Episode Summary


It's the Summer, and a group of students are heading off to Paris. When a former West Drive star shows up, Tristan instantly bonds with her, leaving Maya behind. She tries to fit in with the two of them, but things don't go very well during a concert. Clare tries to spice up her long distance relationship with Eli. She also gets a call from the hospital. Imogen starts crushing on Adam, and thinks Becky leaving for the Summer is a perfect opportunity for the two of them to bond.

  • Miles Hollingsworth III

    A good-looking rich boy who is perfect for the show. He is a troublemaker with a arrogant attitude, but kind heart. He has two siblings named Frankie and Hunter, and has an abusive father who's both emotional and physical named Miles Hollingsworth II. In my opinion, he is a mixture of: Peter Stone, Declan & Fiona Coyne, Craig Manning, Spinner Mason, Sean Cameron, Eli Goldsworthy, Cam Saunders, JT Yorke, and Jane Vaughn. His primary love interest is Maya Matlin. Miles is honestly one of my favorite Degrassi characters in the Degrassi history.moreless
