'Nikita' Season 1, Episode 19 Recap

Lyndsy Fonseca['Nikita' - 'Girl's Best Friend']

A kiss on the hand may be quite continental, but explosives are a girl's best friend. After a few episodes on the sidelines, Alex was front and center this week, and back to doing what she does best -- kicking some serious ass (the way she wielded two guns at once practically gave me chills, it was such an impactful shot).

I'm glad to see Lyndsy Fonseca getting back to the action, since I find her talents a little wasted on the gooey romantic stuff, no matter how nice Nathan is to look at.

Nikita's best laid plans have a tendency to go awry, so it was no surprise that her scheme to break Alex out of Division hit a speed bump or two -- and let's face it, Alex on the run and safe from Percy and Amanda probably wouldn't make for great television, at least not in season one.
