Nikita: Snoops and scoops
Promises, promises, promises. Nikita is definitely one who keeps her word, especially when it comes to taking down Division. On this week’s episode, our girl was at it again…but this time, she had her hands full protecting some eager beaver reporter who had dirt on Division’s newest client, a drug-smuggling airline. Who came out swinging and who came out on top? Here’s the full scoop.
Jill - Conspiracy, drugs and a plane crash -- sounds like the makings of a great news story, huh? Well, not when Division is involved. Journalist Jill Morelli found this out quickly after bullets started flying and her boss got shot and some scary men came along and said that they were framing her for the murder. Lucky for her, Miss N was out to make a few headlines of her own and quickly stepped in and snapped Jill up.
From that point on, the two ladies cordially worked together to unveil the full story. They figured out that the key to the whole mess was some Virginian college student who had video proof for a price. Nikita, being Nikita, had no intention of paying for anything. Instead, she planned to just take it. She and Jill tracked down the greedy pupil and then things got a little muddled. Division showed up, the video vigilante got gunned down, and Jill ended up being apprehended by the cops. But, it was a happy ending of sorts because Jill got to publish her scoop and Nikita, once again, got her way.
More vengeance and inside jobs after the jump. Plus: girl fight!
Alex -- Alex also did some snooping and scooping of her own. First, she got the intel Nikita needed on Jill by shrewdly picking a fight with her favorite foe, Jaden. When J threw blows at her face Alex casually leaned against some two-way glass and got a peek at the Operation Room video screens.
Later, Alex pulled some more creative moves when she was hanging out with Division’s super tech, Birkoff. To get him off his game, she offhandedly slid a Red Bull near his keyboard causing a techie’s worst nightmare: Spillage. With him distracted, Alex worked her own computer magic and was able to send the cops to help Nikita and Jill get out of that final jam with Division. (You, go girl.)
Alex really showed her smarts when Michael had the new recruits did a little detective work on a supposedly fake terrorist. Teamed up with fellow classmates Jaden and Thom, Alex was able to decipher all kinds of fun-filled facts that impressed Michael. However, it turns out Michael was the clever one because he used the information to track down the real target, journalist Jill.
The Mole Hunt
Percy also had a few revelations this week. He finally caught on to the idea that Nikita had someone on the inside. He quickly pointed his suspicions toward Birkoff who then became the object of an interrogation. As we learned last week, Division calls in Amanda when there’s a hard nut to crack and somehow she gets the job done. This week was no different. After ordering a full body scan, she was able to detect that someone had implanted a transmitter in his tooth and of course, they all suspected one person. You guessed it: Nikita. But did she really implant it or was it Percy’s idea? You decide.
