Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Birkoff (Matthew Fergusan) is traumatized when he forced to make his first kill. Madeline (Alberta Watson) puts Birkoff in "abeyance," ostensibly until he has recovered sufficiently to be of value to Section One. Knowing full well that abeyance is one step short of "cancellation," Nikita (Peta Wilson) endeavors to save Birkoff's life. Tara Sloane makes her first series appearance as Gail.
