30,000 feet in the air. Nikita has decided to tell Fletcher everything about Division after he says he joined the CIA when his brother was killed in Afghanistan. He just seems trustworthy and heroic, I guess. Like a trustworthy and heroic little kitten. She also tells him that if Division is threatened, Percy will release all its dirty little secrets, creating global chaos. She asks him to help her find Division's moles in the government. Fletcher is suspicious, but Nikita says she wants to take down Division to help pay back the sins she committed while working for them. Owen gives Fletcher the thumb drive in exchange for helping them get off the plane. This involves calling Gil over when Owen fakes a seizure. Owen handily grabs Gil's gun and turns it on the soldiers. He unlocks his and Nikita's chains, then grabs them each a parachute. Heh. You can totally see Owen's butt crack when he bends over to raise the hatch. Before they jump, Nikita shouts "You should have listened to me!" at Fletcher, so that he doesn't look complicit in their escape.
Percy and Michael are in Ops, watching a live news report as Fletcher is taken into custody. "I should have blown that plane out of the sky when I had the chance," Percy says. "If you did that, we'd have no hope of finding the black box," Michael explains for us. Now Michael worries about what Fletcher will do. Percy already has a plan.
In the Loft of Fabulousness, Nikita gets a message from Alex about the London black box. She also messages, "I saw what Percy is capable of." To illustrate the point, we get a cutaway to John at the CIA, slumped forward on his desk, as Roan places an open bottle of bills near his cold, dead hand. A news report names him as the one who tried to frame Fletcher for the assassination.
To wrap things up, Nikita goes for another swim in Newark. Owen's waiting at the edge of the pool when she surfaces. "This is me, standing in the light," he says. Ooh, meaningful. Owen makes plans to go to London to look for the black box guardian while Nikita stays behind to help Alex. He gives her his black box, which Nikita promptly shoots into many itty bitty pieces. "One down, six to go," she says. What's stopping Percy from making more of those things? Best not to think too hard, methinks. Owen turns to go, then stops. "You were wrong back there at the camp," he says. "About not going in quiet?" she asks. He flashes her a winning smile: "About not being a hero." And that's how we go out this week. Le sigh!
