Im just throwing this out there, but i found it strange that she didnt confine with Scott about the coup beforehand, and she didnt stick with the military side which wouldve seemed reasonable in her case considering that she had a supposedly strong relationship with a soldier. i know she seemed a little naive about it but really, she might as well be made out of stone to be able to fully betray Scott in that manner. the only explanation i can think of at the moment is that their relationship mightve been purely sexual, nothing concrete. dont get me wrong, one of the best scenes in Divided was how Scott reacted to what Chloe did. and i think Scott deserved it a little maybe for doing the same to other women maybe. so Chloe taking the opposite side of Scott isi big Ouch!

Do couples always share the same political view? Can't a democrat marry a republican? Even though the coup situation is a bit more dire, the basic idea is the same.

She Distracted Eli, At just the right moment.

Then lied about it later on when he figured it out.

They're just friends so next level is Scott but she didn't want him to die and knew exactly where to run to .

To rush (or Rush) to stop the transfer of systems, to able the docking clamps to engage. Didn't appear to take her much time to get to the alt command place did it.

"Do couples always share the same political view?" Nope. Though, " Hello honey, by the way we're planning a coup tomorrow and you could starve or dehydrate or find yourself gasping for air, and dying along with your friends.Well anyway , have a nice day "

Is slightly different then voting a different party in a election. well atleast at the moment happily =)

No doubt about it: Chloe had been working with Rush/Camille for some time leading up to this. That goes way beyond 'differing political views.' While she may have thought it was similar to the Democrat/Republican split (And Rush seems to be trying to imply it is), this is more like a coup d'etat.

I don't think her relationship with Scott is purely sexual, at least not for Scott himself. The actor said in an interview that he was under the impression Scott has only been with three women in his life, and Chloe's the third.

Or she just didn't tell Scott because she knew precisely what he'd do with said information. It's not a shocker to see that he sided with Young. I wouldn't say their relationship is particularly strong, but it doesn't follow that it's purely sexual simply because of what Chloe did in "Divided".

I can't help but wonder if we would be talking 'betrayal' if Chloe had of told Scott about the coup and he reported it to Young. Not - that would be him doing his job - right?

Seriously, Chloe is allowed (and personal encouraged) to have independent thoughts. These thoughts and feelings do not have to correspond with Scott's. She does not have to believe that Young should be in charge and she can actively work towards that without Scott's say so. Without it being a betrayal.

This, completely this.

I'd also like to throw out a big "who cares if it's a sexual relationship?" In what possible way does that matter?

To quote DigiFluid above me, "This, completely this."

Can't green you unfortunately. But I will note that maybe she turned to Rush because she kinda felt a bond with him. Doesn't make her and Scott all about the sex (Would he have told her about his kid back home and would she have stuck with him if that was so? I kinda doubt that), it just makes out that she decided to side with a guy who saved her. A guy who told her about Young leaving him behind on the Justice Planet... and then she chose. Simple as that.

Kinda sorta maybe sorta.

Chloe’s behavior surprised me, I admit. She complained (a lot) about her uselessness, supposedly suffered from her unoccupied and purposeless life, then turned her back to (or at least, didn’t support) one man, in whose life she had meant something. I wonder what did Rush tell her? What made her feel so indispensable?

Yeah, that's a pretty solid interpretation for me.

Space/Divided spoilersIt almost feels like the actors described Scott/Chloe relationship better than what has been on screen. Or it's just me.

I'm interested to know what storyline will Chloe have
regarding the fact that she thinks only Rush can understand what she went through.

Scott seems to be more loyal to Young than Chloe, if she told him anything it would of been a bust.

I would let Chloe have a purely sexual relationship with me and I wouldn't be offended at all!! She could betray me every day of the week and I am sure I would get over it :D

Chloe's betrayal is proof of nothing other than she is exceptionally naive and impressionable for someone who was presumably exposed to politics at an early age by her powerful father the senator.

I don't know how the actress sees her character (didn't bother to check the linked interview) but I know how i see her: a pouty, immature brat that has trouble foreseeing the consequences of her own actions. The shame of it all is that there was potential for more in the first episode, but it seems like she's been getting less and less substantive as the series goes on.

Regarding the coup: She bought into it as a matter of right and wrong, but didn't for a minute consider that it wouldn't go exactly as planned with nobody hurt. She didn't (in her mind) betray Scott because she naively thought that the scientists would make their demands and the military would have no recourse but to meekly submit. No one would get hurt, and afterwards the military types would simply forgive, forget, and integrate. Scott would soon enough realize that it was for the better and no problems ...

I'd call her the dumbest woman on Earth ... but she ain't here.

Hmm, don't think so. First, she went through a traumatic experience of being abducted by aliens and had lord know what done to her (yes, later on down the road she'll be pregnant by alien means - just guessing). PTSD would not be out of the question, and might influence her decisions. She does have a 'survivor' relationship now with Rush (oddly enough, a man she wanted to kill), hence, that, and the trauma, might have made her go 'okay, I'm with it.' After all, there's Young, the leader, LYING to everyone about Rush's oh-so-unfortunate demise.

Otherwise, she isn't the most mature. As pointed out, she doens't always think about the consequences of her actions. If she thinks Scott is going to greet her back with welcoming arms after this little coup, she's got another thing coming.

well for me scott/chloe have always just been a sexual relationship i mean i see no real bond or connection and after recent events chloe has confirmed it for me because she helped cause a situation that put peoples lives at risk including her boyfriend for a man who she had blamed for the death of her father:rolleyes:.

"Chloe's betrayal could be proof of her relationship with Scott being purely sexual "
is it a betrayal?
did she swear an oath to agree with him on all points?
I do think that people in a sexual relationship are better served by communication but it doesn't mean they have to talk about everything, and it definitely doesn't mean they have to agree on everything.

Further, if it is solely a sexual relationship, what's wrong with that? They're both adults.
