Nikita 1.08 “Phoenix” Debrief
As promised, here’s the debrief on tonight’s Nikita, entitled “Phoenix”:
Last week’s Nikita episode, “The Recruit,” deviated from the norm to develop an underused component of the series. With that behind us, I wonder if “Phoenix” will feel like a more complete episode as a result.
It sort of picks up from “The Recruit,” as Thom (Ashton Holmes) is the agent on a mission: to eliminate Anna, the mistress of a Senator (Spencer Garrett, who seems to be typecast as a jerk, be it in Cold Case, The Good Guys, Leverage and now this) who’s agreed to keep the money coming to Division as long as they cover up his indiscretions. Ah, that all-important funding we’re always hearing everyone refer to (Nikita in “Pilot” and Percy in “Rough Trade”). It really does all come down to money, doesn’t it?
