It was before the President’s visit, but after the Iratus bug, that I realized what existed between you both. When Carson said I’m sorry, John, I’m so, so sorry, but there’s nothing I can do, the Colonel did not look at Carson or Elizabeth, Teyla or Ronan, Caldwell or me. He looked at you.

Psychic bond between John and Rodney.
John survives, but he doesn't revert back to human. Stuck with a body he can't accept as his own, John withdraws - and Rodney lets him, certain that all John needs is time. But what if he's wrong?
John tried not to grimace. Really, he wasn't mad at Rod. But ever since he "magically" (Rod liked to call it magic, because he knew how much it irked John) appeared back in Atlantis, everything Rod did annoyed John. Morning runs? Annoying. Trips to the mainland for council meetings? Always inconvenient. The constant air of superiority because he'd been to a parallel universe and returned alive? John was about ready to pull out his hair, and that was saying something.
For John, watching Ford recover was worse than watching him kill himself with that damn enzyme. Thank god he had someone to go home to at night.
