Max's whole thing last season about never having been happy for a day since Liz was gone was...concerning. It could have worked just as well if seeing her had brought back a rush of dormant feelings, rather than him fixating on it for all of his 20s. Max is doing better this season, but sadly, that may be because Carina isn't focusing on him as much, heh. But Michael is doing a lot worse, and Liz, Kyle, and Alex aren't doing any better. And Michael's anger at Max bothers me, because Max was a traumatized child who at this point was fairly clearly abused prior to being put in the pod - acting as if Max has done something to Michael, or owes him something, is a really creepy attitude. If Max is "the savior", if that's why he was in the upper class, if that's why he was locked up and chained to the ground and frightened by seemingly Fire Guy, that is not a halo, it's a target. Nothing they know about this suggests Max is any better off for this perceived status, and Michael is old enough to comprehend that, so his jealousy is even more ridiculous than it's been in the past.
