Friday! New Year's Eve tomorrow! Can't wait.
And next Friday, remember, Nikita returns to the CW with new episodes. (We'll have to wait online eight days after it airs before we can stream it! :().
As promised, I'm discussing the cliff hanger "Sanctuary" tonight -- the last new episode of Nikita aired this year. That way we should all be ready for next Friday's new episode.
In this episode, Nikita searches for another black box. But she has to find the guardian to find him. Devon Sawa returns in his recurring role of Eliot and teams up with Nikita on this mission. They also use the Russian spy agency since Seymour's still recovering from Amanda's catching him and torturing him.
Michael remains off with his child in London.
Nikita goes up against the guardian of the box, a doctor working for division and the Russian spy agency in a massive shoot-out.
Nikita and the guardian end up arrested and carted off by the police who place them in the back of a van to transport them to the police station. Of course, the van's attacked. And Nikita may be taken out . . . but Michael shows up.
With Nikita, Michael and Eliott, they're able to take on the Russian spy agency and its firepower and make it off alive.
Then they have to figure out how to get back the box from the Russians and how to open it.
Meanwhile Percy wants out of prison and back in charge of division. Amanda doesn't realize it, but Percy has a plan.
Alex is in Russia and goes to the house to kill the man in charge of ordering the hit on her father. She enters her old house prepared to kill him only to discover her mother.
Which most likely means that her mother was in on the plot and is now married to the killer. We'll have to wait for the new episode Friday to find out if that's true.
And that's really the episode. Will Nikita be able to get this black box and will they be able to open it?
We'll have to wait until Friday next.
