There’s three episodes left in “Nikita’s” second season, and the action is really ramping up. I’m particularly excited about this episode, “Dead Drop” (2.21), because Ryan is back! He’s ready to take his place on Team Nikita and do what he does best. This episode is also supposed to push Alex in a dramatic direction in terms of her love life.
There were no clips or producer’s previews released this week, but we do know that Percy is moving forward with his deadly nuclear plan and Team Nikita must stop him. That’s going to involve some conflicts within the team, some double crossing, and a little drama when one of their own is injured. Oh, for you guys, did I mention Maggie Q in a skimpy swim suit? Yes, that’s the sound of me pouting that Michael is fully clothed in that pool.
Here’s the official CW synopsis of “Dead Drop”:
When it looks like Percy’s (Xander Berkeley) nuclear weapons plan is getting out of control, Ryan (guest star Noah Bean) suggests they go to the Director of the CIA, Morgan Kendrick (guest star Brian Howe), for help. Nikita (Maggie Q) is vehemently opposed to the plan and is surprised when Michael (Shane West) takes Ryan’s side. Tensions escalate when Nikita is proven right after they discover Kendrick has a link to Percy. Meanwhile, Sean (Dillon Casey) is shot by Percy’s men, shaking Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) to the core. Aaron Stanford also stars. Michael Robison directed the episode written by Kalinda Vazquez.
Nikita airs tonight at 8pm on The CW.
