You know, I think the biggest difference between RoboMay and Melinda is really just the talking

Melinda doesn’t push, she doesn’t pry. (Maybe sometimes, when it’s for a mission or something). Other people give her information, or she figures things out in her head without asking. She almost always keeps her thoughts/questions to herself. 

Which, by the way, I think is another great yin-yang aspect she has with Phil. Phil is constantly asking questions out loud. It’s how he thinks (i.e., the Tai Chi scene). He also pokes and prods and pushes people until they give him an answer. Phil and Melinda balance each other out that way. I’m not sure Melinda would have ever told Phil about seeing him when she died, except that he kept dogging her about it. RoboMay, on the other hand, DOES ask questions frequently and pushes for answers. About missions and information (especially about the Darkhold, of course), but also when it comes to Phil (which makes sense, because whether she knows it or not, she IS on a mission, so she naturally pushes). 

I think the biggest distinction between them is not that Melinda doesn’t think/feel the same way as RoboMay, but that with Melinda, there’s always something holding her back from actually saying it. That’s why I’ve always headcanoned that Phil would have to be the one to cross the boundary in their relationship, because Melinda won’t do it–unless maybe she KNOWS he feels the same way. I don’t think Melinda would have told Phil to “start taking chances” the way RoboMay did, nor do I think she would have told him about going to Ireland together (at least not so obviously)–and not because she doesn’t want to say it, not because she doesn’t feel the same, but because she would stop herself from saying it. 

RoboMay’s programming, on the other hand, lets her overcome Melinda’s apprehension/fear/whatever it is that holds her back. It removes that barrier that Melinda created in order to stay distanced from Phil just enough that they didn’t cross that line between friends/partners and lovers. That’s why things have been progressing so quickly between RoboMay and Phil, whereas he and Melinda have been moving at a slower pace since the beginning of the show, and most notably this season. That’s my theory, anyway.

OK o K CAN WE JUST REMEMBER HOW IMPORTANT THAT PART WAS

BECAUSE UNTIL NOW (OR AT LEAST IN THE LOCALIZED VERSION) FLYNN WAS MOSTLY PRESENTED AS A FAIRLY UPTIGHT AND GROUCHY KNIGHT

AND THEN THIS HAPPENS AND FEELS COME SLAPPING YOU IN THE FACE BECAUSE NOT ONLY DOES YURI ALWAYS PUT HIMSELF DOWN FOR FLYNN BUT THERE’S ALSO A LEGIT REASON TO IT

HE KNOWS FLYNN IS BEST SUITED TO FIND A QUICK SOLUTION TO THE ONCOMING WAR, AND THE SHEER FAITH HE PUTS IN HIS BEST FRIEND NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE ME. HE’S WILLING TO RISK DYING FOR THAT - AND EVEN THEN HE HAD LITTLE TO NO DOUBT THAT FLYNN WOULD COME BACK BEFORE ANYTHING OF THE SORT HAPPENED 

NOT TO MENTION FLYNN STARTS SHOWING MORE AND MORE OPEN AFFECTION FOR HIS FRIEND, TO THE AUDIENCE AT LEAST. “I WOULD NEVER DREAM OF ABANDONING HIM” THIS RIGHT THERE JUST PROVES HOW MUCH YURI MEANS TO HIM AND THAT THE TRUST IS MUTUAL, THAT FLYNN AKNOWLEDGES THE RISKS YURI TAKES FOR THEIR DREAM’S SAKE

OVER AND OVER AGAIN THROUGHOUT THE GAME HE KNOWS HOW FAR YURI IS WILLING TO GO AND THAT IS PART OF WHY HE WORKS SO HARD - SO THAT HIS BEST FRIEND WON’T HAVE TO RESORT TO SUCH ENDANGERING MEASURES ANYMORE, ALL THAT WHILE TRUSTING HIM WITH HAVING HIS BACK AND MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICES FOR HIMSELF

SORRY FOR RAMBLING IN CAPS BUT IDK MAN, THESE TWO WOULD NEVER FORSAKE THE OTHER IN A MILLION YEARS - THAT’S HOW STRONG THEIR BOND IS
