Lyndsy Fonseca on How Nikita's Final Season Showcases Alex 'Really Accepting Who She Is'

Nov 22 2013, 12:48pm CST | by TV Line

Nikita‘s final season (bowing this Friday at 9/8c) is laying out a path of self-discovery for Lyndsy Fonseca‘s troubled-but-triumphant Alex, one which the actress says her alter ego will finally embrace.

“Alex took that UN job offer, so she’s specifically working to take down human trafficking this season,” Fonseca shares. “Publicly, she’s Alexandra Udinov. She’s going around to different countries and world leaders and letting people know what she’s doing here.

“So, you’ll see a little maturity in her and that she’s really accepting who she is, for the first time,” she continues. “She realizes that she has the power to do this and it’s her mission.”

Aside from her personal journey, Alex will be pulling double duty as her badass ex-Divisionite self. “At night, she’s doing things that she shouldn’t be doing and putting her spy gear on,” Fonseca teases with a laugh. “Her secret mission is to find The Shop [which is now known as The Group] and clear Nikita’s name.”

While Michael will struggle to come to terms with Nikita’s homecoming (which is as abrupt as her departure), Fonseca explains: “As far as Alex is concerned, she gets it. She can understand it and knows Nikita well enough to know that this isn’t some strange behavior; it’s been a pattern with her.” That said, expect to see much more independence between the mentor/mentee duo in the CW saga’s swan-song run. “There’s less codependency now [because] they’re off doing their own thing,” the actress notes.

Add to that the fact that Alex’s “own thing” includes handling Owen Sam, and our Russian heiress’ hands are full.

“Sam quickly comes into the picture, and we’re going to [use that to] trick the audience a few times,” teases Fonseca playfully. “After the rewiring Amanda did to Alex’s own head, there’s an understanding; she’s trying to give Sam the benefit of the doubt. At first it’s, ‘Oh s–t, Sam’s here. He’s got a gun to me. This is bad.’ But then maybe they’re working together, and then he switches again and has a secret… For Alex, this relationship is all about finding Owen in him and reaching that person.”

Regardless of what hardships Nikita‘s farewell season has in store for Alex, Fonseca is confident that Alex’s final arc is a fitting one — for both herself and her fans. “Alex has been through enough trauma and deaths of boyfriends and torture through the last three years,” she jokes.”I feel like [creator] Craig [Silverstein] and the writers really wanted her to finally have some sort of happiness in the end and we’re going to be able to see that.”
