This episode was a bit of a continuing plot from the last episode two weeks ago. In that episode Nikita captured Division operative Owen and held him in her loft.
This episode showed flashbacks of Nikita and Alex’s relationship. It turned out that The Division was responsible for Alex’s parents’ death and Nikita saved a young Alex from being killed too. So we found out that Nikita didn’t kill Alex’s parents but knew about the operation that did. One year ago Nikita also showed Alex her own grave and said that she “died” five years ago. Alex ran off but Nikita found her. Alex was the one who hatched the plan to get into The Division for revenge.
In present day Nikita was interrogating a shirtless Owen who was handcuffed to a bed in her loft. They got into a fight and he asked for the key. Owen then told Nikita where the black box was and also said that when he got involved with Emily he began questioning The Division. Then Owen revealed that he was involved in the killing of Nikita’s fiance because he was following orders from Percy. He said that the death was quick though and the fiance didn’t feel much.
At The Division Percy called out Michael for being unloyal when Nikita was involved in an operation. Michael said he had no relationship with Nikita. Percy told him that operatives are killed when they don’t follow his orders.
The new recruits had to interrogate a person in order to pass a Division test. Alex had 10 minutes to get names but she failed when the interrogatee started strangling her and Michael had to rescue her. So the recruits got to go on a field trip to practice their sniper skills. On the bus to the site Thom apologized to Alex about kissing her. But the bus got hijacked and the two were bundled off to a secret site. Alex was tied to a chair and the brother of the person she had to interrogate earlier was there asking questions. It turned out to be a Division test. Alex didn’t crack but got away when she shot the man and ran to a truck stop phone booth to call Nikita.
Nikita got the phone call and figured out it was a Division test. Nikita told Owen she had to go. Meanwhile Michael found Alex and told her that he wouldn’t let anything happen to her and he wasn’t going to lose her too.
Back at The Division Percy told Michael that the test was to test his loyalties too and wanted to make sure that Alex wasn’t another Nikita. Michael talked to Alex again and said that The Division will continue to have little tests like the one today but that he meant what he said at the truck stop.
Back at Nikita’s loft, Owen escaped. He left a note that said he went back to Montreal to get the black box and do his own mission.
Next Episode “The Recruit“ One of The Division’s recruits will be a suicide bomber.
