On the Set: Nikita Goes Out With a Bang

Nikita

Never let it be said that Nikita wouldn't hurt a fly. The cast and crew are shooting the action drama's final fight scene — between Nikita (Maggie Q) and best frenemy Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) — in a country estate outside Toronto. During a particularly intense take, a housefly alights atop a loaf of bread on the kitchen set. Prop guns are drawn, blanks are fired and blammo — a special-effects squib detonates inside the insect's meal, blowing dinner and diner to pieces. "Did you see that?" asks coexecutive producer Albert Kim, smacking his forehead while watching a replay over Maggie Q's shoulder. "Our effects crew always wants to blow up bread."

Maggie Q

It's the beginning of the end for Nikita. The CW spy show returns Friday at 9/8c to kick off its final, six-episode season. And although fans are grateful that Nikita will have a proper (if shortened) send-off, there's a very legitimate fear that things won't end well. read more

Lyndsy Fonseca and Dillon Casey

Alex is about to get a major setback on Nikita.

On Friday's episode (9/8c, The CW), Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) gets shot in the shoulder during a Division mission. The injury itself shouldn't cause that much trouble.

Maggie Q and Shane West

Nikita's Percy may be dead, but his legacy lives on in The Dirty Thirty.

On the Season 3 premiere (Friday at 9/8c, The CW), Nikita & Co. discover that taking over Division means having to clean house after the death of its leader Percy (Xander Berkeley) last season. "When the recall order was sent out, 'Percy is dead. Come back in from wherever you are in the world,' some agents complied. Thirty of those people didn't," Nikita creator Craig Silverstein told reporters at Comic-Con. "They cut their trackers out and disabled them. They're out for themselves, money, for whatever crazy ideology and personal goals they have."

Weekend TV Roundup: A Thick Satire, Good Wife Finale, a Marvel-ous EPIX Weekend, More

The Thick of It

Timing is everything. Which may help explain why, after a nearly three-year delay, BBC America is finally importing the third season (from 2009) of the blistering political satire The Thick of It to its "Ministry of Laughs" weekend franchise (Saturday, midnight/11c) — on the heels of HBO's launch of Veep, which springs from the same demented imagination of dark farceur Armando Iannucci.

Thick set the tone of deeply cynical, bitterly vicious, and scaldingly profane high-office shenanigans that Veep is adapting with some success. read more
