Everyone is still reeling from Michael’s accident in this week’s Nikita, ‘Survival Instincts’, and Nikita has to ask herself whether having Owen as her partner in the field in the next best thing to working with her fiancé.
Michael is still working the cases from back at the base, and I have to say I enjoyed this new dynamic a lot. Taking Alex out of the equation (which she currently is), now there are two agents in the field and two back home, with Michael training Owen up to his best standard just in case it becomes a permanent arrangement. There’s a sense that he’s given up, and he tells Nikita that he wants to stay behind even after he’s gained the full use of his bionic hand. I don’t really buy that this state of the art technology wouldn’t allow him to get back in fighting shape, but I guess it’s more psychological than anything else.
