Nikita meets Ryan in some public but quiet place outdoors. It looks sort of... monument-y. He gives her the deets about Agent Redshirt's death and how he can't get anyone in the CIA interested. He turned to Nikita for help. "The irony is this has nothing to do with Division, but it may have to do with a terrorist attack on U.S. soil." He's been monitoring "cold war substations" at his new drone job and came across chatter about a new weapon. When he mentions Jurgen's name, Nikita looks disturbed. Jurgen is an alias for a German arms dealer named Emil Voss. She had to sleep with him for two weeks as part of a Division op. Ryan is concerned about the danger to the U.S., but sensitive to Nikita's pain. He can't ask her to get involved, nor does he have to, because Nikita is already formulating a plan.
Division. Michael wants to put a survey team on Ryan, but Percy denies his request, saying basically that Ryan's no longer a problem at his new job. Michael reminds him that Ryan and Nikita are working together. Percy sighs. "First Owen, now Ryan... she always was the ultimate honey trap." That sounds kind of... ew. Michael presses his case, but Percy points out in his own subtle way that Michael's been kind of incompetent at catching Nikita. Michael scowls.
Alex's Apartment. As usual, Nathan just happens to be in the hall when Alex returns home. He sees the bags in her arms. "What'd ya get?" he asks. Nosy. She invites him in to see her new MP3 player and he offers to giver her plenty of tunes, seeing as how he's a DJ. He seems kind of square to be a DJ. Maybe he spins at retirement parties. Alex takes a deep breath and invites him over to dinner that night. As Alex goes to put away her haul, the phone rings. She says it's the guy delivering her new stereo, so Nathan answers. It's Michael, who sounds none too pleased. Nathan gives Alex the phone, whispering, "Sounds like Batman." Michael rolls his eyes hilariously. Hee! He was just calling to let her know the new team he asked her to join has been scrubbed. Man, he's really ramped up his scowl. His frown is so hard you could use it as a crowbar.
He flashes back to four years ago. He's getting Nikita ready for a new mission. Amanda recommended her, thinking she was getting too "comfortable" with her cover. Nikita realizes this means that Amanda has told him about Daniel. "Are you seeing him?" Michael asks, sounding hurt and concerned. "I didn't know what else to do," she says helplessly. She asks why he's sending her on this particular mission, but it wasn't his choice. He reminds her how dangerous it is to have relationships with outsiders. It's a warning more than a threat, but she looks pained either way. So does he, for that matter.
