it's a like an ipod with only one song to listen over and over
And the only problem I have is that if what happened in EOTW was part of the reason Max acted the way he did towards Liz after Alex's death, then in a way it is proof that he didn't really forgive her, at least not completely anyway. People can say they forgive someone without truly meaning it, and real forgiveness is about being able to move past the hurt and not using it as a reason to not believe in a friend. And I can also apply that same logic to Liz. Even though she tried to act as if she had forgiven Max for sleeping with Tess, her big blowup in Ch-ch-changes was prove that she hadn't really forgiven Max either.
the problem is that they were always in love with each other.
you can forgive but you can't forget. and when you don't forget it still hurts.
it wasn't about cheating but more about the implications of some phrases that for Max affected their friendship too in that moment.
i understand both of them. they understood each other, they forgave each other but it was still hurting them and when they were more vulnerable their feelings exploded. I believe that they will never really forget. this doesn't mean that they didn't forgive each other because by the end of the show they did it.
again, it wasn't about Liz sleeping with Kyle for me. it was about "you're dangerous and i don't want to die for you" "Alex died for your fault"
maybe what i wrote into the other replies wasn't clear enough but i don't know how to explain it again without repeating the same things. i tried to show the links and i said more than once that it wasn't really about sleeping with Kyle. it's like if no one really read what i wrote.
maybe the problem was that Max believed her too much. because he believed that she really meant what she said more than once.
ps: her little speech from TEOTW?
