'Nikita' Recap: 'Wrath' Claims A Significant Character

April 21st, 2012 12:10am EDT
Nikita
This week's Nikita takes us to Norway, where Percy and Roan are visiting a CIA "black site" in order to visit one nasty prisoner: Nicholas Brandt (Rick Ravanello). After having Nikita capture Brandt five years earlier, Percy is ready to set him free and sic him on her now. Yes, it's another case of history coming back into the present - the theme that's run through the entire second season.

After the last revelatory episode, everyone thinks it's going to be smooth sailing, but if it was, that would be a terribly uninteresting show. "It's like you guys need some kind of life and d...

'Nikita' Recap: 'Rogue' (2.14)

February 11th, 2012 12:14am EST
Nikita
The theme of this season of Nikita seems to be everyone's past crawling out of the woodwork (see: Alex's mom, Michael's son), so it's not surprising that this week we meet Nikita's mentor.

Things start in New Jersey, where Percy is having Roan off a Newark detective in an alley in the middle of the night, because that's where these things happen. The next morning, Nikita and Michael (who appears to have gotten a haircut since Percy's dig about his looks last week) are sparring, only to be interrupted by the arrival of Alex. "Amanda definitely has complete control of Division," sh...

'Nikita' Recap: 'Sanctuary' (2.12)

January 14th, 2012 12:08am EST
Nikita
This week's Nikita sees the band back together again, and they play well enough, but the greatest hits are yet to come.

Team Nikita is reunited, but it's not smooth sailing. Birkhoff tells Nikita that Alex (whom he refers to as "Occupy Beach House") tried to swipe his pain meds. Alex and Nikita again talk about what we learned last week - that Alex's mother was having an affair with Sergei Semak. Nikita tells Alex about Carla (whom we now know will be played by Erica Gimpel), who helped her before she ended up in prison.

At Oversight's meeting, while Sean sits awkwardly in the hallw...

'Nikita' Recap: 'Fair Trade' (2.09)

November 19th, 2011 12:06am EST
Nikita
Nikita went into a tailspin last week, largely because it jettisoned much of what made it a good show. Put the pieces back together, and the show gets good again. Who'd have thought?

"My boss doesn't need caffeine, she's high on life," Birkhoff tells a pretty girl named Allison - who happens to be Senator Madeline Pierce's aide - in a coffee shop, as he's putting a tracker in the Senator's coffee. Will Traveler would approve.

Nikita's hoping to get the drop on the remaining members of Oversight by crashing the emergency meeting they've called to discuss her. Division knows she's...

'La Femme Nikita': Where Are They Now?

November 18th, 2011 4:46pm EST
La Femme Nikita
Nikita fans are enjoying La Femme Nikita star Alberta Watson's juicy role on the new series - but what are the rest of LFN's talented cast and crew up to?

Show creators Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran went on to create FOX's smash hit 24, which revolutionized TV during its eight-year run on FOX. Surnow went on, with director Jon Cassar, to the controversial miniseries The Kennedys, while Cochran is rumored to have written a script for a possible 24 movie.

Composer Sean Callery followed Surnow and Cochran to 24, winning critical acclaim for his score work. He currently scores Showtime's n...

'Nikita' Recap: 'London Calling' (2.08)

November 12th, 2011 12:12am EST
Nikita
In this week's Nikita, Michael heads to London to see Cassandra and Max - and unsurprisingly, the trip ends up being anything but a pleasant father and child reunion. It's painful for everyone, including the audience.

In the most awkward and yet least dramatic teaser in the history of this series, Cassandra (Helena Mattsson)'s got a new man in her life, which makes Michael wonder who's hanging around his kid, and she has to be pleaded with to let him see Max at all. Surprisingly, Michael isn't angry with her, but he's certainly ticked off with the two guys that have been following ...

'Nikita' Recap: 'Clawback' (2.07)

November 5th, 2011 1:06am EDT
Nikita
It took seven weeks, but Nikita finally hit its mark this week with an episode that put the screws to nearly every major character. Now will it be the start of something?

Ryan Fletcher (Noah Bean, if you forgot) cannot catch a break. The ex-CIA agent is now in prison, but the suspicious death of a pharmaceutical company employee makes him call Nikita (via his mom, no less). He's cracked a Division operation known as "Grey Rain." Unfortunately for Ryan, Amanda has intercepted the call and has sent Roan (Rob Stewart) to take care of him.

He ends up in the bowels of Division at epi...

'Nikita' 1.22 'Pandora' Recap and Review

May 13th, 2011 7:22am EDT
Nikita
Now we come to the end of the rollercoaster ride that is Nikita. I hated it, then I loved it, then my feelings got all lukewarm, and now...well, now I'm still kind of lukewarm.

Picking up where "Betrayals" left off, Alex has apparently killed Nikita. We know that's not the case, but Joey Greco tells Percy that cardiac arrest is what did our heroine in, which doesn't make him as happy as one might expect. Percy orders Alex back to Division, telling Amanda "that was unexpected," before leaving to visit Oversight.

Meanwhile, Michael is still hanging out in the basement. Birkhoff wal...
