Though there was plenty of action in this week's "Nikita," the episode still felt a little akin to the calm before the storm, allowing us all to take a collective breath before delving headfirst into the final three episodes of the season.

Although Season 3's earlier entries were more self-contained, to enable new viewers to jump on board, "Nikita" has been on an unbroken hot streak since "Intersection," raising the stakes and ramping up the action with each new installment.

After two of "Nikita's" strongest episodes to date, it seemed inevitable that "True Believer" would feel a little flat in comparison -- mostly because this week's story was less intrinsically personal than "3.0" and "Innocence" were for our main characters.

"Nikita" is back for a (somewhat miraculous) third season, and though Division has been given a makeover, the show is still the sleek, confident, kick-ass machine we all know and love.
