E & A
Section jargon for egress and access, two vital elements in a mission profile.
several episodes
A communication frequency used by Nikita in "Walk On By."
"Walk On By"
A term used in mission profiling that refers to the departure by an operative or team from a building or area, or the specific plans for that departure. A "secondary egress" is also often part of a profile; Michael asks Andrea Kosov about one in "Off Profile." (See Exit Corridor.)
various episodes
Exiled former head of the Temro Yugoslavian death squad whose plan to return to the Balkans and destabilize the region comes to Section One's attention. Played by Daniel Yuval.

Elena Samuelle (nee Vacek) is Michael's wife and Adam's mother, and is introduced in "Looking for Michael." Michael has married her and led a double life outside Section for a number of years as part of a "blood cover" mission to locate and terminate Salla Vacek, the elusive multi-millionaire who finances anti-Western terrorist activities. In "Opening Night Jitters," Michael must give Elena a poison that sends her to the hospital and flushes Vacek out into the open. Vacek is killed, and Michael's death is staged. In "Kiss the Past Goodbye," a valentine op named Corliss is told to get close to Elena in order to trap Salla's brother, Stefan Vacek, and Michael disobeys orders to protect both Elena and his son. We learn in Season Five that Elena was killed in an auto accident, and Adam was placed with in a foster home. Played by Samia Shoaib.

A program or platform that will interface with and ecrypt (or decode) a database.
"Hard Landing"

 Not so much a band as a project created by Michael Cretu, whose music has been described as a blend of traditional elements (like Gregorian chants) with modern dance rhythms. "Beyond the Invisible" is Track 2 of the La Femme Nikita: Music from the Television Series soundtrack.
A green-listed supplier, until he tries to doublecross Section One and sell a supply of Semtex to Tomas Bocci. Enquist abducts Madeline in an attempt to keep Section at bay, but it doesn't work -- Michael tracks him down and kills him. Played by Gregory Hlady.
"Mandatory Refusal"
A friend of Danielle's, Erica is a prostitute murdered by Formitz. Nikita finds her body at Formitz's place.
"Old Habits"
When too many innocents will be -- or have been -- killed during a Section One mission. (See acceptable collateral.) This situation occurred in "Gambit."
The precise route by which an operative or team is to accomplish egress from a building or area during a mission. There is sometimes a secondary or backup exit corridor already specified in a mission profile; if not, "tactical support" (which usually includes Birkoff) is called upon to find one if the primary exit corridor is blocked.
several episodes
When an operative or mission is visible to the public or to the enemy, which is not a good thing in most scenarios.
several episodes
Euphemism for "kill." Roberta Wirth faced extreme action if her efforts to locate her daughter Nikita were discovered by Section One. (See cancel.)
"Walk On By"
An eye movement analysis like the one Michael tells Birkoff to run on Nikita in "Getting Out of Reverse" uses the cutting edge of optomechanic technology to determine, in short, an individual's state of mind. It has been demonstrated that eye movement is related to psychological orientation. A program called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is actually used to detect the existence (and extent) of post-traumatic stress disorder and other dysfunctionally stored experiences.
