The CW has released the official synopses for the twelfth episodes of Nikita‘s third season, titled “With Fire”.
ARI SEEKS HELP FROM DIVISION — After Birkhoff (Aaron Stanford) gets a tip from Shadowbot that Ari (guest star Peter Outerbridge) is in NY, Nikita (Maggie Q) and Owen (Devon Sawa) swoop in to pick him up before the FBI does. However, Ari reveals he planned everything for a chance to talk to Nikita. He tells her that Amanda (Melinda Clarke) has gone too far and is working with a terrorist who plans an attack on American soil. Ari wants fifty million dollars for the information that could lead to the terrorist’s (Peter Marek) capture. Nikita and Michael are stunned when Ryan (Noah Bean) considers paying the bribe. Meanwhile, Sean (Dillon Casey) is jealous of Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) and Owen’s relationship.
Eagle Egilsson directed the episode written by Carlos Coto (#312).
We’ve already seen hints of tension between Amanda and Ari this season while they’ve been on the run together. While Ari wants to keep his head down, Amanda is obsessed with her mission to get revenge against Nikita by targeting her loved ones. It looks as though that tension will come to a head in this episode.
“With Fire” airs Friday, March 1 at 8:00 p.m. ET.
