"3.0" (Oct. 19)
Ryan takes charge of Division with Nikita by his side.  Their first mission under the new regime is to bring in "The Dirty Thirty," the rogue agents who failed to respond to the Division recall after Percy was killed. Unfortunately, their first mission doesn't go as planned and Michael is arrested, forcing Nikita to change gears and hatch an escape plan for him. Alex reprises her alter ego, the spoiled Russian princess Alexandra Udinov, in a very unique way as part of the plan to spring Michael. Meanwhile, Birkhoff struggles to maintain a working relationship with Sonya, despite his growing attraction to her.

Nikita, Michael and team extract a young girl named Liza, who is being held captive by a rogue Division agent, Wade. Wade has brainwashed Liza and trained her to be a Division agent to help him on his own personal mission. Nikita tries desperately to break through to Liza but, in a moment of chaos, the girl escapes Division. The team races to find her before she can complete her mission to unleash a deadly chemical into the UN building during a special event. Meanwhile, Liza's abduction brings up painful old memories for Alex.

Meanwhile, Birkhoff and Sonia continue to bicker.
