Nikita Review: Who Will Michael Choose?

at . Comments

In "London Calling," Michael heads to London to see Cassandra and their son, Max. Once Michael knew about his child, it didn't take him long to trek to see him. To the core, Michael is a good and honest man, how will he balance his love for Nikita and his fundamental need for a family?

As much as I adore Michael and Nikita together, you can't deny that Michael and Cassandra have a spark between them. It was obvious in Belarus and in London as well. Michael may have reassured Nikita he loves her, but she isn't blind to the bond her man and Cassandra share.

Cassandra, Michael, Nikita

Even though the gun men in the park were after Cassandra, that was a wake-up call for Michael. He was putting his son and Cassandra at risk by visiting. In this case, he had to stay to protect them from Tupelov and dragged Nikita into it as well.

When Cassandra got kidnapped, she knew that Michael would be the only one who could save her. As a result, he almost fried and she almost drowned. However, two much bigger reveals took place. Michael was genuinely angry at Nikita for saving him over trying to rescue Cassandra. Then, he ran straight into bullets after Cassandra. What does this say about his relationship and feelings for Nikita?

Unfortunately, they didn't get a chance to discuss it because Cassandra dropped a huge bomb: she's MI-6! What??!?

In the end, it was a nice twist that Nigel, Cassandra's handler, was responsible for stealing the money and putting her in danger. It allowed for Michael and Nikita to get away free and clear. Only Michael will never be free and clear of Cassandra because of Max.

Nikita has had a difficult and lonely life. For once, she has someone she loves and cares about and who feels the same way. I don't know how she found it within her to let Michael go. It was the biggest gift that she could give to Michael, so selfless. It broke my heart to see her walk away and crushed it that he didn't stop her.

What do you think will happen now? Will Michael say goodbye to Max (and Cassandra) and return to Nikita?

Odds and Ends

  • Michael and Max on the couch watching cartoons and eating cookies - adorable!
  • Fight scenes are usually very well choreographed on Nikita; the park and restaurant fights were no exception. They were entertaining to watch and original. I never knew exactly what was coming next.
  • Percy convinces Alex to transfer money for him in exchange for $100,000 to start her crusade against Semak and it notifies Guardian to start the Secondary Procedure. Since it is from Percy, it can't be anything good.
  • Sean is still an enigma. He says he wants to use Alex to get Nikita in order to protect his mother, Madeline, so he can leave Division. I don't buy it. Or, I guess if that is his plan, I don't think it is going to work. He is falling for Alex even if he doesn't realize it.
  • No Amanda this week or any more on Ryan. I hope someone is at least feeding him while she was gone.
  • Birkhoff had foresight with his question to Michael before he left for London: "So ... are you coming back?"

wel i like nikita


I hope that the producers, come up with a solution to keep Michael and Nikita together, she has been through so much, she really needs a loving man like Michael next to her, they form a super team.Please kill off Cassandra, or make her fall in love with some other guy. I think Nikita deserve to be happy in the end.I find Cassandra a little bit false;Carry on the series as they are, Nikita and Michael fighting, together as a couple;


well i really love nikita and micheal together bcus dey make a great couple and dey r vry much compatiable....i really want micheal to go back to nikita and work together abt der future and make a great family at the end


The only way this plays out (the show IS about Nikita, after all!) is that Cassandra is going to die, probably to save Michael--or even Nikita's--life. That means either the baby goes home with Michael and Nikita or else the little one perishes, as well. Michael and Nikita--end game. Unless it turns out that Daniel is still alive??


Cassandra was surprising. Will Sean be Alex's "Michael"? More viewership doesn't equal better television. Fringe and Nikita were both good in my opinion this week.


I loved this episode everything in it was amazing.cant was to see what happens next.


@dessy yeah, i agree. as much as i think nikita is fun, it isn't even in the same universe as fringe, let alone the same level


One word:,,AMAZING!" Amazing story and everything! I´m so very eager how it will now continue ( Mikita break ) Let´s go!!!!!


As die hard Mikita fan feeling so sad and cry coz on da end they got separeted....
