The terrorist group Tyler works for is called The Freedom League.
Nikita is put into abeyance in this episode.
Nikita: I need to know that one day when the Section's done with me, and I've performed all the functions I'm capable of, that I'll be free. Will I?
Madeline: What kind of answer would you like?
Nikita: The truth.
Madeline: No. You will never be free from the Section.
Nikita: (with calm resolution) Thank you.
Nikita: (at the inventor's junkyard) So what do you with all this stuff?
Stanley: Blow it up.
Stanley: (shrugging) It's what I do.
Madeline: What about Michael?
Nikita: Michael? A friend's someone you can trust.
Madeline: It's true, Michael has played a role with you from time to time. He's doing his job. It doesn't mean he's incapable of caring.
Nikita: Michael's not the solution to my problem, Madeline.
Michael: I can't protect you anymore.
Nikita: I never asked for your protection.
Michael: Without it, you'd be dead now.
Nikita: You seem to care more about that then I do.
Michael: Why can't you just... do the job?
Nikita: I tried to tell you.
Michael: Tell me what?
Nikita: I'm not who you think I am. I never killed anyone before I came into Section. I know you don't want to believe it, but you know it's true.
Michael: It's not important what you did. It's what you do now.
Nikita: I can't change who I am.
Michael: Then I can't help you.
Nikita: Why did you ever?
Michael: I wish things could be different.
Nikita: Me too.
Madeline: We may have some problems with him. There was something between them.
Operations: The question is now, can he let it go?
Nikita: (in her suicide note) The only sins I ever commited were on behalf of the Section. I'm only guilty of not taking charge of my own destiny. A fake obituary claimed I died in prison. In the end, that statement is true.
Nikita: I don't know if I can do this anymore. I don't know how I ever did.
Madeline: That's what you said when you first came to us. But, despite your own self-doubts, you've performed quite well.
Nikita: Where you see targets and security risks, I see flesh and blood. Someone's son, someone's friend.
Madeline: That's okay.
