Nikita has been away for far too long, and it’s definitely ready to come back with a bang if this episode, ‘Intersection’, is anything to go by. Considering this week’s adventure was supposed to be the real winter finale before bad scheduling decisions stepped in, there’s absolutely no intention of easing viewers in gently. A big cliffhanger has the potential to change everything for both the mission and Michael and Nikita’s relationship, and we can expect huge fallout.
The team are still dead set on taking Amanda down whatever the cost, and this week’s episode is devoted to saving Sonya from her dangerous position as a nuked-up double agent. Beginning with a dream sequence that realizes Birkoff’s worst fears about Amanda’s ruthlessness with her asset, he decides to let Nikita in on the secret before things turn sour. After learning the truth, the gang decide that the only way to eliminate the threat is to take out their nemesis once and for all.
