Although he no longer works for Section One, Michael remains Nikita's only hope for finding a cure to the deadly aftereffects from a mind-control process.
- After the explosion of the house where Nikita goes looking for her father, she enlists Walter and Jason to help decrypt the disc she discovered there. It leads her to the convalescence home where Michael left Adrian, which proves fortunate for Nikita, since she needs a cure for the longterm affects of the Gelman process that can only be synthesized using tissue samples from Adrian's remains. Now the only questions that remain is who is leaving Nikita these clues, Michael or Nikita's father? And is O'Brien on Nikita's side, or Operations?
