Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Michael (Shane West) becomes alarmed when he hears Cassandra (guest star Helena Mattsson) is in trouble and rushes off to help her. He discovers General Tupelov (guest star Paulino Nunes) has accused her of stealing two million dollars and has threatened to kill her unless she returns it. However, when Cassandra's story doesn't add up, Nikita (Maggie Q) becomes suspicious of what she might be hiding. Meanwhile, Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) receives a very tempting offer from Percy (Xander Berkeley) that could give her the resources to eliminate Semak. Jeffrey Hunt directed the episode written by Kalinda Vazquez (#208).

Another great episode, with a pretty big twist for Cassandra. Loved how she took out the two gunmen after the car went over the cliff. I thought with how the episode ended that we might see her join Michael and Nikita in the states, but glad they didn't go that route.

I'm still alive! Yeah, this season's been great. I loved the action in this episode.

I'm enjoying the show while I can. I'm afraid it's not getting another season.

The last few weeks have actually been steady.

^Yeah, but it's been in the .6 range. Hopefully CW takes into account its crappy timeslot.

Finally caught this tonight.

Solid episode with lots of good action and crazy shootouts. I liked the reveal that Cassandra was actualy MI-6.

Nikita was so badass this episode. Her fight scenes were amazing, especially where she did that ceiling spin and kick. I absolutely love Maggie Q. She looks good with the blonde streaks.

at how Percy played Alex for a fool with that whole bank transaction.

It's frustrating to see this show barely get 1.5M viewers a week on Friday nights. Granted I know the CW ratings are down alot this season, but this is such a well produced/directed and written action serial.

Now that it is on Hulu and season 1 on Netflix, they will see a bump in ratings or at the very least they will make more money on the show and keep it on the air.
