So - to take Michael again - is it enough that it seems pretty clear, in canon, that he didn't *like* betraying his lovers sexually, even the ones he didn't love? Or is there more?

I think it's clear in the tag of Psychic Pilgrim that Michael is "conflicted;" he admits as much. My take here is that Nikita was ready to continue their sexual relationship, but Michael, unless he were ordered to (Andrea) , or if it were to save Nikita's life (Lisa Fanning), didn't *want* to be unfaithful to Elena.

I don't think he loved Elena in the same way a husband loves a wife, but he still cared for her. His way of dealing with Elena while married to Simone was to not talk about it. Total promblem avoidance. Did he feel that he was being unfaithful to Simone with Elena? Or was she just a job? He was conflicted at the thought of being unfaithful to Elena with Nikita, even though Elena was "only" a mission wife, and he clearly *wanted* Nikita.

I think resuming his relationship with Nikita after the Armel mission would have been adultrous in his mind, and that's why he walked away. I don't think her regarded his seductions of Andrea or Lisa as adultry; just hazards of the job.

So the answer to the question, 'is it enough that he didn't *like* betraying his lovers sexually,' "lovers" referring to Simone and later Elena, I think yeah. JMHO.
