Nikita Review: "Covenants"

by at . Comments

If for some reason you aren’t aboard ship Mikita, tonight’s episode, "Covenants" must have been horrible for you to sit through. But if you are like the rest of us, I can only imagine the cheering that went on!

Finally, Mikita becomes MIKITA!

From the first review I conducted about this show, I said that my wish was for Michael to turn against Percy and team up with Nikita to take down Division.

It took them a very, very, very long time to get there, but they are there.

Mikita Scene

As for Michael, I shed tears when he told Nikita his plans for his family. Percy is a disgraceful human being, who we found out, wanted Michael dead.

Michael was supposed to blow up with his wife and daughter. Shane West and Maggie Q were incredible, their performances moving, which made this my favorite episode of the season.

I never would have guessed that Kasim was Division at one point.

I sympathize for Alex’s character, and her situation. Although I’m still not 100% positive that Nathan isn’t involved with Division in any way (for some reason I believe he would be dead if wasn’t), Alex seems to really care about him.

Of course she doesn’t want to be alone, and what girl wouldn’t jump on the opportunity to have a hot guy keep her company while she’s on the run?

Tonight was the perfect blend of action, romance, and betrayal.

The look on Michael’s face when he thought of his daughter, and the look in his eyes when he approached Percy at the end could have been two different people for how different his emotions were. I’d also like to note that I couldn’t be happier that Nikita killed Kasim.

Though the episode ended with the amazing uniting of Mikita, we should not forget about sorry Ari! Nikita turned on him, and she is now a priority on his enemy list.

What did you think, TV Fanatics? Discuss tonight's Nikita episode below!

love this TV show, i watching from episode 1 to 17 at first kinda boring but now so exciting i can't wait to see the next episode. I was hopping Nikita have more allies to fight back. I do think Alex will be the most danger later on and what if she betray Nikita. Please continue the next season soon..................

Agree that Nathan is definitly a mysterious chracter seeing as his parents are also dead too, which is what Division look for for recruits. I kinda thought Kasim ws redeemed after that but i have missed a few Nikkita episodes so im not sure what he's done other than complete Percy's orders, but i shall be watching next weeks :)

Not a fan of mikita, so as you mentioned before it WAS horrible to sit through. Because if u ignore the mikita bits, the episode itself wasn't too great.

Well now Nikita made Mikial realize whoe Percy really is, I kind of expect that Birkoff will be the next to dout Percy and maybe turn against him. Alex has a way of surviving, and she will find using Nikita and Mikial to protect Nathen, because he is not involved. There will be competition over Nikita, Ryan, Owen, and Mikial. And if anyone has watched "Walk to Remember" with shane West, You can definantely see a similar type of character. Also Alex is my favoritate, Watched her in "Ordinary Miracles"

Great episode. I find the plot's going a bit fast; We find out Alex is the mole in the first episode, Nikita found one black box already, Michael found out that Alex was the mole, and Michael already is working with Nikita. There will have to be a lot of filler episodes in the future.

what i'm trying to figure out is did mikita start before nikita was seeing daniel or did mikita begin after daniel died? if it's the former, then wouldn't michael have been a bit funny about daniel? and nathan is definitely dodgy! he has always seemed dodgy but as soon as he said he had no family, my alarm bells started ringing like crazy. it's too much of a coincidence.

I bettya Nathan is a black box guardian!!!!

I didn't find Kaseem being part of division to be such a big surprise because I had a feeling all along. It seemed rather odd that an organization as powerful as division would have SUCH a hard time tracking down one person. So I thought that percy might be the one protecting kaseem.
But I'm so glad that they writers went there because now michael REALLY hates percy and there is no room for him to turn his back on nikita.
:D

I think Nathan's part of division too...This has Amanda written all over it...
MIKITA!!!!!!!! finally, I love these two and wanted something between them since the first episode!!!!!! Maggie Q and Shane West were awesome!!!!!!!!
I wonder if Amanda knows about Kasim being part of division!!!!
I love that Mikita's happening and that he's going to help her take down division...but am I the only one that thinks that this is to soon??? I kind of expected them to team up in season 2 or 3...but I'm pleasently surprised!!!!!!! haha
