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. After all, she's survived witnessing her father's murder, a debilitating drug addiction and being a sex slave. A little bullet in the shoulder shouldn't be a big deal, right?

She's ultimately the same creature as Percy, and gets caught up into wanting more and more power. It goes beyond just money. For the future of Division, it'll be interesting to see who ends up in power. Clearly it could be up for grabs."
Maggie Q once teased that Dillon Casey's Sean Pierce would be stripping down for Nikita, and on Friday's episode (8/7c, The CW), that promise will be fulfilled.
But executive producer Craig Silverstein says there's a reason for Sean to get naked, besides simply pleasing the fans, of course...
Nikita's midseaon finale left viewers with more than a few questions, and star Maggie Q sat down with reporters this month to tease what to expect once the show returns in January.
Want some almost-nudity? Nikita new guy Dillon Casey, who plays Oversight's Sean Pierce, will be stripping down all in the name of the upcoming power play. "He's naked in the whole episode, the one that we just finished [shooting]," said Q. "There were a couple...
