|Months later, Maya and the rest of the staff were instructed to help Darryl throw Paula a surprise party. It was in celebration of the fact that Darryl got Paula's enrollment at law school pushed through so she could start immediately. Maya and her co-workers were to appear after Darryl told Paula and signaled for them them. They did as they were told but Maya was distracted by Paula's crying. Darryl was oblivious to her distress and had Maya fetch him the present he bought Paula. When Paula loudly burst into tears, Maya was annoyed when Darryl offered to fire her as a way of cheering her up ("All Signs Point to Josh...Or is it Josh's Friend?"). Sometime later, Maya approached Darryl about teaming up since he wanted to be in Rebecca Bunch's new close circle of friends just like she did.
She thought together they could think of a way to crash a party Rebecca was having at her new home. Darryl reluctantly agreed and after work they strategized in the boardroom. When Darryl obnoxiously turned down all her ideas Maya asked why he treated her so poorly. Darryl confessed he saw too much of the needy side of himself in her and didn't like it. He apologized and offered that whatever idea she had next they'd do. Together they went to Rebecca's place and performed a dance routine shocking everyone there (♫ We Gonna Keep it Rolling ♫). A video of the dance was uploaded on YouTube and recieved 1,800 views. At work Maya and Darryl were asked by their co-workers to do the entire performance in the break room. Maya was touched when Darryl named the dance after her ("Who Needs Josh When You Have a Girl Group?").
