The goons go in first, guns at the ready. Nikita pops out of the shadows and whacks one of them across the face; he goes down. The disposable agent and Michael continue prowling around, looking for her. Michael commends Nikita on implanting the transmitter in Birkhoff. Nikita's disembodied voice snarkily wonders if Percy canceled Birkhoff. Sadly, no. Michael: "You put him in danger, Nikita; that's not like you." Nikita says he doesn't know her and the disposable agent follows her disembodied voice to a closet. He opens fire through the door. Michael joins him, but all they find in the closet is a speaker. Nikita drops down from the stairwell near Michael and grabs him. She's got a gun to his head. The disposable agent aims at Nikita. Michael elbows Nikita and twists out of her grasp. Nikita shoots the disposable agent in the chest. A fistfight between Nikita and Michael ensues. She punches him a lot until he grabs her arm and twists it. "The more you try to do this, the more you hurt yourself," he says. "You have no idea how much pain I can take," she says and, with a sudden jerking motion, dislocates her own shoulder. This shocks Michael just enough for her to gain the upper hand, knock him back, and escape.
Charm School. Thom is waiting for Alex when she returns to her quarters. He has a gift from her from their trainers - a CD player and some music. There's a sweet, slightly awkward moment between them before Thom starts to wander off. Awkwardly. Alex calls back to him that their "terrorist" got away. Thom consoles her, but he doesn't seem that sad himself. Or maybe his ruddy cheeks just always make him look pleasant.
Percy watches a news broadcast about Henry's arrest and how he was supposedly "in cahoots with the Vargas cartel." Cahoots? I think you need a more sinister word than that when you're talking about drug cartels. The broadcast goes on to mention the video that's been released, so Jill got the job done.
Nikita's in her loft with my future lamp behind her. She types at her computer, sending a message to Alex about how she'll need to find another way to keep Division from suspecting her now that Birkhoff's buggy tooth has been yanked.
