    A good episode which sees Nikita again falling for somebody she's supposed to be monitoring, Gray also has a good storyline but, sadly, has too many loose ends for it to be a complete masterpiece.

    Gray sees a terrorist breaching Section's security and stealing a directory full of files on Section's operatives. Nikita goes undercover and starts dating the man who may unknowingly have the directory and ends up falling for him.

    Callum Keith Rennie gives an excellent performance as Gray and he has genuine chemistry with Peta Wilson. It's nice to see her in a relationship with somebody who hasn't got an evil agenda (unlike Alec Chandler in Charity) and their scenes together make for some of the most memorable moments in this episode.

    Gray is one of the more obvious spy stories and there are numerous other memorable moments which feel like they've been ripped straight out of a James Bond movie. The explosive necklace and the staging of Nikita's death being two most noteworthy.

    Although, the ending is slightly annoying, with the directory failing to be recovered. Section seem a little too blasé about it and you end up thinking that the entire story was pretty pointless. When looking at the teaser and the concerned look on the faces of Operations and Madeline when they discover the directory has been stolen, you would expect that they wouldn't just let it stay missing.

    Despite some annoyances, Gray is an excellent episode most notable for good performances from Peta Wilson and Callum Keith Rennie, and more hints at Michael's attraction to Nikita.
