So Sandy is actually holding up her end of the relationship, but it getting to the confrontation point successfully knocked down the pedestal Mike had her on.

I just wonder how long it will last something has got to give and especially with their trust newly broken i think a long distance relationship will just make the doubt and pain worse

Oh my god, how the classroom in the background start to blur and squiggle to accentuate his anxiety building up. Such a nice touch!

I’m honestly concerned he’s about to have a significant panic attack based on the swirling background

Looks like Mike's report card is going to be nothing but F- for every class real soon.

Mike has the right to his feelings but it's also really rich coming from him, seeing as how he went all "I never stopped thinking of you, I always had a reminder, I chose the scarf thinking about your eyes, let's make out". This relationship was over a year ago, just make it official already.

Typical sadist teacher. Always calling out the one who looks like they aren't paying attention.

Honestly I've been there and yeah, it won't feel ok. It's not supposed to. Trust was broken and that can cause long term damage in a relationship. Always wondering about the "what ifs"

"What if they're just doing this to pacify me? Or telling me one thing while doing another?"

The fact is she put him on the back burner for someone else and that's going to be a lingering sting.

Doubt is powerful and so is regret.

Seems like Mike is beginning to understand that perhaps his LDR isn't all that it's cracked up to be. Now that the emotional wave is calming down, he's gonna reflect on his "relationship" with Sandy. Mike redemption arc?
