So, tell us, how exactly would Rodney McKay handle having another consciousness in his brain, including seizures?Originally Posted by SciFiGeek
I can answer that question thusly, just off the top of my head:
(2) Dealing with it bossily and badly
(3) Applying his brilliant mind to the problem
(4) Coming through, in the end, with kindness and compassion
We saw all this in Duet. Thus, Duet was absolutely McKay, absolutely in character.
What we saw in Runner was NOT in character. McKay this week was not a continuation of the goofy moments of Intruder and the bad goofy moments of Runner.
Big, huge, fracking difference there. They might superficially look somewhat the same, but the writer of Duet understands McKay and wrote him very well here.
