Bad interview, but interviewer liked me?

Hey all! I just recently had a Superday for IB. There were 3 interviews, and two interviews when well.

For one particular interviewer, my answer for a behavioral question (why IB) was bad and he sort of called me out about it. He also was grilling me a ton about my previous experiences and was asking very specific questions. However, it seemed like he liked me and made jokes with me, and even told me to email him about something we were talking about. He also responded to my email saying it was great to meet me. 

Would me having subpar answers be "overlooked" ?
