#No but this moment literally killed me. For an entire year, Mike had no idea where Eleven was, or if she was even alive. And even though he never gave up hope, we saw how much her loss affected him: calling her every day, not being able to take down her fort, thinking he was crazy because he kept seeing her, closing himself off to new people. But then finally, finally, after a year he is reunited with her. Then moments later she has to leave him again, to save them all, which is how he lost her the first time. And you can see it on his face, how it is absolutely killing him to let her go. And even worse, you can see the fear, how terrified he is that this time, this will be the last time he sees her.
“I can’t lose you again.”
Mike Wheeler isn’t exaggerating. Heknows that he wouldn’t be able to handle losing her a second time
Nina glanced from Inej to Kaz and saw they both wore the same expression. Nina knew that look. It came after the shipwreck, when the tide moved against you and the sky had gone dark. It was the first sight of land, the hope of shelter and even salvation that might await you on a distant shore.
