I mostly think Eli/Chloe would just be the cutest thing since Oz/Willow.
Also, there is precedent: on Stargate, the geek usually gets the girl.
Daniel got Sha're in the original movie, and Vala at the end of SG-1.
McKay got Keller on SGA (though I thought she had better chemistry with Ronon).
The pattern is clear. If you are a main character, male, and a geek, you WILL get the girl.
Yeah I think it is set up that Eli will get the girl....cuz they put Scott/Chloe together too soon and it just seems almost forced. AND I love it that truly with Scott/Chloe it is more of a physical relationship but with Eli/Chloe it is one of intimate comraderie and emotional connectedness. I just think she gets so much more from Eli emotionally and feels so much more comforted by him than she could ever get from Scott. SO while she may not be physically attracted to Eli...and more so attracted to Scott in that way I think that Eli wins out hands down cuz he can do more to support her emotionally and i think in time that will lead her to be attracted to him more physically. At least that is my hope
The way I see it, her relationship with Scott is one of comfort-seeking. It's mutual - they can take comfort in each other. But they don't love each other. They may or may not realize it. I thought that they could be set up for a fairly amicable breakup - though Scott dumping Chloe because she sided with Rush could do the same.
The problem is that their relationship hasn't gotten much attention. We don't really know how they feel about each other.
Agreed, though from what I have read it looks like we will have to just accept Chloe/Scott at least into season two. Though I am hoping that my prediction that they will be over by the end of season two comes true.
How ever it happens, it is inevitable in my mind, I think it should be at least a season after it ends before Chloe gets with Eli.
I would rather Chloe end up with Eli than Scott.

I think Chloe only goes to Eli when Scotts not around. Meaning that if Scotts habit of sleeping around get him in trouble with the female population of destiny the Eli's got a shot at the nerd dream ( the cheerleader / hottie )
I am not 100% sure of what you all are talking about when it comes to ships etc but I think I have an idea. Me myself personally, I think Scott will move to Tamara because he will be able to understand her woes and he feels guilty about not being there for his own son. Chloe will then cry on Eli's shoulder and will brew their relationship, but unfortunately in the end he will not get the girl. He will move on to someone else and then Chloe will regret not taking him when he was available.
I kinda like the ship. Geek guy getting the girl is always fun (Thanks Seth Rogen!), but I anticipate huge tragedy if they ever get together. Joss Whedon Wesley/Fred levels of horrifying tragedy and shipper tears. She'll stick with Scott for a while longer, I'm sure of that. If she stays with Scott, or they drift and she turns to Eli (If he doesn't tire of her "friend-zone" thing with her), then maybe something can happen. Lots of differing factors that may keep them friendly for ever and ever (Mayhaps Eli'll get a love interest of his own, hence jealous Chloe?) and ever and ever...
Though, their friendship is pretty cool as is. Moments in Human especially, where we learn that she actually values her friendship with Eli enough to suck it up and try to gain his trust again after the Divided stuff. Good on her, really. And Scott strikes me as oblivious enough to Eli's liking of Chloe (Remember Water, with Eli's little comment about Scott dying horribly? ) that the three of them trapped somewhere might make for some interesting dynamic. I just hope it's a subtle one, not a very jarringly forced one.

I think Scott knows that Eli is at least friends with Chloe, but he may not realize that Eli's actually in love with Chloe.
I do hope that they don't go for Joss Whedon-style tragedy. I mean, I'm a Joss Whedon fanboy through and through, but having your heart ripped out is not pleasant.
