    This episode of Nikita was over the top i loved it and in this episode Amanda became a much better villain still not as good as Percy who always had a plan but still great. I guess this season will end Amanda and if the show gets renewed the show must get a villain that is even greater for the shows final season cuz if its getting renewed it will be its final season.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Alex: And what about Amanda, any theories as to her next move?
      Nikita: Yes. Before today, I thought that Amanda just wanted me dead because I was the obstacle to her plans. But that's not it. I am her plan. She doesn't want to kill me, she wants me to suffer, and that means destroying everything I care about. I'm not her target. All of you are.

    • Cyrus: Why'd you do this for me? Why'd you risk your life?
      Nikita: Don't take this the wrong way, but I didn't. Amanda wants to teach me a lesson, she can't do it if I'm dead. She cares too much. She's not done with me yet.

    • Amanda: There's no way to disarm the bomb on site.
      Nikita: What's the point of a test I can't pass?
      Amanda: It's not a test, it's a lesson...the first of many. This one is simple. To stop me, you're going to have to sacrifice the people you care about, even the ones you care about just a little, like Cyrus there.

    • Amanda: Nikita thinks she can run Division without selling her soul. She's wrong. She's going to have to sacrifice more than she could ever imagine. That is the lesson she needs to learn.
      Anne: How will she learn it?
      Amanda: The same way she's learned everything she knows. I teach her.

    • Cyrus: Nice to finally meet you, by the way. Big fan.
      Nikita: Let's go back to Division. I'll get you an autograph--after I bring you in alive.
