The most recent episode available on Hulu finds Boy Scout (Shawn) teamed up with Alexendra, Nikita and Michael because Percy's goons are striking the group that runs Division -- a group that includes Shawn's mother.
His mother's left her cell open so they can hear what's happening. The plan is to kill Division if Percy isn't released. Actually, Percy's goons will kill Division regardless. So it's Alex's job to go to Division and thwart that plan while Nikita, Michael and Shawn go to the house in DC where Shawn's mother and other members of Oversight are being held hostage.
Alex manages to save Division but is tracked by the Scar Faced Guy. (At the end of season one, he thought he killed Nikita. She wasn't dead. When she came back, she threw acid at him to get away and that scarred his face.) He tries to kill her but she locks herself in the cell Percy had been held in.
Percy ends up at the house. Michael, Nikita and Shawn grab him, put him on the phone with his goons inside the house and tell him to tell them it's over. Instead he tells them to shoot everyone but Shawn's mother.
Amanda finds Alex in the cell and releases her. She tells her they need to let the world know that Alexandra is alive to take back over her family's company. In reality, Amanda's working with her Russian spy counterparts.
And she's how they end up at the DC house as well.
Nikita goes in. And I'm guessing it was Russian goons that almost shot her when the senator gave her a heads up.
So now Percy is on the loose. The senator calls Amanda and tells her that Division will need to lay low and Amanda tells her Division is not listening to Oversight anymore.
The senator shares that with Nikita and company.
Now this is from Bill Van Auken's WSWS piece on Special Ops:
The “tide of war is receding” is a phrase President Barack Obama has employed ad nauseam—once in his State of the Union address, twice in the course of remarks last month at the unveiling of the Pentagon's new military strategy document, once again during his speech at the United Nations, also in his announcement of troop withdrawals from Iraq and Afghanistan, and in a Veteran's Day address.
The constant repetition of this hackneyed metaphor is aimed at obscuring the obvious—that US militarism has escalated dramatically under the Democratic president and its tide threatens to engulf the entire planet.
Among the latest indications is a behind-the-scenes campaign by the chief of the US military's Special Operations Command (SOCOM) for greater autonomy in dispatching elite killer squads to every corner of the globe.
Adm. William McRaven, who heads SOCOM, is, according to the New York Times, seeking “more autonomy to position his forces and their war-fighting equipment where intelligence and global events indicate they are most needed.”
