It's even more -worthy considering that's exactly what happens.

It is kind of amusing, though, seeing how wise Ralph is about relationships.
Oh, wow! I had totally forgotten about that and you are so right! It’s such a shame what they ended up doing to Walter & Paige.

It was so wonderful seeing Ralph finally getting what he so wanted. I can't imagine what his reaction was to the events of the finale.

I would like to believe - as I did wind up writing in the fics - that this time he would side with Walter. (Unlike the end of S3 when he was upset with Walter, although in that case I think he was right to be.)

I agree. In S3, I think part of it was just being protective of his mother. As you say, he was right, but I don't think it was 100% a reasoned response.

In S4, I think Ralph was mature enough to judge the situation on its merits, with minimal influence based on sentimentality. I can easily see Ralph having a bit of an argument with Paige over this, trying to convince her that she's not being fair in her condemnation of Walter.

I did have a scene where Ralph pointed out to Paige that her disparaging comments about Walter (in the finale) makes him feel like if she was angry enough, she'd say similar to him, since he is so much like Walter. And I wrote it that way because I could absolutely see him feeling that way. I saw someone say, both during the Tim arc and after the series finale aired, that "sometimes it's like she forgets her son is one of them," and as he gets older I could absolutely see the attitude she takes with them when she's mad affecting her relationship with him.

I remember when she was practically colluding with Tim to ridicule the geniuses and it was so hard to see that. I kept wondering how she would react if Tim or anyone said the same sorts of things about Ralph. But she didn't seem to realize that.

We need to come up with a title for a new thread. Any ideas?

If you're suggesting that should be our new thread title, I can go along with it.

Because "take only pictures, leave only footprints, kill only Tim."

Any thoughts on whether the Walter/Ralph dynamic might change if Walter and Paige get married and Walter becomes Ralph's official stepfather? We can carry this over to the next thread.
