Added DiffLines:

* Flanderization: She may have been slightly impulsive and childlike in the first season, but was ultimately on par with her friends in the intelligence department. In season two, they took her impulsivity and childlike nature UpToEleven and being a complete ditz became her defining character trait. She still showed evidence of the old Alex and even had moments in which she was more clever than the crew, but she was 'the dumb one' from season two onward.


* FatAndProud: Averted.
** BerserkButton: {{Played with}}. Max doesn't get upset when people make fun of his weight, just really sad.
