Just watched Burn Notice and I like the show well enough but it’s not something I’m “into” if that makes sense. No fan feels really. But oh man the end of this season 4 finale had a real “your OTP could never” moment.
Picture the scene. Michael has gone to draw the enemy fire and is going to wait until they get close and then detonate what amounts to a suicide bomb. He thinks it’s the only chance Fiona and Jesse have to get out (and also save his mom). He’s sacrificing himself for them and then this conversation happens.
Jesse: “Listen to me. If you go back out there, you know what’s gonna happen.”
Fiona: “Yeah. I’m going.”
Jesse: “What happened to all that wisdom about you and Mike having different priorities?”
Fiona: “Well, screw wisdom! I belong out there with him… For better or worse.”
Jesse: “It’s probably gonna be for worse.”
Fiona: “Well, I knew that the moment I met him.”
Aaaaand I have hearts in my eyes.
Not going to lie my immediate first thought was that I need to write this scene for one of my OTPs because damn. Seriously damn.
Obviously they lived but that’s like a marriage even though they aren’t married. That’s literal vows kinda. Your OTP could never indeed.
