Nikita (The CW): Repeat. The “Origins” episode from this past season replays, where Nikita learns a few things she didn’t know about the night she was arrested and ultimately ended up at Division.
Common Law (USA Network): Season Finale. Travis and Wes are finally willing to talk about the incident that landed them in therapy. Plays again later. The previous four episodes replay earlier this morning. I’ve come to enjoy this show over the season, even if I still have a couple of problems with it. But, tonight is the best episode of the season, which the season has built to nicely. This type of episode doesn’t really work, unless you have some investment in the characters. Much like last night’s flashback episode of “Suits,” this episode tells two stories, one now and one in the past and works just about as well.
