I think this was the best episode. Peter Outerbridge gave an outstanding performance as the pragmatic but doomed Ari. Alex and Nikita will have to make hard choices. Will it divide them? Nikita hated Ari but tried hard to keep her promise to save him. Ari gave his life to steal the black box from Amanda.
I didn't care much about season 2, the overall throughline wasn't that good and the individual were neither. But season 3? Getting better with every single episode :) Alex is kicking ass in the training room again from time to time and it really adds that special feel to this place "Division". They even manage that all this relationship stuff isn't cheesy anymore, it's really all well integrated with the missions issues.
Anyways, this show feels more advanced now, even the already great direction is up another notch.
Ah. Those guys should've done Human Target also, it would've survived it's second season also. Still sad that one had to go.
Alex is totally right!!!! They always do what Nikita wants and without question asked. It's time to question some of those decisions especially the bed ones.
Larissa is totally innocent in all of these and she saves Alex's life. Ari is a killer who help to planned to kill Alex father. Alex always has Nikita back and this time when Nikita had a chance to prove she has Alex back and she totally made the wrong call, chosen to save Ari other helping Alex. What Sean offer was the best option kill Ari with the chip and go and save Larissa.
I'm afraid what this will do to their relationship, Amanda is psycho bitch playing stupid mind games but she did make a couple of good points in the last episode and in this one. And both Alex and Nikita knows that but to afraid to admit it and now it kind of stuck In front of them can't wait to see how they get through it!!!!
