Nikita Season 4 Review “Bubble”

Talk about going out in a blaze of glory! We knew we wouldn’t come out of Nikita’s final season clean, and the first to fall was always going to Ryan. What made it much less painful, however, was the respectful and impactful way in which the show decided to kill their most expendable (yet my favorite) character – fighting for the truth and doing whatever it would take to get that truth back to Nikita. He’s been largely missing from this farewell season, but it feels right that his death would be the thing that ushers us in to the big showdown next week.

Last week we, and the group, were lured into a false sense of security, and ‘Bubble’ was about accepting and/or rejecting the freedom that offered all of the characters. The medal the government wished to bestow upon Nikita in exchange for her being the face of the spun story was the perfect motif, and meant that we’re now going into the finale much in the same way as we began. Nikita is now part of a whole new system that wishes to use her for their own gain, and she’s bringing her people together in order to defy that system. The added threat of Amanda and The Group just makes things more urgent.
