To this day, this scene destroys me. It’s not long. There’s no dialogue. And it’s not an actual betrayal - it’s all an act. But Nikita doesn’t know that. And the look she gives Michael when she thinks that he isn’t helping her to escape, that he is handing her over to Section, to the White Room for cancellation… It’s too much. It breaks my heart every single time. And it truly shows how utterly talented these two are.
Do you know, for three years.. all I did was dream about getting out of the Section? When I did.. it wasn’t what I’d expected. This isn’t freedom.
