The best amazing action - packed episode of all time!
8 May 2016 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

That was action packed strong emotional amazing episode one of the best one of all time, I have ever seen. Sanctuary is twelve episode of Nikita in Season 2 and it is one of the best so far in this season. Here we finally see back together Nikita, Alex, Michael and Birkoff all together working again and they aren't enemies anymore. For the first time we see Sean Pierce Facing Off against Alex and Nikita.

This episode has three story's one evolves Nikita, Alex, Birkoff and Sean Pierce, the second story one evolves around Sean Pierce's mother Senator Madeline Pierce and Oversight convene and realize that Division run by Amanda is no better than Percy's management, and decides to enact "Clean Sweep" and third story evolves around Amanda in the division who wants to place Percy in an induced coma after she find's out that Percy (Xander Berkeley) is planning an escape attempt and alerts Division on high alert for anything out of the ordinary.

I love this Episode I think is very strong and emotionally storyline. The story lines move very fast, and the writer do very well in terms of blending together both serialized and procedural stories. Director Steven A. Adelson did directed wonderful the twelve episode and the writer Andrew Colville did very well job writing a storyline.

Every one in the supporting cast does a very excellent job. Alberta Watson who played senator Madeline Pierce did a terrific job and having fun playing her character. Alberta Watson also played Madeline in the original 90's hit La Femme Nikita (1997). R.I.P. Alberta Watson (1955 - 2015) you are missed.

Dillon Casey as Sean Pierce was outstanding as a Navy Seal who tried to wipe out Nikita (Maggie Q) and Micheal (Shane West). Melinda Clarke as Amanda the villain was terrific in her performance.

I really had a blast watching this episode and I love it, I can't wait for seeing next episode Clean Sweep. This Episode Sanctuary is the bets one for me and really brilliant and I love the twist. The episode ends with a cliffhanger, which you have to wait and watch next episode to see what will happen. 10 out of 10 incredible emotional strongest storyline ever!
