I want Alex/Kyle too!
I'm just not feeling Alex/Michael at all, but there's something there when Alex and Kyle are together. Maybe it's their longer history, troubled as it was, and because they're on the same page which let's them work well together that I can see their relationship becoming romantic. Alex and Michael always seem to be at odds and turn the angst up to eleven every chance they get; it's annoying and not very fun to watch.
I'm not sure I can root for Maria/Michael as long she's kept in the dark about the trio, Michael in particular. It would help if Michael trusted Maria enough to tell her without her having to figure it out herself. Michael probably respects Maria more than anyone, but until I see him actively put her first, I can't support them as a couple.
I was caught off guard because I did not recognize what song it was until the refrain, then it hit me square in the feels.
