Having gone on a bit of a Nikita scoopfest in recent weeks, TVLine has decided to keep things simple in this Season 2 preview: Just a few fun facts and must-see moments from Friday’s premiere (8/7c, The CW).
Some are silly (Michael’s new ‘do) and some game-changing (an extremely unfortunate shootout), but if it’s a scene you shouldn’t miss, you can bet it’s included on our rundown.
Mikita Meltdown – There’s a breakup in the first five minutes — gasp! — but don’t fret. It’s possible it’s all just a ruse while Michael (Shane West) and Nikita (Maggie Q) are on an undercover mission…
Alex’s New Frenemy – Oversight’s new agent Sean Pierce (played by Dillon Casey) makes a terrible first impression on, well, everyone. Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) and Amanda (Melinda Clarke) are particularly peeved by the “rules man,” who makes it clear that he’s only around to reclaim the black boxes from Nikita by any means necessary. It’s hard to like the newbie at first, but Casey’s rugged good looks do help. Plus, his introductory scene allows the audience to see just how self-sufficient Alex has become.
