In this world, Miles never calls Sawyer "Boss".
"Partner" in public, "Jim" at home, "fuck, yes, harder" in the interrogation room, sweat-soaked chest slammed into the one-way glass, Sawyer's badge slamming into his back with the rhythm they have formed after so much of this togetherness.
He is relieved to find Sawyer's lie revolves around a decades-long vendetta, and not another lover.
And if this Miles could see that Miles, how that Miles has no idea if Sawyer is even still alive, he would thank god things have changed. He would tell that Miles to find his Sawyer, stop calling him boss, switch to I love you, now.
