I doubt it, but I hope that actress girl gets a turn next.

I feel bad for Serizawa at this point. She admitted her love for Natsuo DURING AN ACTING ROLE!

We all know how freaking dense Natsuo is. I guarantee the first panel next week is "Wow you're acting is amazing Serizawa." I feel terrible for this girl sometimes.

Side Note: Rui fans I think Natsuo used that moment from his "First Time" to fuel his acting fire. Foreshadow?!?!

Certainly the scene is a reversal of the breakup between Rui and Natsuo (and probably the first time he has truly made it into the skin of someone else) , so even without the kiss it's a major turning point for him.
From here I guess there are two likely scenarios. Natsuo understands the motivations of Rui and gets his closure, but ultimately rejects Serizawa since he still could not reciprocate her feelings. Alternatively, he initially hesitates with Serizawa but (in a somewhat unsurprising turn) Hina convinces him to accept her. Their relationship grows steady and he may even get closure but it will be a mayor kick for Rui, adding drama to her arc (which is totally pointed there).
Who knows...

I am sure this current development is a red herring, but I am at least allowed to dream, am I not?

A healthy relationship? Nah, not gunna happen.

The kiss was bloody good, plus Hina's imagination kicking in (I am discovering interesting sides to myself o_O). I certainly enjoyed these last 3 episodes.
I believe the spoiler lies in the panels between Kuyanagi and Hiyama: Serizawa is still infatuated to an unhealthy degree, so the whole relationship must be doomed. Mind you, we then get to see Miyabi's more human side, with her finally getting less dramatic and more self-deprecating – a very nice development.
Or, to dig a bit deeper into the past: Miyabi is the spitting image of Sho-san's mother from GE, and anybody who has read GE knows what Sho has to settle for:

The problem I have with this arc is that there is zero chance we're getting a Serizawa ending and even putting aside the fact that this is three painful experiences in a row for Natsuo without any kind of happiness between, Serizawa does not deserve the kind of hurt this is going to bring her.

Exactly.

Edit: Sorry, I got interrupted before I could write more.

Thinking about the overlaying theme: If he hit a block, Natsuo always had to fall back on Rui or Hina to be able to be creative. Accordingly, unless we see a complete about turn, with Nat-kun finding a new release for his creative juices (giving up completely – very unlikely, acting – very unlikely, taking Miyabi as his new muse for writing – unlikely, or even becoming a fully fledged playwright to the exclusion of all other writing– very unlikely), we will end up with one of the sisters before long, and Miyabi being shown the door. This just reeks of the treatment of Sho in GE.
The way Serizawa is depicted as being overly obsessive, with jelousy in the wings, albeit of the yuri kind, and a slut for her mentor, we are apparently lead down the road of "she is not good enough for Natsuo", so as to not feel too heartbroken, once he leaves her for pastures more familiar. In this respect, Sensei has probably acknowledged that her treatment of Sho in GE was just bloody mean. Realistic, probably, but mean from a reader's point of view.
Nevertheless, this slightly negative background of Miyabi's still feels a bit weak, as she has so far not shown enough darkness to deserve this kind of treatment.

Meh. This latest chapter was so foreseeable, it hurt even more to read it.
