#9 “You’re the Strongest Person I’ve Ever Met”: Michael was distraught when he learned the truth about Percy’s role in the deaths of his wife and daughter. He told Nikita about the future he planned for his family and how he intended to kill Percy for taking that away from him. Nikita promised Michael his revenge, as soon as they found the rest of Percy’s black boxes. Shane West’s devastating performance, combined with Nikita’s instant forgiveness of Michael’s planned double-cross, made this one of the most memorable Michael/Nikita scenes.
