During a routine assignment, Nikita saves an attractive man, Alec Chandler, from being hit by a car. When he asks her on a date, she declines but gives him information about where she works so he can send her a present. Nikita learns that the near-accident was staged by Section One so that Nikita could gain information about Alec's criminal activities. Michael informs Nikita that Alec is a slave trader who sells children around the world--not a money launderer as she was first told. Nikita exposes Alec's operation, saving a group of helpless children from a horrible fate. But Michael, who is becoming attracted to Nikita, will never know if Nikita ever made love to Alec.
