I like the way that this show is willing to kill off characters. They trick you into thinking that a character is going to be around for awhile; and then, bang, they're dead.
I thought that Jaden was going to be around for a long while; as a thorn in Alex's side. I mean, she just got a promotion to field agent. As surprised as I was, I'm also glad that Jaden is dead. She was just too suspicious of Alex, and liked to tell everyone about her suspicions. I didn't like the casual way that she suggests getting rid of Nathan. Jaden had a very casual disregard for human life. Good riddance.
Nathan sure is an idiot. His girlfriend tells him that she is working for a secret group of assassins. So as soon as he sees one of Alex's co-workers, he sarcastically remarks that she must be another assassin.
What a moron. But he did redeem himself by killing Jaden, to save Alex.
I loved the scene with Alex and Amanda. When Amanda said she had just one more thing to say, I thought that it was going to be some question or piece of evidence that Alex would just barely be able to explain away. I didn't think that she would actually get caught. That was a neat surprise. I loved the way Amanda kicked or punched (can't remember which) Alex into the wall, like she was some weakling.
I like the way that this show is willing to shake things up. Lesser shows would milk plot lines out far several seasons. In one season, we've had a lot of pretty big advancements in the plot. Alex graduates to field agent, only to end up getting exposed as a traitor. Michael flips to Nikita's side. And they've recovered or destroyed half of the black boxes. That's a lot for just one season. I really hope that Nikita gets renewed. I'd like to see what Percy's evil plans for the US government are.
