Nikita Season 3 Spoilers Major DeathBrace yourselves, Nikita fans: The CW thriller’s breakneck pace isn’t going to let up anytime soon. In fact…

“A horribly shocking thing happens this week,” showrunner Craig Silverstein tells TVLine exclusively.

That thing: the death of a major Nikita player.

Of this Friday’s jaw dropper, the EP shares: “In my mind — with the exception of Percy — I don’t think we’ve really had a death like this. It’s a hero’s death for one of the members of our team, and [an actor or actress] who’s been a regular for so long… Sure, Ari was an amazing character, but he was a bad guy. So, I don’t think we’ve had this exact moment.”

Silverstein notes that said character’s demise is “not a standard, big-moment sacrifice,” but it’s also not “an off-the-cuff, middle-of-some-other-scene moment.”

What’s more, “There are a couple deaths this week, actually,” he adds — though the one of true significance is teased here.

To help narrow down the likely suspects — and how the doomed one might go — here’s a streamlined description of the installment (titled “Broken Home”), which picks up amid last week’s revolt: Nikita finds herself being subjected to Amanda’s mental programming, while Alex struggles to contain the uprising for which she’s ultimately responsible. Elsewhere, Michael is still locked away, leaving a solo Birkhoff and Sean to fight back against the mutiny. Owen’s Sam’s newfound memories, meanwhile, drive him to take drastic measures during the lockdown.

In far less fatal scoop, TVLine can (finally) confirm that a long-awaited, hotly anticipated ‘Mikita’ moment will occur before Season 3 signs off.

“There is a certain shower scene coming up that was promised a long time ago,” the Nikita boss reveals with a laugh. “It may not be in exactly the way everyone wants it — because I think when they’re asking for this scene, they want a sexy, soft core shower commercial, basically. We don’t do that, but they are both in a shower, wet and naked. So, that does happen.”

What say you, Nikita fans? Are you worried about any Division faves in particular? Think that shower scene will live up to the hype? Hit the comments with your theories, predictions and reactions.

  • I honestly don’t think Ryan is going to die because they said ‘heroes death’ and he’s in a coma. It would be kind of unrealistic if he woke up at the exact moment when division is under attack and well if he’s lying on the bed and someone just walks into medical and shoots him its not a heroes death. So, its definitely not Nikita, Alex or Michael and I don’t think it’s Birkhoff. Its either Sean or Owen or maybe Sonya.

  • I have quit the show. I won’t be posting about Nikita anymore, but will about NCIS. The writers on NCIS don’t screw the fans.

  • If they ever kill off Alex I’m done watching the show. Now I know Alex has been acting up and not in her right mind and most people here don’t care if she gets killed off, but I think you are forgetting what started the show. In the beginning it was just Nikita and Alex. They were the whole show basically. They started the show that all of you come to love and watch every week. You CANNOT kill off a major character like that. (especially when she’s my favorite lol)
