Nikita: 4×06 – Canceled

I am a massive Nikita fan but I have to say that I never really got into the final season.

I don’t know whether it was because they tried to cram too much into too short a time, the fear that everyone was a double or the fact that Nikita/Alex were apart for five out of six episodes but it didn’t feel like the awesome show I’d known from previous seasons.

I also don’t feel Michael/Nikita ever properly dealt with the fact that she left him at the end of last season.

However, I do think the finale was fitting.  I am going to be honest, I did really think that Nikita had gone off the rails for a bit until I put two and two together.  I think the final scene with Nikita/Amanda was especially clever.

I like how flashbacks to Nikita’s first day at Division were used and I am glad that they all (apart from Ryan) got their Happy Ever After (although how comes Sonya was basically absent from the finale?!).

Overall though this season was lacking the Nikita magic that I had come to love.  However, the first season will always hold its place in my heart as one of the best seasons of television drama ever.
