All the feels this post!

I briefly mentioned in part 2 that Guide set Sheppard up a little when he asked about Carter. Guide thought that Sheppard was Carter’s Consort and was simply playing Carter and Teyla against each other.

This is the part I was referencing.

Teyla and Sheppard are obviously a thing so it’s a little weird that the Wraith wouldn’t pick up on that when they’ve picked up on Carter and O’Neill.

Only thing I can think is that Teyla shields so well they’d only be able to get Sheppard’s side. Considering how many times he’s encountered Wraith Queen’s I can see him building a type of shield or tolerance to the mental aspect, but it’s also likely that he and Teyla practice together.

That’s not the feels part though (at least not the one I’m wanting to discuss a tiny bit).

After they leave Waterlight’s Hive, Guide, Sheppard and Teyla start a conversation that leads to some interesting places. Teyla sees that they have to work together, in truth, to defeat Death. Not these partial alliances that generally leave both sides unhappy and having lost something.

Guide isn’t so keen on trusting them considering how many times he’s been burned by their agreements before.

He’s also not happy about the fact that Teyla has put his men and himself in danger by playing her games.

The Wraith Cruiser she’s using?

One of Death’s from that big battle not too long ago.

And with her making waves concerning alliances with other Queen’s, Guide is definitely in trouble when Death finds out.

And we don’t doubt that she will.

For now though, we get to the feels.

After Teyla asks him to meet them at different coordinates, Guide makes an excuse to step away. Not far enough that he can’t hear them talking but enough that they don’t know he can still hear them.

He doesn’t trust them and wants to know what they’re planning…preferably before he becomes an unwilling guest of Atlantis again, and this is what he hears.

Sheppard telling Teyla he didn’t expect her to come rescue him and Teyla replying, “did you think that I would ever leave you?”.

The feels aren’t from them though, but from the fact that Queen Snow and Guide had a similar encounter long ago and he remembers it now.

I’ve talked about it quite a bit (and will no doubt continue cause why not) but I think it’s really important that we get to see some of what made Guide who he is.

The death of his True Queen is one of the defining moments we know about that made him who he is now and that’s the person that’s willing to do a heck of a lot that’s considered out of the norm for the Wraith.

We’re getting closer to the really good parts of the Legacy series, which is saying something because it’s all the really good parts!

For now, I shall let y’ll go.

Next week will be about what presents I got for Christmas because my Christmas was postponed due to reasons. Lots of books, I’m sure!

Until then, stay safe and I’ll see everyone later!
