Though many here will disagree with me, Maks' behavior last night towards Hope during the group dance was unacceptable. It's regularly excused as passion. It's been overlooked with Debi, Brandy, and now Hope. If he's burned out or angry, choose a different situation where he can be the top dog instead of taking it out on his partner.
I'm not a Derek fan, but last night, he outshined Maks in being able to teach someone in an affirming way.
