'Wrath' Is Maggie Q's 'Best Performance of the Season
Sunday, April 22, 2012
As the CW drama is reaching to its final episode of season two, the heroine, Nikita, off the show is scheduled to be forced to deal with issues left off to the side in ‘Wrath’. The story of “Wrath” is written by Albert Kim and it is directed by Jeffery Hunt. In this story, Nikita will be captured and left to face one of her own side which she had buried a long time ago.
While crafting this episode, Albert Kim realized that it can be reset.
During an interview, he said, “Going into this episode was a little bit of a reset for our characters, especially for Nikita and for Michael, so it felt like it was time to come back to the emotional and character issues that they’ve sort of been avoiding for much of the season, which had to do with what the status of their relationship was.”
It was necessary to unravel the story in a definite manner rather than forcing it without head and tail. “Plot-wise, an old foe of Nikita’s returns and is seeking his revenge, captures and proceeds to torture her. Within that crucible, Nikita confronts a lot of her emotional issues, stuff that she may not have been able to say or get to without the threat of physical and emotional distress,” Kim said.
“It was a combination of things that we needed to get to and we needed to address these character issues that have been left hanging,” he added.
“Nikita ends up in a dark place, where she has to confront the questions of her identity as well as the damage in her past,” explained Kim, who added that it is “unsettling as a writer when you try to write those scenes.”
Kim admitted that “Wrath” “was one of the toughest scripts I’ve ever had to write. I had to get into the heads of these characters who were going through some very raw places.”
