aha that’s kind of the greatness of it, how subtle it was.. it’s when they’re chatting on Chloe’s bed before Max gets dressed, and Chloe drops subtle hints that there were other things in her life besides “boy toys”. And Max, having a finely tuned gaydar herself, points out that Chloe is hard to picture with most guys, to which she confirms “Rachel came along to rescue [her]”. Max quickly joins the dots that their relationship was more of a romantic crush than platonic, but rather than taking the conversation down the standard “omg so ur gay/bi/whatevs like how did u know have u come out to ur parents yet etcetc”, Max is just cool. It’s totally natural for Chloe to be crushing on Rachel, and the fact that they’re both girls isn’t even relevant. That’s the beauty of the moment.
