One of the worst episodes of the series
12 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Season three really went off the rails, and this episode just continues the downward spiral to the nth degree. I loved seasons 1-2, but after that things went consistently downhill. To begin with Michael mumbles/whispers 90% of his lines, and it became annoying to the point of utter distraction. It doesn't make him appear "cold and non-emotional", if that was the intent; it makes him come across as retarded. His one word answers, over and over and over again became almost comical, but not in an intended funny way. Furthermore, the story lines in this episode are all over the place, and it's one of the least realistic/believable episodes to date.

As far as his "great romance" with Nikita, that's equally comical. He's more of an Android than Data from Star Trek. He's emotionless, and for those paying attention, one needs emotions to feel and express love. He fails pitiably in that department, and so do the episodes that attempt to promote the great love between him and Nikita. He doesn't deserve her love, and no amount of finagling is ever going to fix that.

To the other reviewer who found this to be the best episode in the series, all I can do is shake my head. In my book, this was clearly one of the worst. I actually had to fast forward through the "love scene". It made me want to laugh -- but again...not in a good way.
