  • Continuity people!!

    Why did Amanda go from sitting to Nikitas right when she cut Nikki's hand to then being on her right!!!! Yeah, why is Amanda always one step ahead.

    Still love the show and actually think this season has been one of the best.
  • Clever misconception as usual... very

    The last 60 seconds made that run.....
  • Why does History Repeat itself?

    I love the show, but why oh why would you have this twist at the end? such a great upper hand only to be ruined by Amanda like always, why does she have the upper hand all the time? I want this Amanda nonsense thrown out the window and a new story line to begin. I'm sure you guys are going for season 4? This Amanda stuff needs to stop or you will get less viewers time after time.

    Make it about something else. Newsroom makes it about current events, it would be nice if Nikita followed a timeline that we all are familiar with. Like this killing of saddam hussein lol. Okay well you guys got the point.

    Good luck and best to you and your crew.

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Amanda: Although I guess one version of Nikita was born in a fire, the rogue Nikita.
      Nikita: When I saved Alex.
      Amanda: And defied the people who made you.
      Nikita: Made me? Amanda, you taught me skills. I passed some of them on to Alex, but you didn't make me any more than I made her.
      Amanda: You made her. And like everything else you love, she will turn against you.

    • Amanda: Oh, okay. I get it. The fire ignites the oil, the oil combusts, the explosion blows the door, and then we get out of here, right?
      Nikita: No, I just started a fire. Hopefully, someone will see it and call the fire department.
      Amanda: (stunned) Hopefully? What if they don't get here in time?
      Nikita: Then we both die a horrible death. And in my book, that's a glass-is-half-full scenario.

    • Alex: Hey. Are you okay?
      Nikita: Yeah. Just something Ari said.
      Alex: About his son?
      Nikita: No, about Amanda. He said that when I let her live, it changed her. Thing is, I wanted that. I was praying for it.
      Alex: You did what you thought was right.
      Nikita: You know that thing Amanda says about the real us being hidden from everyone?
      Alex: There are two Alexes.
      Nikita: Right. I was kind of hoping she was including herself in that group, that maybe there was a real Amanda deep down that would come out if I showed her mercy.
      Alex: Maybe it did. Maybe the real Amanda's worse.

    • Nikita: Tell me, small details about Amanda, anything. You were together for what, twenty years?
      Ari: She was different then, less unhinged.
      Nikita: What changed her?
      Ari: Moscow. You had a gun pointed at her, and you didn't shoot. You let her live, and she found that self-righteous display of mercy to be humiliating. An insult she will never forgive you for. What I want to know is, do you forgive yourself? If you had killed her, a lot of people would still be alive today.
