My ramblings/questions after seeing S1 in a block - again. xposted to my LJ.
The ironic thing is - Nina barely had reason to kill Teri, apart from the personal one.
Her cover was already blown, Teri didn't know anything else that could endanger her future, apart from the link to Germany...Would that be so important once she was gone?Nina
- What can I say, I LUFF YOU!
Any specs on when/why she turned?
*I've seen a lot of fans indicate she became the mole when Jack crawled back to Teri - only problem is the key card in the beginning of the season. Obviously, it linked back to her for a reason, and the date the thing had been accessed was during the J/N Santa Barbara weekend. Also, I doubt they'd do that to her character.
is what interests me the most, though. Money, only? Patriotic situation a la Irina Derevko (alias)? Too bad her motives weren't exploited on the show. Although I haven't seen all of S2 yet.
*There's also the question of the Jack/Nina affair, and then the Tony/Nina. One could say she slept with Jack only for information - but then how do you explain Tony? She was his boss. I doubt he knew anything of importance to her. It was LURVE.
*Why exactly did she kill Jamey? Gaines himself obviously wasn't aware of her (Nina's) implication in the Drazen affair, since he ordered Jack to kill her, so what'd Jamey know? Er. Maybe leading them to Gaines?
Sherry - Gotta admit, I enjoyed Her Royal Evilness this season. She'll go to extraordinary lengths to get what she wants (ie. a firm grip on Palmer) while staying "good". Well. In a way.
What I find fascinating is her ability to save her ass in any situation. Especially when Palmer catches her red-handed a few times (after destroying the tape & setting him up with Patty ), she retorts calmly - often putting the blame/guilt trip on "Day-vid" Palmer. Teri
- As a Jack/Nina shipper, I didn't dislike her as much as I though I would. I loved her when they were captive, and felt SO bad when she "volunteered" to get raped by Eli. She did love Jack, although repeating it x4484518 times an ep hurt my J/N shippin' heart.
Though, the amnesia bit? Annoying. VERY. Not to mention the Nina!Bitching when she herself probably had an affair with Parslow. (That's unclear to me)
It strikes me as funny that she just wouldn't have died if she hadn't moved to go look for Nina. Snort!
Finally..little bit about Jack & Nina - post mole discovery.
I was discussing this with rezie
today: What could redeem Nina to Jack's eyes? Nothing. The next best thing, then: what would make him start to forgive her - to make this "relationship" more equal?
The justification of Teri's murder - by making her (teri) implicated in the Drazen affair. (Very unlikely, but HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE?)
