  • Very emotional and psychological episode, where Nikita has a decision to make, not realizing the decision will be made over her.

  • Quotes (6)

    • Nikita: (trying to make her decision about Karyn) How did you make your decision? What were you looking for? Was there some kind of checklist, seven out of ten I live, anything less than that I die? Or was it intuition, gut feeling? Michael: I don't believe in intuition. Your scores were high, you excelled in all areas, it wasn't a very difficult decision. Nikita: So why did Operations resist? Michael: (surprised that she knows) Who told you that? Nikita: Intuition.

    • Madeline: (saying that Karyn's fate wasn't Nikita's choice) An operative's resolve and judgment is as important as her tactical skills. We knew Karyn would be a problem. We wanted to see if you would come to the same conclusion. Nikita: If I hadn't? Operations: (smiling) Then we would have had two problems.

    • Nikita: (when Karyn balks during a mission) Do you want to live?! Answer the question, do you want to live?! Then walk in and do what you gotta do!

    • Karyn: (after Walter comes on to her) I hate to be rude. Nikita: It's technically impossible to be rude to that man. Karyn: I just want the people here to like me. Nikita: Why?

    • Michael: What is your question? Nikita: I need to know if your admiration for her is purely professional. Michael: I thought you would know me better then that. Nikita: That is funny Michael, because I don't know you at all.

    • Karyn is actually much closer in appearance and history to the original Nikita from the French movie. Like that Nikita, she was arrested while robbing a pharmacy for drugs, and killed an someone in the process.

    • Music Used in This Episode "Broken Man" - SIANspheric (when Nikita thinks about Brian's death)

    • Guest star Felicity Waterman originally auditioned for the role of Nikita and was one of the last two actresses considered for the part.
