OK, now we're back to "Josephine." Voss wonders why all his suppliers started getting arrested after Interpol took Josephine. I said earlier he was attractive, but his hair is kind of horrible. Also, his shirt is bright purple. It's all kind of killing his look. Anyway, Nikita, keeping up the ruse, admits she came here to find him. She knows about the weapon and the attack he's planning. "I also know you're working with Gogol." She tells him she saw them downstairs. Voss freaks out. Right on cue, a big blond thug busts into the room, gun blazing. Nikita pounces on him and a brutal fight ensues. Voss sneaks up behind the thug but the thug bats him around like a pesky fly. Nikita wraps a small glass globe in a napkin and proceeds to beat the living shit out of the thug. My favorite bits are whenever Nikita is creative like that, using whatever she finds on hand. He falls to the ground, unconscious. Nikita grabs a gun and aims it at Voss, who's lying on the floor like a wuss. "You certainly don't fight like a banker," he says. "You definitely do," she snarks. Hee. He tries to assure her he's not working with Gogol and he's not planning an attack. Gogol is there to stop him from defecting. He has their weapon and he's turning himself in to U.S. authorities. He tells her he tried to do it in Berlin but his contact was murdered. The pieces start falling into place for Nikita. The weapon, he says, is a dirty bomb. Gogol hired him to auction it off. He asks for Nikita's help. She looks like she still wants to shoot him, but tears off her wig and asks to see the bomb.
Alex's. Everyone sits down to eat - including Michael. The conversation turns to Alex and Michael's work. Michael calls it "relationship marketing." He manages to makes it sound like Alex is a prostitute and he's her pimp. Alex listens to the whole thing, growing smaller and smaller inside, because every thing he says is kind of true. Michael gets a call and excuses himself. "It's not what you think," Alex says to Nathan. He doesn't seem judgmental, but the night is pretty much over.
Quebec. Nikita and Voss retrieve the bomb from where he's hidden it in the woods. It looks like a regular suitcase, except inside there are ominous-looking canisters and wiring. It's lined with something to fool the airport X-ray machines. Nikita calls Ryan. He helps her plan a route to a border checkpoint. Time is of the essence: "Gogol is here," she tells him. "The Russian contractors?" he asks. "The Russian Division," she corrects him. Ryan, concerned, tells Nikita to be careful. The scene cuts to Ari and his Gogol goons descending on Voss's hotel room. The blond thug wakes up and tells Ari what happened. "You fought Nikita," Ari says. "It wasn't a fair fight." Heh. Ari thinks out loud, figuring out what Nikita's next move might be. He assigns his men to the border checkpoints and tells them to bring Nikita to him.
