Sorry, this was posted like a million days ago (Feb 4th) on KSiteTV. I’ve been a little behind with them sadly.
AMANDA INTERROGATES ALEX — In order to speed up her healing, Amanda (Melinda Clarke) sedates Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) after her last mission then takes advantage of Alex’s drugged condition to question her about the secrets Amanda believes Alex is keeping. Nikita (Maggie Q) realizes Alex is in danger and tries to secure her another identity to smuggle her out of the country. However, Nikita’s contact double-crosses her and she comes face to face with a surprising opponent. Meanwhile, Michael (Shane West) becomes suspicious of Alex and asks Birkhoff (guest star Aaron Stanford) to investigate her.
It also turns out that FonsecaNet is nominated for March site of the month, this is our first time being nominated for Portrait and it is also a voting process. The vote for SOTM is at the bottom of the right sidebar. Preview Image
Now that Alex has settled into her new life and we’ve settled into the new direction of Nikita, it’s time to get back to what this show does best: secrets, lies and a healthy dose of action.
In voiceover, Alex gives us (and Nikita) the specifics of her first mission as a full-fledged Division agent: assassinating Prince Eric of Georgia at a museum get-together, taking orders from Brendan Fehr from Roswell. When prompted, she also tells Nikita that Michael hasn’t asked about her lately (in an operational context, of course), but when she asks Nikita what the deal is between them, Nikita brushes past that to focus on screwing up this latest mission.
Alex later runs into Michael, who’s busy repairing all the damage done from Nikita’s escape in the midseason finale. (That’s right, Division has not magically fixed itself in the last two weeks.) He warns her that there’s no such thing as an easy mission, something Nikita echoes while the two women decide that the Georgian director of intelligence is the most likely to profit from the prince’s death. You have to love the Disney references that they work into this scene. It’s not like we weren’t all thinking that when they told us the prince’s name was Eric. With their plan figured out, Nikita arrives at the gala, getting close to Princess Kristina so that she can pass on the message that her husband’s life is in danger within the hour. Unfortunately for Nikita, the princess is in on the plan, and she ends up Tased. So much for true love.
Question: Can you give us some Michael/Nikita scoop? —Rachel
Ausiello: Would you settle for Michael/Alex instead? I have a gut feeling those two crazy kids will be hooking up soon, something Lyndsy Fonseca would neither confirm nor deny when TVLine’s Megan Masters caught up with her last week. “If something were to happen between Michael an Alex,” she mused, “I think it would take over a few episodes. They wouldn’t just make out.”
ALEX’S PAST CATCHES UP TO HER — While out on a mission for Division, Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) runs into Irina (guest star Ksenia Solo), a woman from her past. Alex tries to help Irina break free from her captor, but her old friend double crosses her and turns Alex over to Vlad (guest star Mark Ivanir), a Russian mobster, with a debt to settle. Nikita (Maggie Q) realizes Alex is in trouble and sets out to save her but runs into Michael who is searching for his missing agent. Realizing she can’t compromise Alex’s secret, Maggie must find a way to work with Michael to save Alex without getting her friend killed by Division. Ken Fink directed the episode written by Andrew Colville (#115).
