". To cheer her up, Miles begins playing the guitar and singing a playful song, bringing Maya to laugh and join in with him, singing a duet together. Miles jokes that she should "enlighten" everyone about the true person Zoë is. In class, Maya volunteers to sing a song in class. Miles attempts to stop her, saying how he was only joking, but Maya says that she is very serious about it. When Maya leaves the classroom when being sent to the office for her song, Miles looks down once again guilty. As a result of "threatening" Zoë's life, Maya is faced with suspension.
That night, feeling guilty, Miles sneaks over to Maya's house window as she plays her cello and taps on the window to get her attention. Maya stops and opens it to ask what he was doing there. He admits how he feels like he pushed her into doing the song, but Maya says that Zoë had it coming. He says that Zoë is jealous of her because of she's "talented, funny and awesome" in ways that Zoë will never be. Maya says that he doesn't have to say things just to make her feel better. Miles, however, tells her, "I'm not... trust me". They share a clear moment before he leans in and kisses her. As he leans back, he says how school is going to suck without her. Maya smiles before hearing her mother about to come into the room. Maya quickly urges Miles out the window before saying a quick, "Wait! No." She gives him one last quick kiss before he descends out the window.In Black Or White, he is seen with Maya and Tristan in Maya's living room on the couch beside her with his arm around her. He laughs with her as Tristan's performs his play script and makes suggestions for him as how to land a more serious role in his drama and acting class.
In Spiderwebs, it is mentioned by Maya that Miles is away for Thanksgiving.In The World I Know, Miles is with Tristan and they sit next on either side of Maya during lunch. They ask her if she wants to go out for lunch to a popular resturaunt that Miles named to be good. However, Maya says she can't go since she has work to do for Remedial class. Miles asks if they give a serious amount of work as he takes a peek at her assignment. Maya says it wouldn't be that bad if she wasn't partnered with Zig Novak. Recognizing his name, Tristan is shocked and he and Maya get into a discussion about him as Miles looks at them in confusion. He asks them who Zig is. Maya insists, "Nobody" as Tristan claims, "Her ex". Miles retorts how those are different things.
Maya explains that Zig isn't her ex since they never dated, but Miles stares at her for a moment. Maya then goes on to say that her relationship with Zig is complicated since they had kissed, earning a surprised chuckle from Miles, but that they haven't talked since last year. Miles insists to her that he isn't going to get jealous "over some Rubber Room skid". Maya looks down awkwardly before Miles then abruptly asks, "Wait, I'm prettier, right?" His comment makes Maya laugh before she says "Of course" and gives him a kiss.
However, Tristan says that Zig, despite his new behavior, is still clearly in love with her. Maya blows off his comment, insisting that he's been watching "too many teen soaps" lately. She urges them to leave while she finishes her work. Miles and Maya share another quick kiss before he leaves with Tristan.In Better Man, Miles walks in on Tristan giving Maya a dark make-over and asks if he missed "make over Monday". Tristan says no, just Maya paying Grace for a list of "Rubber Room Do's and Don'ts". Miles then takes Maya's phone and reads the list of things to do and not to do when you're in the Rubber Room, to which he laughs at. He asks Maya if she really thinks she can do all of this, to which she says she has to if she is going to survive the Rubber Room. Miles asks why she should even care if it's twice a day. Maya says that it doesn't matter since being in a room full of people who hate you is the worst. Tristan the asks her to not "turn into that weirdo in the back of the class". Maya then looks at her reflection in her phone and Miles remarks while rubbing her head that she'd "make a cute weirdo".
Later on, he runs into Maya (who is wearing more darker and edgy clothes to fit in with the Rubber Room kids) as she's making her way out of the school and reminds her how she's supposed to go into the school in the mornings, not out. Maya then gestures and points to a group of the Rubber Room kids behind him. Miles looks back and turns to her, stating that she is planning to skip school to hang out with them, clearly disapproving. Maya begins apologizing, insisting that now she is starting to finally fit in with them.
Despite still not approving, Miles relents saying that she does make a cute weirdo, making her smile. He gives her a kiss and walks into the school.In Dig Me Out, Miles is at his house, throwing a pool party. He is seen flirting with Maya before noticing Drew and Zoe arriving. He retorts how he didn't expect Zoe to arrive there and with "a narc", referencing to Drew. After Miles tries to get them to leave, Drew threatens to reveal the party and how he is distributing alcohol to minors to his father if he doesn't allow him and Zoe to stay. This threat silences Miles, who stares at Drew. Maya comments on Drew's method of blackmail and remarks that he and Zoe are made for each other. Miles' walks off as Maya follows behind him. Later, he challenges Drew and Zoe to a game of chicken pool fighting, but is declined.
In No Surprises, Miles is with Maya at his house and in his pool. He tells her to get in or to be prepared to get splashed. When she tells him she doesn't have a suit, he takes off his swim shorts and tosses them at her and tempts her into skinny dipping. Maya hesitantly decides to go through with it, telling him to turn around. He does so as Maya begins taking off her clothes and jumps into the pool.
After jumping in the pool, they stare at each other for a moment, smiling, before overhearing his father and his campaign staff about to come in. Maya freaks and rushes out as he tries telling her it won't be a big deal since he is in a good place with his father. His dad and campaign staff then come in and stare at a towel covered Maya who awkwardly greets them. Maya tells Mr. Hollingsworth they were doing homework as Miles asks if she can stay for dinner. His father says it would be best if she left and she agrees, leaving in a towel and taking her stuff. Miles is scolded by his father for beingembarrassing him in front of his staff. He yells at him to not humilate him again and to get out of the pool. Miles asks if he could toss him his shorts. His father thows his shorts at him, smacking him in the face, as Miles is left staring downward.
During breakfast with his family, Mr. Hollingsworth gives Miles the silent treatment over the incident. Mr. Hollingsworth praises Miles' siblings Frankie and Hunter for their work on his campaign and suggests Miles follow their example. He tries insisting he was doing good since he hasn't gotten into any trouble since the school year began, but it still isn't good enough. After his father has left, Miles complains to his mother about the way his father has been treating him and she suggests he try harder.
Later on, in class, Maya asks him if she left a bad impression on his father. He tells how how he already told her not to worry about it, but she insists that she is. He tells her that he got blamed for the entire situation and that everything is usually his fault. She says that she has suffered her fair share of parental drama and that sometimes you need to go the extra mile in order to make your parents happy. He mentions his father's campaign she she urges him to help out with that. She then teases him, making him believe she is going to kiss him, only to turn away at the last second, smirking. He smiles to himself in amusement.
At the Hollingsworth house, Miles, Maya and Winston begin helping Mr. Hollingsworth with his Mayoral campaign. Miles is excited to show his dad all the work he has put into helping out and goes outside to show him. However, he instead sees his father flirting with his campaign manager. He stares at them for a moment before looking away in plain disgust. At school, the next day Miles show Maya a necklace that he intends to give to Andrea, his fathers campaign manager, by slipping into her bag and see how she reacts to it and find out what is really going on between the two. Maya is reluctant for him to go through with the plan, warning him how it could just be one big misunderstanding. He still decides to go through with it to see what is truly going on.
At his house during the mock press meeting, Miles sees Andrea happily smile as she opens the fake gift and reads the card he wrote. With his suspicions confirmed, Miles is left furious. During the media training meeting, Miles fails to impress his father with his new attitude, mocking him with saying sarcastically how he hopes to be just like him and leaves abruptly, kicking his chair over before storming out. Miles' mother follows him out, demanding to know what is going on with him. Miles tells her that his father is having an affair.
She says that she knows about it. Stunned, Miles asks her why she won't leave him or even try to deal with the matter. She refuses to discuss her marriage with him and that they will deal with it after the election. Now clearly disgusted, Miles remarks how the election always comes first before anything else and leaves.
That night, Miles is with Maya laying on the couch together. Miles talks to her about how he felt so angered at his father and how feels about the whole situation. Maya asks him if he is okay and he declares that he is done with his parents and their political plans. Miles then says how he has her now. After a moment, he tells her that he loves her. Maya looks up at him in clear surprise and says that she loves him too. He kisses her on her forehead and she lays back down on his chest, smiling to herself. The episode ends as Miles looks upward in deep thought.
In Basket Case, Miles is first seen on the phone with Maya, talking about his parent's going away for a little while. Maya asks if that means he has the place all to himself. After confirming it and asking if she wants to come over, Maya teases him about getting the chance to maybe see "how that skinny dip ends". This leaves Miles slightly nervous. His father then walks in alongside Drew, bringing Miles to end the call, and ask why he was there. Drew reveals how he has been assigned as his personal baby-sitter, infuriating Miles, as his father tells him how there are going to be no girls allowed and no wild parties.Miles, while at school, complains to Winston about how Drew has followed him everywhere he's gone to, including waiting by his locker, outside when he used the bathroom, etc. He says how he is just trying to score points with his father is all the more furious about his father actually assigning him a baby-sitter, not trusting him to spend the night alone in his own house, and is sick of him trying to control his life. He then declares that if he is believed to still be required a baby-sitter, then he will act like he still does then. Winston then asks if that means they are going to be throwing a party. Miles says they are going to be throwing the party. Winston warns him how his father will be furious upon finding out and Miles says his dad is cheating on his mother, so he doesn't care what he thinks. Winston then begins to send messages out, but Miles says they need to take care of Drew first. After a moment, he smiles.
In the hallway, he comes up to Drew who says he needs to take him home AY-SAP. Miles head gestures to Winston nearby in the computer room, who sends Drew a text message disguised as a message from Mr. Hollingsworth. Drew reads the message, believing that Mr. Hollingsworth needs him to do a bunch of campaign work that will last hours. Miles said he'd help out, but he needs to go straight home to finish an English essay. Drew almost begs him to not get into any trouble and Miles assures him he will behave. Drew then leaves as Winston comes up to him, realizing he bought it. Miles asks who is on the guest list and Winston confirms he invited everyone. Miles, looking at him, says he just ditched Drew. Winston says he had faith in him. Zoe then passes and thanks him for the invite and she'll see him later. Miles asks why he'd invite Zoe when he knew she was trouble. Winston responds, "Isn't that the point?" Miles then goes with the choice then declares how this party is going to be epic.
Once the party's gotten started, Miles is thrilled with the large amount of people that showed up. Miles watches with Winston Zoe drunkenly yelling for who's ready to have some fun tonight as the crowd cheers. Later, Maya shows up, who isn't at all happy with the party. Miles drunkenly kisses her, and Maya pulls back asking what's happened to their original plans. Miles, clearly drunk, says how his dad told him he couldn't have anyone over. Maya, looking around stunned, says "So you decided to invite the entire school over?" Miles tells her that they'll have some alone time together. Maya says she isn't worried about that, she wants to know what he plans on doing; throw a huge party and get caught by his father. Miles tells her, "Pretty much". Maya sarcastically remarks, "Awesome".
Miles tries encouraging her to let loose and have some fun, saying how he thought she'd enjoy it, but Maya refuses to. She tries urging him to sober up, but Miles accuses her of becoming judgemental. Maya says how she understands that he's going through something rough, but asks him to call the party off before his whole gets trashed. Miles then yells at her, saying how she doesn't get anything. Maya, staring at him, calmly tells him "Goodnight, Miles" before walking off as Miles asks if she's really just leaving.
That night, Miles is approached by a drunken Zoe who asks him where his "apple cheecked girlfriend" is at. Miles tells her how she didn't enjoy the party. Zoe asks if they had a fight and Miles says that she doesn't get him. Zoe remarks how "judgy people like her" with their "perfect little lives" have no idea what it's like to be someone with real problems. She says that once people like that make up their minds about them, they don't change. She then strips down to her bra and panties, and collapses on top of him, wrapping her arms around them. She says that whatever people like them do together, it doesn't matter. Miles says to "Let them think what they wanna think". Zoe then leans in, inches from kissing but Miles does not seem up for it.
However, Winston then pops up, snapping a picture of the two together. Miles, leaning up, asks what he's doing. Winston says he's preventing him from making a huge mistake. Miles says it's none of his business. Winston reminds him about his girlfriend who is awesome in every sense of the word and asks why he would want to screw that up. Miles says she was the one who took off and if he's supposed to run after her or something. Winston answers with a solid, "Yes!" because that's what you do when you screw up. Miles then appears to come to his senses and climbs away from a passed out Zoe. After dusting himself off, he yanks out some flowers from a nearby pot. He sees Zoe and, after some contemplation, tells Winston he can't leave her out there and to put her in the pool house or something. Winton says he can't lift Zoe by himself and they lift her up together. Winston then snaps a picture of them together to use as leaverage in the future on her. The two then carry her off.
Miles then tries to make his way out of the house and runs into Drew, who found out about the party and demands to know what is going on. Miles, still a bit drunk, says how it's a party and to have fun. However, Drew firmly says he is not going to leave him with this mess to clean up himself and threatens to call his father. Miles, though, says that means they're both getting into trouble since it was his job to make sure this never happened in the first place. He tells him to move, but Drew then reveals how his father came up with the "Miles Management Plan" and says how hsi father came up with several options on what to do in case he screwed up his campaign election again. Miles, despite being stunned, shoves him and storms out.
Later on, Miles arrives at Maya's house and knocks on her window, getting her attention. Maya, annoyed, gets up and opens it. She asks him why he is there and he says he came to apologize. He admits he was wrong and should have never thrown the party in the first place and stopped it when she asked. She asks him if he even cares about her. Miles tells her that he wouldn't be there if he didn't. He tries to insist that she's the only thing he cares about. Maya says he clearly cares about his father otherwise he wouldn't be putting so much energy into making him mad. Miles admist to her how he just wishes his father would stop treating him like crap. Maya simply tells him to not give his father a reason to then. She then shuts the window, closes the curtain and walks away. Miles tries to call out to her, but she ignores him.
The following morning, Miles is cleaning up the house from the party. Frankie asks if Maya accepted his apology, and he says that she didn't. They hear a car door close and Miles realizes their parents are home. His dad then walks in and sees the mess, and asks where Drew is since he had been assures nothing would happen. Miles tells him how Drew had nothing to do with the party and was the one who ended it. He asks Frankie if he is telling the truth and she confirms that Drew stayed on top of things. He tells her to go get ready for school and she leaves.
Miles explains how he threw the party because he was mad. His father asks if it was because he hired Drew as a sitter and Miles tells him that he knows about the affair. Stunned, his father is silenced. Miles goes on to explain how while mom may be okay with it - he isn't. His father, now calm, tries explaining it was complicated. But Miles says how he doesn't want an explanation, he just can't go along with his image of being a perfect son and smiling as though he's "man of the year". Relenting, his father says okay, but not to pull any more stunts like last night again. Miles promises him he won't. His dad says he will call a service to clean up, but Miles says it isn't need; it's his mess, he'll clean it up. His dad looks at him, clearly for once, approving of him. He walks off as Miles looks on.
