With only 6 episodes in the season, it was very difficult to do what they did; wrap up everything with a satisfying conclusion but somehow, they did. Season 4 was initially not meant to happen but due to the hardcore fan base and the petitions, CW decided to give Nikita an ending and I'm so glad they did. The show's been going strong for 3 years now and even though the ratings haven't been all that great, I still believe it is THE most under-appreciated show that was on television. And they even turfed it to a friday night or 'dead show night. Non-stop action, drama, love triangles, plot twists every turn; Nikita was a show that was afraid to take risk by killing off characters and showing real character development for the female protagonist. Another reason why it's one of my favourite shows is the fact that it is a strong female protagonist. Nowadays, they put female leads in such roles that they end up just basing a story around a guy or their love life and even if they do try to make them strong, for example, Olivia Pope in scandal, it's all generic. Nikita was not only a very capable physical character, but her issues about abandonment, trust, love and friendship just made it so good every episode. She was honestly one of the most humanistic characters I've ever seen on television. There was no dull moment for this entire series, even though this review is just for season 4. Nothing ever felt tacky or cheesy; McG is just a fantastic director and the storyline was down-right amazing. And that conclusion? Sigh. Just amazingly satisfying in every way. I wish more people had watched this show so that there could have been more seasons, but at the same time, its important to know when a show has run its course. And what a run it was. Thanks for the good memories Nikita. The last thing they heard was in fact, your name. 9.5/10
