Alex has a plan and fast forward to present day and Alex walks up to Jaden. She tells that she wants a sparing partner and that she would make a good one. Jaden tells her to get away but Alex decks her in the face. This causes Jaden to fight back and push Alex against the glass wall where she can see the next target that Division wants. Later in the tech room, she tells Nikita that the name is Jill Morelli. At the same moment, Jeremy, main editor of “The Post”, comes out and walks into a car park and he loses signal on his phone.
