Episode Summary

After someone breaches Section and breaks into her room, Nikita is more determined than ever to find out the truth about why she was brought into Section. She arranges to get at Mr. Jones personally by having him go out as "Mick Schtoppel" on a mission against an arms dealer with ties to The Collective, by the name of Massima Valenti. Was Operations telling the truth in "Deja Vu All Over Again" when he told Nikita that "Mr. Jones is not what he appears to be...?" Is Nikita making a big mistake in pushing the issue? Meanwhile, Quinn continues to put the "moves" on Operations, but what is she really up to?moreless

  • Mr Jones is not who we think... and... many surprises...

    This episode - again different and special. The way it started.. I was quite shocked - it managed to surprise me with no warning. First the hopes for up for Michael but no - that was someone else.

    We meet Mr Jones again and Nikita tries to build a trap to him to find answers for her questions. We see mr Jones to transform into Mick again. And to be honest - that character is enjoyable. The joy and the carefree world seeing he has. But we will only find out in the end that he is not real mister Jones - what is logical. He afraid guns and real mr Jones would not risked to come so much in public like he did. He is actor, it comes out and he has been acting well. Quinn is up to something else than I thought - she wanted to get to the Tower only to put some bug or something.. what is she really out for?

    And the end.. when Niktia goes to Center to talk with Michelle - mr. Jones secretary - she will only find out that both Micke and Michelle have been replaced. But the man at the beginning of the episode - Nikita saws him, follows him and finds Michelle and ... her father...moreless
  • Good

    Nikita chases down someone who breaks into Section and begins to suspect Quinn of helping the attacker. Quinn convinces Operations that she is more than adequate in replacing Madeline in one area...the Tower.

    Mr Jones/Mick goes with Nikita on a mission to bring in someone with ties to the Collective, but once again things are not as they seem.

    Nikita continues the search for her father and finally manages to track him down. This show is always good when it comes to backstabbing and intrigue and this episode has that in buckets. The only thing this show does better is the love story and that is definatly missing in this one. Still very good and far superior to several S4 episodes.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: Canadian rock singer Alannah Myles plays Massima Valenti in this episode. Her name is misspelled in the credits, however, as "Allanah Myles".

    • The enemy is yet again The Collective.

    • Nitpick: Nikita putting the last tracker on her bullet and firing it off should not have worked. The limo was visible from the road, and one of the vehicles should have stopped to see if there was any sign of Jones, if the driver knew anything, or even just to look for bodies.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Michelle: (at the real Mr Jones' house) Hello, Nikita. We've been expecting you.

    • Nikita: I hope she's gonna lead me to my father. I'm just... nervous.
      Walter: Why?
      Nikita: I'm finally gonna open the door and I'll know what's behind it.
      Walter: Truth will set you free.
      Nikita: Not in this place.

    • Quinn: I'd like you to feel you can count on me... for whatever you need.
      Operations: (cynically amused by her pass at him) What do you think... go to bed with me, wake up with Madeline's job?
      Quinn: Can't I be attracted to you without having an ulterior motive?
      Operations: You could. But you're not. Yes, Madeline and I spent time occasionally in the Tower, but that had nothing to do with the way we felt about each other.
      Quinn: That's too bad.
      Operations: Madeline wasn't who she was because she slept with me. You're not ready for the Tower yet.

    • Mick: (After Nikita threatens him) I don't know! I'm not who you think I am. I'm not Mr. Jones. I'm an imposter. My - my name is Martin Henderson. Please... just let me up.
