"I don’t know if I could love girl more. I mean this young amazing woman is set to be a huge star. She’s humble, she’s grounded, she’s kind, and on top of all those wonderful sort of human traits, she also is extremely talented." - Maggie Q on Shailene Woodley.
#2 “I’m Dead Without Him”: Michael and Nikita faced near-death experiences the way most of us face traffic jams, but this one was way too close for comfort. There weren’t many words in this scene, but the way Nikita launched herself into Michael’s arms and clung to him so hard he could barely breathe, said everything. And the ease with which Maggie Q switched between Nikita’s emotions — her soul-crushing grief that the man she loved was dead, to her utter joy and relief when he emerged from the rubble — was incredible.
#3 “Things Will Be Different.”: Most shows would stretch out the “will-they-or-won’t-they” sexual tension between their leads for seasons, but the Nikita writers chose a different path. Just 17 episodes into the first season, Nikita and Michael reunited and re-committed to one another, resulting in one of the show’s sexiest and most romantic moments. Not only was this an important scene for Michael/Nikita fans, it was also a major turning point for the show.
