Nikita Cast Talks Season 3′s 'Ultimate Villain,' the Death that Has to Happen and More 'Mikita' Woes

When the Nikita cast (albeit minus a few newly promoted players) paid a visit to TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite, they wasted no time dishing out Season 3 intel — particularly the stuff you didn’t hear about during their scoop-filled panel held earlier this week.

Up first on the agenda was some chitchat about the CW spy thriller’s new “ultimate villain,” Amanda, who for now is alive and kickin’, but… perhaps not for much longer? All Melinda Clarke would share is that, “This show is designed for people to die; it will happen eventually. It has to.” (Cryptic, no?)

And what of that horrible “something” that showrunner Craig Silverstein recently revealed is going to happen to Michael — and thus Nikita, too? Here’s a hint from Shane West: It’s “gnarly.”

Press PLAY below to keep the Season 3 spoilers coming, with even more teases from Maggie Q, Lyndsy Fonseca, Aaron Stanford, West and Clarke.

  • Michael’s ‘Gnarly’ thing that happens to him…I predict he either gets seriously injured or does something stupid and gets sent to jail

  • I’m thinking an injury, too. Maybe he loses a limb or becomes paralyzed, which would make him feel like he’s useless and drive a wedge between him and Nikita…potentially opening up for a romance with newly-promoted Devon Sawa.

    • Sorry to burst your bubble, but Nikita/Owen is not going to happen as long as Shane and Maggie are on this show. It would destroy Nikita’s character and Maggie will not stand for that. He’ll simply be an ally, just like Ryan.

      • Oh, no bubble bursting here. I’m 100% Team Mikita — I could just see that storyline playing out.

    • Yeah I can definitely see the losing-a-limb scenario or something similar. Rather unrelated, but did anyone else notice the Lyndsy/Shane body language in this video??

      • You mean the non-existent body language, since Lyndsy has a boyfriend of 5 years back in Los Angeles?

        • I totally see it she is like leaning towards him and he is touching her with his knee. and she def does not have a boyfriend anymore they broke up a while ago

          • He’s not touching her with his knee and she’s not leaning towards him. Actually, they didn’t. Lyndsy’s actual friend who runs her official website is the one who knows whether they have broken up or not. Lyndsy and Matt are STILL together, you’re misinformed. I realize SL shippers love to hold onto this fantasy they’ll be together one day, but it’s not going to happen. Lyndsy is still very happy with her actual boyfriend of 5 years.

          • Lyndsy and Matt were just out together on July 3, there are about 3 popcandies of it on YouTube. You need to recheck your information.

      • OMG and Aaron knee is touching Melindas and he has his arm behind her back… what does it mean?
        RIDICULOUS!
        There is nothing between Shane et Lyndsy, nothing between Shane and Maggie and nothing between any of them. They are all close, they love each other like family, periode.

        • So that’s how it is in their family…

  • Maybe Michael has his own agenda…

    Comment by Ally – July 14, 2012 10:40 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Maybe they will Michael……. I hope not, but I can’t wait for season 3

  • I’m truly loving this show.

  • Maybe Michael loses his memory and with that his “connection” to Nikita.Or I dunno…if it’s nothing either of them created (as they said in previous interviews) then he must get seriously hurt, captured or …whatever…

  • when will season three finally get here? grrrr

  • Guess I Came To The Right Place, The Delusional Factory.

  • Am I the only one with the feeling that they really never thought a season 3 was possible, and now they are like “What are we going to do now?”. Still, so happy to see Nikita back!

  • I think they did not expect a S-3. But the writers will come up with one no problem.
    The deal with Michael you will never guess what it is, but I doubt he loses a limb. … :_)
    The surprise and twists on this show are usually hard to figure out beforehand, and that is what makes it a good show.

  • More MIKITA MOMENTS for Season 3 of NIKITA P l e a s e !.Don’t let the fans lose hope by putting Michael’s character on the sidelines.It is much better to see Michael and NIkita side by side (always together) fighting all their enemies.Amen to that!
