Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Section One must prevent a terrorist named Tyler (Richard Clarkin) from deploying a lethal and untraceable polymer explosive. As part of this operation, Nikita (Peta Wilson) and Michael (Roy Dupuis) must save the inventor of the explosive, Stanley Shays (Sean Whalen), from Tyler's clutches. When this fails, Nikita is ordered to "cancel" Shays -- an order she flatly refuses. As punishment, Section One assigns Nikita to a suicide mission, causing Michael (Roy Dupuis) to question his own loyalty. This final episode of La Femme Nikita's first season ends in a cliffhanger that will be not be resolved until the opening installment of season two.
