Nikita Season 4 Review “Wanted”

You’d think that, with only six episodes left of the CW’s Nikita, the events of last season’s finale would be a low point for both our heroine and the rest of her ‘squad’, but that’s not the case. The end of this season premiere, ‘Wanted’, sees Nikita in an even worse situation than before, and I’m not entirely sure she’s going to be able to get herself out of it in time for the finale. That’s not a bad thing – this show is at its best when it’s unpredictable – but we should all be prepared for some bloodshed.

And thankfully everyone turned up to the party – with Alex and Sonja campaigning to stop human trafficking, Birkoff, Ryan and Michael still searching for Nikita and Amanda cackling in her secret lair as she ruins Nikita’s life. Even Owen, who has been known to go missing for several episodes at a time, returns in the finale moments of the episode to remind us of his annoying amnesia plot. Most of our characters are separated for now, and I can see this being a season with a lot of remote contact, but I have no doubt they’ll give us the epic showdown we’ve been waiting for.
