Campus. Nikita works her mental mojo and exposits a bunch of stuff, the upshot of which is that the mystery source is an ambitious hiker and college student. They decide to hit the sporting goods stores in the area.
Charm School. Jaden calls over Michael. "Alex here seems to have it all figured out," she says, clearly hoping Alex will crash and burn. But Alex details their findings, including two movie ticket stubs in Blacksburg, Virginia. Alex is sure that's where the terrorist and munitions expert met, since driving all that way to see an Elmo movie is "way weird." Michael leads Alex to the ops room, where she tells Birkhoff about her findings. Michael tells him to check the movie theater for night vision cameras. That's... convenient. At this point, Alex realizes the work she just did was for an active mission and not just a training exercise. Oops. The source, one doomed Benjamin Prentiss, even used his credit card to buy popcorn. Michael allows Alex to stay in the ops room as a reward. Birkhoff brags about his network some more and doesn't notice when Alex moves his can of Red Bull closer to his hand.
Nikita and Jill show up on Benjy's doorstop. Naturally, he's none too pleased to see them and starts flailing and begging for his life. Nikita tackles him and tells him not to be such a wuss. Heh. She advises him to give them the video before the guys from the black helicopters show up. He sweats a bit, but eventually shows them the video. The black ops gather up the coke, douse the scene with fuel and then set it on fire. Nikita tries to upload it to a newspaper, but the wifi is jammed. The phone, too, is cut off when she tries to call the cops to intervene.
Michael and the goons pull up in their SUVs outside. The music starts rocking out so you know a fight scene is about to happen. Wussy Benjamin sees the goons walking up to his house and makes a break for it, shouting, "They're in there!" He gets two bullets in the chest for his efforts. The goons cart off Benjamin's body just as cop cars pull up, sirens blaring. Nikita orders Jill to copy the video onto her flash drive. Michael and the goons get back into their SUV and wait it out. "Where they hell did they come from?" Michael asks. In answer, we cut to the ops room, where Alex is typing something into a computer while a distracted Birkhoff is cleaning Red Bull off his keyboard. Lucky for him, it doesn't fly away. Division has surveillance cameras everywhere but in their own ops room. Birkhoff checks his computer and tells Michael it's just the local cops looking for the reporter.
