I was not born into a creative family. I wasn’t born into a family who had not been exposed to entertainment in any point in their lives. So, it wasn’t an option from me when I was young. I didn’t think being a creative person was something you could do and actually make a living. In my heart of hearts, I’ve always been a creative person. I was always pushing the creative envelope. I’m the only one of five kids who did that, so it took a minute for people to understand it.
My father was gunned down in front of me when I was thirteen years old. I was sold into slavery, but I lived. I came out a drug dealer, but I got cleaned. I’ve killed dangerous men, and I’ve watched people I love die in my arms. You want to know what I am? I’m a survivor.
#11 “You Have Me”: Michael was about to go on a suicide mission to take down the man who killed his family and Nikita begged him to reconsider. As Michael began to say goodbye, Nikita told him that he was wrong in thinking he had nothing to live for because he had her. Since the pilot, Nikita made it clear that she wanted Michael on her side, but this was the first time we saw the depth of Nikita’s feelings for Michael. And that made it all the more heartbreaking when Michael chose to carry out his mission anyway.
