Nikita - Tipping Point

Michael‘s (Shane West) obsession into finding the secret organization Dr. Heidecker (John Billingsley) once worked for leads Michael and Nikita (Maggie Q) to an empty high security office building and an unexpected gift of a new hand for Michael. However, to earn the help of  attaching the new hand Division is offered a deal – the surgery in exchange for Nikita stealing a biotech device from a lab in China. Although Nikita and Michael are able to make it out with the technology, the third member (Patrick Kwok-Choon) of the team isn’t so lucky which does nothing to help Division’s low morale.

In the episode’s B-story Sonya (Lyndie Greenwood) witnesses someone attempt to sabotage Division’s servers and take all of Division trackers offline before making a break for it. Realizing he may have a mutiny on his hands which could sink Division for good, Ryan (Noah Bean) to tasks Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) and Sean (Dillon Casey) to find the agents responsible (Jessica CamachoSamy OsmanChad Connell) who were driven to action after Alex let all of Division in on the U.S. Government’s contingency plan to destroy Division if their actions ever became an embarrassment to the President (Michelle Nolden).

Nikita prepares to hand over the biotech device as Michael’s surgery nears its completion but the arrival of some very pissed off Chinese private security agents delay the exchange and put both Nikita and Michael’s lives in danger. Meanwhile Sean catches the leader of the mutiny, or so Ryan believes up until the point where an increasingly confused Alex shoots him in the chest to protect their secret. With Ryan in critical condition and her co-conspirator taking the fall Alex hides her part in the plot (at least for the time being).

Things are certainly heating up as the show reveals Amanda‘s (Melinda Clarke) control of Alex as well as give us a glimpse at a new shadowy organization, which Birkhoff (Aaron Stanford) nicknames “The Shop,” and could be either a potential enemy or ally for Division. Next week Amanda returns to play with another of her puppets as we learn just how far Owen (Devon Sawa) will go when confronted with his past.
