Exclusive First Look Video: Watch Nikita's (Deadly?) Fight With Amanda!

Warning: The following exclusive clip from Friday’s Nikita (8/7c, The CW) may cause uncontrollable gasps, dropping jaws and an all-around renewed love for the spy thriller — which definitely dares to go there this week.

As TVLine previously reported, the episode “Power” finally pits Amanda and Nikita against one another in a knock-down-drag-out fight — and now we have your first look at the balls-to-the-wall badass brawl. There’s punching, a nod to Wonder Woman’s lasso and a shocking cliffhanger ending.

Press PLAY below to watch the women duke it out — and don’t say we didn’t warn you!

    There is no better show on CW than Nikita without Nikita the CW is absolutely nothing and i wouldn’t look at it at all

    • Gwen says:

      Agree. Nikita is the only show we watch on the CW.

    • ndavika says:

      Yes to this…x10000000

    • Anna says:

      I never considered watching CW network (thought it was for kids) until I randomly came across a favorable review about Nikita in NYT. Decided to check it out and have been impressed, hooked ever since. Its such a great, rollercoaster ride of a show. I hope more people take a chance and watch.

    • BHM1304 says:

      They put their best show with their best actresses on Friday night and wonder why a show that has been this outstanding in its Sophomore season struggles. It boggles the mind. If they cancel this show and give another life to “90210” and “Gossip Girl” it will signal the end of the CW project.

    • Alexis says:

      Perfect first comment. The CW does not even deserve a show as brilliant as Nikita. If they do cancel it I hope another network will pick it up! Nikita cannot die!

  2. Damn. Amanda has to die now. No way she gets away with doing that to Nikita….

  3. Jaime says:

    yes. YES. YES! Can’t wait till Friday! Thanks Megan.

  4. Jenna says:

    They just leaked AMANDA will die right after that.Michael will shoot AManda in the back.!!!!

  5. I was just kidding about Amanda having to die, Craig…..

  6. ndavika says:

    Okay I know Nikita can’t die (the show is called Nikita after all) but that clip definitely makes me really nervous! Poor Nikita, how many cracked ribs do you think were up to now via bullets hitting kevlar? God I can’t wait for Friday! And C2E2 with MAGGIE Q after that! There’s better be a season 3 announcement asap after that CW! Thanks for posting Meg, awesome clip!

  7. Gabriela says:

    whaaa…first owen is not returning..now amanda might die??? these budget cuts better be worth it!!..if it means season 3 then fine..but if nikita is cancelled anyways..this might be the worst thing ever!!..melinda clark is such an awesome actress…

  8. Nikita is an AMAZING show. I really hope the CW gives it another season.

  9. W says:

    CW please renew Nikita! I wish more people with Nielsen boxes would watch it.

  10. BOMERFAN says:

    Nikita the only thing CW has to offer

  11. M says:

    This is it Michael has to kill amanda to protect nikita. Cw renew Nikita by far the best show you got. Bye Amanda you will be missed

  12. Natalie says:

    Can’t wait to see this! Thanks for the sneak peek. :)

  13. Sid says:

    I was hoping they’d kill Percy off instead of Amanda. I never liked her character as much until I saw that really dark/intense episode when she had captured Birkhoff and almost fried his brain with that crazy procedure.

    She truly is a psychopath and I love watching her!

  14. May says:

    CW please renew Nikita! Is the best show ever! Maggie Q is perfect as Nikita.

  15. Val says:

    Is this really the end of Amanda for the season/series? :( It seems like they’ve been building up to it, but Amanda is just amazing! Although Michael or that girl Amanda strangled looks like they’ll be there to save the moment.

    On a sidenote, should we all start campaigning for “Nikita on Netflix/DirecTV” for a future renewal? It boggles my mind how total viewership numbers are lower than the L.A. population for a show with effortless production values and writing/pacing.

  16. rich says:

    Niki!!! renew season 3!!! yes the best–Nikita

  17. Tina says:

    Nooooo, i like Amanda!!!I love watching her!

  18. nikita59 says:

    je suis un grand fan francais de la serie et nikita merite vraiment une saison 3 cette serie est genial je ne pense pas que amanda va mourir dans cette episode

  19. Jake says:

    I totally agree…TVD sucks such a waste of time I stopped watching this season it’s totally friggin Vampires gone emo..PATHETIC..NIKITA rocks…I hope it gets renewed.

  20. Mh says:

    Nikita is the only good thing that the cw has. If they decide to end it and yet give another season to GG, 90210, RINGER, ANTM, I WILL NO LONGER WATCH ANY OF THE CW SHOWS. That being said this episode looks great. And let all watch it live

  21. The fact Nikita’s budget is being heavily reduced and they are still able to pull off a high quality show speaks volumes. Do not cancel this show CW! Invest in Nikita’s future!

  22. Mikael says:

    I’d rather they kill off Percy than Amanda. But oh well, I just want a season 3! I’m sure CW will put that new Green Arrow show on Fridays to be the new Smallville with Supernatural, so Nikita should be renewed and moved to a different night! It could be paired with Ringer, which I know doesn’t do well in ratings, but Ringer and Nikita bring in a new demographic to the CW that should be encouraged! CW should not be all Gossip Girl/90210/One Tree Hill crap all the time! RENEW NIKITA!

  23. Mary says:

    She’s fought Xena, Callisto, and Gabrielle, did you really think Nikita was going to be a match for her?

  24. Charlene says:

    pls pls renew nikita!!!! BEST SHOW ON TV <3 <3 LOVE IT 4EVER !! give it a 3rd seasonn its amazinng!! xxxx =))

  25. Jasmine says:

    I still remember I was at the beach when this helicopter came down low with a women wearing a red swimsuit (like Nikita in season 1) and said tune to CW on Thursday for the premier of Nikita September 9. I did…. Ever since then I haven’t missed an epi. NIKITA IS MY WORLD CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT IT PLZPLZPLZPLZ RENEW NIKITA FOR A SEASON 3:);)

  30. Victoria says:

    They aren’t going to kill off Amanda just yet. Her character has the highest ratings within the whole show … she has higher ratings than Nikita herself … In an interview with Maggie Q, Maggie says that this episode shows the more human side of the cold hearted Amanda. Maggie says that Amanda says:”You really hurt me. I gave you everthing, and this is what you do to me…” I didn’t see her say that in the clip, did any of you? Chances are that Amanda’s emotions will get the better of her. Plus I don’t think that the writers would put a clip like that out and make it so predictable as to what would happen next. Nikita was wearing a vest, I am sure she will be fine :) She has more lives than a cat. Also, why is the fact that Percy takes control of Divison again being left in the dark? That is pretty much the only thing that is confusing me so much.

    Renew nikita

  32. Ryan says:

    Nikita is a great show. Cw need to renew nikita for more seasons. Great actors,great action scenes,great storylines
