I do think there’s something romantic in there but even if there isn’t and the whole thing is a huge misunderstanding, we are still likely to get (even more) jealous love spat scenes that ruin the relationships between Hal, Carol and Kyle. Carol having romantic feelings for Kyle may be up to debate but the way the writers chose to handle the situation makes it obvious they want to exploit the love triangle cliché to stir up drama and damange established friendships, possibly to further future plot threads.
Eventually, yes. No matter how this turns out, a writer or an editor in the future will want them back together because they are the status quo couple.
How that will be executed is an entirely different question and to be honest, I’d rather have them broken up than to read some poorly constructed high school drama about them that does nothing but damage every character involved.

this is a “Hal and Carol looking boss as fuck” appreciation post
Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace
