The CW has released the synopsis for Nikita‘s first episode of 2013, titled “Intersection.”

The official press release has the following information about the episode:

BIRKHOFF TELLS NIKITA ABOUT SONYA — Birkhoff (Aaron Stanford) tells Nikita (Maggie Q) that Sonya (guest star Lyndie Greenwood) is Amanda’s (Melinda Clarke) mole and not only has Amanda reactivated Sonya’s kill chip but she also placed a second mole in Division to keep an eye on her. Nikita, Michael (Shane West) and Ryan (Noah Bean) devise a plan to use Sonya to ferret out Amanda’s hiding place and Birkhoff sets a trap for the second mole. Meanwhile, Michael confronts Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) about her drug use and she begs him not to tell Nikita. Dwight Little directed the episode written by Michael Brandon Guercio (#307).

In the mid-season finale, Nikita and Michael dealt with a rogue Division agent, Cyrus, who was supplying weapons for Amanda while Birkhoff continued his hunt for Amanda’s mole. Nikita eventually turned Cyrus to her side and Ryan reinstated his position as a Divison asset.

Meanwhile, Birkhoff discovered that Sonya was the mole but promised to help her escape Amanda’s clutches when she revealed that she was under duress – and it looks like the next episode will continue this storyline.

“Intersection” will be the seventh episode of Nikita‘s third season.
