Nikita, Ep 3.22: “Til Death Do Us Part” closes out the season with an unexpected death and a major demolition

This week’s episode explores the fallout from the Division coup and Nikita’s capture, delivering another shocking episode that gives the audience a glimpse into what makes Amanda tick, and leaves Division irrevocably changed.
