Nikita 3x05 Promo 'The Sword's Edge'


Just leave me here to drown in my Sean/Alex feels. 

Oh yeah...Amanda and Owen were back too.

That's it. That's all I took away from this episode.

YASSSSSS. I was seriously fucking flailing at that whole scene. It was cheesy but LOOK AT ALL THE FUCKS I GIVE. ZERO. ZERO FUCKS GIVEN.

*basks in that scene's holy light*
stoicana 10th-Nov-2012 04:53 pm (UTC)
I gave absolutely zero fucks as well! We make good life choices, tbh.

It pained me that this scene felt like a goodbye, but then I remembered "the closet" and Casey's interview and now all I can think of is the fact that there's got to be some moment where they reconcile and I'm FLAILING AGAIN.

Like, can it they have a tension-filled episode where they're being professional working together but she wants to yell at him for being a prick and he's only sticking around because it's his job to protect the Russian heiress, and then she gets him alone and is super pissed at him and being all awesome by telling him that he can't understand everything Nikita means to her and what taking down Division means to her...and then they just jump each other bones?

I mean, that's all I really want. That's not too much to ask, right?

It was hard to watch, and when I went to TWoP someone who's spoiler free was wondering if Dillon was leaving and I was so fucking thankful that we know he isn't and that episode 11 is going to be awesome for him. Yay for closet making out spoilers. :D

You scenario is definitely not too much to ask. If Mikita fans are getting a shower scene, can't we at least get some acknowledgement of feelings? PLEASE?

I so need a Sean/Alex icon.

And now I can't stop thinking about all the scenes we haven't seen between the two of them. Obviously, they're involved in a relationship enough that Sean is joining her in a romantic dinner with Michael and Nikita, but she also seems oblivious to the depth of his feelings for her. So what kind of relationship have they had all for all these months?


I can totally believe that they haven't had sex (or maybe they have and I'm just too cautious) seeing as she was a sex slave at one point and Sean's probably so hyperaware of that he wouldn't push anything. But she was probably so freaked out by the whole thing that she didn't push anything either....so did they just exist in a constant state of....well, we've kissed and there FEELINGS but now what?


amber_protocol 10th-Nov-2012 09:47 pm (UTC)
Their lack of any kind of screentime or build up is pissing me off tbh. I don't need it to become the Alex and Sean Make Googly Eyes At Each Other hour or anything, but good lord we've had absolutely nothing this season for them and what we have had is all over the place.

I'm kinda pissed about that ugly dude at the end of S1 being Alex's first sexual relationship with what she went through (only in a character development kind of way, not in a "OMG SEAN SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIRST" way because that would be icky and I'm nhf that kind of possession of women's bodies), but the way they did it was like she'd never been a sex slave or had any issues, and that kind of thing would affect her as much as her addiction, which is being addressed at the moment.

So if they're doing that now then that's good, but I would've appreciated some signs of it with that other guy. Plus, you know, some actual screentime for Sean/Alex's relationship, because who the fuck knows what's going on with them?

All I know is that I ship them hardcore and they're perfect for each other so can we please get some actual scenes between them and NOT KILL SEAN, KTHNX. I figure if I say it enough it'll happen, so I'm going to keep on repeating it.

Oh and sorry, but is it petty of me to be loling at the Alex/Owen shippers on tumblr? They had, like, a minute of screentime and it was completely unremarkable and they're going on about their ~amazing chemistry~. I mean, that sort of thing is in the eye of the beholder, but yeah, no.
go3x 10th-Nov-2012 01:35 pm (UTC)
AHAHAHA this. Also, Alex/Owen? The only girl Owen had a spark on last night's episode was Nikita. Actually, I didn't expect such fireworks between the two even though they actually didn't say anything romantic. I just like their chemistry together I guess.

Seriously, I get shipping non canon things. I've done it before. I don't particularly understand where Owen/Alex came from, but I'm a ship and let ship person.

But the attitude displayed by many of the Owen/Alex shippers is just...baffling. The insistence that Olex is just so hot and awesome and perfect and totally going to happen obvs for reals, all on the basis of, prior to last night, nothing, and now, a single 20 second scene, is just weird. And a lot of them, not all but a lot that I've come across, have this annoying superiority to them, like they think they're the only ones who can see what Craig's long term vision clearly is. I just want to smack them.

Yeah I do get shipping non-canon couples as well, but my confusion is that they're acting like they're perfect for each other based on zero interaction and that they have a couple of things in common. At least Alex has, you know, met Sean and actually likes him.

And a lot of them, not all but a lot that I've come across, have this annoying superiority to them, like they think they're the only ones who can see what Craig's long term vision clearly is.

IKR? I find their delusion more hilarious than anything because I'm not even remotely threatened by Owen/Alex in the slightest, but it is baffling that they have such a vocal fanbase based on... nothing. *scratches head*

P.S. I adore your icon. Love badass Nikita shooting the shit out of people.

I started laughing the second Alex introduced herself to Owen. Because I had assumed that in order for so many Alex/Owen shippers to exist, they must have briefly interacted at least once on the show before; I just couldn't remember it. Seriously, how the fuck do you become so devoted to a ship between characters that haven't even met?

Spamming but idgaf: Forehead touching is my kryptonite, so please do me a favour and go on Oprah and tell the world I loved kittens, since I have died unexpectedly.
stoicana 10th-Nov-2012 04:55 pm (UTC)
Everything about that scene is my kryptonite, tbh. From the broken way she said, "what" to the way he kissed her to his hands on her face to the lingering forehead touch.

Aw man, I used to ship them pretty hard. But then Sean came along and I think they're much better suited. Thom was definitely a cutie though.
