Episode Summary

Division intel reveals that a former Division agent, Markov, has reappeared after six years undercover and has become President of Uzbekistan, with plans to assassinate the President of the United States. Ryan reveals to his team that the president is already having doubts about Division's existence and has threatened to wipe them out if the public finds out about the secret agency. Nikita and Michael are furious that Ryan failed to reveal this information, and they are forced to come up with a way to save the president's life without alerting her to the life-threatening situation. Meanwhile, after Alex and Owen are caught in an explosion, an investigation leads them to believe that someone inside Division is responsible.

    This show has great writers and actors and its always entertaining to watch. This season has not been as good as the last one and the ratings aren't that great but the show still got it and it looks like its improving again and becoming better and if it improves after each episode then it may reach the level of season 2 (the season that made me love nikita because season 1 wasn't that good). Still sad about killing Percy but even the mention of him makes the episode better.moreless

    • Nikita: I know we're not all one big, happy family, but we are in this together...for better or worse. I need to believe it's for the better.
      Ryan: If we continue hunting the dirty thirty, we have got to do it smarter, quieter. Forget small footprint. It's got to be no footprint. So can we do this?
      Nikita: Let's find out.

    • Nikita: (referring to the president) You tell her the truth, they'll kill us.
      Ryan: We say nothing, he kills her.
      Nikita: No. We are going to stop Markov. Division is going to save the president's life without her even knowing her life was in danger, because she is wrong about us. We have changed.

    • Birkhoff: You got a better idea?
      Ryan: There aren't any better ideas.
      Nikita: Yes, there is. We run. Tell everyone in here that their government is trying to kill them, and then we open the barn doors.
      Ryan: You can't be serious. And have 300 agents panic and go rogue?
      Nikita: Or what, wait to be slaughtered?
      Ryan: It's not gonna come to that.
      Nikita: Can you guarantee that? Are you giving me your word, Ryan?

    • Ryan: Birkhoff and Sonya came to me with something. Looks like Amanda knew exactly when the attack on medical went down.
      Nikita: Knew how?
      Ryan: The bad version? Somebody told her.
      Nikita: A mole. Well, I guess we shouldn't be surprised. Probably too much to hope that this was one big, happy ship.
      Ryan: The Titanic was a happy ship right until the end.
