Getting serious but swaying focus
27 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For the first time or what feels like the first time the story is shifting focus off of Nikita. Event's in previous episodes have tore the picture creating puzzle pieces that are shifting into new areas to create a different picture than what was there before. Revenge is still the main attitude, along with envy and a much needed dose of courage. I can't help but wonder if this is the end of Nikita as she's known because it seems as if she is fishing for a more strategic way of getting back at her former handlers by being somewhat of a mentor to one of there new recruits who's landed a promotion that induces her with previously unallowed access to the known outside world, but that access isn't without it's leash. That leash is the brick wall that stands in the way of Nikita and what she's constantly searching for the right tool to break that invisible bond. Along that path other agencies are gravitating towards Nikita's self-purpose, aware of it or not, but more than likely they are aware because although Niktia was trained to basically disregard typical feelings she's quite patient.
