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.
As Nikita draws to a close, actor Shane West has already lined up his next series: Salem, the first scripted series from WGN America.
Nikita will go out on a high note, so to speak.
At the series' Comic-Con panel on Friday, creator Craig Silverstein revealed that the season will place Nikita's gang on a plane. "Their lair this time is an airplane that means they can be in different places around the globe," he said. "We're going to be in the sky!"

The drama focuses on...
It's only natural for AMC's Mad Men to be consumed with thoughts of mortality as it heads further into the turbulent late '60s in its sixth and reportedly next-to-last season of existence. A year ago, the central set piece in the premiere was a surprise birthday party. This time, it's a similarly eventful wake. And that's not the only way in which Sunday's two-hour opener (9/8c), written by series creator Matthew Weiner, drives the death-comes-to-us-all theme home with such sledgehammer relentlessness and obviousness that for the first time, I began to think maybe it is time for this beautifully crafted series to start thinking about giving up the ghost. There's no denying the importance of a show that manages to win four well-deserved best-drama Emmys in its first four times at bat — I didn't hesitate to include Mad Men among the Top 10 in a recent "60 Greatest Dramas of All Time" package in TV Guide Magazine. But does it have to be this self-important?
How well does Nikita's Maggie Q know her costars' previous work?
Nikita's Maggie Q on the "Mikita" relationship: People need to get ready for a rough ride
During a recent visit to the TVGuide.com studios, we put the actress to the test. We named off her castmates well-known roles (and a few less recognizable characters) that her costars played before joining the CW spy drama. Did Q know that Devon Sawa starred in Casper as a kid? Or that girls swooned for Shane West in A Walk to Remember? And who once played a girl named Jenny in Hot Tub Time Machine?
Here's blood in your eye. And your hair, chest, ears, anywhere and everywhere it might pool.

There's trouble in secret-agent paradise.
Even though Nikita kicked off the season with a romantic proposal between our favorite rogue agents, relations don't look so rosy when the series returns Friday, Jan. 18 at 8/7c on The CW. Or at least, that's the conclusion that Amanda (Melinda Clarke) has drawn from her surveillance of Division.

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."
