'Nikita' scoop: Michael and Nikita get closer, Alex graduates, and someone will finally have sex!
The agents on The CW’s Nikita aren’t the only folks who are able to obtain top-secret information. EW has infiltrated the show’s production office (or maybe just talked to executive producer Craig Silverstein) and has tons of juicy info on the action series’ upcoming plotlines. SPOILER ALERT! Look for Lyndsy Fonseca’s Alex to finally get out of Division’s lair. “Alex will be graduating from recruit to full Division agent, but it will come at a terrible cost,” says Silverstein. “After our winter break hiatus, there will be a major shift in the show as Nikita and Alex will be working together on the OUTSIDE. No more recruit pajamas! No more Stephen Hawking computer voice! Like Nikita before her, Alex will be out in the real world, with her own apartment, wardrobe, and car.” Also, Alex will be getting a new potential love interest in the form of soap star Thad Luckinbill, who actually played Fonseca’s love interest years ago on The Young and the Restless. Luckinbill’s first appearance will be on the Jan. 27 episode. Also popping up in a guest role, look for Roswell‘s Brendan Fehr in February.
Meanwhile, we’ll get to know a little more about Alex’s mentor Nikita (Maggie Q). Says Silverstein, “We will reveal the location and origin of Nikita’s lair, and yes — we’ll learn where she got all her ‘money.’ It may not be as much as you think… ” Plus, “Nikita and Michael’s relationship will take another turn, bringing them closer in an unexpected way.”
And, perhaps the most exciting plot point we were able to get out of Silverstein: “There will be sex. On this show. Finally.”
