NIKITA “Guardians” Review

NIKITA "Guardians" Season 2 Episode 10 – It’s the midseason finale for Nikita and we have to wait a whole month to see the fallout of the huge, game changer revealed at the end of the episode. That Alex’s mother was still alive has been a theory long put forward by fans, though that hardly lessens the impact of actually seeing her. While Alex has constantly mourned her father, not much attention had been given to her mother’s demise and that has not gone without notice.
