Um, Nikita? That was a major fail
I was under the crazy impression that good parents put their kids first. Once the kids are born and have developed the appropriate attachment, they come first. So why did we have to see Michael choose his hellishly unpredictable life with Nikita over moving away with his little son Max? I mean, Max doesn't know Michael's his father, but obviously he's attached, and Michael clearly wants to be with his kid so...WTF???
Are the writers this desperate to keep these two together?
For real, I was on the edge of my bed thinking this was it. I was hoping the writers had finally come to their senses and were going to break apart this lackluster, passionless duo and let either the cute ex-CIA nerd or the rugged, tortured ex-Guardian step in to show how loving a warrior woman is really done.
Instead we see a man choose his girlfriend over his kid. WTF kind of message is that? The reasoning wasn't even sound. Michael hates his life. He wants to settle down. He wants to raise his kid. He has all the goals and intentions of a decent father figure and yet he passes the opportunity up so he can dodge bullets with his woman? Nope. *shakes head* Not buying it.
