Did anyone catch this last night, I had forgotten what happened at the end of season 1 seeing as its been a year since they last showed it.

The episode was really good, fast paced and eased you back into the story, looking forward to next Friday now

I had to watch the first season again, just to remind myself.

Really enjoyed it, Berkoff was classic!

I watched it. Not a classic episode, perhaps because it had quite a bit of exposition that seemed for the sake of viewers who forgot what was going on. Also, the characters seem a bit muddled about their motivation. Alex turning on Nikita lacks conviction, and to have her using Amanda to get revenge on whoever killed her father seems like a repeat of Michael's situation in the first series. Nikita has her black box but doesn't know what to do with it. Berkoff is also muddled, but that's par for the course.

If this is to be the main thread, can we put "no spoilers" in the title? I'm sure a lot of people watched at US pace.

So glad Nikita is back! Haven't been watching anything regularly since this and Ringer. Had a catch up on season 1 to remind myself.

Thought the first episode was a good opener and liked the fight scene between Nikita and Alex. I didn't think this episode was as 'dark' (if that's the write word to use) as previously seen in season 1. How many epidoes does season 2 have?

Great start, but Berkoff's Drone Plane's, were a bit OTT.

Nikita/Alex fight, was a shock, and Percy in his 'Hannibal Lecter' style cage.....very funny.

Would have liked more action with the Prison Break...it was way to easy.

And there's 23 episodes this season.

Great start to season 2. Have to say I really hope they end the Alex story arc this season. I don't want Nikita to be saddled with that guilt for much longer.

I also hope there are some stand alone episodes free of Division.

Well Nikita did kill her father and witheld this (and other) informatin from her. Seems ok to me.
As for her story mirroring Michael's that's interesting as we can see how she is dragged in to the organisation. We didn't see that much of how Michael started out, there were some flashbacks but these were glimpses.

I didn't think you would tbh. I just didn't want the arguements that ruin threads because people have watched at US pace. (see Game Of Thrones).

I just wonder how tempting the season 2 boxset will be? Apparently it's out the 17th of September 10 episodes from the end on Sky Living.

I loved the fight between Nikita and Alex, the shot in the leg was overkill lol didnt expect that especially after Nikita had just broken her arm

Enjoyed this weeks too.

Nikita is assembling her own unit nicely, although I'm not suprised by Owen tho.

I much preferred this episode. I'm getting a strong sense of every character having their own agenda.

Great episode this week, with the P-9 Sleepers....even with Alex and her Walking Stick, very funny.

But what is Owen up too.

And is Berkhoff going to come to their rescue, every week.

I was sorry Berkhoff didn't get laid. Still, it seems he will become a signed-up member of the team, and provide remote hacking support more or less as he did before. Everyone rescues everyone else on a regular basis.

Can only say that things will get clearer along the way, but that doesnīt mean that no alliances will be switched during the season (itīs a spy show, after all ).

As for Berkoff, he will get an interesting arc.

I thought ep3 was excellent. A step up from the previous two. I liked the fun at the start with the journalist, the black woman in Division (especially when Amanda talked about how things were better now a woman was in charge, and we had a brief reaction moment from her), and the ending. So Nikita goes in alone, then Michael has to rescue her, then she chases the bad guy, them has to go back and rescue him. Like I said, everyone rescues everyone else on a regular basis.

This is now the best show in its class currently broadcasting. (Admittedly there's not a lot of competition at the moment.)

Great episode...but why didn't Michael check for a way out.
Ramon was a good villain...but I felt Alex's side of the story, was much better, with her 'past' in her sights, then firing.

And Sonia, the new Birkhoff...

Love it when there's a M/Bike, just ready for Nikita....

I will ask for a "NO SPOILERS" to be added to the thread title.
