Throughout the Series
In The 48, she is first seen decontaminating Monty's old room. This gets Clarke worried, and so Clarke breaks the glass in her room and unlocks the door. She then removes Maya's mask, contaminating Maya. Clarke takes a glass shard, and holds Maya hostage with it. Clarke tries to extract info from Maya, but Maya is too scared to give her a straight answer. Maya then complains to Clarke that she needed only a bit more time until Clarke was fully decontaminated. Maya herself is then decontaminated, and she and Clarke from that point forward in the episode have a unstable relationship. Maya is seen flirting with Jasper at one of the dinner tables during dinner. When Clarke tries to escape, Maya points a gun at Clarke, as she knows everyone will die if they open Mount Weather's door. Jasper however is able to calm down Clarke and stop her.
In Inclement Weather, Maya is seen briefly in the episode talking to Jasper. When Clarke arrives, they are both still seen to show a dislike towards each other.
In Reapercussions, Maya shows Jasper a warehouse full of paintings, and the pair have some bonding time. They almost kiss until guards interrupt them, and they both flee the warehouse before they are caught. Later, they have breakfast together and Jasper gets Maya to help him find out what the deal is with Clarke missing.
In Human Trials, Maya is first seen entering The 100's bedroom, where Monty and Jasper are arguing over going after Clarke. Maya intervenes and says that Jasper should stay, as she tells him that it is safer in Mount Weather. Suddenly though, a radiation breach occurs, and Maya suffers from serious radiation burns. Monty and Jasper try to help, but no one seems to listen. While Maya is on a hospital bed suffering from her radiation burns, Jasper decides to do a blood transfusion in order to save Maya. Ultimately it works, and Maya wakes up in perfect condition.
In Fog of War, she is seen entering the delinquents bed room, coming across Monty and Jasper. She walks in asking if the two wanted to get pizza, while holding a note that says "Act Natural, they're listening!". Jasper and Monty look at the note in confusion, and play along. Maya then reveals another note, saying that the radiation leak that happened not long ago was not an accident. The group then walks off with Maya revealing to Monty and Jasper Mount Weather's secret, showing them the hanging bodies of the grounders. Maya lets them know that if they don't do something soon, they may end up like the grounders they are looking at.
In Long Into an Abyss, she is mentioned by Jasper when Miller asks whether or not the security cameras can see them breaking into Dante's office. Jasper tells him not to worry as he said Maya has already disabled them.
In Remember Me, she is seen along with Jasper, Miller and Monty working together to try and figure out a way out of Mount Weather. The group decides they will need a radio to escape Mount Weather, and to do so they must find the wires that lead to them. They group at night enters the art gallery in order to find the wires, which they determine are behind a wall in the gallery. Miller breaks down the wall with his hammer, and they get what they need. However while Jasper and Maya are putting up a painting to cover the wall, a guard comes by and notices the two. Jasper kisses Maya to avoid suspicion on what they were really doing, and they carry on in their mission.
In Coup de Grâce, she is seen comforting Jasper, telling him that everything will be okay and they will find Monty. Maya decides to help him by re checking the harvest compound, but until then Jasper should not do anything dumb. When Maya is at medical, a Mount Weather guard confronts her and asks where she can find someone, and Maya tells him that she saw him elsewhere. When Maya enters the harvesting compound, she sees Bellamy Blake, and decides to help him. But before she can do anything else, the same Mount Weather guard walks in and confronts Maya as to why she is there. But suddenly, Bellamy Blake jumps in and attacks him. With the help of a grounder named Echo, the three take down the guard. Maya and Bellamy then understand who each other are, and work together to free everyone else. On their way to see the 47, Bellamy comes across a group of students. One of them walks up the Bellamy and says his dad is in the scout unit. As he turns around Bellamy and Maya realize the boy was the father of the Mount Weather guard they just killed.
Before they can enter the 47's room, a lockdown on their quarters was ordered by the new president Cage Wallace, and Bellamy and Maya are forced to run away and rethink their plan.
In Rubicon, she is briefly seen aiding Bellamy. Maya helps Bellamy with finding a way to Dante, as Jasper told Bellamy to find him.
In Resurrection, Maya is helps a delinquent named Fox who was kidnapped by Mountain Men. She along with Bellamy take her to her fathers, and ask of her father to keep her safe until further notice. Later Cage confronts Maya and kidnaps her. Cage attempts to use Maya as a way to make the delinquents surrender, by putting her on level 5 with the delinquents.

Thankfully Bellamy comes through the garbage disposal and allows Maya to travel through the disposal, making her way to safety.

Notes and Trivia
- Due to the lack of sunlight, Maya and the Mountain Men lack a high level of melanin, and therefore, their skin is unnaturally pale.
- Artificial light doesn't react with the melanin in our skin.
- Melanin controls how dark a person's skin tone is.
- Hereditary traits also affect a person's skin tone, which could also make Maya unnaturally pale.
- In The 48, Maya said she had a Vitamin D treatment. Vitamin D is necessary for normal bone density and is naturally created by the skin when exposed to the sun.
- Maya's mother was apart of a movement to stop Mount Weather from kidnapping Grounders.
