  • Carla is back and operative 9 years away from Section meets Nikita - really promising.

    I would say, the best moment for this episode was - Carla. I so much liked her in first season - something humane in Nikita's life, different and somehow "normal" considered with other.

    The story is, this time, about a mission where Nikita mets a man who claims to be an old operative left out and who has not managed to get back but who wants. Nikita becomes a middleman between him and Operations, then learns that they want to kill him and his tries to contact Section has been messed by Operations himself. So, what this is all about? The answer comes when Nikita, in last hope, goes to talk with Madeline as he said, if nothing helps, to with Madeline. The man is Madeline's husband, thought to be dead.

    Everything seems to go well. Nikita manages to get him away from the shooting, and Madeline appears, wants time to alone but ends up killing him. Again, I just cannot understand her - does she has any feelings at all?

    And the end - Carla has set a trap for Nikita and she is taken.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Nikita: Walter, it's just this place. It gets to me sometimes, that's all. I was in pretty bad shape this time the last year. I don't wanna feel that way again.

    • Walter: Sugar, listen, you can't change the way they treat you. The only thing you can change is the way you treat yourself. Why don't you go out? Have a good time, find a man.

    • Michael: (on Nikita's promotion) Is this a singularity or is it a permanent upgrade?
      Operations: We'll see how it goes. Do you have a problem with any of this?
      Michael: Nikita performs best when she's scripted. I don't think she's ready.
      Operations: I disagree. It's never easy, but you are going to have to let go sometime, Michael.

    • Michael: Think it through. But more importantly you will have to stop coming to me. I'm no longer your mentor.

    • Madeline: It was wrong of me to put you in this position. Operations was right.
      Nikita: He was your husband.
      Madeline: Yes, he was.
      Nikita: How could you kill him?
      Madeline: There was no way to bring him back. His presence outside the Section for so many years would undermine our credibility. And letting him go wasn't an option. He understood that.
