Huh. I completely glossed over that. In the very early scene where Alex wakes up in a Division facility and Michael is talking to her:
: "Why? Why me?"Michael
: "Because you're a young, attractive white female with virtually no personal ties or paper trail. Now, those do exist, but they're, hard to come by. What really grabbed our attention, though, is how you managed to kill a criminal that we were about to take out."
(Alex bolts for the door, Michael grabs her).Michae
l: "His name was Kyle, by the way, he was part of a smuggling ring."
I thought he was a random, innocent janitor (wearing blue coveralls with a pin-on name tag reading "T. Tolchuck"); foolishly heroic, perhaps, but innocent. I suppose that if he was a dangerous criminal it makes his bold move of grabbing Alex's shotgun easier to understand, but it makes the fact that he didn't instantly turn and kill her armed accomplice less understandable. It does make me feel better about them killing him
It make more sense now--Nikita knew exactly what they were looking for in recruits, created an attractive-to-Division backstory for Alex and dangled her in their faces. Of course, they still might not have taken the bait, but it's a much better gamble.
: "I didn't kill no one. It was Ronnie!"Michael
: "Your boyfriend's body was found next to his apartment, dead from an overdose."
If Nikita was her accomplice, whose body did they find?
