What a delicious combo of hair porn and effortlessly gouging my heart out.
Look at those faces. Those bruised, hesitant, mesmerized faces. Myka, especially. She’s finally seeing this woman, really seeing her (and she really is, despite HG’s artiface, because in using the truth of her pain over Christina to manipulate Myka, she’s still allowing her to see the reality of it). At this point, Myka has stopped seeing the legend “HG Wells” or the “Rogue Agent” or whatever other role or label was there before and is seeing Helena.
And that last gif. Myka’s just…captured. Game over. Well played, HG. Except…you got ensnared too, didn’t you?
Fuck you and your perfect comments.
I will never get over this episode. Because its THERE. Right from the beginning. Even when Myka throws Helena up against a wall, she’s not scared of Helena, per se. My god, the woman probably weighs 100lbs soaking wet. No, Myka is afraid of her own reaction to Helena. And so she lashes out. She says she doesn’t trust her of course, and at this point she really doesn’t, but its more than that. Myka doesn’t trust herself around Helena.
Its part of why I just can’t get over this fucking relationship. Myka didn’t just leave the Warehouse because Helena was “evil.” Myka left because she couldn’t trust her own judgement anymore. And then, in Stand, when she says “I believed in you and I was right” it all comes back to this. This moment right here when Myka’s heart breaks through the cage of fear and doubt its been in ever since Sam died, and basically screams at her to trust HG. And she does. Maybe not completely. Not totally - not yet anyway - but just like Ryhfeddu points out - Myka just lost an internal battle in that last gif.
And in the end, she was right. For all her logic and observation and following the rules, it was Myka’s heart that was right.
