Mikita is happening. Get excited, people! If there’s one thing Nikita knows how to do, it’s cliffhangers. And last week’s episode was the last new episode until April where we were all left with a huge cliffhanger. Maggie Q (Nikita) gives us a little preview of the upcoming exploration of Mikita.
“What I really like on an emotional level about the next episode is that you’re going to see a new side to Michael and Nikita and their relationship you’ve never seen before. And you’re going to see a type of vulnerability from the both of them that they don’t really ever have around anyone else but each other,” says Q. “And it’s not only what you’ve never seen it before, you’re going to understand where it comes from and a lot of the source of the pain as to why they’ve been at odds.” she continues.
But as the show starts getting deeper and deeper into the pair’s story, she teases, there could start to be cracks in Nikita’s strong persona. “You’re going to see Nikita shift a bit when Michael’s in the room and shift when Michael’s around because he provides a presence for her that she doesn’t have with anyone else. I think that at the end of the next episode, everything that they’re going to go through — and there’s a lot — I think it’s going to be a sad thing for people. Then I think that after the sadness, there may be hope out of a dark place.” adds Q.
As for Alex, last episode she wanted to leave. But that will definitely affect Nikita’s agenda since she won’t have her mole anymore. “I think the last episode was the introduction to what the real game changer is. The real game changer is the next episode. There’s so much emotion and depth in the next episode, you’re going to see two people balls out, and you’ll understand them so much more as people. Forgetting the action, this episode gets into who they are as people, and it will effect people. The next episode will pick up where the last left off with Michael in Nikita, but it will start with something else; something happy. You’ll also see Nikita vulnerable like you never have before, and it’s really sad.” explains Q.
Looks like the next episode airing April 7 will be an intense one! Thoughts?
