Relationships[edit | edit source]
Stephen is Astrid's best friend, It was revealed in Limbo, that she is in love with him as he accidentally read her mind. She is extremely disappointed that Stephen says he doesn't love her the same way but continues to be there for him, even throughout the episodes, they seem to be slowly separating from each other. After a couple of episodes, they permanently reconcile and become best friends again. Astrid had moved on from him and began a relationship with John shortly before Jedikiah forcibly recruited him for his cause.
In Death's Door, there appears to be brief flirtation between John and Astrid as they exchange looks. In Sitting Ducks, John offers to protect Astrid because she knows about Stephen's powers, and John knows from personal experience what happens to humans who know about paranormals. He was right and protects Astrid when Ultra attempt to kill her, taking a bullet before teleporting them nearby. She removes the bullet and sings to him. In Enemy of My Enemy, Astrid is plagued by agoraphobia after her near-death experience and is afraid to go outside. After being kicked out of the Tomorrow People by Cara, John gives her comfort and helps her face her fears which causes her to kiss him on the cheek. In return, Astrid gives advice to John about facing his fears (which she didn't know about), which leads John to go back and re-join the Tomorrow People. In Kill Switch John, after having his powers taken away by Ultra, meets her to warn her about the impending doom for humans engineered by the Founder. Astrid points out that his powers were not what made him special and takes him to task for giving up so easily. After he saves her from an oncoming taxi, she kisses him. Later, he gives her his lucky jacket and says he'll come back for it. In Son of Man, John again seeks out Astrid's company under pretense of leaving town with her, but they decide to stay and help the Tomorrow People in their assault on Ultra headquarters. They kiss again, and are frozen in that position until the Machine is stopped. Two weeks later, they are seen together on the subway exploring topside New York City. At the end of the series finale, it has been hinted that Astrid, has begun a new romantic relation with John, after he broke up with Cara. However, they are separated when John is forcibly recruited by Jedikiah.
They were allies and they share a friendly acquaintanceship with each other, despite their affections (formerly on Astrid's part - currently) for Stephen.
