So, CW has new Nikita.

Maggie Q as Nikita is interesting but Shane West as Michael? Oy.

Chapter Twenty Seven


“Why did you come with me then?” Nikita asked. “Why make our recapture so easy? You had resources.”

“I was wary of compromising your assignment.”

“You knew I was on a mission?”

“Yes,” Michael confirmed. “You wouldn’t align yourself with Red Cell otherwise. I assumed our liberation from Section was your end game as a final test of the current leadership.”

“You were right.” Nikita commended then sighed, adding, “I wasn’t at all sure Center would intervene on my behalf. I meant what I said after our capture.”

“I know,” Michael whispered. It was the reason he was so shaken when Operations came in to induce rather than cancel him. He had thought at the time that Nikita had been double crossed and hung out to dry. He couldn’t have lived with her death. “So did I.”

“I know,” Nikita affirmed their mutual comprehension.

“Were Operations’ and Madeline’s fates sealed by then as well?”

“More or less. I *had* hoped more of my recommendations would be accepted, including Madeline’s transfer. But, of course, the only recommendations of mine which were accepted were those that Center agreed with in the first place,” Nikita replied. “Yet another reason I stayed behind.”

“To find the truth behind it all,” Michael surmised.

“Yes,” Nikita stated sadly. “And I was wrong,” she admitted, referring to her once unyielding desire to look under every rock, consequences be damned. “There are things worse than not knowing.”

Michael was glad she’d learned the lesson, but regretted that the cost had been so high to her. “I’m sorry the truth didn’t set you free.”

“So am I.” Nikita smiled sadly at his echoing of a phrase she’d often repeated but only recently realized as untrue, at least in their subterranean world. “But there’s no one I would rather be with, trapped or not.”

A distant, somewhat troubled look crossed Michael’s countenance at her statement, so fleetingly that Nikita missed it, before he uttered the words she was hoping to hear. “Neither would I.”

But someone else, ensconced comfortably in Center with the benefit of rewind, slow motion and pause saw what Nikita failed to notice and planned accordingly.
