Once upon a time, Prince Erik of Georgia married the evil Princess Kristina in order to unite his divided land. He wanted to do his duty as monarch, but alas! He fell in love with his commoner assistant Leela. Princess Kristina pretended that this bothered her not at all, but secretly she seethed and hatched an assassination plot with mercenaries from a foreign land. Little did she know that a brave-hearted little urchin named Alex was disguised amongst their ranks. Alex, having been trained by a rogue warrior named Nikita, plotted to move Prince Erik to safety when the mercenaries descended upon an exhibition of the crown jewels. But as is the wont of such plans, things went about as smoothly as horse armor through a dragon's bowels. Like a knight in shining formal wear, Nikita rescued the prince, but he refused to leave without Leela, for he planned to abdicate his throne for her.
A power-hungry young mercenary took over the plot, seeing his chance to capture Nikita and thus please his overlord Percy. Princess Kristina was most displeased. Alex surreptitiously aided Nikita, even as Princess Kristina captured Leela and threatened to kill her. Nikita came to know and admire the prince, although his dedication to love over duty made her bitterly remember someone who once made the opposite choice. Forsooth, that was Michael, once a gallant knight but now corrupted by the overlord Percy. Michael and his black-clad mercenaries descended upon Nikita and the prince. A mighty fight ensued, but Nikita emerged victorious! Reunited with Leela, Prince Erik rededicated himself to the throne, having learned from the rogue warrior that running wasn't the answer.
As Alex and Nikita sipped almond milk from their celebratory goblets, Michael began to scry that his prize pupil and arch enemy were conspiring together. Alack! Yea verily! And so on! Stay tuned for the full weecap.
After the increasingly awkward intro, we join Alex in a Charm School training room. She's rehearsing a mission with a small group of other agents. As she describes their plan, the scene is intercut with shots of Nikita at the "Thorburg Cultural Center," scoping out the guards and other security measures that Alex is detailing. The plan is to hit the center during an exhibition of Georgian crown jewels and take down their target just as he takes the podium. The team leader, played by Brendan Fehr, seems overly confident of how easily and quickly they'll complete their mission. The universe laughs at him.
Later, Alex and Nikita are at the Loft of Fabulousness. Time to get through an expository chunk: Division's target is Prince Erik of Georgia, Alex and her team will be posing as Georgian armed forces, Nikita thinks someone wants it to look like the President of Georgia is behind the job. Alex thinks it's a "good way to start a coup," but I prefer a "yo mama" joke contest. "Yo mama so fat, people think she's the Caucasus Mountains every time she bends over!" Alex and Nikita watch some fluff TV interview of Prince Erik and his wife Princess Kristina. Kristina says both she and her husband come from royal families with claims to the throne. Marrying has united both their peoples. Nikita's impressed that Alex got such a profile op for her first mission: "Michael must really believe in you." Alex says Michael has nothing to do with this one, seeing as how he hates Percy's missions-for-hire. Aren't those, like, 99% of what Division does? Plus, it doesn't seem like Percy would just let him sit them out. But this time, at least he has the excuse of working on Division's security after Nikita's breach. Nikita is thoughtful for a while. "Has he asked about me?" she asks. "In an operational context, that is." No, but he has been seen doodling your name in his Trapper Keeper. Alex is curious about Nikita's history with Michael, but Nikita, embarrassed by her momentary lapse, wants them to focus on the mission. She needs a copy of all the mission intel.
Alex heads to Division's ops room with a flash drive. That won't be suspicious at all. Indeed, a nerd drone (Birkhoff is on leave) immediately confronts her. She lies, badly, that she just wanted to review the plans for the mission and the drone miraculously believes her. He sends the files to her phone. On her way out, she runs into Michael. They chitchat about his "Nikita-proof" security measures. He says, "She has a way of corrupting systems from the inside." Ooh, meaningful. He looks sad and angry.
