It's better to have no romance than a bad one. It doesn't matter how they've shown this scene, it'd be stupid as we don't know Alex.

They should have saved a scene like that for SamXLara and let this unkown nerd get the Steph treatment, just saying

we don't even know Alex's name for half the game, seriously how am I supposed to care about him?

Sam should have died at the end like originally intended.

If Steph had survived, would she perhaps have put out a bit for Alex, and maybe gotten them both grabbed by the Solarii due to their inattention on the Endurance?

That might work, Alex goes over the side with bullet holes in his chest and Steph is dragged off to a fate of... whatever.

Lara sees Steph taken and vows to go back and save her in the next reboot, maybe...

Better than acting as if she never existed...

I was also nervous for my first kiss on the lips so I understand his reluctance.

Ok I know I'm responding to a very old reply here, but -

I see your argument and I agree, they probably would have been blown up. BUT the thing is, there's about a million other explosions in this game that certainly should have killed Lara, but they happened anyway and she lived, so why is this one any different. ALSO if they really wanted to push realism, she should have died shortly after she fell on that rebar in the first moments of the game. She waded through dirty ass bacteria ridden water over and over again with a giant gaping wound in her gut. If she hadn't died from hemorrhaging, infection would have done her in real quick, y'know?

I 100% agree tho. I love your take on Lara's character a lot more, too. just the no-nonsense additude. I love TR2013 but the story is an absolute trainwreck
It's my favorite game of the reboot trilogy, and honestly one of my favorite games of all time, but I can admit that the storytelling is wack and this scene in particular is really dumb.

Alex Weiss is the definition of
'gay nerd'.

is why he moved his head. internalized feelings are bad.

He had feelings for Lara. This is confirmed in-game via his diary. The diary is found just before zip-lining down to the Endurance. Lara didnít approve this.

I actually had an idea for a fanfiction along these lines back in the 1st year of te release of TR2013. Wonder if I should try and revisit it.
