Nikita: Glass Houses
You WILL give me that pot roast recipe!
Lots of bodies were dropping this week on Nikita …all in the name of domestic bliss. Although our girls both have their eye on that prize, they know the time isn’t right. But one former Division guardian, a certain Dana Winters, wasn’t willing to wait any longer. She decided to hang up her gun and head for the white picket fence. To keep Division off her tail, she planted her tracker on some unsuspecting local. Everything was blissful for the past two years…she was living with her sheriff boyfriend and his son in some small town in Pennsylvania but recently, Percy has started getting itchy. With Nikita’s latest takedown of two of the boxes, he decided it was time to make sure that all of his remaining stash was in good hands.
To get the job done, Percy turned to his number one man, Michael. And since Michael is playing for both sides, he shared this news with his newest number one gal, Nikita. He told her to head there first, sniff things out, and then he would come along and act like he was taking care of business. Unfortunately for Winters, Nikita quickly discovered that she had left her post and was living a secret, happy, home life.
Read on for more spy-flavored hijinks!
Hooking a Guardian
In order to protect a former guardian who wants to live a normal life, you first need to get her permission. Nikita, as we know, can be bold, so she decided to make her move head on. She and Michael posed as newlyweds and interrupted Winters’ family dinner (pot roast anyone?). Although Winters was unpleasantly surprised, she let them in. After a few tense table moments, the two ladies finally headed to the bathroom for a little heart to heart (and a few kicks and punches).
When things calmed down, Nikita gave her the lowdown…she said hit the road with your brood before Division rolls up. She also explained her Division takedown plan regarding the black boxes. After Winters agreed to get on board, the ladies then decided to break the news to the boyfriend and stepson. This proved to be a little tricky. The boyfriend started yelling and the kid took off. Not a good thing when it’s time to go into hiding.
Nikita, though, knew how to get them back on track. She headed to the bank for the box while Michael kept his Division honchos at bay. Winters and her boyfriend then pounded the pavement to look for the kid.
Hiding a Guardian
With box in hand and Division henchman hanging around, Nikita knew things were gonna get messy. Berkoff even got in on the game and was able to have eyes on everyone in town. This caused a few snags. He nailed down Winters’ location in no time, while she was on her runaway search, and gave Michael the tip. In order to keep his cover as a loyal soldier, he and the Division strike team headed over there to cut her off. Winters quickly spun some story about stopping Nikita and that seemed to work.
Then, Berkoff gave Michael a lead on Nikita’s location. He said she was hanging in a hardware store with some kid (yup, the runaway stepson). Michael and the group followed the lead and soon, Nikita was barricaded inside the store with the kid. Because there was no way out, she sent out the kid thinking he would be safe. Unfortunately, one of the strike team members decided to play tough guy, grabbed the kid, and threatened to shoot him. This got everyone riled up, especially Winters. In a flash, Winters grabbed her gun, blew away all the Division strike team (except Michael), and the nightmare was over.
To ensure Winters’ freedom, Nikita destroyed her tracking device. Michael then reported to Percy that Guardian Winters was MIA and that Nikita had nabbed another box. (Uh oh, we know he didn’t like that news). But what he doesn’t know will really tick him off. In order to find out the scoop about some upcoming, covert mission called Operation Sparrow, Nikita and Michael plan to use the box’s content to get the details to stop it. This will really send Percy over the edge.
Things also got messy for Alex in her happy home. While arguing with Nathan, she lets it slip that she works for government assassins. This doesn’t sit well with the nosy neighbor (he thinks she’s really giving him the run around), and he tells her it’s over. Then, she gets an unexpected visitor…Jaden. Yikes, what else could go wrong?
Jaden comes in and is acting all chummy until Nathan pops back by and makes some snarky comment about government assassins. Uh oh, J girl doesn’t like the sound of that! She tries to make a call to Division to report the pesky guy and soon the girls are going at it. Both are throwing blows and in a flash, Jaden goes down with a gunshot wound to the chest. Wait, what? That’s right…Nathan got in on the action. He pulled the trigger. Now, it’s time to clean things up.
In a panic, Alex calls Nikita who tells her to get on the horn to Division, and they will send a cleaner. She does and things seem a-okay until she sits down with Amanda. While setting the story straight for Ms. Inquisitor, she gets a huge surprise. She learns that Amanda has been keeping super close tabs on her by using a cochlear implant. She even recorded her latest phone call to Nikita. Uh oh, cat's out of the bag. Can Nikita save Alex or are her days numbered?
