Conflict History

Season 13


The two first officially meeting.

In Close to Me Miles shows up at Maya's house with a large bouquet of roses. Maya say that she needs to talk to him, but before they do, Miles he gets down on one knee while holding the flowers out. He asks her officially to be his date to the semi formal, to which she happily accepts. After they share a quick kiss, Miles notices Zig in her kitchen. With a troubled look on his face he asks, "What is he doing here?" Maya says, "That is what I wanted to talk to you about" as Miles and Zig stare at each other.

Maya asks Miles, while to school, how many time she needs to say she is sorry. Miles tells how how another guy sleeping in her house, still clearly fuming. Maya ask if he trusts her and he says yes, but that Zig is the one that can't be trusted. He brings up how Zig is a drug dealer, but Maya blows it off as only a rumour. Maya tries insisting Zig is a good guy and brings up the idea that they should all hang out together at the dance. Miles pauses before he says, "Your joking..." Maya says please. He agrees, saying she is lucky to be cute.

Later on, at Maya's house, Zig and Maya get into a fight regarding him making amends with Miles. When Maya says that Miles is at least willing to make an effort, Zig asks if that makes him a better guy that he is. Maya, without hesitation, says yes, clearly hurting him. Miles then arrives, coming to pick Maya up. He compliments her on her dress and she gives him a kiss. As she goes to get her coat and purse, Miles and Zig have a short stare down. He asks her if she's okay and she says yes, now that he's here. The two then leave.


Miles and Zig arguing at the dance.

At the dance, Miles and Maya share a romantic moment and kiss, only to be interrupted when Zig approaches and the other Rubber Room kids showing up as well. Maya and Miles are surprised that they came after all. After Zig explains how they snuck in through a side door, Miles offers to get Zig a drink.  

At the punch bowl, the two watch as Maya dances by herself. Miles asks if he saw the game they played. Zig says that he's not into "watching a bunch of meatheads chase a ball around" as they continue watching her. Miles says he's just trying to be nice and Zig says not to do him any favors. Miles tells him he's doing it for Maya because he cares. He then says that if he cared about her, then he would try as well. Zig, continuing to stare at Maya, says he does care about her... a lot. Miles looks at him and asks him, "As a friend?" Zig says that it's "hard to stay friendly when you sleep down the hall from them". Miles stares at him for a moment before warning him to keep her out of his drug involved lifestyle. Zig says he'll deal whatever he wants, whenever he wants with whomever he wants. Zig tells him to "play nice" before walking away from an angered Miles.


Zig being escorted after Miles make a report about him being a drug dealer.

Later on, during the dance, Zig is called by school security to open his locker as they have received reports that he is carrying drugs. Miles shows up, asking what is going on. Grace immediately accuses him of being the rat, but Maya insists Miles wouldn't do a thing like that. Miles insists that she is telling the truth, but Grace notices that Miles looked away from Maya as he did so. After Grace tells her that Miles is lying, Maya looks at him in the eye and asks him to tell her the truth. Miles looks away and says that Zig is a huge jerk, revealing himself as the culprit. 

In Sparks Will Fly (1), Zig is gloating at Miles after Zig was asking Maya to go to have lunch with him.
