Time for another flashback: Nikita finds Alex huddled under a bridge as the rain falls around them. She tosses Alex an envelope. "Leave me alone," Alex says. Nikita acquiesces and walks a few steps away. Alex looks in the envelope; it's full of money and a fake ID. She calls Nikita back, confused. Nikita tells Alex again about the night she rescued her. Alex bitterly remembers what happened afterwards, being sold to sex traffickers by a family friend. Nikita swears she had nothing to do with that. "Once I escaped from Division," she says, "I told myself if I could find you, see if you were okay, then I would have done one good thing in my life." Her voice breaks with emotion. She just wanted Alex to know the truth. She walks away while Alex watches, wide-eyed.
In the present, Alex is running through the woods. Birkhoff activates her tracker and finds her headed toward a truck stop. "Prep a team immediately," Percy says. Michael says he'll handle it himself.
In the Loft of Fabulousness, Nikita is giving Owen a little injection of morphine, careful not to give him too much. He looks at her for a long time then tells her where he hid the black box. He wants her to go get it and take down Percy. "I'm going to stay here till you're better," she says. "And then we're gonna go get it together." "I'd like that," Owen says, "but I don't think it was meant to be." Damn, that sheet is slipping kind of low. He's saying something about how he was an in-house cleaner. He calls himself a "reaper," someone who cancelled other agents and the people they'd fallen in love with. Nikita listens with growing realization of what he's confessing to her, shaking her head, but unable to not come to any other conclusion. "How?" she whispers. "It was quick," he says. "He didn't feel a thing." Nikita breaks down crying. Owen says he realized he was the one who killed Daniel from how Nikita described the scene. Nikita wants to know if Michael knew, but Percy gave Owen his orders directly. Nikita either is numb or Maggie Q is finished acting for this scene.
Alex runs to the truck stop and calls Nikita on a pay phone. Nikita reluctantly turns away from Owen to answer. Alex explains the situation to her. It sounds like a test Division once put Nikita through. Nikita promises to get her and changes outfits for some reason, while Owen does the gentlemanly thing by averting his eyes. She picks out a gun. "Do it," he says. "That's why I told you where I hid the box; you don't need me anymore." She gives him an icy look and leaves without shooting him, much to his surprise.
