#1 “I Have Evil Inside of Me, Michael”: This is, arguably, the best episode of the series, in large part thanks to Maggie Q’s mesmerizing performance. Nikita’s palpable anger that Michael would sacrifice himself just so they could be together faded into devastation as she confessed that he would not love her if he knew what she was capable of. The raw anguish in Q’s delivery made this scene almost painful to watch. And Shane West’s earnestness as Michael told Nikita that he loved even the darkest parts of her was equally devastating. Their performances elevated the material and helped to make this the quintessential Michael/Nikita scene.

#5 “Give Me the Damn Glock!”: In the midst of a rescue mission, Michael had to go back for Nikita’s engagement ring, yelling as much at her when Nikita questioned why he was running back into the fray. The look on Nikita’s face when she realized Michael had just spontaneously proposed was priceless. I debated whether or not to include the more traditional proposal scene at the end of this episode, but this one just felt more fitting for our spy couple.
