#1 “I Have Evil Inside of Me, Michael”: This is, arguably, the best episode of the series, in large part thanks to Maggie Q’s mesmerizing performance. Nikita’s palpable anger that Michael would sacrifice himself just so they could be together faded into devastation as she confessed that he would not love her if he knew what she was capable of. The raw anguish in Q’s delivery made this scene almost painful to watch. And Shane West’s earnestness as Michael told Nikita that he loved even the darkest parts of her was equally devastating. Their performances elevated the material and helped to make this the quintessential Michael/Nikita scene.
We all wear masks. Everyone, everyday and sometimes we wear them so much we forget who we really are; And sometimes if we are lucky someone comes along and shows us who we really wanna be, who we should be.
Thinking back to these past ten years, I realize I’m not someone who works towards a goal or has a fixed direction. The reason I am where I am today is my passion for acting and because I don’t tolerate failure on my part.
