“You were supposed to tear that place down. You kept it running!”


With the new Division now under the leadership of Ryan Fletcher (Noah Bean) and with a mission to track down and bring in all their rogue agents, Nikita (Maggie Q) gets an assignment that throws her for a loop. The former assassin is asked to bring in an undercover Division operative (Scottie Thompson) who has intimate knowledge about a terrorist group and their leader (David Meunier).

Nikita and Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) are able to break Mia out of a Federal holding facility only to learn she has gone rogue and is under the influence of the cult’s charismatic leader, a former Delta Force officer. With Alex shot and Nikita’s faith in the new Division shaken she must put aside her doubts and try to bring their target in alive before she completes Joshua’s (Meunier) plan to kill a United States Senator. Michael (Shane West) is able to find and stop Joshua, but by the time Nikita is able to reach Mia it is too late to save the woman who reminds her so much of herself in her actions to atone for her legacy with Division.

I hadn’t watched the show before this season, but I’ve enjoyed what I’ve seen so far enough that I may go back and try to track down some of the older episodes. I’m not sure about the Nikita/Michael romance (which has about as much heat as a glass of iced tea), but friendship between Nikita and Alex works well, and I’ve enjoyed how this season has forced the assassin to rethink her motives from destroying the agency that trained her to help running it.

I think you will like the old episodes. Last year was awesome.

This season is pretty good but the first two are great. You should definitely go back and watch them if you can.
