Episode Summary

After Michael eludes Operations' first cancellation attempt, Operations puts all missions on hold and sends out a team to kill him. Michael again manages to escape certain death, but this time he returns to infiltrate Section. Determined to find the files that possess the formula for deprogramming Nikita, Michael is stunned to discover who Section's first test subject was Adrian, Section One's founder, whose effort to topple Operations failed two years earlier. To gain leverage against Operations, Michael snatches Adrian, but her help proves limited when Michael discovers her memory has been blanked.moreless

  • Super episode... Michael fooling all the section.

    Thinking about Section - they should have the best tehnic, best people. And still - there is one man who can fool them all. Who can get in, get out again with Adrain and still be alive. It seems little unbelievable or Michael has to be... super good. He can overtake every trap they have for him. And Nikita still tries all to kill him. She is quite committed on it. Also others risking for Michael - Birkoff risking too much.

    The other girl storyline who wants to get out - also moving. All the Michael storyline - Adrian.. She is alive.. it was shock. And Nikita's neighbor... Super episode.. Supermoreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Adrian: Hello, Nikita. (Michael slips behind her and puts a gun to her head)
      Nikita: He won't kill me.
      Adrian: He might not, but I will.

    • Operations: (after Michael steals Adrian) Until this matter is resolved, there are no missions.

    • Birkoff: I don't want to know this! I gotta get back. I'm not gonna report you, but you're on your own.
      Michael: Birkoff, if the process is successful, they'll use it on all of us. Nikita's just the beginning.

    • Birkoff: Most recruits give up after their first talk with Madeline. But if you still have any illusions about getting out of here, I'm going to introduce you to Walter.
      Dori: Who's Walter?
      Birkoff: He's the guy who's going to issue you a gun and a single bullet. Because taking your own life is the only way you're going to get out.

    • Operations: You said Michael was testing Nikita. You were wrong, and now he has the advantage.
      Madeline: Even if he's tapped in, I've made sure Gelman's program can't be accessed. Not from outside.
      Operations: We can take all the precautions in the world, but this is Michael we're dealing with.

    • Nikita: You want me to kill Michael?
      Madeline: Is that a problem?
      Nikita: No.

    • Michael: Do you know who you are?
      Nikita: Do I know who I am? I'm me... and I love you.
      Michael: Do you? Or do you want to kill me?
      Nikita: Why are you talking like this?
      Michael: If I hand you this gun, are you going to shoot me? You won't have any reason to hesitate. The order has been given. (he hands her the gun)
      Nikita: Michael. (she pulls the trigger, but it's unloaded) You don't belong here anymore, Michael.
      Michael: Why are you saying that?
      Nikita: 'Cause you don't have what it takes. If you did, I'd be dead.
