TV Guide gave the fans of ‘Nikita’ an abundant display of spoilers for the upcoming season 3. Check them out below!
The Avengers family:
“This season’s theme is ‘family,’” Silverstein said. “They’ve got their home now, and … it’s about seeing that family grow strong and start to fracture.
After all, CIA agent Ryan Fletcher (Noah Bean) is the new head of Division, and Nikita now has to take orders. “She’s never been good at that,” Silverstein added. “So, she and Ryan go head-to-head in the first episode because things get screwed up in Hong Kong and she ends up going her own way. The problem is, she’s the kind of girl who could drive a Mack truck through a wall to get what she needed to do done. Now, there are consequences and all kinds of people in the organization that could suffer as a result of that.”
A Division makeover:
“The government dropped some dough for some [renovations],” Q said. “The bones of it are the same, but they’ve made it a little more people-friendly. You won’t see recruits training anymore.” Silverstein added, “There will be changes and upgrades and new toys … Birkhoff has a new setup … He’s got a man cave.”
In the premiere, the former rogue spy is no longer on the run and unwinds with a bit of yoga. “She’s allowed more privilege than she’s ever had,” Q said. “She’s not looking over her shoulder anymore. She’s able to have a dinner, go for a walk, be in a coffee shop and that’s never happened for her.” She better not get too complacent though. Percy’s old pal Amanda (Melinda Clarke) is still at large.
Michael’s awesome adventure:
Shane West hinted at big drama coming for his character Michael, whom he deems as “more of a husband” last season.
“Mikita” forecast: Showers possible:
Michael and Nikita will be going strong romantically when the show returns, but “something’s going to happen in the first episode you’re never going to expect to happen,” Q said, adding, “No one’s pregnant; it’s fine. Slowly into this season … there are going to be some obstacles that neither of them have created.”
Alex, she’s just like us! “She’s going to use her celebrity to kind of be a decoy to what they’re really doing. I don’t know how long that’s going to be able to last, though. Alex is going to be persuaded by other people, maybe in the wrong direction. She’s going to be really, really confused for a little bit as far as her loyalty to Nikita, and coming into her own and what Amanda has to say about it all.” Added Alex’s portrayer Lyndsy Fonseca
Like her mentor Nikita, Alex has also found love in the same line of work. Agent Sean Pierce (Dillon Casey) is as goofy as he is dedicated, but their romance is still relatively new.
Birkhoff butting heads:
“There is something happening with Birkhoff and Sonya where they left it with the kiss,” Stanford said. There’s been a little bit of a time jump and things have gotten complicated between them. … There’s going to be a bit of a power struggle between him and Sonya because Sonya headed up all the tech when he wasn’t there.
This year, Amanda will do her best to rectify that lapse in judgment. “We should assume that she is now in exile, as the rogues now have control of the asylum,” Clarke said. “Amanda is going to a deeper, darker place.
The problem with Owen:
Owen (Devon Sawa) is back as a regular character this year, given that his skills as a former Division cleaner are well-suited to tracking down the Dirty Thirty. “We’re going to answer the question of what happened to him,” Silverstein promised.
An appointment with death(s):
“Yeah, people are going to die,” Silverstein said. “As big as Percy? Yeah, I think some stuff will feel pretty good. Some people are going to be changed in a way that feels pretty good.”
Nikita season 3 premieres Oct. 19th, Friday on the CW.
