Well, that happened...part two...

SPOILERS FOR SGU!

---

So, the medic. I forgot about her. She, quite frankly, rocked.

Of all the people on this show, only she just did her fucking job and shut the hell up.

I'm also slightly interested to see what her angle is - why she was leaving, etc.

That is all.

Ditto... everyone else I'm either "meh" about (Young), disliked-but-in-a-good-way (Rush), or couldn't stand (everyone else).

Maybe they'll grow on me, but I hope they don't make TJ just as f-ed up as the rest of them. She has potential.

Well, like we talked about, I don't really get why she stayed with Young after admitting she couldn't help him anymore when there were (obviously? or am I mistaken?) tons of other injured parties about. Unless
1) more time had passed than it seemed and she already patched everyone else up,
2) there were several medics or people with pretty good first aid training about who took care of it (which I doubt because it limits their ability to lean on her-as-bottleneck-to-medical-help plotline later),
3) she's got a deeper, more 'personal' relationship with Young,
4) there really weren't as many/ as badly injured as they suggested in the beginning and it was just Young, the Congressman, and maybe a couple corpses and everyone else just got a scrape or 2?
or 5) she freaked out and decided to use "the commander's seemingly moribund" as an excuse to avoid other duties, which seems silly because she didn't seem like a weak or inexperienced character.

On first watch and not really sure of total time elapsed, I would have said stay with him, and even sure, hand-hold through the seizure, why not, but then stick a civvie on him to watch for changes while you patch up others more in need of intermediate-level patching up. Eh. I may just need a rewatch, but that struck me as odd. Granted, Young got the brunt of it since he came through with the force of the explosion behind him, but there were plenty seemed nicked in the beginning....

I didn't take it as her sitting with Young the whole time. I think she came and went. And since we don't know what her "deal" is (why she was leaving, Young knowing about her issue-whatever it is, etc), I think it is feasible that she might have a bit more than professional interest here.

Young does call her by her first name when the doctor gets killed (really?) and seems a bit more than usual concerned about her, but since there's the whole gay thing going on in this series, she might also be a victim of "don't ask, don't tell" in that maybe she told him and he didn't care and thus the bond there.

(SPOILER! There are two gay characters in SGU, but I'm not saying which two because I've avoided finding that out. It's a secret!)
