The CW has released the episode synopsis and promo stills from the sixth episode of Nikita‘s third season, “Sideswipe.”
DOUBLE CROSS — Nikita (Maggie Q) and Michael (Shane West) capture Cyrus (guest star Isaiah Mustafa), an arms dealer, who is purchasing a weapon-jamming device for Ari (guest star Peter Outerbridge). Nikita convinces Ryan (Noah Bean) to let them use Cyrus as bait to capture Amanda but Cyrus manages to escape the trap. However, when Amanda double crosses Cyrus, his only hope for survival is Nikita. Meanwhile, Birkhoff (Aaron Stanford) is hot on the trail of Amanda’s (Melinda Clarke) mole and Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) starts to unravel. Joshua Butler directed the episode written by Terry Matalas & Travis Fickett (#306).
That’s right, Isaiah Mustafa, the Old Spice Guy, will be guest starring in this episode as an arms dealer.
We’re also looking forward to seeing more Amanda after her dramatic return to the scene in episode 4, as she continues with her plot to get revenge on Nikita. This episode sounds it will have healthy doses of backstabbing, betrayal, and intrigue.
Be sure to check out the promo stills from the episode as well:
“Sideswipe” will air Friday, December 7 at 8:00 p.m. ET. This will be the second week of Nikita airing in its new time slot, followed by an Arrow repeat.
