Check out what Lyndsy Fonseca (Alex) has to say about the season 1 finale of Nikita!
“Yes, someone dies. Everything that happens in the finale is not just for the sake of killing people or for the sake of a good storyline. Stuff has been kind of brewing for a long time, and I think it’s going to be really emotional.”
Alex will be strapped onto that chair, again and the actress tells TV Guide,
“It’s really cool because you get to focus on the heart of the scene. There’s no action, there’s no moving around. You’re not hiding behind any movements. You’re just face-to-face with dialogue and the story that’s going on and what you want to portray.”
“Alex finds out a lot of information from Amanda about things she had no idea about. It’s done like, “Here’s what you don’t know, Alex, and now you make your own decision of where you want to go.”
?Alex goes rogue in this episode, Fonseca explains,
“Well, both Nikita and Alex have a personal connection to Division because Division killed Daniel and Division killed Alex’s family, right? But what shifts is that she discovers more specific information in her father’s death. Therefore, she goes rogue in a very different way.”
When Fonseca was asked about Alberta Watson’s character (Watson played Madeline on the series La Femme Nikita) she says,
“I can’t reveal her role, but her character is in a scene with Alex and Amanda.”
This is described as an “explosive” finale and she says,
“You can expect explosions both literally and figuratively. Maggie and I are definitely in a bit of a shootout, and there’s some pretty intense fire stuff going on that was really fun to film. We were running up staircases with machine guns and like five machine-gun guys following us. They created this huge explosion in the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto. It was really cool. We basically blew up their staircase.”
If Fonseca has to describe Alex’s transformation this season, she would say,
“I think the best way to describe it is going from a girl to a young woman. I think she found a lot of therapeutic advice through Nikita. I think she has faced things she had never thought she could face and I think she’s starting to take responsibility for who she is and where her family is from. For a long time she was struggling between the two, not wanting to really be herself. I think by the end of the season, she really faces it.”
Fonseca tells E!Online,
“Alex finds out some extremely devastating news. It completely shakes her up to her core—more than any other news probably that she’s ever heard. She’s faced with a very, very big decision, and we don’t really know what she’s going to do about it.”
As for other news, obviously, Nikita isn’t dead, but Alex faking her death does not mean a truce between the pair. What Nikita thought was right, in turning the black box over to the CIA, may turn out to be her undoing. Nathan won’t be in tonight’s episode but he isn’t the one that dies.
