En route to a training exercise, a bus filled with Division recruits, including Alex and Thom, is attacked by terrorists and the recruits are kidnapped. Unknown to them, the attack, and subsequent kidnap and torture they endure is a test orchestrated by Division. Michael, Percy, Michael and Amanda watch as Alex is tortured, but Alex, defying all anticipation, manages to escape and she contacts Nikita for help, but before she can get to Alex, Michael arrives to reveal the test and bring her back to Division. Meanwhile, as Owen begins to trust Nikita, he reveals some alarming information about Daniel Monroe, Nikita’s fiance, that shocks and upsets her – Owen was the Division “cleaner” that assassinated Daniel, at Percy’s order. In the end, Owen escapes, insisting on fighting Division on his own, and recovers the black box he previous had hidden. Michael, at this time, is seen to having to deal with the apparent death of Nikita, who Percy believes to have personally killed in Montreal during her escape with Owen.
