I spent three enjoyable hours watching the last three Nikita’s episodes.
Kudos to the producers for bringing Alberta Watson to the cast as Senator Madeline Pierce giving LFN fans a continuity between the old and new Nikita. Alberta Watson as Madeline in La Femme Nikita was awesome as the spooky and the very creepy strategist, right hand to Operations. She was the epitome of cold and unemotional. As Senator Madeline Pierce, she has carryover the characterization from LFN to the new show. I wonder will she torture her son into staying inside Division.
I’m continually amazed at the ease Percy can manipulate Alex. I love the dream sequence where Alex ends up imprisoned in Percy’s glass house. Birkhoff warns Alex the best way to play Percy’s game is not to do it. Birkoff’s warning and the dream, possible foreshadowing of the future and yet, Alex apparently just doesn’t get it.
They say the ultimate sacrifice is to let the one you love go on their way. Nikita pushes Michael to spend time with his son. I didn’t like how Michael’s eyes would gaze over Cassandra. If they make Michael and Cassandra an item, I think I’m going to scream.
Percy may manipulate Alex but poor Sean has his work cut out for him. Apparently, Alex is no pushover and she doesn’t trust Sean. Good for her. Did he think he is so charming Alex would easily give up the kiss? Here’s my hand buddy. Kiss the princess and maybe she will grant you an audience.
Nikita is an excellent fighter. However, the producers of the show are doing just fine keeping her fight routines realistic. Because I’m certain if Michael hadn’t come into the building to backup Nikita, Nigel would have kicked her backside and finished her off.
Overall, I enjoy London Calling. Clawback was a better episode, which saw the return of torture and assassination, shades of the LFN.
I can’t wait to see how Ryan will settle in his new job as a Division operator.
