"Nikita"returns after a long hiatus Friday, and although the episode titled "Wrath" has plenty of action, it also allows stars Maggie Q and Shane West to show just how much their characters care for each. 

"The next episode is pretty emotional for both Michael and Nikita," Shane West said during the April 14 "Nikita" panel at the Chicago Comic and Entetainment Expo, answering a fan's question about what scene has been the most trying emotionally for him.

In "Wrath," Nikita tries to come to terms with her past and the person she became at Divison thanks to Amanda and Percy. Amanda and Ari are on the run after Team Nikita prevented them from taking over Zetrov. Nikita believes her mission is over and after Madeline closes down Division, she and Michael can walk away with their presidential pardons.

She doesn't realize that Percy is back in charge at Division, and he's once again gunning for her.
"Percy wants to take Michael or someone else that Nikita cares about, because that is his only way to hurt her," creator/executive producer Craig Silverstein said during the panel, which I moderated.

Below you can find more comments the guys made about "Wrath" and what's coming the rest of the season. (These were live-tweets on my account made by Carla Day.) Above you'll find three videos from the press room, where Carla (@carladay), Melissa (@thetelevixen) and I asked the guys more questions. The first video contains the best highlights; the other two are the full interviews with each gentleman.

"Wrath" airs at 7 p.m. April 20 on CW.
