You know that feeling when you go to the circus and watch the tightrope walker? That feeling in the pit of your stomach that one slip and the dangerous balancing act is over. Down she goes. Show over. You want her to make it across but each step’s an agony like learning the dame or Jake you love is stepping out to be in another’s arms. And in either case, you can’t look away.
And for Miles Pike, he walks his own tightrope, trying to balance his secret with his mission and with learning that something deeper is going on. But for Miles, if he missteps, there’s no net at the bottom of his fall.
