How might Peter and Neal figure in? Well, it appears that Katya might not be in her homeland’s best graces, seeing as onetime Continuum baddie/Mistresses Mike_Dopudnewcomer Mike Dopud is appearing in the same episode as Sergei, a Russian gangster.

Mahendru, whose previous TV credits also include 2 Broke Girls and Big Time Rush, can also be seen in the pilot for NBC’s The Blacklist, premiering this fall. Following her well-received freshman run as The Americans‘ Nina, the actress was promoted to series regular for Season 2.

White Collar launches its fifth season sometime this fall.

  • Love her in The Americans! She is easily my favourite female on he show and spent the whole series on edge thinking she would get found out and killed off! For her then to become a triple agent and get promoted to series regular meant I could breathe a sigh of relief ha ha!
