Awesome episode
27 February 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love that this was a Michael/Nikita centric episode. I love Alex and her character is arguably the most interesting one but she has had a lot of centric episodes and, well, the show is called Nikita.

FLASHBACK! Nikita flirting with Michael. <3 Ooh something is going to happen between them during this mission! Oh gosh I wanted to run into the screen and give Nikita a hug after that scene with Michael (which, btw, I forgot to breathe for the duration). I don't think we have ever seen her so desperate and upset. Also, I think she needs to stop highlighting the fact she wants him to join her side. I think it should be more implied and clearly that argument isn't going to work when Michael is as furious as he is.

And it all comes down to Kasim! Of course it does! I LOVE that they played that card. I only just realised that it was a Kasim-centric episode when I read the episode summary. I think it would have been even better if they hadn't put that in the episode summary. Kasim would be one of the reasons why Michael wouldn't go running to Percy and Amanda (the other reason being that he loves Nikita, of course).

Alex came to check up on Nikita and immediately knew something was wrong. "Something' wrong, what is it? I can tell." "If you want me to stay, I will". <3 <3 <3 And yet Nikita didn't tell her what happened. Probably wise but still if things had gone crazy wrong, Alex would have been in danger (not that I believe Michael would have ever revealed the truth to Percy/Amanda).

FLASHBACK!!! <3 <3 <3 Ohhhhh he tells her about his wife and child <3 <3 <3 Like every scene I have ever wanted to see between them is playing out: when they crossed the line, when he told her about his past, her promising him to help him track down Kasim ..... <3 <3 <3 <3 I had always assumed that Michael/Nikita had had more of a ~relationship~ back in the day but apparently nothing much actually happened ..... it was all UST all along? Wow I think I love them even more now! Ooh Nikita and Go-Go. Scary!

Nathan/Alex .... this is not good. For the first time I actually found Nathan kind of adorable. Thom >>>>>>> Nathan though. Oh ALEX. HAVE YOU NOT LEARNED ANYTHING FROM NIKITA?!?!?! She's going and making the exact same mistake Nikita did despite all of Nikita's warnings. Division are going to kill him! Do you want that you silly girl?!?!?! Percy/Michael .... do you think Percy knows he is making Michael hate him more rather than making him more loyal?! OMG THE FIGHT SCENE AND SWAN LAKE PLAYING!!! Epic! And also really funny in an unintentional sort of way.

Michael/Nikita! Nikita threatening Michael! Oooh they hate each other at the moment. Okay clearly Michael hasn't gotten all the black box information. Nikita should know that.

KASIM WORKS FOR DIVISION?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?! PERCY TOLD HIM TO KILL MICHAEL'S FAMILY?!?!?!??!??! This is like the best reveal ever! It ties everything up so neatly and basically just pushes Michael into Nikita's waiting arms.

You know, I KNEW that Percy was evil but I didn't think he was THAT evil! I thought his one bit of humanity was understanding Michael's need for revenge, even if he wanted to work that to his own advantage.

If I'm nit-picking then you got to laugh about how it all came down to knowing a code to unlock the phone. I mean this is a huge gamechanger, the reason why Michael will join Nikita, finding out the truth about Percy and it all comes down to something so small? Lol!

I KNEW IT WOULD COME DOWN TO NIKITA KILLING KASIM!! I KNEW IT!!!! AND I LOVED THE WAY IT ALL PLAYED OUT. I am sort of sad that it meant that Nikita had to kill someone in cold blood rather than Michael doing it. I mean we know how Nikita hates killing for the sake of killing and although Kasim is an evil, evil man, the reveal that he was told to do what he did by Percy kind of makes us feel a tincy wincy bit like maybe he should be spared ........ oh no, wait, he is still an evil terrorist. Yes, you go girl! Michael talking about his family and Nikita crying!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3.

"I was coming here to double-cross you." "Well, you did it." I loved that Nikita was harsh to him at that point. It kind of needed that.

Now Nikita has two moles in Division. Whoo! Sort of wanted Michael to just shoot Percy though. The funniest thing about all of this is that my main worry has always been someone finding out that Alex is the mole, even Michael so when I knew the moment would come when he discovered the truth, it didn't even cross my mind that the episode wouldn't be all about that. I mean it was hardly discussed. Michael didn't even want to know how/why/anything about the whole Nikita/Alex thing and it wasn't even mentioned again after the first five minutes. Obviously now he will keep the secret but I am wondering whether Michael/Nikita will tell Alex the change in circumstances. And if they don't when she finds out, is she going to be crazy mad at the fact they kept it from her?
