It's the life we've chosen
21 March 2013 | by (Iran) – See all my reviews

Team including Nikita, Sean, Owen and Ari head to South Ossetia to trade Ari for Alex. Alex is in a room of a hospital with another girl named Larissa which is a medic and watching Alex. Amanda asks her some information inside Division and how Division capture Ari. Ryan putted kill chip in Ari's head 'cause one of the key to the black box that Amanda has, is Ari and give the trigger to Owen who has a conflict with Ari. Alex is trying to escape with Larissa meanwhile Larissa got shot and Alex capture again. Alex and Ari be traded safety and while Nikita wants to get Ari back as she promised to him before and needs Alex, Alex also wants to save Larissa 'cause she promised to her needs Nikita, they split off and they both failed in what they want to do. At the end there seems to be a conflict between Nikita and Alex. My vote is 9/10.
