Julie Ganzalo, the star of now-axed 'Eli Stone', is guest starring as Jill who makes a bond with Nikita during the mission.
The CW's new weapon "Nikita" returns on September 23 with "Kill Jill". Nikita rescues Jill (guest star Julie Gonzalo), a journalist who is trying to expose a conspiracy involving Division and a major plane crash.
Michael and Percy suspect Birkhoff of being Nikita's inside mole and send Amanda in to interrogate him. Michael enlists the help of the recruits, Alex, Jaden and Thom, to help them locate their latest target.
"Nikita" had shown an impressive number in the September 9 pilot screening, even topping its predecessor "The Vampire Diaries" which had been the network's juggernaut for quite sometime. "Nikita" absorbed 3.57 million viewers overall while "Vampire" managed to pull in 3.35 million viewers by comparison.
