    Has anyone noticed how Sydney seems slightly distant from Vaughn lately? She accuses him of being condescending, she doesn't want to talk to him when she's suffering over Emily ... and I have a sense that she's holding back slightly. (It was his idea to reheat their dinner.) Even the exchange several episodes ago about calling him by his last name implies that distance. I know that JJ Abrams likes triangles (Felicity was organized around them) which I thought he was setting up with Lennox in Double Agent. Now it's true that there is literally no man in this series who doesn't love Sydney (and most are in love with her), but what about Sydney's capacity to love? I thought Danny was deliberately written as slightly whiney and narcissistic -- Will's empathy for her struggle to live a double life when he found out her secret was a direct contrast with Danny's self-indulgent voice mail. But the question is: why choose Danny? Does she prefer emotionally unavailable men like, say, her father? Is Vaughn too present, too emotional for her to feel comfortable?

    no I think syd loves vaughn alot and she is just trying to handle everything with her mom and now emily death again that was hard for her. I think whats going to happen next is syd going to get really upset and go to vaughn that what she did when jack told her about the christmas project. She loves him and he loves her its to strong the only thing i would think that would get in the way would be something with there families. Soon there will be an episode with vaughn family so maybe we will learn more about their relationship there.

    I think it must be difficult for syd 2 show her true feelings for Vaughn because all the people around her have either let her down (her mum and dad, Sloane, SD-6 not actually working for CIA) or been killed (Danny) Even her best mate isn't trustworthy now (even if syd doesnt truly know about Evil Francie yet)
    I think that she does truly love Vaughn, but until she can fully trust others in her life, she may be slightly distant with him, to prevent herself from being hurt again.

    Of course she does. I dont blame her for saying she didnt want to talk after Emily's death. She just wasnt ready yet.

    Of course she loves him. She said so herself a couple of eps ago. She told him not to condescend her, but who hasn't said that to people they love? She just misread what he said is all.

    People who love each other fight...if they didn't it would be kind of surreal and creepy (hey doesn't that describe evil Francie?). Nyway their romantic relationship is new and Syd's going through a rough time. Once they've been together longer she'll feel comfortable opening up to him more readily.

    No I don't think they're distant. Sydney just found out her mother is a traitor, and Emily, wow tried to help, died. That's a lot to handle, and it's perfectly understandable to not want to talk. Sometimes, you just don't feel like talking. She will talk to Vaughn about it soon I'm sure. And the last name thing, well, she's always, I mean always called him that. I think that she's just gotten too use to it and likes the sound of it(if you know what I mean). I'm sure that she'll start calling him Michael soon enough. So really, I don't think that they are distant at all.

    I KNOW!!! Neither of them has said that yet!! I really really really want one of them to say it!! Sydney did say "Would you betray someone you love?" But that wasn't to Vaughn (It was about Vaughn) it was to Yaiger er whatever. And it's not the same as saying I love you. I want them to say it!!!!!!
