NIKITA AND MICHAEL ARE TOGETHER YAY!
I knew that Michael wasn't going to stay completely on Division's side, and that he would eventually come around. However, I totally didn't expect it to go down like it did. That Kaseem was actually Division himself, and he was made by Percy to have Michael recruited into Division from the very beginning. That must've been such a huge mindfucking blow to him, all this mindgames and betrayal, working for the one who orchestrated the kill on his family. To be used in that way, to be trained and manipulated to work for such an organization that did something like that to his family, to him. Seeing the heartbreak on his face, him crumbling, my heart broke for him. Nikita's heart broke for him, too. Though I like that this is what solidifies on where he stands between himself and Percy and that he and Nikita are on the same page now. Which results into them breaking all that pent up unresolved sexual tension between them and finally getting together. \O/
Seeing Michael, Nikita, Alex and briefly with Owen as well, it's like finally, finally we're getting into an ensemble that I have been waiting for. Nikita, while efficient on her own, needs to have more allies and people working with her for her cause in taking down Division. Besides, and I love how Nikita and Michael interact. They're like the Mother and Father figure for Alex, and Owen is kinda like that fun, cocky sort of uncle or cousin. ;p
I also love the parallel storylines of redemption. Each character story has some form of redemption, the search for salvation and forgiveness and something to be avenged from the past.
In the latest episode we see them trying to get Alex out of Division, to fake her own death so she can get away for good. This is something she's been struggling with for a while, and seeing her making her final decision that she wants to stay and fight makes me feel very proud of her. Nikita wants the best for Alex, perhaps doesn't want her to go down the path in which she fears she might if things get too out of control, however Alex knows this and is determined to not go down that dangerous road. She wants to finish what she started when she teamed up with Nikita in the first place, not backing down, not running away. Even when she's fighting Division, Amanda constantly probing her in revealing the truth, danger lurking around every corner threatening to expose her true identity, she still remains faithful and dedicated to the mission. I love it, I love her. I love all these characters and how they're coming together.
It'll be interesting how everything goes down. While they're all working together, I sense something being revealed or exposed by the end of the season -- something will be compromised, and it's gonna be one hell of a ride, for sure.
Again, I say. This needs to be renewed ASAP. ♥
