I'm sure QM respects Alex, but there is actually lot more interaction and smiling between Mary and Margarethe than Alex and Margarethe. I also think Henrik, from what he said in the PDV interview, respects and appreciates Mary a lot too. And yes, I also see more smiling/ interaction between Mary and Henrik for that matter than Alex and Henrik. But again, this is just what we see, which may not tell the whole story. But that QM does not like Mary is as believable as saying QM does not like Alex - we just don't know.
