First Look: Nikita Is Taken Captive and Tortured - But Someone Else Is On 'the Brink of Death'!

Nikita resumes its fearless sophomore run this Friday at 8/7c, and we’ve got a first look at the spy thriller’s jaw-dropping new installment.

Per The CW’s official description of the episode (which is just too juicy not to include in its entirety), “When Nikita worked for Division, she targeted a man named Nicholas Brandt (guest star Rick Ravanello) and infiltrated his inner circle. She captured him and he’s been behind bars ever since. However, Percy springs Brant, and his first mission is to capture Nikita for payback. After he has her in his clutches, he tortures her, forcing Nikita to face a side of herself she thought she had long buried.”

    The bad guy is kinda hot. I still wonder why Nikita has lower ratings than sh*t like TSC.

    • dude says:

      It’s because the show skews to older men. Nikita gets better voerall ratings than a lot of CW shows but it’s the target demo where it does poorly.

    • Josh says:

      Nikita is not submissive and weak enough for most CW viewers. They want a girl who needs to be taken care of by a man. Given that Nikita saves her man more often then he saves her, it bothers them and ruins their fantasies. They don’t want a kickass girl to admire, they want an almost abusive male who controls the woman but saves her to crush on.

      Sad times.

    • natalie says:

      it’s because its on the wrong timeslot. It airs on friday night and usually thats when everyone goes out and is forced to watch it online

  2. Tina says:

    I think that Michael will be the one who almost dies. I think he sacrifices himself to save Nikita>

  3. Jaime says:

    I’ve been waiting for this episode! (Shaking fist at CW for the crazy schedule breaks)

  4. Olivia says:

    If this gets cancelled and 90210 gets renewed, I will lose all faith in humanity.

  5. bad kevin says:

    Nikita has really taking some sort of rip-off of 24 and this series is becoming “pure torture”. If it gets renewed for a third season, the CW would be tortured for life. :-(

  7. Mary says:

    Joel Surnow was co-creater and executive producer of the original La Femme Nikita TV Series in 1997 and from there went on to co-create ’24’, so actually ’24’ was the rip-off. Love this show and hope it gets a season 3!

  8. Lisa says:

    If Nikita is not renewed for a third season, I will have no other choice but never to turn on my t.v. ever again – since there’s no other shows I enjoy enough to turn on my t.v. every week. A lot of the shows they keep renewing are getting “old” – storylines just keep dragging on and a lot of them don’t even have interesting plots or characters like Nikita does. I find the actors and scriptwriters on this show are all doing an amazing job. We need more shows like this with a strong female lead. I think the show would probably do better if it were in a different time slot though, and possibly on a different network.

    • natalie says:

      I know!! if they get renewed for season 3 (AND PLEASE YESSS) they will have to change the timeslot! This show is ammazinggggggg andit is very popular worldwide!

    • May says:

      I totally agree with you! Nikita is an incredible series and I always thought it would be better off in another network.

    • davon says:

      This series is great!!

      Nikita got a low rating ‘coz it wasn’t aired the series continuously, viewers appetite has been lost because of the long delay of the next episode..

  9. Abigael says:

    I really can’t wait for this episode.It’ll be kinda cool to see Nikita in Danger this time and the others doing anything and everything to save her.Its always the other way around.Nikita is the best show on tv right now and if it gets cancelled,I may as well never watch tv ever again.

  10. Adele says:

    The wait is killing me. Love this show!!!!!!

  11. llws says:

    As much as I love Nikita…I almost wish it wasn’t on the CW…that way it could be a lot more dirty and grittier…but I really hope it comes back for another season

    • arisa says:

      I agree. I keep waiting for it to get a little darker, it’s my opinion that I would lift the show to a whole other level. So please renew to give them the chance!

  12. Looking forward to this episode. I really hope Nikita gets renewed.

  13. BHM1304 says:

    This show has had one of best sophomore runs of any serialized show in a while. The three female leads Maggie Q, Lyndsey Fonseca, and Melinda Clarke are playing roles that the other crappy actresses on this network would die to be playing (women who aren’t victims or romantically challenged)and all three are fantastic. Xander Berkely is a veteran character actor and his “Percy” has to be one of his best and he appears also to be having a blast on this show. If there is any justice at all on television this little show deserves a third season. Its one gleam of hope is that it is on Friday and they are not going to put a new show on Friday. Its a good fit with “Supernatural” and its Friday home might be its saving grace.

    • juan says:

      I aggree… hot ladys ..real (smart)bad guys… great action…deserves aa 3rd season to show it’s (their) great legs.

  14. Adam says:

    This show is awesome and is by far better than half the shows the CW airs..including the overly moronic TVD and Ringer. At least the cast of Nikita can act I stopped watching Vamp Diaries this season because the acting is pathetic and it makes my eyes bleed.

  15. paige says:

    I cannot wiat for this next epsiode it has alex and sean scenes and mikita kiss hopefully <333 xxxxxxxxxxxxxx i just cant wiatttt i really hope it gets another season cause id die if it doesntt :////

  16. emma says:

    I am loving Alex and Sean cant wait for the next episode! I hope Nikita renewed this is one of the best shows the cw has I’ll be so upset if they cancel it! I would like to see it on a different night though I miss it on Thursdays!!!

  17. Nikita is very much one of the best shows on television out of ALL the networks. If we don’t get renewal confirmation on May 17th it will go down as one of the biggest television tragedies. The entire cast, crew, writers put their heart and soul into every episode. There are no filler episodes. Ever. Please CW give us renewal confirmation!

  18. Autumn says:

    I agree nikita needs to get a 3rd season, the cw just doean’t promote it enough like it does with vampire diaries and its freshmen shows. They need to take into consideration that its on friday night when most people go out. They NEED to renew it for 3rd season!!! I wish cw could see all the comments on here to see how much we love it. The cast and storylines are great!! If it doesn’t get renewed and the secret circle, hart of dixie, or 90210 does i will start a boycott against those shows. Can we do that bc i’m serious? This is the beat show ever. Please cw. I mean its half there fault if it doesn’t do good bc they dont promote it!

    • May says:

      I agree with you. I like vampire but they do not need one or more posters to each episode. The CW does not promote Nikita. How to have good numbers on Friday and no promotion?????

  19. May says:

    If canceled NEVER watch another show the CW. NEVER MORE!!!!!! NIKITA is the best show ever!!!

  20. KatieEMyles says:

    After hearing great things about the pilot of “Nikita,” I decided to give the show a try when it premiered. I’ve been hooked ever since, and the writing, acting, and production have remained solid over its two-season run. The twists maintain an element of intrigue and keep the characters challenged, but not in a superfluous way. Shrouding the characters—as well as Division—with a certain degree of mystery on the front end has allowed the writers to drive the story in a way that feels organic in spite of its inherent sensationalism. Beyond the guns and geekery (which alone often make for great television) are nuanced characters struggling to do what is right. Commitment to depicting this concept of “right”—in friendships, romances, families, and, yes, government agencies—as the multifaceted idea that it is gives “Nikita” the depth many other series lack.

  21. LJ says:

    Nikita is the only show on the CW I watch. I tried some of the others but none of them are as smartly written or as well acted and I lost interest in 2-3 episodes. It’s a shame the CW doesn’t promote this show – how do they expect it to find an audience when it’s hidden away? Definitely won’t be watching the CW anymore if they do cancel it.

  22. Selena says:

    NIKITA is by far one of the best shows I have seen in a long time. Why was it picked up by the CW-should have been USA since the other Nikita show was aired there. Just a thought……Maggie Q continues to mesmerize me as NIkita along with all the action and drama, this is on kick butt show. PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!!!! – Nikita needs to be renewed this coming May.

  23. M says:

    This show is a cartoon compared to the 90s Nikita series.
