  • Episode Description
  • The unbelievable happens- Nikita is called before Operations and Madeline and is given fantastic news, she's free! As part of a "pilot program," Nikita is granted her freedom and a normal life, as long as she never contacts anyone from Section again, and as long as she agrees to be regularly evaluated. Nikita is skeptical at first, but after 6 weeks on "the outside," she starts to believe that maybe this is for real. Sure enough, George from Oversight shows up with the strings. In exchange for her freedom, Nikita must do one thing- return to Section One to kill Operations, the man whom George claims killed Nikita's father. Will Nikita do it?moreless

  • Quotes (7)

    • Madeline: (as Nikita prepares to shoot Operations) He's your guardian angel, Nikita. He's your father.

    • Nikita: This place, you think you hate it. Then you get used to it. Spend enough time here, you depend on it. Birkoff: We were depending on you.

    • Madeline: Don't let this distract you. Maybe that's what George wants. Operations: What he wants is a war. Madeline: Are you prepared to fight? Operations: To the death.

    • Henri: What are you afraid of, Nikita? Nikita: What do you think I'm afraid of?! Henri: You're waiting for the other shoe to drop. Well, I'm afraid you'll grow old waiting. This is your life, now.

    • George: Operations' drive is what brought you to Section. Nikita: I don't understand. George: What do you know about your father? Nikita: My father died when I was very young. George: How? Nikita: I don't know. He was very sick. George: He belonged to Section. He was recruited around the same time as Operations came in. The two of them were always competitive. Your father was clearly the rising star and Operations knew it. Nikita: He killed my father?! George: Yes. And when your mother started asking questions, he introduced her to drugs and destroyed her life. You were his trophy, Nikita. He recruited you to prove his strength. His willingness to do whatever was necessary.
