Zahidov wheels Nikita down to the basement. He whips out a knife to finish her off, but she pops out of the cart and kicks his ass quite handily. She grabs his walkie, purposefully breaks the stiletto heels off her shoes, and runs off to do her Nikita thang. Meanwhile, Alex the Division agents, now clad in Georgian army gear and masks, descend on the cultural center. They shoot two guards in the chest (too bad the good guys didn't hatch any plans to save those two poor schmucks) and head for the exhibit, where Prince Erik is just about to take the stage. At the same time, Nikita is pummeling Erik's two guards. She grabs Erik and tells him his life is in danger. As if to illustrate her point, the agents stroll into the exhibit room and paint the ceiling with machine gun fire. Museum-goers scream and take cover. Steven shouts "For the patriots of Georgia!" in Georgian and aims his gun at the stage. Only then does he realize that his intended target isn't there. In plain, unaccented English, he shouts orders for the others to find the prince, thereby blowing whatever little ruse they had going. He heads for the security office, leaving Alex in charge.
Nikita and Erik skulk around other parts of the museum. She skillfully manages not to flash her goodies even with moving in a crouch. She must test these slinky dresses in front of a mirror before putting them in action. Erik is befuddled (about the assassination attempt, not her wardrobe) so Nikita explains that Zahidov and Kristina are responsible. Erik doesn't seem surprised. Their marriage was political in nature, meant to help restore Georgia's constitutional monarchy. He plans to give up his throne. "You don't love her," Nikita realizes. "People in love don't try to kill each other," Erik says. Nikita looks at him and deadpans, "Are you serious?" Heh. He's in love with his assistant Leela, which Kristina knew about and seemed totally fine with. Yeah... not so much. Nikita gives him the walkie and has him warn Leela that Kristina can't be trusted, then tells Leela to give her headset to Alex. Alex is relieved to hear Nikita's voice, but quickly puts on a show for the other agents. "Listen, bitch, I caught you once and I can do it again!" Nikita tells Alex to trip the silent alarm in the security office so the police will come.
