The penultimate episode of Nikita offers us the calm before the storm, at least until harsh reality cracks the illusion of victory and safety Nikita (Maggie Q) and her team believe they have won. We begin with Nikita, Michael (Shane West), Ryan (Noah Bean), Sonya (Lyndie Greenwood), and Birkhoff (Aaron Stanford) all living in suburban homes on a Washington military base. In a single montage “Bubble” offers each of their separate testimony over the dark history of Division and the roads that have led them to this point which leads to Nikita becoming the hero of the story Washington desperately needs to present to frame the story and end the national nightmare.

Hitting the halfway point of the show’s final six-episode Fourth Season, “Step-Up” focuses on Birkhoff‘s (Aaron Stanford) suspicious behavior and the trouble Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) runs into in India after Amanda‘s (Melinda Clarke) manipulations make it appear as if she is privately funding Nikita’s terrorist network. Although Ryan‘s (Noah Bean) suspicions put everyone on edge it turns out Birkhoff isn’t a mole for Amanda but has hidden the likely target of Ronald Peller (Judd Nelson) who he believes has been swapped out with one of Amanda’s doubles. Fearing exposing the fake will endanger the real Peller, Birkhoff didn’t want to put his father in any more danger.
