All That We Leave Behind
Timeline spoiler: This story takes place after the S4 episode He Came From Four and does its best to ignore everything that happened afterwards in the actual show, being nothing less and nothing more than my attempt to create an LFN finale that I might like better than the real which, in my humble opinion, S*CKED BIG TIME.
AU story, sorta of!
I’d die for feed-back!!!

~ Phil Collins’s Another Day In Paradise playing ~
Nikita is walking in the streets of a big city, it looks European, but the audience can’t tell which one. She is wearing sun glasses. Then, she suddenly comes to a stop in front of a flower shop. She looks briefly at her watch, stops by a light post and waits, her eyes fixed on the shop’s front door. Camera moves to show us what Nikita sees. A dark-haired woman gets out of the shop smiling, turns to say something to somebody in the shop, then proceeds down the street. The woman is Roberta, Nikita’s mother. Nikita prepares to folow her when her cell phone rings. She frowns, but replies.
(in the phone)
Nikita hangs up the phone and turns around.
LFN Opening Credits
Nikita walks past Munitions, Walter is inside bent over his magnifying glass. He notices her and walks after her.
Nikita turns around and gives him a small, preoccupied smile.
You OK, beautiful? You seem rather out of it lately.
(small, genuine smile)
Yeah, Walter, I’m fine.
Nikita walks away. Off Walter who looks concerned.
Section1, War Room - Briefing:
Operatives gather around the table. Among a few unknow, there are also Michael, Nikita, Birkoff, Davenport and Walter. Madeline and Operations arrive, shoulder to shoulder and perfectly composed, as usual. Madeline gracefully sits in her chair while Operation picks the remote control.
This is Austin Carroway (The hologram screen shows the picture and the profile of the man), former professor of behaviour science at the Harvard University from where he was fired for performing illegal experiments. As a result, he turned on training assassins for a job. Almost five years ago, he created an organization called ‘The Fundation’ which recrutes troubled teen-agers and turns them into very skilled assassins who are later employed by terrorist organizations.
‘Looks like a terrorist version of Section1 to me.
Operations gives Nikita a very strict look. Camera to Madeline who slightly frowns. A tense, silent moment follows, the Birkoff continues where Operations has left off.
Their latest target was a the peruvian ambassador to UN, well-known for his speeches against the anarchist groups in his country.
Unfortunately, so far, all attempts of infiltration in ‘The Fundation’ have failed. So, our attention shifted to Carroway, himself. Recent intel suggests that he has a mistress in Mexico. (punches a button on the remote, the imagine shifts to show a woman.) Karicia Montesino, psychologist, currently residing in Veracruz. Carroway visits her twice a month or rarely, always without a notice. Our objective is to establish a connection with Ms. Montesino and get to Carroway during one of his dates with her, when he’ll be most vulnerable. Infiltration teem includes Nikita and Madeline. (pauses to give Nikita a warnig look) Michael’s handling tactical. The rest of you will get the profiles from Birkoff. Just so you all understand, this mission is top priority. That will be all.
Operatives raise to leave, Madeline and Operations stay behind. When everybody else have left, Madeline goes to Operations’s side.
George wants Carroway alive.
Yes. My source at the Oversight confirmed our suspisions, this morning. George wants to see if we can use him to write training programs for Section operatives.
I don’t like it. What do we know about this man’s methods?
They start off together.
Not much. Just that he uses fanatic indoctrination, complete isolation of all positive stimuli combined with extensive stimulation of violent instincts and sometimes, lobotomy.
And the results?
Extremely violent individuals, incapacitated of taking other decisions than their given order, incapable of emotions or of communicating themselves. Terrorists organizations usually use them for one mission, then their order to commit suicide.
They make it to the Perch where they stop by a far end, one in front of the other.
Do you think any of the Sections needs something like this?
(looks directly into his eyes, but doesnt’s give any reply)
The mission leaves in eight hours. I have to go and prepare Nikita.
(nods “of course”)
Just one more aspect. Your reports indicate Nikita a bit edgy lately. How do you think she’ll handle this?
I’ll be there to make sure she handles it just fine.
They smile at each other, then Madeline leaves. Camera to Operations: he looks troubled.
