EXPENDABLE

He knew she would never love him, had known from the start, but Marcus could not stop himself from loving her. She was brave and strong. Braver and stronger than he would ever be. Like his brother.

That was why he did it, he told himself. The galaxy needed Ivanova much more than it needed him. He was a bitter soul who had lost everything; he was expendable. His brother had not been, but he’d not been able to save him.

Susan he could save.

Soon he could finally rest and find out if the end really was the end…

Oh, Marcus! I loved him so.

I think this is my third time watching the series through, and each time... my brain seems to block out his ending.

I loved your tie in with the death of his brother. I don't think we were given very many specifics, so this totally works for me.

Oh, Marcus. The first time I watched these eps, I sobbed right along with Susan - for him, and for her.

This is really well done. It's easy to forget how sad Marcus was, behind all the firecracker.
