In Season 2 of Nikita, Alex is working alongside Division — but that doesn’t mean that she and Nikita will remain adversaries.
Even if Nikita did break her arm and shoot her in the leg. Bygones! “I think there was a lot of worry this season about ‘Oh my God, Alex is turning evil, Alex is on the bad side,’ and it’s really not that at all,” Lyndsy Fonseca tells TVGuide.com. “It’s kind of the unfortunate situation they’re in right now. There’s still a lot of love, there’s still a lot of hate. There are moments in the next few episodes where Nikita tries to help Alex, and there’s moments where Alex warns Nikita about things.”
Alex also has more urgent matters on her mind besides Nikita (Maggie Q). Finding out more about how her parents died has lit Alex’s vengeance-seeking fires, and in Friday’s episode (8/7c on The CW), she takes another calculated step toward reclaiming her birthright, her father’s company, Zetrov. “She tries to get the spokesman, the public figure of Zetrov, from a lead that Amanda has given her,” says Fonseca. “She’s kind of playing a part, pretending to be somebody else. It’s definitely progress, but unfortunately there’s a huge consequence to be paid when she does try and get this guy.”
