Forget the mission! Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) and Sean (Dillon Casey) smooch! Let’s backtrack. This week on “Nikita,” Percy’s (Xander Berkeley) nuclear weapons plan seems to be in overdrive. Ryan (Noah Bean) wants to go to the Director of the CIA, Morgan Kendrick (Brian Howe), but Nikita (Maggie Q) doesn’t agree. That never ends well.
Especially when Michael (Shane West) takes his side. One of the strengths of the show is how much disagreement we see on the team. Other shows would make that tension the focus. In “Nikita,” it’s more like a family fight that could end up affecting the entire world. We had another heartwarming moment at the end of the episode when the gang ends up at Ryan’s safe house after blowing up their own.
And now back to that smooch. It’s a classic story. One half of the couple denies that she’s in love. The other half has to get to her by saying how he feels while under the influence of something. Alex shoots him up with painkillers after he gets shot and he tells her how he feels. It was really sweet and shippers should be satisfied.
So, what is Percy’s real plan? “She just thinks I’m building a bomb.” Uh oh. The team now has an in with the CIA through Kendrick, but can they stop him in time? There are only two episodes left in the season. Where do you think this is going? Let us know below.
