Full Episode Summary

Nikita is still on the run after she was framed for the assassination of the President of the United States. Dale, an ENN news reporter, starts to question what really happened the night of the assassination. Nikita, seeing this as a potential opportunity to clear her name, re-enters the U.S. to talk to Dale but walks right into one of Amanda's traps. Nikita's team is alerted of the problem, and Michael works to track down Nikita before Amanda finds her. While Birkhoff and Ryan assist Michael from their new mobile office, a high-tech aircraft, Alex stakes out a human-trafficking ring and discovers that The Shop is involved.

Season 4 Episode 1 has just aired.

Looking back, Nikita has proven to be a great spy series, one of the best ever on TV. The series arc remained continuous and unbroken. Nikita never lost its way, the way Lost and Dexter did.

Nikita's predecessor, La Femme Nikita, was a good series too. But the bleakness of its "can't win for losing" scenario wore one down after a while. The sun never shone in La Femme Nikita. The sky was forever overcast and grey.

Nikita depicted an equally Machievellian universe, but one in which the good guys had a chance to emerge victorious. The sun frequently poked its head out and shone down on Nikita, and bathed us in warmth and light.

It's been a great four years. Looking forward to the last five episodes.
