Nikita Interview : Maggie Q Interview - Comic-Con 2013

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlaWCX50aKY


I caught this interview live earlier today. Pretty good interview with Maggie Q. She is already making me miss the show. It just sucks that we are only getting 6 episodes to wrap up the series, but I'm supremely grateful to even be getting this 6. The CW could have just said "f*ck it and screw the fans" and not giving the writers and actors a proper send off to wrap up all the loose ends for the series' arc and of course us fans. I'm just hoping that the series can be revived with a movie series down the road.

Wanted



My original intent was to hold off on watching Season 4 until all the episodes were up so that I could do a binge marathon. But, it's Nikita and I have no patience apparently. I've waited a long time for this season to arrive. I managed to hold off for 3 episodes before I caved in. Wanted was a great episode to jump back into the series. I just wished they did a "...previously on Nikita" update because it took a few minutes of trying to piece together and remember some of the vital plot points of the Season 3 Finale. This episode picks up 100 days after last seasons epic episode that saw POTUS blowing her own brains out.

Naturally Nikita would be in hiding and that the entire world would after her with a $30 Million bounty on her head. Divsion obviously is no more. So the rest of the gang is scattered as well, but still doing what they always use to do. Tracking and running ops. With Nikita revealing her whereabouts for the first time since being on the run, that gives the gang the chance to help and retrieve Nikita. Only one problem....Amanda. She is one step ahead and thwarts a huge ally. I thought the Newscaster Guy was going to be the one that would dig up he truth and exonerate Nikita. Nope. Blown to bits and the one that planted the bomb was the head of the FBI. I suspected from the get go that he was working for Amanda. I was right. Fantastic episode.

Dead or Alive



The series has always felt more long an extended movie than a typical show on broadcast TV. Sure, they also have their stand alone episodes before each new arc. But given that this is the final batch of episodes used to tie up all the loose ends, it has taken on an even more epic feel to it. I'm only 2 episodes in and already I'm loving where they are taking this. It definitely feels like a big budget film with how it transitition from episode 1 to that of episode 2 and my guess it will continue down this path until the finale. They don't have the luxury of stand alone episode with so many loose ends. This episode as already mentioned was epic in Nikita and company going head to head with Amanda. It's a chess game and one one side gets the upper hand, the other side comes up with an even bigger play.

I liked how Matthew Graham (Alex Carter) played a very big part in this episode. Wasn't sure what they were going to do with his character and based on the previous episode, I figured he would have minor role. Nope. It was pretty big in moving the plot along and sets up with will play out over the next few episodes. It's nice to see Alex Carter in something other than CSI. Too bad his run on Nikita was short-lived though. Nice to see Owen working with Alex. But that too went up in smoke once she was captured, leaving him and Sonya on the run. Not sure if he set Alex up so that he could separate the two and have Sonya to himself to decrypt that magic wand scanner or whatever the hell it is.

Set-Up




Fantastic episode that dives into Birkhoff's background where we learn that his name is in fact an alias and that his father plays a big part in 'The Shop' and the thorn that has been pricking Nikita and the gang all along. I thought it was a good choice to have Judd Nelson playing his father. Curious to see how this plays out now that his doppelganger has been silenced and if Birkkhoff will have his reunion with him. I loved watching them communicate with each other by way of hidden codes on the computer. Very cool. As for Owen/Sam, I'm still not convinced that he is back to being 'good'. There is still some ulterior motive at work and I fully expect him to try and back-stab everyone again.

Pay-Off



Hahaha. They almost got me......but not quite. Pretty sneaky on their part. At first when Nikita managed to location Amanda's location and come face to face with her, I was immediately asking myself why are they going there with 2 episodes left? And then when Nikita orders an air strike on the compound, blowing it up....along with Amanda, I of course blurted out "what the f*ck". But as soon as I said that, I had a smirk on my face when I figured out that the Amanda that got blown to bits was a double....a fake. I'm just happy I figured it out before the big reveal at the end of the episode. Nicely played. Only two episodes left.  :'(

Damn, this episode was goooooood. With Nikita and the gang under protection of the United States (perks of rescuing the real POTUS and bringing her back home), Congress sets about making her a Hero to the American public. This was all nice and whatnot, but there was a sense of impending doom. In the back of my mind, I knew that someone on the team was going to have to die in order to prove that Amanda was still alive. Unfortunately, the sword fell on Ryan, who was captured by Amanda. Somehow he gets the drop on her and manages to "escape", only to get trapped in a room with no "exit".....save for one. I knew what the outcome was going to be, that he would throw himself out of a window 5 stories high. His goal was to kill himself to keep Amanda from creating a clone of Ryan to use against Nikita. Miraculously he survived the fall. He lived long enough to whisper everything he has learned into the ear of Nikita.

That sets up what's coming. Nikita and company assemble for one last mission: to kill Amanda. NOW it's personal and I'm anxiously awaiting the Series Finale. Gonna watch it now, as soon as I'm done typing this................

Obviously the first thing that came into my mind during the first episode of this 'Remake' of La Femme Nikita was "how will THIS one end". And over the course of the next 4 seasons, that has always remind front and centered in my head. And ya know what, I didn't have a clue how they would wrap up this incredible ride. This has been one of the most consistently enjoyable series for me to watch in the last 4 years. I just wish it could and would have gone on longer.

As for the Series Finale, I am very happy how it was all tied together. I kinda suspected (but wasn't entirely sure) that the gang turning on Nikita was nothing more than a ruse to trick Amanda and lure her in for the trap. When it was revealed to be just that, there was a smug look on my face as I nodded in agreement. Game. Set. Match. I even like the fact that Nikita chose not to kill her too. How fitting was it that she would be locked away.....in the 'basement' at the very end. Plus, it does leave it open for a theatrical film down the road should they ever decide to go there.

I really enjoyed the epilogue telling us that Alex and Owen were working together (he as her bodyguard and of course dating as well), Birkhoff releasing information to the general public (ala Edward Snowden) and Nikita and Michael eloping and on their honeymoon in Ecuador. But then, they are still fighting the good fight as they chase off after a guerilla soldier who is forcing little kids to take up arms. I like that there is always another job to take care of for those two.
