Nikita and Michael met up at a hotel in Uzbekistan. Michael was there to try to assassinate a man named Kasim who had double-crossed him years ago. Nikita was there to help him. In a flashback Michael was a young Navy intelligence worker who got some files from Kasim. Michael had a wife and child but they were blown up in their car by Kasim. Michael was so devastated that he wanted to kill himself, but Percy showed up and stopped him from shooting up a deadly dose of morphine. Michael had worked for The Division ever since and fell for Nikita once she started there too.
Back at The Division Alex had to get some intel on Michael for Nikita. So she returned to the doctor’s office to look in his computer but forgot to close the files and the doctor summoned her back. He was going to blackmail her but she stabbed him with a tranquilizer and thought up a plan. Alex antagonized Jaden so Jaden decided to spy on Alex. However Alex led her to an escape route and took Jaden’s picture in order to blackmail Jaden into helping her. The two went to Amanda and both said that the doctor was trying to take advantage of Alex, Jaden heard it and stabbed the doctor with the tranquilizer. Amanda took the doctor away. Don’t they have security cameras all over that place to corroborate the truth?
Meanwhile in Uzbekistan Nikita was dressed up and slinking around a bar. She distracted a bodyguard of Kasim’s, got his hotel room key and passed it to Michael. Nikita got away and went to see what Michael found. They found out that Kasim was at a farmhouse, so they headed over there. Percy decided to try to kill Nikita and sent over some Division people to do that. This counter-plot got in the way of the Nikita/Michael plan. Michael got captured by Kasim, while Nikita got away. Nikita managed to find Michael and rescued him when Kasim had left. A security guard told them Kasim was headed to the airport. Nikita didn’t want Michael to go to the airport, but he got away from her. But Nikita called airport security to arrest Michael. When he got captured he had just gotten close to Kasim, Michael saw Nikita and cursed her for getting him captured.
Back at The Division Percy gloated that Michael hated Nikita. Back at her loft Nikita was disappointed about what had happened with Michael.
