Birkhoff tells Nikita he is not really Birkhoff, but Lionel Peller. He faked his death when he was young, but knows that his father, Ronald Peller, was the leak at the NSA. Of course, the Peller at the NSA is a double, but Amanda has the real Peller. That means Nikita can't kill the double, because that would lead to the real Peller's demise.
Nikita and Birkhoff talk to the fake Peller, but since he doesn't recognize Birkhoff they deduce he is a double. While the answers are provided by the real Peller, Birkhoff sends messages to his father who is on the other side. When Amanda realizes Birkhoff is Peller's third child, she orders the double to take out Birkhoff. Nikita shoots the double to save Birkhoff's life, thereby sealing the real Ronald Peller's fate.
But in "Pay-Off", the team learns otherwise: Amanda kept Peller alive to crack Shadownet.
Speaking of which, Jones offers Nikita and the team a deal: fake their deaths and start all over again. Of course, Nikita doesn't accept this offer but instead presents a counteroffer: stop the operation. Jones tells Amanda that if that is Nikita's price, she will get it.
In HQ, Birkhoff discovers a well-known face amongst the Pakistani: Ramon, the terrorist Percy paralyzed all the way from season 2. Thanks to The Shop, he walks again. Nikita and Michael run to stop a missile that is set to be fired on US ships. While Nikita follows the truck, Michael runs into Ramon, who says that Nikita paid the price for his hand. Michael eventually kills him whilst Nikita stops the truck. All seems safe for now.
However, it is revealed that the Amanda in MDK was really a double and the real Amanda is still alive and well, working together with Jones. They paid Nikita's price to get her out, so they can continue their operation.
To be honest, I didn't expect Amanda to be a double. I suspected it for a brief time, but when the missile destroyed the building I really thought Amanda died. However, we still have two episodes left so I guess they can't kill off the main villain yet.
What did you think of these episodes? Were you surprised Amanda is still alive? Are you exicted for the show's final two episodes? Here is the promo for next week:
