The writers brought out the worst in Odo when it came to the unrequited love with Kira. I never bought that part of the character.
Really? I always liked the angsty side of Odo. A man who's been lonely his whole life, finally working up the nerve to feel something for someone else, only to be too shy and see the opportunity pass him by.

That is was Quark of all people who saw that and helped him through it was even more gold.

Re: Characters That Bought Out the Worst in Each Other

Yeah, I would agree with that. I definitely bought that Odo had a lot of feelings for Kira. But, I don't buy that a shapeshifter's idea of how to act on those feelings overlaps with a solid's idea of how to act on those feelings in any way. Odo/Kira's friendship should have never been viewed in terms of a 'Guy gets the girl' story. The men Kira was having physical relationships with shouldn't have made Odo jealous at all, if anything Kira's close friendship with Odo should have made the men jealous.

Their love should have been more along the lines of Picard/Guinan. Transcendent, asexual love.

Me too. I think a lot of the stuff with Odo's inner turmoil was pretty well-done, actually. Some of the interpersonal character drama in the show was kind of annoying, but I really felt for Odo (even if I'm not a huge fan of Kira, myself).

No mention of Rom and Leeta yet?

I wouldn't really agree with that one. The only serious issues I remember Rom and Leeta having always seemed to be instigated by other people's interference (usually Quark), not by their own interactions with each other.
