Someone is planting bombs in major cities, and Nikita soon begins to suspect that Michael knows something about it. Sure enough, after a mission to neutralize one of the bombs, Nikita follows Michael to a meeting with the man that planted the bomb, Rene Dian. After a little investigating, Nikita soon discovers the connection:Michael and Dian were student radicals in 1984 who planted bombs, a crime that Michael was convicted for, a conviction that brought him to the Section in the first place. The question is, are Michael's loyalties more with his old colleague or Section One?

"I was falsely accused of a hideous crime and sentenced to life in prison. One night I was taken from my cell to a place called Section One, the most covert anti-terrorist group on the planet. Their ends are just, but their means are ruthless. If I don't play by their rules, I die."
