Vala's not sure what she thinks about Rodney McKay. Sam says he's okay, but weird, sometimes very weird. Also that it helps if you ignore about half of what comes out of his mouth. Vala assumes she doesn't mean the science parts of this, the bits that Vala doesn't understand.

Mitchell seems to hate him, though Vala's not entirely sure why this is. Because he nearly killed Teal'c? Because he sometimes checks out Sam (which, who with eyes wouldn't? Even in a uniform, she's pretty hot). Something else? There has to be something, because Mitchell's nice to everyone, as long as they're not Ori or trying to kill anyone on the team. She just doesn't know what.

Daniel seems to find him almost sort of amusing, though all he'll say when Vala asks him is, "He's changed," which is not helpful, since she's meeting him for the first time now, not before. Daniel, Vala's noticed, is often more obscure than can really be necessary.

Teal'c says, "I believe Atlantis has been good for him," and won't say anything else.

Clearly, Vala's going to have to make her own mind up, as usual. On Sheppard and Dr Weir as well – her team are even less helpful on them than they are on Dr McKay. Not that she sees much of any of them until the Ancients show up and throw them out of Atlantis, and even then, she doesn't see much of McKay. Not until, three weeks after they all came home, he shows up in one of the labs where Vala went looking for Sam.

"Can I help you?" he says, looking up from a laptop and glaring at her. Clearly, he doesn't remember her, and that simply won't do.

"I have something for you," she says, swinging herself up onto his lab bench and watching his eyes track her cleavage. She slides one finger under his chin, tilts his head up until he meets her eyes. "Up here, darling. They don't speak."

"What?" he says.

Vala smiles, and leans in to kiss him, lightning fast, with just a little tongue. He's still blinking when she hops off the desk again and saunters out, grinning. She'd bet he won't forget her now.
