Excellent episode, 24 September 2011
Author: Hank Boo

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I simply love Nikita. Season 2,episode 1 was a great way to pick up the plot from last season. The beginning and ending of this episode earned was on edge(I love action/fighting scenes-especially with Nikita(Maggie Q)). Can't wait till next week's episode. I love the fact how Nikita and Michael allied with (surprise!!!! Birkhoff) He is the man!! I also like the fact that this episode intertwined into 2-3 subplots, other than just reveal Oversight and destroy the black-box. The various subplots keeps the show interesting and wanting for more. This is why S2E1 earned my 10/10 stars. Amanda is now in charge of Division and in my opinion, a door to introducing new characters that will continue per episode, such as Sean. To me, he looks like the new Michael, haha. Who knows, maybe he will fall for Alex and then Division finds another recruit. xD
