Really solid episode as usual. Too bad very few people, especially in this forum watch this.

The Nikita and Amanda fight scene in the beginning was pretty good, although a little bit too short.

As the episode title says, I loved how this episode focused on the changing of Power between Division and Zetrov. Percy's hostile takeover of Division was awesome. I loved how he outsmarted Amanda.

I also loved how Alex manipulated the Zetrov board to force out Ari as well.

I loved the scene where Nikita outsmarted Amanda and using past emotions that she may have felt for her being her mentor at Division.

Good stuff this week, too bad the next episode is almost 4 weeks from now.

Not a good day for Amanda and Tasarov. I'm glad they kept Amanda, though. Great stuff between her and Nikita (and Nikita looked amazing in that blue dress).

Funny how Percy took Division back by actually telling the truth. I'm guessing Sonya will join Team Nikita in the future (obviously, Birkhoff is smitten).

It wasn't much of an action scene, but it provided some good insight into Amanda. That was the first time she ever showed some conscience. I liked Nikita's line when she spared Amanda's life, that she saw it as a moment of strength, not weakness.

I don't understand the CW's weird scheduling. Fingers crossed that this somehow manages to get a third season.

Maggie Q looked so good in this episode that I decided to improve my eating habits, and work harder at my career, just so that in case I ever meet her by chance, I'll feel like I have a shot.

Great episode all around! Loved the Nikita/Amanda stuff and the hostile takeovers of Zetrov and Division.

Hopefully this episode finally puts the Michael's Son storyline to bed. Plus, glad that Carla was killed off last episode.

I wonder what's going to happen to Gogol now that Ari has been kicked out. I doubt Gogol would back Nikita against Division as that would upset her "underdog" status, but it's still a cool thought. Alex in charge of Gogol would be pretty awesome actually.

We need more Berkoff! No more CIA agent potential love interest! More Roan and Guardians! They're badass!

Really hope this show gets another season.

Aren't all the guardians that still work for Percy dead already?

No, at least one is still alive (the Scottish one, I think). He wasn't in this last episode, but was in the one before that, where Percy was trying to kill Division agents and blame it on Golgol. When Nikita goes to the parking Garage to try and stop the assassination of the female Division agent there, the guy who stops her is a guardian. She says as much, plus he was able to pretty easily disable her.

OK, if you're referring to Patrick I'm sorry to inform you that he's dead too. At the end of the "Doublecross" episode Nikita skewered him to the end of a 2" pipe. What you just described above happened several episodes before that, and yes that time Patrick came out on top and got away with Percy and Roan.

If I remembered correctly, there are four Guardians:
  1. Owen, still alive. Turned against Percy and allied with Nikita now.
  2. Patrick. They took his black box but he survived, then went on to work for Percy on various tasks/assignments. Died two episodes ago.
  3. Nameless guardian (Caucasian) that Michael and Owen double-teamed to kill and took his black box in Europe (Amsterdam? can't remember the exact city...)
  4. Nameless guardian (Black) that worked with Patrick on several missions for Percy. He later died at Gates House in the fire fight against Gogol agents.

^There's also a female former Guardian who "retired" and lives a normal life now.

Crap, you're right. I forgot Nikita skewered Patrick at the end of that episode (although we can be 100% certain he's dead).

That being said, I hope there are more Guardians out there because they're great villains. As badass as Nikita and Michael are, it takes two of them to take on one Guardian. Maybe Roan is like a Super Guardian or something like that.
