Hide in his quarters. In the absence of Sheppard, Weir and McKay, he's become the go-to guy for answers. Which he's used to, except that he doesn't have any answers right now, and there are only so many ways to say 'I don't know.' Particularly when the question is 'will they come back?'


Cancel his plans for the weekend. As tempting as it is to hop on a plane to LA and try to forget what's happening, he can't quite bring himself to be that far away, just in case. And he knows he won't be able to cover up how worried he is, which it's not fair to inflict on Colby, not when Colby's so good about not asking any questions Evan can't answer.


Persuade Colonel Mitchell not to go out and get drunk. Because Evan's not clueless enough to think that Mitchell's offer to take his mind off what's happening is all about Evan, not after seeing him and Sheppard together. He doesn't want Sheppard to come back and find out that someone started wondering why Mitchell was hung-over right in the middle of that particular crisis, put two and two together and got him discharged from the Air Force. Not least because he feels sort of responsible for Mitchell in Sheppard's absence, and very responsible for Sheppard, all the time.


Hone his ability to avoid General Landry. And sure, it makes him a coward, but he doesn't care; Landry looks at him like he thinks Evan might be sending helpful tips to Sheppard by psychic message or something, and Evan's starting to worry that he won't be able to resist the urge to make a smart remark. If that's not a sign that he's been spending way too much time with Sheppard, he doesn't know what is.


Start, in his head where no-one can catch him, making plans for re-deploying the mission back to Atlantis. Because he's worked with Sheppard for nearly two years, and that's more than enough to develop some cautious optimism.
