I think there were a few more examples of moments that could be read as 'Abby/Stephen' if wanted, like the way they stared at each other then hastily looked away with interesting expressions when searching for the flying beastie at the golf course in 1.05, then Abby leaping into Stephen's arms, legs around his waist, at the end of 1.05 when the beastie was returned home safely (while Connor had to try and fail at engaging Ryan in a high five *G*). She also hugged Stephen in 1.04 (I think - or clung to his arm...?) at the stadium and hugged him in 1.06 when he'd shot the FP (but in those times it could be more due to the close call than romantic feelings).

Either way, the conversation in 1.03 when unloading equipment was very interesting. I liked how Stephen pursued the conversation despite how awkward the subject/situation was and apologised. Interesting parallels to 2.05 when he and Connor are also having a discussion about romance when unloading equipment ;) But I digress!

From a photo of Stephen leaning over Abby while she's wrapped in the blanket after the attack in the lake in 1.03, it looks like there might have been a deleted scene where he was checking how she was, and from the smile on her face, she was pleased with the attention/concern and it looked like she still had feelings for him. But that might not have been part of the ep, just a behind the scene shot that I've misconstrued.

Great metas and observations about Abby and her character, thanks!

Oooh, long comment! :-)

I suppose it is possible to see more Abby/Stepen moments if you want to look for them, but I think they just quietly let it drop, really. I'd read the times when she hugged him in 1.4 and 1.6 as spur of the moment adrenaline/near death experience reactions rather than particularly romantic interest, although it's interesting that she latches onto Stephen on both occasions rather than anyone else.

Hmm, yes, I think I know of that photo. I was talking with Reggie further up this post and it seems that series 1 was filmed in two blocks of three episodes, so possibly that was a scene which was originally filmed before they decided not to pursue the A/S realtionship and had a hasty re-write. Or possibly just cut due to time contraints.
