Check out the official synopsis of episode 16 of Nikita‘s third season, titled “Tipping Point,” below.
The official press release has the following information about the episode:
A VIOLENT MUTINY ROCKS DIVISION — Nikita (Maggie Q) and Michael (Shane West) learn of a new prosthetic hand that could have Michael back to his old self, but it comes at a steep price. Meanwhile, Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) and Sean (Dillon Casey) are tasked with investigating who, inside Division, is behind a mutiny that ends in bloodshed. Aaron Stanford and Noah Bean also star. Dwight Little directed the episode written by Oliver Grigsby (#316).
News of a mutiny is particularly haunting in the wake of the previous episode, as the members of Team Nikita have started questioning each other’s actions and motivations. Ryan went behind Nikita’s and Michael’s backs to place a kill chip in Ari Tasarov, and Nikita is shocked when Michael, though angry at the deception, supports the move tactically.
Meanwhile, Alex has begun questioning Nikita again after Nikita prioritized a mission over rescuing an innocent bystander caught up in their war with Amanda. Sean is also jealous of Owen, who bonded with Alex on their last mission together. This tension leaves the group wide open to an attack from within.
“Tipping Point” airs Friday, April 5 at 8:00 p.m. ET.
