I’ve just had the pleasure of watching the latest episode of Nikita, ‘True Believer’.
This week focuses on Division asset Mia, who’s undercover ina terrorist organisation named 3rd Wave. She’s captured by the cops and sent to prison, just as 3rd Wave are planning an attack. Nikita and Alex go to save her, but it’s revealed that Mia has gone rogue and is a true believer in 3rd Wave’s mission, and she shoots Alex (only in the shoulder). Back at Division, they discover the location of the new safehouse, and Nikita, Michael and a team head there, only to get out-matched by the highly organised group. Joshua, the leader, and Mia escape. However, they have found the target for the attack – a Senator.
After being kitted out with some great new Birkhoff tech, Michael and Nikita head to the arena and Nikita manages to find and subdue Mia, who is not the bomber. Sean and Alex discover that Joshua has a partner (the Senator’s head of security), and BUTR (Birkhoff’s new toy) puts the video evidence through to Nikita’s phone, and Mia sees. Mia agrees to help Nikita. Michael and Sean (now on scene) take down Joshua and his partner, and Nikita takes out the terrorists, except the bomber. Mia stops him just in time, but the crowd notices and a guard shoots at him, but Mia puts herself in the way. Mia dies, but not before thanking Nikita. The episode ends with Nikita and Ryan making up again, after a series of issues that almost made nikita lose faith.
It was another strong showing, with an interesting plot. There are still plenty of questions left, but hopefully we’ll get some answers soon. To hear me talk more about this week’s show, please tune in to The VRO later today (details will be put on my twitter), where myself and Nadia Little will recap the show in more detail, and discuss what may come next.
