And I really would have liked seeing more of Niko. I really enjoyed this storyline. Skipping episodes caused some major continuity errors. A) We went from Niko returning to help a cousin at his trial to him being permanently recalled. (That would help explain why she try to "turn" him, to keep him safe.) B) Kate was asked to turn him, and then in the next epi goons are rushing in to kidnap him. Obviously she didn't convince him in the missing epi.
I hope they put this show on DVD one day. Maybe they'll include the lost epi for die-hard fans.
