Pete felt forced, it was an attempt to make it look like Sam had a love life, which was incredibly lacking in the show.
I am for the Martouf relationship, even though really the feelings come from Jolinar, I still felt like Sam herself was developing a love for him seperate of that. They certainly could have molded it that way. I'm let down that Sam never really got a solid relationship on the show, and I thought Martouf would have been perfect. I really liked his character. He seemed like a rational Tokra unlike others.
