Title: The Recruit
Air Date: October 28, 2010
Synopsis: Alex informs Nikita that one of the recruits has been activated to carry out a suicide mission. Nikita intercepts the recruit just as Michael arrives.
Starting narration changed; it is shorter now.
Flash back to training with Nikita, about friends and enemies.
Nikita prevents the suicide mission and takes the recruit Sara back to her safe house. Sara has a child that Division doesn’t know about and is trying to reunite with her son.
Another recruit Robby is made a guard and is stuck on the inside instead of being “James Bond” as he thought he would become.
Robby breaks down and starts shooting the other guards while Michael is under fire in the field. During the fight Nikita tells Michael that Sara was shot – Division thinks she’s dead. Robby gets to the armory and picks up more weapons. Birkhoff orders Michael back to Division. (Section One, from La Femme Nikita, would have had more guards and agents to deal with this single recruit.)
Alex is taken hostage by Robby. She has to retaliate.
Sara does get to see her son Daniel from a far.
Alex thought Robby was executed but Amanda meets him in the basement about becoming a Cleaner. (The operative that “cleans up” the bodies.)
