The second episode of this season deals with teamwork involving Nikita, Michael, Birkhoff, and Owen when they were investigating an old mission involving hypnotic trances that cause people to assassinate under mind control against political figures. Despite the teamwork, Birkhoff really stole the episode when he tries to rescue the girl who was under the hypnotic trance. After he befriended her, another hypnotic trance caused her to lose her memories. Meanwhile, Alex seems to be extraneously involved as she hesitated to shoot Nikita when she had her in her sights, but the people of Oversight don’t seem to trust her as they give her advice whether she wants it or not. This was an okay episode, but not as great as the premiere.
