What’s new this weekend:
Nikita (The CW, tonight) Fall Finale: In the last episode until January, Alex finally makes her move against the Russians who had her family killed—if she can so easily beat the shit out of a roomful of goons, how come she can never even muss Nikita’s hair? Meanwhile, back in 'Merica, Nik has to enlist black-box help from Owen because Michael’s still on his emo vacation, and pissed-off Amanda drops the hammer on Percy. Needless to say, not everyone’s issues are getting worked out tonight.
Supernatural (The CW, tonight) Fall Finale: Also out until January, Supernatural signs off for 2011 with a Bobby-centric episode … because that’s what the girls want, less Sam and Dean and more grizzled old dude.
