Jewel said one time that if there was anyone she thought her character should end up with it was Ronon. It looks like just that is happening. Looking forward to seeing where this goes!

I loved how awkward ronon was at the end of the ep!

I'm really surprised with how natural the chemistry between the two characters is. It was a little weird what Ronon said about thinking she was weak... I dunno, it was a little mean I guess. But still, they look good together.

Like I just said in another thread, I think he's been letting himself get tagged sparring on purpose when he knows she's on duty... just to let her sew him up. He likes her...

It's so cute.

To steal a line from Miss Congeniality, "he likes her, he thinks she's sexy, he wants to date her."

LOLz

Someone should edit the scenes and replace the score with Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On".

I agree. I thought it was going to be far too cheesy on screen, but there was some great chemistry. Their scenes were the best in the episode, IMO.

I concur! :ronan: Hey where's the Keller image?

Funny thing was right when Ronan walked into the Infirmary I went ".... He's there a lot... They couldn't be trying to... :eek:" then as it unfolded, I actually liked the direction it was going. I think it's clear that Keller has self confidence issues about her place on such an advanced and dangerous mission and I think Ronan's strong, supportive, loyal side is a great fit for her. And of course his history of being in love with a doctor/nurse is a strong psychological factor here. That kinda thing happens IRL a lot.

Him calling her weak seemed a bit mean to me, but I thought it was cute how he tryed to say it in a nice way:D I find it funny that he has to hurt himself to see Keller, wouldn't it just be easier (and less painful) to just talk to her? *shudders at the thought of having to get so many stitches*

It was cute but I don't see them having anything really in common with each other besides being locked up the same room together. If the writers want it to work, they have to expand on it a bit.

it will be nice to see an emotional side to ronon too he is always so blocked off and bad ass, this makes him a lot more whole as a character. and what a choice lol :ronan:

Well, you saw a little bit of emotion from him when he was talking about his past relationship with Melena. (for the first time! Finally)

I thought they were cute together. Big strong Ronon and small delicate Keller. Altho I think we've already seen that she has it in her to be just as handy with a sidearm as anyone else.

I hope the writers explore this relationship in the future-- but SLOWLY, please... let it develop naturally & tentatively. And I also agree w/ others that Keller needs a little character development. Basically I like her character but she needs to be fleshed out so she's not just a caricature. More human and less "little miss perfect, female Doogie Houser." They've already started down that path in humanizing her more, so I hope they continue.

I love how right before he made his move, he smelled her hair. Pimp move. That little smile she had right before they were to kiss was good too.

Their personalities compliment each other pretty well, actually.

I'd smell her hair any day. It is kinda weird because I always pictured Ronin and Teyla together making klingon love(no descriptions please), but I think this will could be good for his character development

I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this pairing, and I was kind of dreading this part of the episode, but it worked. It was a nice balance too, especially with Ronon at the end of the episode. I'll be kind of interested to see where, and how far they take this development.

I didn't think Ronan calling her weak was mean, it was obviously a compliment. He knows she's not weak, and that's his way of telling her. Albeit a little backwards, but that's his style. He was just complimenting her the way only Ronan could.

Yeah although I can see how getting beat up to see Keller is less ackward then to talk...

the way it was said sounded like that was his first impression of her and that hes realised shes not as weak as he first thought

I really wanted these guys to, in the words of Marvin Gaye, 'Let's get it on'.

The chemistry was superb! Better than Sheppard and that easy squeezy Traveler woman.

I would have liked some more interesting dialogue between the two other than Ronan telling her about the girl in Sateda, since we already know this information. WOuld have been a great opportunity to tell us a little more about Ronan's past. Maybe they could have made each other laugh more or something, but even so, I still loved their scenes.

I don't think Ronan was being mean when he said he thought she was weak at first upon meeting her. I'm always honest with people especially when I feel comfortable with them. So for me, it showed how Ronan over the past few months has formed a close relationship with Keller. Close enough to reveal a secret thought of his and knowing Keller so well as not to be offended by his honesty.

And he doesn't feel that way now - being told you are not weak by Ronan is a massive compliment to Keller considering, as she said, has always been seen as weak!

They should get married and be the first pegasus/milkyway baby!

I loved their chemistry. I'm not a shipper normally, but this pairing doesn't bother me at all.

I didn't think Ronon was being mean in his comment about thinking she was weak at first. I thought he was trying to compliment her in the only way he knew how. I agree with sweetsamurai about it being a massive compliment coming from him. Ronon doesn't say things he doesn't mean.


Well, you saw a little bit of emotion from him when he was talking about his past relationship with Melena. (for the first time! Finally)

I find it fascinating that the 2 times he's talked about Melena (with Sheppard in Sunday and now with Keller in Quarantine) he doesn't call her by name. She was "someone he cared about".

Agreed.

DEX: When you first came here, I thought you were weak – that you
didn't belong.
KELLER (shaking her head and looking away): It's the story of my
life. (She pauses for a while, then continues.) Growing up, I
skipped through grades and graduated at fifteen. Got my Bachelor's
Degree before I was even old enough to vote. I missed out on a lot
of things – any kind of social event, you know, parties and dances.
(She smiles ruefully.) I don't ever remember a time in my life where
I belonged.
DEX: Yeah, well, blowing up that tank – you really showed yourself.
(She smiles at him.)
KELLER: But it didn't work.
DEX: That's not the point.
(They gaze at each other.)

---

i think the point of 'i THOUGHT you were weak is that he THOUGHT it....and doesn't now

he knows that she may be small in stature and look pretty and fragile, but she's not.

i'm not one to ship usually, infact usually they're cheesy or i hate 50% of the coupling and get up in arms about it.. this one is adorable tho.. and a perfect match on the surface - ronan gets hurt a lot, keller mends people - true <3 is all about servicing one another's needs, people ! ;p

I liked how through it we got a little more backstory about Keller. It explains her a lot. Kids who get pushed through the system like that can end up awkward and uncertain in anything other than school. She shouldn't tell Rodney she was skipped 3 grades or he'll freak!

As for Ronon, he was just being honest about how he used to feel as a segue into giving her a compliment and letting her know how he feels now. It's kind of like warming yourself up for the big event. Besides, she thought she was weak in the beginning too. She's gained lots of confidence in herself in the last few months.

I like the relationship. And I loved Ronon's "What?" at the end when Teyla and John were looking at him. All defensive-like... means he was feeling something. I think it'll grow slowly since they're both awkward about feelings.

I think they are cute together. Ronon could throw Keller over his shoulder and walk out with her - if she was into that kinda thing. :)

Damn, Ronon could throw me over his shoulder and walk off with me - as long as I get one of his smiles beforehand.

so, i had this odd thought when i was messing with a ronon/keller scene for a ficlet...what do you think the chances are that keller has never had a boyfriend before?

with her whole 'i was years ahead and graduated college before i could vote', she'd be a prime candidate for rarely dating and possibly not having intimate friends

methosivanhoe
January 25th, 2008, 06:37 PM
that could be a possibility...

she hasn't mentioned anything about an ex BF or husband before...

I would guess she's a late bloomer when it comes to dating. As pretty as she is I'm sure more than one man has asked her out in her adult years. However, I would guess her child-prodigy years left her isolated and any relationship she's had (even as an adult) has been superficial and awkward.

But she didn't look too shy (or unknowledgeable) when she leaned in to kiss Ronon.

Y'know, as much as i thought Ronon & Keller were cute together in this episode, I just saw last season's episode "Echoes," and there were some very touching Ronon/Teyla moments. I've always thought those two were exceptionally close, and some of that may be because they're both 'outsiders' within the Atlantis expedition, but I think it could easily morph someday into something more than friendship.

So, while I think Ronon & Keller might be an interesting and sweet relationship, I think in the long term I'd prefer to see him & Teyla end up together (or at least a hint at it) when the series finally ends, years (and years!) from now.
