Consequences is the fourth episode of Season Three and the forty-ninth episode overall.
OWEN RETURNS! — Amanda (Melinda Clarke) sends a rogue Division agent, Anne (guest star Sarah Allen) to spring Owen (Devon Sawa) from a Russian prison, but Owen manages to escape her clutches and sends a message to Nikita (Maggie Q) that he’s free. When Nikita tracks him down, Owen is shocked to learn that Nikita is with Division now but returns to base with her. Michael (Shane West) and Ryan (Noah Bean) aren’t sure they can trust Owen but Nikita stands by her friend.
- Consequences can be seen as the continuation of a major store arch beginning with Dark Matter. In Dark Matter Owen teams of with Nikita. Both Ryan Fletcher and The Engineer are introduced. Nikita talks to Owen about his consequences which he alludes to in the episode. And this when Birkhoff becomes the new Black Box Engineer after the former one is killed by Percy in front of him.
