In the present day, Michael leads a gussied-up Alex into Dadich's suite. "So where's the party?" she asks, looking around at the otherwise empty room. Dadich indicates the bedroom. Alex looks back at Michael, whose look of shame tells her everything she needs to know about why she's really there. She puts on a smile and follows Dadich into the bedroom, while Michael watches, looking sick. Alex excuses herself to the bathroom to "freshen up" and takes a phone in with her. Once alone, she dials Nikita. Nikita's on the other line, speaking to a source in French about getting dirt on Division when she gets the call from Alex. Alex gives Nikita all the pertinent details about the mission, including the fact that she's with Dadich right now. Nikita grabs her new gun and hauls ass.
Nikita uses a commercial break to get to a rooftop across from the hotel. She puts her gigantic rifle together while Alex tries bide her time with an increasingly horny Dadich. She goes to the window and parts the curtains, giving Nikita a clear view inside. Dadich puts the moves on Alex. When she resists, he smacks her across the face. He closes the curtains. Nikita attaches a thermographic scope to the rifle, but she still can't quite get a clear shot. She notices a nondescript van speeding into an alley beside the hotel. She uses a monocular to get a look at the new interlopers, dressed in black, but doesn't recognize them. Inside the hotel, Michael is just outside Dadich's bedroom door, listening to the violence within. When he can't take it anymore, he barges in and punches Dadich. Dadich goes down, conveniently pulling the curtains in the process. The interlopers come in, guns blazing. Dadich's security guards are shot. Michael takes one of them on, hand to hand. The blond woman from the angry mob comes in, levels a gun at Dadich and addresses him by name. She orders him to get up. Nikita, back at her rifle, watches and waits for her opportunity. Finally, she shoots the guy who's grappling with Michael. Michael is shocked to see a neat bullet hole in the window. The interlopers grab Dadich and hightail it out of there. Michael goes to the window and sees Nikita running across the rooftop.
Charm School. Alex is in her quarters with Percy and Michael. Percy presses her for details, but she doesn't remember anything. Michael is pissed because Alex clearly wasn't ready. Percy is just pissed in general and goes stomping off in a huff. Percy checks in on one of the captured interlopers. Division's goons haven't been able to get anything out of him except a word that means "vengeance," so Percy orders them to get "the Inquisitor" down there to work on him. Michael comes in to enlighten Percy and the rest of us about how the interlopers are freedom fighters who want to bring Dadich to justice for his war crimes. Percy thinks that's why "bleeding heart" Nikita is involved, but Michael doesn't think she's working with them, since she shot one of them. "She missed," Percy says. "She was targeting you." Heh. Michael seethes, but only succeeds in looking like an adorably huffy baby otter. About this time, the Inquisitor shows up. Unexpectedly, it's Amanda. Nobody expects a sexy Inquisition!
