I really thought Nikita was done being a loner. I’m pretty upset that she won’t let her loved ones help her and even more upset that she left her ring behind. Nikita always thinks she knows best, but in this case she doesn’t. She needs this group of people to help her get through this and clear her name.

But my biggest question coming out of the season 3 finale is: Why does Amanda and the group want everyone to think the President has been assassinated? With a (grainy) picture of Nikita out there and the largest manhunt in history under way to bring her in, Nikita is far from safe. She was surrounded by the little family she’s built for herself and they all wanted to help her. Even though she’s left them, I know they’ll still do everything they can to expose the truth. But that’s next season. For now, I want to focus on three great moments from “Til Death Do Us Part.”

1. The President is (not) assassinated. I was shocked when the President took her own life. Even though it looked like Nikita was going to go through with the assassination, Michael got through to her on Amanda’s comm. Yes, he had to lie about having the antidote but he did it for a good reason. When Nikita tries to tell POTUS that there are those in her inner circle who want her dead, she claims to already know that. Then she picks up the gun and shoots herself in the head. It was shocking. But even more surprising? Seeing the President alive and well and in a cell. And she has no idea the world thinks she’s dead.

2. Michael dies, but not permanently. Alex thinks they’ve found a solution to their nanotoxin problem. They’ve located Francois Chau‘s Dr. Kang who should be able to synthesize an antidote to prevent the nanotoxin from killing Michael. But the problem is that someone is always watching and Dr. Kang is killed before he can help. The only other way to counter the toxin is to “kill” Michael for twenty minutes. The toxin can be neutralized and Michael will be safe. It seems logical and everyone else on the team has had to “die” in order to not be killed, so he’s joining a very elite group. But they’re having trouble restarting Michael’s heart and he’s been down for a while. It’s not until Nikita’s by his side, holding his hand and talking to him that Michael is revived. I may have gotten a little misty eyed when it looked like he might be permanently dead.

3. Nikita saves the day. I will never get tired of seeing Nikita kick some major ass and bring the bad guys down. She’s rushing back to division after escaping from the White House and the team is in trouble. Amanda has ordered the remaining members of the dirty thirty to take Nikita’s team out and they’ve definitely got the tactical advantage – the team is out of ammo and they’re all getting their butts kicked. In comes Nikita and she takes all the remaining bad guys out. She gets like that when her loved ones are in danger. Don’t they know they shouldn’t mess with her?

Even though season 4 will be a short one, I’m glad we get to spend a little more time with Nikita and the people she loves. I can’t wait to see how they clear her name and I hope they’re able to track her down quickly and bring her back into the fold. I know she’s doing this to keep them safe, but doesn’t Nikita realize they’re better when they’re together? See you next season.
