NIKITA Season 3 Episode 1 3.0 Photos : NEW DIVISION. NEW LEADERSHIP — Ryan (Noah Bean) takes charge of Division with Nikita (Maggie Q) by his side. Their first mission under the new regime is to bring in “The Dirty Thirty,” the rogue agents who failed to respond to the Division recall after Percy was killed. Unfortunately, their first mission doesn’t go as planned and Michael (Shane West) is arrested, forcing Nikita to change gears and hatch an escape plan for him. Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) reprises her alter ego, the spoiled Russian princess Alexandra Udinov, in a very unique way as part of the plan to spring Michael. Meanwhile, Birkhoff (Aaron Stanford) struggles to maintain a working relationship with Sonya (guest star Lyndie Greenwood), despite his growing attraction to her. Eagle Egilsson directed the episode written by Craig Silverstein (#301).
