Shane West, Maggie Q
Fans psyched for Nikita's return from hiatus are looking forward to one thing: A long-awaited, steamy encounter between Michael (Shane West) and Nikita (Maggie Q) teased by early promos.
But not so fast! West, who's well aware of the devoted "Mikita" following, tweeted a warning: "Lots of different Nikita promos are circulating to get you all in a 'tizzy.' Some may be dream sequences, flashbacks, or the present ;)."
"This is Nikita's version of Inception," Melinda Clarke tells TVGuide.com about Thursday's episode. "Amanda is injecting Alex with a hallucinogen to give her this waking dream state in order to extract the information she wants."
The chemical interrogation will make many fans happy. "They really want Amanda to be truly evil," she says. "That's the fan response: We need her to be as bad as possible and to be really evil. At one point someone asked for some violence."

He joined Division to get revenge and take out bad guys along the way. That's why he's dark, why people ask if Michael could...

The trio involves Michael (Shane West), who once trained Nikita — and has a romantic past with her — and Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca), his Division trainee who has graduated to agent.

Nikita, Vampire Diaries
Who knew the little CW network could become such a player in Thursday's overcrowded TV battleground? All it took were a couple of hot vampires. (Something not lost on HBO these days, either.) Tonight's major TV event: the return of the addictively twisty The Vampire Diaries for its second season of "Bite me, Twilight" supernatural-romance angst. As a bonus, the newest version of the Nikita franchise immediately follows, and it's well worth your time, too. (I'll miss Supernatural on Thursdays, but it will help fill the void on Fridays now that Syfy is turning to wrestling) ...
