This is the best episode of NIKITA so far. Through flashbacks,Rough Trade delves into the characters beginnings. We get a look at what Nikita and Michael's relationship was like in the past. And we are given a glimpse of Alex's life before meeting Nikita. Both are very incendiary stories. Furthermore, we see how the past influences their present actions and lives.
Nikita revisits her first Division mission when she posed as a nanny for government official Victor Han (Russell Wong), who was thought to be dead. She tries to make amends by going after the Red Circle Triad which supposedly instigated the killing. But it turns out that Victor is the Triad boss and is still alive because he made a deal with Percy. Michael begins to question Percy's motives, and prevents Nikita from being killed by the Triad. Victor is arrested. Back at Division, Alex has a flashback of how her parents were killed, suffering a panic attack while under a car for bomb training. Amanda helps Alex overcome her claustrophobia by putting her in a straitjacket that is controlled by maintaining one's heart rate.
