** Birkhoff has a verbal one over the phone when Alex accidentally runs into Roan in [=S02E13=], when Alex is in the middle of [[spoiler:trying to get to the bottom of Division to shut down the gas dispersal system that would kill everybody inside]]. Alex, upon seeing him, has one herself. Then Birkhoff gets another one when Alex [[spoiler:tells him that she escaped (calling Roan "the Terminator") but Roan is chasing her]]. Roan just seems to pick these up any time he runs into one of the main characters.

* RealityEnsues: When a terrorist holds Division up for $5 million dollars for information in the third season, Nikita and Michael figure they can just pay him as they're used to that being chump change for the company. However, Ryan has to break it to them that the reason Division was flush with cash before was all the illegal dealings Percy was running. Now, they're on a government budget which means "we barely have enough to keep the lights on."

* FeministFantasy: The show features two women as the main heroes in season 1 and in seasons 3 and 4 the primary antagonist is a woman. The titular character is considered among the most dangerous characters in the series. When most male division agents run into her it doesn't end well for them.

* WasItAllaLie: Inverted because the main character of Alex is set up to be the mole from the very start, and we see it all from her point of view. Rather than the hero being the one betrayed by the mole and yell-asking "was it all a lie?!" toward the mole, the hero ''is'' the mole. There is a very dramatic "Was everything just a lie?!" moment coming from the more minor character, Thom, directed at the main character of Alex mid-way through the first season - it is a very intense scene that does involve a gun and is perfect fodder for a mid-season finale with a lot of drama.
