Nikita Executive producer Craig Silverstein just had this to say in his Producer’s Preview this week about the upcoming episode, “Wrath.” “Somebody very dark from Nikita’s past surfaces. Percy unleashes this demon into the world who starts killing his way through characters that are part of Team Nikita. This is actually one of the most intense episodes in this season.”
I was fortunate enough to hear a few teasers about “Wrath” last weekend at the show’s panel at C2E2. It sounds like it’ll be nothing short of an intense white knuckler! It promises to be a very emotional one too. Even the official synopsis from The CW gets the heart going:
When Nikita (Maggie Q) 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 (Xander Berkeley) 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. Meanwhile, Percy continues to play mind games with Michael (Shane West), Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) and Sean (Dillon Casey), pushing one of them to the brink of death. Aaron Stanford also stars. Jeffrey Hunt directed the episode written by Albert Kim.
Here’s the producer’s preview:
The breathtaking preview clip:
As a major bonus, here’s the extended clip from C2E2 (warning, contains clips for future episodes). As someone who saw this in the IGN theater, it rocks! It’s simply titled, “What Now?”
Nikita returns with all new episodes from now until the end of the season on Friday, April 20th at 8pm on The CW.
