As for the poly bit? He wasn't able to handle such extensive love and she didn't explain it well enough. She said love is expansive. Got that right but whoever wrote the plot didn't really know what that meant as an act. Just a concept.
It seems possible that she may not have been able to explain it at all.
I mean, it's like trying to explain reasoning to a dog; a smart dog can, in fact, understand quite a bit of language and perform an astounding amount of deductive and inductive reasoning, but there are some hard limits to it's intelligence that make trying to teach a dog how to save and plan and execute hard.
Heck, it's hard to teach a person how to save, plan, and execute too!
