  • Nikita's kind heart almost costs her's life

    9.6
    It is good to have a kind heart and care about others and the concept of this episode - that things between operatives never end good - this really comes out here. Two operatives who have a relationship and Nikita are taken as their mission failed. They are tortured and in the process, Mark gives out a position of substation in order to save his beloved life. She is still killed, they rescued. But the information is out and when he takes up is courage, he breaks in the last minutes and says it was Nikita who betrayed them. So, now there are word against word and both of them seems to pass all tests. So, who did it? Was it Nikita's kind heart that tried to save Angela's life or Mark who tried to protect her beloved? It seems that almost everyone think it was Nikita... So, Michael is trying to save her, we have some really exciting scenes - like when he asks, what she wants when they catch the bad guy, he would say. The truth, says she... In that moment seems that even Michael do not believe her. Despite the Mark's efforts to get the torturer killed, Michael brings him in but he says it was Nikita who betrayed Section as he can see from Michael's face that he wants the to heard the opposite. Very psychological game, the whole episode and that I love. Something really good to watch.moreless

      Nikita: Just ask... (pulls a gun and shoots her) and I shall leap!

    • Caroline: (beginning to interrogate Nikita) Let me tell you how it's going to be. You are going to become my confidante, my sister, my lover (Caroline kisses her). You will tell me everything I want to know, and much that I don't care about. I will ask, and you will leap. That's it.

    • Operations: I just wanted to say thank you for the good work.
      Walter: Don't patronize me. All of a sudden out of the clear blue sky, you come down hear to say thanks for the good work. What do you want me to do, wag my tail? If you want something from me, just come out and say it.
      Operations: Look I just stopped by to give you - give you a pat on the back.
