Nikita recap: Pandora
What the #$*! Nikita’s dead? It sure appears that way…shot three times by Alex, no pulse, and a cleaner standing over her body ready to dispense with the evidence. Things definitely looked bleak on the season finale of Nikita but hey, we know our girl can overcome impossible odds…even something as major as this.
So, how was she reincarnated? Well, it turns out that Alex had quite a plan. She gave Nikita a paralyzing injection that made her heart rate undetectable (obviously, the gunshots were superficial). The cleaner then thought Miss N was a goner, broke the news to a rejoicing Percy, and proceeded with his cleansing process by using his own injection that flushes out toxins. That did it! Nikita woke up instantly and started swinging. The poor cleaner didn’t know what hit him (it was acid in his face, actually).
While he gathered his wits and called Percy, Nikita was able to piece together the events and realized that Alex had pulled a dirty trick. Not only did she “fake” kill her, she had rigged the black box that CIA Fletcher was trying to decrypt with the stolen nerve gas. Once he broke the code and started to read about Operation Sparrow, he and whoever else was with him would be overcome by the poison. Yikes! With no time to lick her wounds, Nikita darted out of there and high-tailed it to the CIA headquarters.
