comment
A secretive United States government agency known as "Division" has for years been recruiting young adult convicts by faking their deaths and forcing them to train as spies and assassins. The recruits are brainwashed and threatened with a violent death should they fail in their assigned duties. Answering to no higher authority in the U.S. Government, Division has in recent years begun to go rogue, hiring out their particular services to the highest bidder.Nikita was once one of Division's best operatives, but she escaped prior to the start of the series and went rogue after the agency had her fiance killed. After three years spent planning her revenge, Nikita declares war against the agency by thwarting a crucial assassination. Unwilling to remain hidden in the shadows any longer, Nikita delivers a message directly to Division's director... she is going to bring the agency down, one mission at a time if she has to, and she vows to ensure that no one else will have their lives stolen in the way that Division took hers.Nikita is an action-drama TV Series based on the 1990 French film of the same name. Premiering in 2010 on The CW Network, the series stars Maggie Q, and is produced by Warner Bros.. The series ran for four seasons, with its fourth season comprising six episodes. The final episode aired on December 27, 2013.Not in continuity with the previous series, La Femme Nikita, on which it is also based.

Not-So-Harmless Villain
 Nikita / int_171ef47c
comment
Not-So-Harmless Villain: In the first few episodes, Percy seems ineffectual and incompetent. As time goes on however, you can see just how dangerous he really is. And as of 1x21... sweet Jesus. Just check out his description on the Magnificent Bastard page. In the Season 2 premiere, semi-innocent Non-Action Guy Birkhoff unleashes a pair of attack drones on a Division strike team to save Michael and Nikita. And then when Carla attempts to betray Nikita and Michael, it's Birkhoff who shoots her. This also applies to several minor enemies Nikita faces, such as a nanny and a "sweet" Texan cat lady.

Reality Ensues: When a terrorist holds Division up for $5 million dollars for information in the third season, Nikita and Michael figure they can just pay him as they're used to that being chump change for the company. However, Ryan has to break it to them that the reason Division was flush with cash before was all the illegal dealings Percy was running. Now, they're on a government budget which means "we barely have enough to keep the lights on."

Chekhov's Gun
 Nikita / int_22cf536c
comment
Chekhov's Gun: In a flashback to Nikita's "first kill", her target mentions to her (posing as a prospective nanny for his newborn) that he worries his daughter will inherit his peanut allergy. This comes into play later when it turns out her victim faked his death and is now the head of a gang specializing in human slavery. When Nikita is captured, he proves his dominance by forcing a kiss on her, unaware that she was wearing lipstick laced with peanut oil. The print pad Alex made to access Percy's office is later found by Jaden and finally, after falling into Thom's hands, is used as evidence that he was Nikita's spy in the Division. In the same episode, we finally see Alex's earlier shown escape tunnel get used by Nikita, who uses it to escape from Division following her breakout, after which Percy discovers it and has it sealed. Every few episodes after "All The Way" some small event causes Micheal to get suspicious about Alex's behavior. These include a phone call with strange background noise and surveillance camera footage of a failed mission. In "Echoes" he revisits all of these incidents which leads to the big Cliffhanger where he figures out Alex is the Mole and where Nikita is living. We find out that Percy deduced Nikita and Michael's partnership when Kasim was killed. In "Pandora", we find out that the nerve agent Jaden stole for Percy in "Girl's Best Friend" was implanted in the fake Black Box he let Nikita steal, set to activate and kill the head of the CIA so that Percy can replace him. Near the end of "Betrayals", Alex grabs an unseen object that in "Pandora" is revealed to be a paralytic to help fake Nikita's death. Nikolai Udinov's watch, which Alex gave to Irina to pawn. Amanda recovers it, and Sean later gives it to her as a Pet the Dog moment. It's implanted with a GPS tracker, which allows him to find Nikita. In "Glass Houses", Roan explains to Alex how he disposes of bodies. In "Pandora", Alex uses that information to help fake Nikita's death and help her escape from Roan.

Ironic Echo: Amanda once told Nikita that "Deception is more important than brute force." This is the plot point for the series finale, "Canceled," as Nikita appears to go over the Moral Event Horizon in the process of taking down the Group and their doubles during her Roaring Rampage of Revenge over Ryan's death. She later reveals that everyone she supposedly killed is still alive and incarcerated, and that it was all a ruse to lure Amanda into a trap.

Genre Blindness: In "Into the Dark", Owen tells Nikita to keep her head down to prevent her face being caught by traffic cameras. However, he doesn't bother to wear a cap or hood to keep his face concealed. And in "Glass House", when Dana Winters reveals herself as a trained assassin to her boyfriend, no one bothers to make sure the boyfriend's son isn't listening. Carla, Nikita's mentor and founder of Division, somehow gets the idea that Percy should have Division back and is a good guy. And then tried to pull a gun on Birkhoff, who proved that he was not as harmless as she assumed.

Mugged for Disguise: Happens occasionally, lampshaded in "Alexandra" when Nikita steals the uniform of a towel girl to get into a sauna full of baddies. The guard states that the man inside the sauna whom Michael is waiting to talk to won't be long as he's with a towel girl with "dark hair, long legs, very hot." Michael immediately knows who he means and breaks down the door to the sauna.

The Man Behind the Man
 Nikita / int_3a1c2171
comment
The Man Behind the Man: Oversight, the organization that oversees Division although Percy's made it quite clear that he doesn't like taking orders from anyone, and has already had at least one member of Oversight killed to cover Division's tracks. The season one finale shows that they don't even like him, as he's long since broken free of their control and is blackmailing them with the information on the Black Boxes. In the season 1 finale, Percy reveals that his huge plan is to essentially become this for the CIA after replacing the director with a puppet. In late Season 2, it's revealed that Gogol is the intelligence wing of Zetrov, making Semak the man behind Tasarov. Late Season 2 marks the first appearance of the Group, a shadowy private council who Percy wants to join. They continue to pop up here and there throughout season 3, and finally get brought to light in season 4.

Though she knew Birkhoff wouldn't tell her anything - the pistol whipping was to knock him out and leave him in pain, so that he wouldn't realise she'd planted a bug on one of his teeth.

Enemy Mine: Gogol keeps trying to carry out this trope with Nikita, but she knows that that would be a bad idea: Owen attempts to do this with Gogol in season 2, but Ari wised up and doublecrossed him first. Nikita and Michael try to pull this off a few times in season one (before his Heel–Face Turn, but it usually falls apart before the episode's even over. In "Girl's Best Friend", Alex and Jaden truly put aside their differences for the first time, with intriguing results. In "Guardians", Nikita and a Guardian briefly work together to keep Gogol from stealing one of the Black Boxes. It's pretty much a weekly event in Season 2, with all the different factions.

The Group is a secret council of eight members who are apparently in control of everything.

Air-Vent Passageway: Used in "Innocence" to place a bomb beneath its target. Realistically, it's incredibly hard to get in, and claustrophobically small once you are, and that's for a brainwashed 12-year old ex-gymnast Child Soldier. Nikita doesn't even consider following. They are also present at Division so Alex can sneak around and snoop. Although their presence is actually justified, as a huge facility deep underground would need large capacity air handling systems, the idea that Division didn't know about them or failed to secure the vents is, at the very least, surprising.

Big Damn Kiss: Nikita and Michael share one in "Covenants", made even more awesome by the overlay of Florence and the Machines' "Cosmic Love". A quieter one is shared by Alex and Sean in "Dead Drop." "Homecoming" has one between Birkhoff and Sonya. There's another kiss in "3.0", after Nikita accepts Michael's proposal.

The Good, the Bad, and the Evil: What Season 2 becomes, with Nikita and company as the Good, Division/Oversight as the Bad, and Gogol/Zetrov as the Evil. The latter two are pretty interchangeable especially after Percy recaptures Division from Amanda, and as of the latter end of Season 2 Zetrov ceases to be antagonistic, with Amanda and Ari on the run, making them the Bad, and Percy the Evil, due to him being the bigger threat now.

Dysfunction Junction
 Nikita / int_820ac3c5
comment
Dysfunction Junction: Nikita was a drug addict and delinquent, abused by her foster father, then got recruited into Division which made her a killer and resulted in the murder of her fiance. Alex's parents were killed by Division, she was sold into sex slavery and kept there for several years, finally emerging as a drug addict and living on the streets until Nikita found her. Michael's family was killed by an Arab terrorist. And that's just the three main characters. Jaden was apparently raped at one point, followed by her killing the rapist in his sleep. She stuck a knife in his neck; Division thought she showed "initiative". This show runs on this trope, and it's justified due to the fact that Division recruits convicts and criminals to work for them. If there's not something seriously wrong with you, you don't belong there.

In all of his other appearances, no mention is made of a family at all, and when he runs off with Amanda he certainly doesn't act like he's leaving children or a wife behind. This is later revisited in Season 3; Ari's son has been kept away from his father's life

Only in It for the Money: Percy appears to be this. One of the Oversight members suggests that the whole motivation for his plan to kill and replace the head of the CIA is for access to the CIA's enormous black budget. His real motives are more complex. Ari Tasarov, the head of Division's Russian counterpart Gogol, fits this trope better. "Origins" reveals that he and Amanda are working together to seize Zetrov from Semak, using Alex as their pawn. And when that plan was in danger of failing, Ari suggested killing Alex, framing Semak, and stealing Gogol's operating budget - 300 million US Dollars isn't the same as a Mega-Corp, but it's a tremendous amount of money for two people.

Wham Episode

comment
Wham Episode: 1x11, "All the Way": Nikita's backdoor leak in the Division's security system is liquidated, Thom is Killed Off for Real by Alex, who is promoted to field agent after half a season as a recruit. Episode 1x16: "Go ahead, ask me how I got here." Episode 1x17, by the look of the 2nd promo. Except some of the Wham-ness has been blown by said promo. Though something it didn't spoil was The Reveal that Kasim, the man who killed Michael's family, did so on orders from Percy. It also didn't give away that this revelation would lead to Michael's apparent Heel–Face Turn. Episode 1x20 - Jaden is killed by Nathan while fighting with Alex, and a hidden recording device on her finally reveals to Amanda that she is working for Nikita Followed immediately by 1x21 - Percy turns Alex into a Double Agent by revealing that Nikita was the one who killed her father; Michael's cover is blown and he's imprisoned in Division; the captured black box is revealed to the audience to be a Trojan Horse and part of Percy's move against the government; and the episode ends with Alex shooting Nikita. The following episode - the season finale - involves Ryan being arrested by the CIA, Nikita's loft being blown up, her and Michael going on the run with a fully decrypted Black Box, and Alex splitting from both Nikita and Division, and being recruited by Oversight to go after Nikita (and possibly Percy as well). Season 2 has had a few shocks and surprises, but the first real Wham episode was 2x10, where in the last few minutes it's revealed that Alex's mother is still alive. 2x13: Percy escapes Division with Roan and the last Guardian, Amanda takes over Division after most of Oversight is killed, and Team Nikita apparantly now includes Madeline and Sean. Alex is, as usual, stuck between Team Nikita and Amanda. 2x18: Percy regains conrol of Division, thanks to a mole and some (unwitting) help from Birkoff, Ari looses control of Zetrov, and Amanda and Ari end the episode on the run, hunted by Division, Gogol, and Team Nikita. 2x23 ends the season with Percy and Roan dead, Team Nikita running a collectively Heel Face Turned Division on the government's behalf, a still free Amanda revealed to have decrypted the last Black Box, and Sean asking Alex out on a date. 3x18, "Broken Home". Owen/ Sam is on the run with the last Black Box, Division suffers a violent mutiny that ends with multiple dead and almost everyone leaving, Sean dies, and Alex goes rouge (again)

They are also present at Division so Alex can sneak around and snoop. Although their presence is actually justified, as a huge facility deep underground would need large capacity air handling systems, the idea that Division didn't know about them or failed to secure the vents is, at the very least, surprising.

You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: The standard procedure for Division is to 'cancel' agents who have failed or no longer have a use. This applies even to Percy and members of Oversight. A Guardian in "Guardian" takes out a Swiss scientist after he secures his supply of Regimen drugs.

comment
Villainous Breakdown: Percy has a mild one in the season finale - after his big plan to take over the CIA is ruined, he orders an attack on Nikita's loft. Rather than watching the screens with his usual calm detachment, he spends the whole time glaring in cold fury and screaming orders at the strike team: Percy nearly goes through this in "Shadow Walker", as he watches all 70 million dollars of his money burn. It is with visible effort that he controls himself.

Where Does He Get All Those Wonderful Toys?
 Nikita / int_9723e2cd
comment
Where Does He Get All Those Wonderful Toys?: A common question throughout Season One. It's eventually revealed that Nikita possesses a printing press used to print counterfeit "superdollars", meaning her only problems are getting ink and the right paper, though it's eventually lost when Division storms her loft. In Season Two, Birkhoff is revealed to have stolen over twenty million dollars prior to being "recruited" by Division, and uses this to bankroll Team Nikita. Until it's eventually lost. Alex, having cashed in her Zetrov stock, seems to have taken over the money side now. In Season Three, Ryan tells Nikita and Michael that Division's been cut off from Oversight's black budgets, and the President won't authorise funding. They have some money (53 million), but not enough to be as extravagant as Division used to be.

Took a Level in Badass: Jaden, in "Girl's Best Friend". For most of the first season, she gets beat down by Alex, Nikita, and is shown to be pretty inept. But in that episode, on her first high-profile mission, she takes out four mooks, the episode's Big Bad, and saves Alex's bacon. Birkhoff seems to have taken some in the interim between S1 and S2. By "343 Walnut Lane", he's become a good enough fighter to stand toe-to-toe with a Division agent and last a decent amount of time. He also programs a drone to bomb his own house, in a suicide move that actually succeeds in killing the Division strike team and not himself, Michael, and Nikita. Of course, he had incentive, after being kidnapped on separate occasions by Nikita and the CIA. After Division kidnaps him and Amanda tortures him, he now keeps a gun in close reach at all times, and regularly spars with Michael. Alex takes serveral levels in Season 2, starting in "Knightfall" by ignoring a direct order from Amanda and killing her target (her first real kill), later infiltrating Russia to get revenge. Sonya, after a season and a half as a quiet computer geek, opens fire with an MP5K during the mutiny in "Broken Home" to save Birkoff.

Continuity Nod
 Nikita / int_9dab0a6e

Continuity Nod: Quite a few in "All the Way", for example, Birkhoff naming the Engineer as the one who helped him to find a leak in Division's network and Thom mentioning the Russian spy he had to kill to be promoted to field agent. And in "Alexandra", Michael and Nikita have a discussion about the last time they teamed up in "One Way". In both "Dark Matter" and "The Next Seduction", Nikita uses the knife Michael gave her in "One Way". She appears to carry it with her all the time which is both sweet and sad at the same time. In "Pandora", Nikita brings up how Alex once tried to kill herself when Nikita brought her off of the street. In "Fair Trade", Birkhoff warns his replacement at Division that "when they're done with you, they'll snap your neck and melt you in acid", a reference to the Engineer's fate (though we only saw the former on screen). At the close of "Dead Drop", Nikita and Michael discuss how they are now compared to how they were: in a safehouse, hiding from division, with no money, tech or weapons, and how their safehouses keep getting lost. The continuity overall for the show is pretty top notch and the numerous nods reflect that.

Death Is the Only Option: Alex is exposed as a mole to Amanda, who then does the requisite cancellation (read: execution) by lethal injection. After her vital signs cease she steps away, checks her nails, then injects Alex with adrenaline to restart her heart, kill chip disabled. Later happens to Sean. Framed for murder and in FBI custody, the only way to save him is to poison and kill him, then snatch the body in the morgue and inject him with an antidote. Ryan takes this option permanently via a hotel window to avoid becoming Amanda's slave and ensure Nikita knows that the fight isn't over.

It Gets Easier: Invoked in Season 1 when Nikita is concerned that Alex's test for promotion to field agent — which requires Alex to kill a target in cold blood — will result in her heading down the same bloody path Nikita followed. Although the test is avoided because Alex accidentally kills a fellow Division cadet who she frames as a mole, by season 2 Nikita's efforts are for naught as Alex starts killing fairly frequently during her missions with Nikita, and in Season 2, completes an assigned assassination despite Division ordering her to stand down, albeit the target was someone Alex has a personal vendetta against.

I even make it look like a video game so your tween minds can understand it!", earning this a Crowning Moment of Funny.

Ari Tasarov, the head of Division's Russian counterpart Gogol, fits this trope better. "Origins" reveals that he and Amanda are working together to seize Zetrov from Semak, using Alex as their pawn. And when that plan was in danger of failing, Ari suggested killing Alex, framing Semak, and stealing Gogol's operating budget - 300 million US Dollars isn't the same as a Mega-Corp, but it's a tremendous amount of money for two people.

Oh, Crap!: An amazingly collective Oh, Crap! face by all the recruits as Nikita comes out of the elevator in Division. She then proceeds to wipe the floor with all of them. Also the look on Percy's face when a pissed off Michael bursts into his office and proceeds to kick his ass. And Nikita herself has a small one in the pilot when she runs into Roan in the hotel hallway. Also in the pilot Michael, when he sees Nikita for the first time. Birkhoff gets a pretty epic one in "343 Walnut Lane" as Alex tells him that Ellison's not only not Nikita's father, but that he's working for Division. Birkhoff has a verbal one over the phone when Alex accidentally runs into Roan in S02E13, when Alex is in the middle of trying to get to the bottom of Division to shut down the gas dispersal system that would kill everybody inside. Alex, upon seeing him, has one herself. Then Birkhoff gets another one when Alex tells him that she escaped (calling Roan "the Terminator") but Roan is chasing her. Roan just seems to pick these up any time he runs into one of the main characters.

Was It All a Lie?
 Nikita / int_b5619979
comment
Was It All a Lie?: Inverted because the main character of Alex is set up to be the mole from the very start, and we see it all from her point of view. Rather than the hero being the one betrayed by the mole and yell-asking "was it all a lie?!" toward the mole, the hero is the mole. There is a very dramatic "Was everything just a lie?!" moment coming from the more minor character, Thom, directed at the main character of Alex mid-way through the first season - it is a very intense scene that does involve a gun and is perfect fodder for a mid-season finale with a lot of drama.

And she also kills Dream!Jaden in the process. As a bonus, Alex's mental defenses manifest as Dream!Nikita. At one point, Amanda's questioning manifests as Dream!Michael. Dream!Nikita fights off Dream!Michael for a few minutes... before they end up making out passionately. Both Alex and Amanda lampshade the UST.

Cliffhanger
 Nikita / int_c6b8d37a
comment
Cliffhanger: This show loves ending on cliffhangers. There's too many to list all of them, so here's a couple examples from just the first two seasons. "Echoes" (1x16) ends with a doozy of a cliffhanger - while Percy and Amanda are discussing whether or not to "cancel" Alex, and Alex is thinking that it may be time to escape Division, the last scene shows Michael awaiting Nikita in her loft. With a shotgun. As does "Glass Houses" (1x20). Nathan kills Jaden, Alex sells the lie to Division and thinks she's gotten away with it... until Amanda reveals that Jaden's cochlear implant had recorded Alex calling Nikita for help afterward and knocks Alex out cold. Which is topped by the end of "Betrayals" (1x21). See Wham Episode below. "Pandora" (1x22) ends the season with Nikita and Michael on the run with a decrypted Black Box, and Alex being recruited by Oversight to act against both Nikita and Percy. "Sanctuary" (2x12) While Nikita's team and a captive Sean are negotiating with Oversight via phone, the Guardians take Oversight hostage and threaten to gas Division if Amanda doesn't release Percy. "Crossbow" (2x22): Percy's attempt to blackmail the President ends with Nikita and Micheal stuck in Division, Alex and Sean outside, and the Marines may be on their way.

"Crossbow" turns into a 42-minute Shout-Out to Star Wars. The old Star Wars missile-defense sytem is mentioned, Percy's Kill Sat (dubbed the Death Star by Micheal) is called Crossbow (Like Chewie's bowcaster), Birkoff tells Nikita "May the Force be with you". The final plan is a trench run to fire a torpedo down...sorry, have Nikita drop down the silo to blow the computer room. Star Wars seems to be a favorite .

Action Girl: Nikita, who was trained by Division to take out her targets by using guns, knives, or even her bare hands, is now using those skills against her former boss. After a lackluster first season, Alex goes totally badass in Season 2 and remains this trope for the rest of the series. How badass does she become? She ends up being the one to cause Roan's death. ROAN. Any current female recruits of Division also qualify, as do any of the female operatives the main characters encounter throughout the series. This show loves badass women.

Gambit Pileup: In 2x16, aptly named "Doublecross", Team Nikita, Percy, Amanda/Division, and Carla all try to out-gambit each other, with several allegiances briefly forming. The resulting mess costs Percy his sole remaining Guardian (though Roan might have Guardian augmentation), Division several agents, Carla her life, and ends with Team Nikita manages comes out on top, rescuing Ryan from Division. Season 2 is this trope in a nutshell. Percy, Amanda, Oversight, Nikita's group, everyone has their own agenda. Over on Television Without Pity, a forum user found eight possible matchupsnote Team Nikita vs. Division, Alex vs. Gogol/Zetrov, Amanda vs. Oversight vs. Nikita, Oversight vs. Nikita, Division vs. Gogol, Sean vs. Team Nikita, Alex vs. Division (sort of), Percy vs. everybody...and the list was outdated in under a month.

Know When to Fold 'Em
 Nikita / int_e16cd24e
comment
Know When to Fold 'Em: Ari and Amanda originally planned to use Alex as a puppet to control Zetrov. When this plan seemed no longer viable, Ari proposed to frame Semak for killing Alex, and stealing Gogol's operating budget in the ensuing chaos; while 300 million US dollars isn't a Mega-Corp, it's still an incredible amount of money for two people.

The Mole
 Nikita / int_e70127
comment
The Mole: Inverted where the character of Alex is set up to be the mole from the very start, and we see it all from her point of view. She remains the mole for the entirety of season 1. There is even a Was It All a Lie?? moment coming from the more minor character, Thom, directed at the main character of Alex mid-way through the season.

Freudian Trio: The founders of Division. Percy is Ego. Amanda and Carla don't get along the moment they meet. Amanda has a sadistic streak and a hunger for power beneath her calm exterior (ID). Carla is idealistic but hopelessly deluded. Not as morally pliable as the other two (Superego).

Lzherusskie: A lot of them in episode 1x09, set mostly in Uzbekistan (technically, at least some of them were supposed to be Uzbeks (judging by last names) but everyone, even the police, speaks only Russian). There was also an ex-KGB agent with a very Russian name Ari. And episode 1x12 shows that Alex(andra) is apparently of Russian descent, as flashbacks to her childhood show her father speaking with a Russian accent. A later episode shows that Alex's father was a very successful Russian businessman.

TV Telephone Etiquette
 Nikita / int_f4fcc961
comment
TV Telephone Etiquette: A large part of the drama sometimes replies on technology such as communication between two characters on a "safe" or "unsafe" line, such as Alex and Nikita. No one ever has a conversation as a normal person would (no one ever answers the phone with a "hello", leading to plans being uttered to enemies, of course), but that's pretty much justified.

You Killed My Father: Alex's entire motivation is to avenge her parents' murder. Unfortunately, in "Betrayal", she finds out that the Division agent who killed her father was Nikita. That complicates things. Actually, it just means that she refuses to work with Nikita anymore, and now plans to go after the man who hired Division to kill her father in the first place. Oh, and her mom is alive.
