  • Nikita and Micheal, headed to the storm, all alone.

    10
    wow! what a season final! ends everything and starts new things.

    full of suprises, thats why I like this show.

    suddenly every important people in Division turned against Percy, he deserve that!

    Alex decided to work solo and she became who scared her in her dreams and she has a very tempting proposal leading her forward.

    looks like that secret group are trying to build a new Division and for getting there they need to find Nikita and make sure their secrets are safe.

    Bircoffe, he made a right choise and a wise move by letting Micheal out of his cell. he is not a coward! he did something to protect his friends.

    Micheal and Nikita both were deeply in trouble. watching Micheal in that situation was hurtful! so was Nikita's. now they are together and seriously in danger. it's ok they can take care of themselves and each other.

    the last thing we saw was two of them driving in a long road and quiet ground and it ends up with a storm they were going toward when the whole country is hunting them down.moreless
  • Can you say out of character much??

    7.5
    Okay so sure. Overall this was a pretty exciting episode. HOWEVER. What the heck was up with Alex?? Her actions, especially at the end, were so out of character it was absolutely ridiculous! After EVERYTHING that Nikita did for her, Alex would NEVER betray Nikita like that. I mean sure I can understand Alex becoming a tad bit upset at the fact that Nikita was too scared to tell Alex up front. But come on. Nikita is human too. She valued Alex's friendship and didn't want to risk ruining that. Yes it was a mistake on Nikita's part but it was an honest and very human mistake. Nikita has done SO much for Alex; and Nikita obviously cares a lot about her. Obviously. Even Alex must see this. I just can't fathom why the script writers or the director or whoever was in charge of this episode would have Alex act so OOC! (out of character) Pisses me off.moreless
  • This finale episode was full of surprises and it kept you guessing.

    8.5
    But one of the important things, that is Alex was not played well. I really liked Alex, maybe more than Nikita but after all that Nikita had done for her, this should not have ended this way. Killing Nikita was essential for Alex to save her life but leaving Nikita at the end and then being caught was not what should have happened.

    I really hope that there will be a second season and that the relationship between Nikita and Alex is good again although I don't think this will happen as probably now Nikita and Alex want different things and will be on different sides. Another grave mistake by Alex after she's helped and saved so many times by Nikita even thinks of betraying her.moreless
  • Just when you thought it couldn't get better...

    I've just finished watching the season one finale and I'm missing this show already. My Wednesday nights are going to be so much duller for a time. But I'm delighted we got a season two.

    There were times, watching this season, when I couldn't imagine what was left for them to tell us - so much was packed in. But in a finale which gave us plenty of trademark action, sizzling pace, great character moments and twists and turns galore, we ended up with all of the major players in position and set up to keep us guessing into season two.

    A terrific ending to a wonderful season. Roll on season two. I can't wait to find out where we go from here!

  • Great finish to a great first season!

    9.5
    This episode had everything in it. Great storyline with some nice twists and turns.

    Great game changer with Amanda & Alex joining forces in the Oversight. On the other hand Michael & Nikita are much stronger together.

    There is a great chance we see even better Season 2. Why not even more seasons! Enjoy it, fans!

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The senator from Oversight who Percy meets with in the restaurant and who appears again in front of Alex at the end of the episode is played by Alberta Watson, who played Madeline, the role equivalent to Amanda, in the original La Femme Nikita series.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Michael: For every truth in that box, there is a lie out there in the real world. Innocent people who are being framed for crimes they didn't commit. Corrupt people who are in charge thanks to crimes no one knows about. That's gotta end.
      Birkhoff: So, you're just gonna go off and play Lone Ranger? Forget about Division, man, You're gonna have the whole world hunting you down.
      Michael: Yeah, I'll try and keep that in mind.

    • Michael: (over loudspeaker at the CIA) Paging Agent Nikki. Agent Nikki please proceed to the nearest phone and dial 626.
      Nikita: (finds a phone) Michael?
      Michael: You okay?
      Nikita: Oh babe, I will be when you get me out of here.
      Birkhoff: God, get a room.

    • Nikita: Do you think things ever reach a point that's so bad that you can't come back from?
      Michael: You brought me back.
      Nikita: You were never that far away.

    • Alex: This war against Division is your obsession.
      Nikita: My obsession?
      Alex: Nikita, look at this place. All of this space, and you still sleep on a Division recruit bed. This fight is some sick need of yours. I have my own fight now.
      Nikita: This was never about revenge. When I told you that you had something to live for, I was talking about balance, I was talking about making things right. If you do this, you are gonna end up somewhere you don't wanna be.
      Alex: That's my decision. Let me go.

    • Michael: You're not stupid, Birkhoff, you're just a coward. You know Percy's corrupt but you turn a blind eye to save your own skin. That's your choice, but you have to live with it.
      Birkhoff: You know what? You even sound like her now.
      Michael: That's because my eyes are open. Nikita's right.
      Birkhoff: No, Nikita is dead. She's dead, Michael. I was listening in over the com, she...I warned her what would happen if she went up against Percy. You warned her, too. Then you went and joined her. Encouraged her. That was your choice.

    • Micheal: Stop thinking about the past, I'm talking about the future.
      Nikita: I know, the future is what I'm worried about.

    • Amanda: (referring to Nikita) You needed to see the look in her eye when you asked her if she killed your father. You needed to know the truth from her. That's why you didn't warn her.
      Alex: I didn't warn her because...I'm sorry, that's not polite. Because screw Nikita.
      Amanda: Well, if you feel that way, then why fake her death? Why save her life?
      Alex: Because screw all of you, too.
