Despite what last week promised, ‘Save Henry’ was less of a major conclusion, and a lot more character driven than I thought it would be. I think Regina’s feelings for Henry were always a bit of a mystery, even though we saw how strongly she felt about him over the course of the series. ‘Save Henry’ was exactly what we needed to understand where those feelings came from, and how they made her throw her evil past behind her and start again for her son.

Tonight was party time at Wertham Community Centre, and what a disaster it turned out to be. It was always going to be a risky proposition, packing the place full of strangers with superpowers, but it was Rudy introducing the power-reversing ecstasy which really tipped it into the chaotic. Tim got iced, Finn now knows about Jess and Rudy, Stuart and Greg danced up a storm, Jess is (or soon will be) pregnant, and Mark the tortoise became a real boy... right before getting turned inside out. Colonel Saunders would've been proud.

So maybe I'm in the minority, but I kind of like Nikita more when they don't do heavy action. I'm not entirely sure when spy-centric shows and movies drifted into nonsensical action, but a good thriller should have smarts. This episode felt smarter than the premiere, which for me was a step in the right direction.
A TV couple discovers a baby and has to take care of it for a day or so until its parents are found. It’s been done, a lot. Normally, this cliché of a show is written for laughs and for giving the viewers a chance to see what life will be like for the couple long after the show has faded into memory. To its credit, Castle used this trope to explore the idea of parenthood. It raised this episode from the usual, but just barely.
Athena’s plan seems to be falling perfectly in place for the finale. Will the Beauchamps be able to get a step ahead? Even when the ladies have the pieces right in front of them, they can’t seem to put the puzzle together.
