After a lot of solid episodes, with barely a dud among them, this week’s Nikita, ‘With Fire’, left me kind of cold for the first time. We’re back with Amanda, as her 20-year spy partner Ari is left to fend for himself when taken by Division. Of course, this throws some doubt on Nikita’s relationship with Michael, and our heroine has to question how big a toll the spy life can have on a marriage.
And she also has to shake Amanda off at every turn, as her nemesis crosses another line this week. By killing innocent civilians, Nikita has rediscovered her mission statement and rekindled her intense hatred of her former teacher. Random acts of violence around the country present Division with a fresh challenge and some big decisions to make, with those CIA-sanctioned kill missions looking more and more appealing by the day. The Crimson Resistance are a deadlier threat than this new Division have faced thus far, and funds are running low.
