Nikita s1 ep 15

Ryan and Nathan count: 0 for 2, excellent start. “Origins” story about Alex’s past: hm, not so sure.

But if you’ve seen this, you’ll know that, despite the flashbacks and the human traffickers and the annoying Irina character, I loved it anyway.  Dudes. Michael and Nikita in the same room?  Check.   Michael and Nikita working and fighting together?  Check.  Nikita accidentally saying something so revealing that both Michael and I raised our eyebrows (mine with accompanying squee, his with quizzical expression)? Check, check, CHECK!

To be honest, I should probably just give Nikita episodes a shipper points rating rather than try and pretend I care about anything else – it’s not like I’m fooling anybody.  However, even if poor Alex doesn’t get much a look-in with me, the flashbacks could have been worse, I absolutely loved the Anastasia parallel and her reclaiming her identity at the end was kind of cool; origins story or not, the whole episode was much more entertaining than it should have been.

    The non-shipper parts of this episode were good as well.

    There were non-shipper parts?

    (Kidding! Sort of.)

    Not many, in fairness.
