Masterpiece and perfectly executed well ending!
14 May 2016 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

Nikita the second Season is so far my favorite season of the show. I have completed the second season and I really loved it. It is just like Alias Second that had a good start and second season in Alias was awesome, but in Nikita Season 2 was incredible I had a lot of fun watching all 23 episodes and I was hooked up on the edge with story lines what will happen next.

Clean Sweep starts off shortly after the previous one ended Amanda believes there is a saboteur in Division when she finds that the safe to deactivate Clean Sweep from inside the base is rigged with explosives in case it was tampered with, and Roan is her prime suspect. To avoid detection, Roan removes his tracker, and kills those who attempt to disarm the bomb. Alex, under Birkhoff's instructions, returns to Division in order to activate the emergency generator that used to run the missile silo that Division situates. In the meantime, Amanda decides to release Percy. Percy would later kill his escorts and arrive at the house where the guardians are holding Oversight. Michael, Nikita and Sean, who already arrived there, catch Percy. Nikita threatens to kill Percy unless the guardians release Oversight. However, Percy orders them to kill all Oversight members apart from Madeline. Later, they are ambushed by a Gogol strike team. As Nikita rescues Madeline, Percy initiates Clean Sweep, though Alex successfully overrides it. She later locks herself in Percy's cell to avoid Roan's reprisal. Percy then escapes with Miller. After calling Amanda, Madeline realizes that she is losing control of her. It is further revealed that Amanda is working with Gogol.

This was an excellent episode perfectly executed, specially the story-line and opening new chapter in the second half of the season. I was impressed of how Percy (Xander Berkeley) escaped and eluded the division with the help of his two trusted guardians who storm the Oversight building and taking the members as hostages in exchange for Percy. I love this episode because it was a rescue mission and this was the first time we see Sean Pierce (Dillon Casey) teaming up with Nikita (Maggie Q) and Michael (Shane West) in a rescue attempt saving his mother. The story was also brilliant that Percy head a mole in the inside of the division by Roan (Rob Stewart). No wonder this episode got 9 by IMDb rating score.

Clean Sweep is also reference to the Terminator when Birkoff points out as Roan to be the terminator. There is also a lot of action in this episode. Nikita (Maggie Q), Michael (Shane West) and Sean (Dillon Casey) are not only fighting guardians, but they also have to battle Gogol Russian assassins trying to kill them. They rescue Senator Madeline Pierce (Alberta Watson) R.I.P. (1955 - 2015) you are missed and she promises Nikita and Michael to gave them presidential pardon which is a start and a more close step up, to bring the division down. Percy, Roan and Patrick teamed together, they escaped from the division and they are on the run now. This perfectly executed episode was directed by Brad Turner, who also directed 2 Episodes in Prison Break, La Femme Nikita and 24, he directed a lot of TV shows, so this episode was truly amazing and rocks to death!

Overral: I am giving it a 10 out of 10 to this episode I am going to start watching Season 3 soon, I can't wait for the third season. I love also how Alex (beautiful Lyndsy Fonseca) activate the emergency generator spoils Percy's plan killing everyone in the division. The episode ended well which I am calling it perfectly executed.
