Episode Summary

Nikita and Mr. Jones had The Collective's "mole" narrowed down to two suspects: Operations and the late Marco O'Brien, but Mr. Jones has a another possibility: that Michael Samuelle is still alive, and that he is the "mole." While granting to Mr. Jones the theoretical possibility that Michael may be alive, Nikita denies that he would ever betray Section for real. Meanwhile, Operations sets out personally to see to it that an anti-Collective mission goes according to his own plan, but it's The Collective that is poised to blow Operations' plane out of the sky! Can and will Nikita save Operations' derriere one last time or will their personal vendetta mean curtains for him?moreless

  • They shot down Operations...

    I adore the title of this episode but they did not worked the story out as good as I hoped. They get the excitement up but that was all - everyone is thinking that Michael is not dead and in the end Nikita has to confirm it - so they are sure - he is the mule. Nikita tells that he does it all only to get the information and help Section. Nikita believes that but the others don't. The situation becomes worser when on mission Nikita is almost killed and she believes that it was Operations. It does not take too much when Operations' plan crashes and he almost dies - now both Section and the bad ones are trying to get him. The managed to save Operations only to find out - that mr. Jones what to replace him with Nikita. Nikita does not want that place and so Operations is left alive.. And Quinn's schema becomes known too - see was also working for Center.

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Mr. Jones: I think you've forgotten that I have been watching you for seven years. And, I'm sure you are what we need.
      Nikita: (seriously) I don't want the job.
      Mr. Jones: Oh, I know. Neither did I.

    • Mr. Jones: (to Operations) They are waiting for you in Containment.
      (Operations starts to leave without argument)
      Nikita: Wait. (He keeps walking) If you want to live, wait. We've suffered enough losses lately. There's no point in killing each other.
      Mr. Jones: (warning her) If he lives, you'll never be safe again.
      Nikita: (staring at Operations) If I die for any reason, kill him. That takes away his incentive. Meanwhile, we have the benefit of his experience and skill.
      Mr. Jones: (to Operations) Congratulations. It appears you're alive again.
      Operations: (laughing) She doesn't have what it takes. This proves it.

    • Nikita: (after Michael seemingly helps The Collective hunt Operations) Michael's walking a fine line. He has to maintain credibility.
      Mr. Jones: You really have faith in your power over him, don't you? How much power does he have over you? (Nikita doesn't answer)

    • Nikita: (after she admits saving him from abeyance) Michael's not the mole.
      Mr. Jones: But you don't deny that he's alive?
      Nikita: I don't even deny that he's been helping the Collective. The question is... why?
      Mr. Jones: All right, why?
      Nikita: To learn as much as he can about them and use it to buy his way back into Section.
      Mr. Jones: You mean to come back to you.

    • Nikita: (after Nikita is almost killed on a mission due to lack of assistance from tactical) There was no Egress Three on my panel.
      Quinn: It was a late addition. Perhaps you missed it.
      Nikita: Why didn't you answer me when I asked for help?
      Quinn: I detected a tap on the frequency. Describing the Egress would have endangered the whole team.
      Nikita: You're lying. (they stare each other down, then Nikita gives up in disgust) I'm wasting my time talking to you. (she stalks of furiously and is accosted by Walter)
      Walter: Calm down.
      Nikita: (pulling away) I've been calm long enough.

    • Operations: If you had been on time for the briefing, you wouldn't have gotten confused.
      Nikita: You'd have found another way.
      Operations: (smiling coldly) You had the disk. Killing you would have sabotaged the mission.
      Nikita: I think you hate me enough to pay that price.
      Operations: That's nonsense.
      Nikita: (holds out her gun to him) If you want me dead, at least have the guts to do it face to face.
      Operations: If I thought you had the guts enough to give it to me loaded, I might be tempted.
      (Nikita fires a shot into the wall behind him, then offers it again)
      Operations: This is intolerable.
      Nikita: I couldn't agree more.
      Operations: I'll call Jones, demand an Article Three. One of use lives; one of us dies.
      Nikita: Just tell me when and where.
