ANGEL: We’ll go half-speed until…
CORDELIA: No need, I got it. Three years of Varsity Cheer Squad, I only ever had to be shown a move once.

Bloodied Not Beaten
Miko’s grown on me over the course of the series. I have to admit to disappointment that unlike Jack or even Raph, we’ve never had any sort fo narrative contact with her sponsor family, especially during the diaspora of Team Prime during the evacuation of Jasper.
I get the feeling that her seemingly constant need to earn the approval of gigantic robot aliens is speaking to a profound sense of abandonment. My headcanon is that her family are terribly traditional and by sending her to America they’ve effectively given up on her and are hoping her metal-loving aggressiveness will burn itself out. In effect, they want America to break her.
Fortuately (or not), the family she ended up with are either profoundly indifferent to her wellbeing and are in it purely for the money they’re receiving to look after her, or else they’re the most lovely couple imaginable who want her to have the time of her life while she’s in their care and are happy to let her have her head. My money however is on the former.
