Can we just take a minute to appreciate that first Mikita moment!? I’m just going to dissect every second of it. It was perfect and tragic and here’s why:
-Michael’s outreached hand, offering assistance as if to say “I’m still here”, but to what extent remaining unknown.
-Nikita’s first almost innocent and loving look at Michael, as Michael gently holds Nikita’s waist and lifts her down, all delivered in such a way that I held my breath through every moment.
-Micheal brushing Nikita’s hair aside to take out her ear piece. So beautiful.
-Michael’s emotionless face as he tells Nikita what to do. He barely looks at her.He’s cold and icy in his speech, devoid of that adoring, affectionate look we are so used to. The love is still there though.
-The “thank you” at the end delivered by Maggie. I didn’t realise it was possible to say thank you and for my heart to break completely.
-Michael standing there alone, as Nikita goes off, just like the end of season 3.
It was such a delicate moment mixed with so many unspoken feelings, juxtaposed against an action packed episode. This is why I love Nikita.
