Haven't seen the episode yet, but on the subject of Fiance cliche' in anime/manga/LN stories. I'm fine with them except for how they always seem to diminish the female character. Most of time I end up thinking it's the author doing everything he can to make you ignore the fact that none of this would be happening if the female character just stepped up and rejected the asshole fiance/blackmailing rapist/exboyfriend. All this angst is usually avoidable if the female would just be honest with the main character.

In this case, the way Asuna and Kirito were like a married couple it makes it hard to believe they could be split up by jealousy or insecurity. Thats why I worry about how they are going to try and pull it off.
