|Reviews for The Old Michael Westen|
| DKougar chapter 2 . 8/31/2015
Oddly, Michael Westen, spy extraordinaire, lethal sniper, CIA implacable assassin, has a naive Anne Frank-like belief that there is always HOPE! It is the source of his "unstoppability".
But he has never been so far down, so physically, emotionally & psychologically depleted as he is several months into his coerced participation in the DR mission. He is even questioning his ability to complete the mission if & when he closes with his target.
But his ever present hope sends him a touchstone, Fiona's eyes. And with his weary soldier's eyes on hers, his target in sight, Michael knows what he MUST do & has no doubt that he, as always, CAN do what he has to do.
Brilliant illumination of this seminal passage of Michael's story. Thanks

Haunting song for a very haunted time in Michael's life. He's had a Soldiers Eyes long before he arrived in Santa Domingo, but now he is seeing through them like never before. Terrific tale showing Michael's struggle to stay true to himself and still complement the mission. Can he kill a friend to save his friends? A question he will be faced with again and again as this progresses. Thanks for providing the emotional context and background for his encounter with Burke. Excellent as always!

I am breathless now as when I first read this. Brilliantly encapsulates the pain and despair Michael is feeling and yet he must go on to complete the mission. Beautifully written take on the 7.01 opener. I remember getting sucked into the illusion that Michael was boozed out and burned up as surely as his opponent in the bar fight did. I was all about the mission to save his family, no matter how much it hurt him, all along. Genius, my friend, simply genius.

This is very good, even if it is quite hearbreaking :). It's very well written and I think it captures perfectly Michael's thoughts!
And it's nice to read something from his point of view, I feel like most stories on the season 6 finale or this new episode are focusing only on Fiona's feelings after this debacle, and I personally empathise more with Michael as far as this whole situation goes, so as I said it's nice to get an insight on his feelings. :)
So thank you for this story.
