"The New Division"
At the end of season two , Percy was finally deposed (and bloodily dispatched) by Nikita. CIA analyst Ryan Fletcher had been tasked with running Division in his place - an assignment which he agreed to only if Nikita could work with him in rehabilitating the agency's operatives and tracking down the rogue assassins still on the loose.
