I was watching the first five minutes of Nikita today with only minor interest.
As you may or may not recall, the series revolves around an ex-assassin named Nikita who is trying to take down a rouge black-ops group called Division. Her partner, Alex, is undercover on the inside posing as a Division recruit.
Today in Division training, Alex was practicing close-range combat – basically laser tag, but meant to prepare you for something a lot more dangerous – with two other recruits, Sarah and Robbie. Robbie was your typical tough-looking army recruit type; talks tough, kind of a jerk. I didn’t take much notice.
Then about the time the simulation ended, the guns went away, and the camera settled in more stably on Robbie’s face … I was suddenly hit with the strangest realization.
Wait a minute, I know that face.
