Section goes after Ivan Chernov, a terrorist who trains kidnapped children to do his dirty work. Michael sells Nikita to Chernov, who she discovers wants her for cloning experiments. Birkoff finds his life threatened by Felix, an abeyance operative who is extremely upset about being in abeyance. After returning to Section, a comment from Madeline makes Nikita think that Section might also be doing cloning. After some investigating, she discovers a room full of children, one of which looks identical to herself as a child. When she returns with Michael a while later, the room is mysteriously empty.
