I actually wrote this last night, I just haven't published it till now 'cause I've been busy all day. I watched the episode yesterday, though, and the entire time I was waiting to see what Alex's reaction to Michael and Nikita would be.

"About Michael…," Nikita said, "I think we need to talk."

"What do you mean?" Alex asked.

"Well—" Nikita hesitated, trying to think of what to say. "He's on our side now."

"What?" Alex burst out in disbelief. After all this time, Nikita had finally got him over to them?

"Yeah. I'll tell you more about that when I see you."

"I can't believe this," Alex muttered, more to herself than to Nikita, but to Nikita as well.

"Also, he and I are…together," confessed Nikita.

A smile came onto Alex's face. "You are?" she asked, trying to sound as shocked as possible.


"Really?" she said, grinning.

Nikita frowned, confused. "What do you mean?"

"In a way, I'm not that surprised," Alex commented.

Nikita was speechless. "Right. Okay."
