Nikita 1.07 “The Recruit” Recap

 Nikita 1.07 The Recruit RecapDivision has a morbid sense of humor. In last week’s "Resistance" they had Thom involuntarily fake his own death, and this week they’ve dispatched a recruit named Robbie to carry out a suicide mission. Yes, people really are that expendable around here. You’d think they’d be a little more careful, since it can’t be easy or cheap to keep faking people’s deaths and putting them through complex training, but I guess not.

This week’s recruit training exercise is a glorified game of laser tag. Just hearing Michael explain the rules makes me think Shane West missed out on a career opportunity as a narrator. (At least, I’d listen to him read the phone book, and I know I’m not alone in that opinion.)

Flashback time! Two months before going under, Alex and Nikita are discussing how to tell the difference between your friends and your enemies. "Going through the program changes you," Nikita tells her. "They’ve been abandoned and abused, like you. Like me. It’s hard not to sympathize." You can guess at the point of having this flashback here already, can’t you?
