Devon Sawa sat down with TVGuide in Los Angeles to sip some coffee and dish about the return of his character Owen on Nikita Friday (8/7c on The CW). In "Falling Ash," Michael (Shane West) and Nikita (Maggie Q) are on the hunt to find Dr. Joseph Mars (John Ralston) as part of their Black Box Cleanup Tour. Owen, a former Division cleaner, has his own reasons to seek out the good doctor when he encounters them and decides to join forces.
"There's a little bit of Black Box going on, and this doctor may have the answers to coming off the Regimen for Owen," Sawa tells TVGuide.com. "So he's personally invested. They run into each other at the same spot and go on an adventure together."
And although Owen reunites with Nikita, he's happy to see her as a sibling would — not a potential lover. "I'm not about to get in the way of the Mikita universe," he assures 'shippers. Along those lines, he also weighs in on the possibility of "Olex" and how a bromance may be brewing between Owen and Michael. "Birkhoff brings them together," he teases.
Check out our interview with Sawa and be sure to watch the "bromantic" Nikita clip that follows.
Nikita airs Fridays at 8/7c on The CW.
Are you happy that Owen's back? Are you down for "Olex"?
