Nikita's back at her loft, trying to get in touch with Alex via computer. While she waits, she remembers the past. Alex is out of the sauna and sitting on a cot when Nikita walks in, offering her some new clothes. Alex sulks and wants to know what Nikita plans to do with her. Nikita talks about their mutual experiences with drugs and how she just wants to help her. She sees in Alex a chance to redeem herself for crimes she committed while high. Alex thinks Nikita's been following her, but Nikita denies it. She promises Alex her freedom as soon as she's back to full health. Alex sulks some more. In the present day, Nikita still hasn't gotten hold of her protégé.
Charm School. Lab. Birkhoff is examining the round they found in one of the Interlopers. It's blah blah blah something tungsten. Birkhoff gets to work analyzing it to find a black market dealer's chemical signature. "I'll run it through Shadownet," he says, referring to the software of his own creation. Michael teases him about the name a bit, like the playful little otter that he is. Amanda saunters in at this point, wearing rubber gloves. She has bad news about the interlopers: "They know about the nuclear material." In better news, Shadownet found a match for the round.
Michael pays a visit to Trevor's elegant little black market shop. Trevor's face pays a visit to a table. Michael wants Nikita's info, but Trevor plays dumb. Naturally, Nikita chooses this moment to call his cell phone. When Trevor answers, she asks for Michael. She commends him for tracking the round so quickly. They chitchat about the interlopers for a bit. Nikita's cool with them until Michael tells her they're mercenaries after Dadich's nuclear material. Michael says Dadich has hidden a GPS device that shows the uranium's location. It's just a matter of time before the mercs get it. Michael's tone is accusatory, so Nikita reminds him it's Division's fault for "getting in bed" with Dadich in the first place. Kinky. And crowded. Nikita thinks Percy will go down for this, but Michael mentions again all the "little black boxes" of dirty info Percy has. "You can quit or you can die, but you can't stop Division," Michael tells her. "No one can." He looks a bit saddened by that.
