I just LOVE this whole issue with “Meddling Maya”. I mean, one season ago, people blamed her for not being able to “save” Cam, and said she was responsible for her boyfriend killing himself and not being able to see the signs and stopping him from doing it.

So what’s her reaction to not acting when Cam was still alive, and then losing her boyfriend to suicide?

She becomes a “meddler”.

She does the thing that everybody blamed her for NOT doing a season ago.

She has spent all season long trying to meddle as much as possible because she CAN’T let things go any longer. She can’t just watch someone she cares about make decisions that scare her, or put themselves in harm’s way. People who say Maya is annoying and needs to back off getting into people’s business don’t seem to get that her pushiness and need to insert herself into other people’s business comes DIRECTLY from losing Cam - that no, even if the show doesn’t bring him up every two seconds and spends all her time crying her eyes out, she has in no way forgotten him.

You can bet that she has never forgotten that day at the hospital after Cam broke his arm - when she knew, had that gut feeling somewhere deep down that she couldn’t ignore, that he had hurt himself. That he was capable of hurting himself. That he was in trouble, and he would lie to her face about it even when she KNEW the truth, and Cam knew that she knew. You can bet that on the day he died, she thought of that day at the hospital, and wondered that if she’d said something to ANYBODY - Simpson, his billet family, his actual parents, even Dallas or the hockey coach - Cam might still be alive. That silence, that inaction, is something that is going to always haunt her. That failure to DO - to meddle - is a daily reminder to her that she failed Cam. She lives with that reminder every single day that she COULD have spoken up and didn’t.

She failed him, and now he’s gone.

So of course, her natural reaction to that paralysis and ignoring her gut and pretending like everything would be okay, that if she just acts like it’s none of her business then everything will just work out, is to do the complete opposite. To do whatever it takes to help people - even if they don’t seem like they need it, want it, or appreciate it - because what could be the outcome if she doesn’t? Losing someone else she cares about.

People need to quit being so hard on Maya. A year ago she was the girl who let her boyfriend die, and now she’s the girl who needs to leave people alone. So who should she be that would make the fandom happy? The ignoring, look-the-other-way, it’s-not-my-business girl who didn’t speak up about Cam’s habit of self-harm and could have possibly gotten him professional intervention before he killed himself? Or the girl who never lets things go, won’t mind her own damn business, and is constantly being “annoying” and “needs to keep her mouth shut” and is ruining everyone’s life? Which is it? Because the vast majority of people don’t seem to be happy with her either way. She can’t win.

Maya might be pushy and constantly think she knows best, but she’s also someone who puts her closest relationships on the line if it means that she can stop someone else she cares about from getting hurt. She was willing to ruin her friendship with Tristan, end her her romance with Miles, and willing to deal with Zig constantly pushing her away and bullying her, all because she refused to look the other way again. Her “annoying” behavior is a direct reaction to the fact that the last time she looked away, someone she cared about went away and never came back.

Maya never really dealt with Cam’s death in the first place. All the hurt and confusion and abandonment was internalized, as well as her anger over it, and instead of being able to deal with it she tried to do everything she could to avoid feeling that kind if pain. She tried numbing it with drinking and hooking up with Harry back in Season 12, tried starting over with Miles, and now she’s thrown herself into trying to keep other people she cares about from getting hurt. She was protecting Tristan and looking out for him. Tristan’s angry and vulnerable and hurting, but maybe he’ll come around and accept that she was just trying to do right by the people that mean something in her life.

In “Believe Part One”, Drew can’t work the compass so he gets lost…

Didn’t know if anyone else made this connection, so I’m going to post anyways. Did Degrassi actually have continuity? No this can’t be true.
