After last week, the evil organization called The Shop benches Amanda for her incompetence against Nikita as they decide to take matters into their own hands and deal with Nikita their own way. This doesn’t stop Amanda from getting involved in some way as she tries to advise them about Nikita, but the leader of the Shop makes an offer to Nikita she can’t refuse as he feels everyone has a price. Nikita and her team discover that the Shop are aiming missiles at the US carrier ships and Nikita confronts Amanda about it. The missiles hit not only the city and the carriers, but seem to hit both Nikita and Amanda as well. They want viewers to think Amanda is dead, which wasn’t the case when we found out that she’s alive. I assume that it was an impostor Amanda who died in the explosion.
Birkhoff’s story with his dad continued from last week and this time they were able to meet face-to-face. Meanwhile, Alex and Owen are trying to work out their trust issues and Alex has used up whatever money is left to to keep the team going. This is the beginning of the end of the series as things are setting up to get darker for Nikita and her team. Great episode overall.
