Everything about Adora from S1-S4 was Catra always acting irrationally as soon as Adora became a factor and borderline obsessed with showing her up or proving she doesn't need her. The constant attempt to go "look how great I'm doing now" feels like something you see 99% of the time when it comes to a romantic love relationship and not a broken platonic one. The kind of self destruction is linked to a lot deeper issues then "my sister has new friends"

Yeah. Adoraís feelings are a lot less blatant and she has a separate, more pronounced interest in a different type of woman entirely that I could totally see someone reading her side of the relationship as sisterly. But Catra? I have a hard time understanding people who can watch her act out and obsess over Adora for four seasons and not see it as her being in crazed romantic agony.

Maybe itís something you need to have lived to pick up on.

To be fair to Catra, she hadn't seen what Adora saw. To Catra, Adora was suddenly saying and doing crazy things that made no sense. It's easier for Catra to think that the Princesses had somehow tainted Adora than to question the Horde.

I think itís more that Catra wasnít willing to question herself and her role in the world. She never shared Adoraís naÔvetť when it came to the Hordeís true nature, and so there was never any big moral revelation for her in the first season. She already knew the Horde was evil (she laughs when Adora tries to present this as breaking news) and had deeply internalized her abusive upbringing to the point where she didnít think she could do better.

Glimmer and Bowís romance is fine. Itís low-key and entirely out of focus, but thatís how it is sometimes when two lifelong friends get together after preemptively sorting their drama.

Like Catra and Adora, the most explicit teasing of it prior to the final season actually comes very briefly in the first. I donít know if that was intentional or not, but I actually appreciate that it wasnít constantly at the forefront of their relationship.
