Review - Nikita Season 1 Episode 5 The Guardian

So there are these black boxes which contain the nations secrets and are protected by "guardians?" OK... let's just say it's plausible and move on.

"The Guardian" puts Percy directly in Nikita's line of fire, but when the opportunity arises for Percy to be taken out, Nikita stops the guardian, Owen, because she needs to destroy all the black boxes. Well, if that's the case, we're in for a long, long journey. There could be hundreds of boxes and hundreds of guardians for all we know and then some boxes which only Percy knows about.

Alex gets into hot water back at Division after breaking in to Percy's office right before Michael and Birkhoff break in themselves. She's able to transmit to Nikita all the information and get away without anyone noticing--except Thom. The current triangle thing going on between Alex, Jaden, and Thom is pretty laughable compared to the rest of the show. It's like writers decided they had to put in the usual CW tropes within an action show.

Score: 8.6/10
