That kind of complexity is interesting enough, but it seems too predictable and "Hollywood."
Normally I would agree, but not in this case. So far Berat-Rebek relationship didn't go farther than friendship, and their secret (now two secrets, as they are rebels) makes that bond very strong. But there is something, something tiny, delicate, hinted, easily missed if one doesn't pay attention, which makes it so "unhollywoodish" - that in this case it didn't even occur to me to compare it to always-present-Hollywood style blunt and unromantic romances. This suggestion of something more than friendship ("deeper" wouldn't be a right word, as friendships can go deep too and this one surely does) was so elusive I wasn't sure I didn't imagine it.

But I wouldn’t change Zija.

This speaks volumes for me. This is love. You love your friends too, so this doesn't have to be a romantic love (maybe yet), but there are strong, deep feelings in that one sentence. Full acceptance.
