Nikita, a recruited assassin, has escaped from the secret government, "Division," when we meet here - and is finished hiding.
She’s now into cat and mouse games, even coming face to face with Division members, but only in locations where they can’t touch her.
We find out that Alex, the newest recruit to Division, has a terrible past and is connected to Nikita. Then there's Michael, who had his chance to “confirm the kill” of Nikita, but let her go, seemingly for the second time. Nikita is a bad-ass, but does show some remorse for people she cares about, including members of Division to whom she was close.
The pilot leaves us wondering if Divison will find out that Alex and Nikita are working together to bring down the government.
