still haven't let you go just yet

  • Maya in GM TFP: What you did makes has a lot of angry feelings inside of me. I don't want to be angry anymore.
  • Basically everyone in the fandom at the time, regardless of ship: YES THIS EPISODE IS SO POWERFUL MAYA FORGIVING HERSELF AND WANTING TO LET HER ANGER GO SUCH A POWERFUL LESSON THIS IS SO IMPORTANT SO MANY KIDS WILL BENEFIT FROM THIS YES WELL DONE SHOW, GOOD JOB 👏👏👏
  • Maya in GM Upstate: Right now, I'm feelin' a little angry.
  • Riley: Good! Who are you angry at?
  • Maya: *says it's Riley but proceeds to rant angrily about her father*
  • People who apparently don't want Maya to grow: See, no it's GOOD that Maya is angry again because otherwise she had turned into Riley because she wanted to have the same experiences with Lucas and get to know him the exact same way Riley did so she'd know Riley was safe with Lucas! Josh is definitely right even though he wasn't there for any of it and that's not what we watched happen, why would you question Josh's OBVIOUSLY omniscient powers you stupid owl?! Riley SAVED MAYA by contributing to making her feel angry about her father again!
  • Me: So you're telling me Maya was like...lying or something when she said she didn't want to feel angry anymore? That was just Maya trying to copy Riley so she could test Lucas? Maya forgiving herself was just a big show so she could test drive Lucas and really it was all about Riley the whole time and had nothing to do with Maya herself? Okeeday. 👍
