Title: Rough Trade
Air Date: September 30, 2010
Synopsis: Nikita revisits her past when she posed as a nanny for an influential government official and decides to right the wrong of his death.
So far not much on how Nikita travels from one place to the next, at least NYC and DC. Or her financial resources.
Michael and Percy quickly see Nikita is going back to her first kill.
Flash back to six years ago with Nikita in training with Michael sparring. Then activating Nikita for her first operation.
Alex is supposed to on sentry duty to assist Nikita but she gets occupied by Division.
Another flash back to Nikita and Amanda getting ready for the first mission.
Nikita goes to the sweat shop backed by the Red Circle Triad where she attacks then sets it on fire.
Amanda drugs Alex with some tea after Alex freaks out during an IED disarming exercise while she is under the vehicle. And Amanda wants to know about why. Alex wakes up strapped in a straight jacket type device requiring her to slow her heart rate to 51 before she can be released.
The show is effectively progressing from 3 points of view, Alex, Michael, and Nikita.
Turns out Nikita’s first target was behind the Red Circle Triad and Division was behind it. She tells Michael about her findings. Michael goes to Percy for Victor’s location in Hong Kong.
Nikita arrives in Hong Kong but is captured at the airport.
Alex tells Amanda a fake story about what caused her break down. Essentially reversing it from a tragedt involving fire to one with water.
Nikita’s target forces a kiss on her and is poisioned by his peanut allergy. Michael backs her up with a sniper shot then lets her go.
A flash back reveals how Michael owes Percy his life.
