Ahh, yes! This is very good news. Owen is always such a badass. I don't think there'll be a love triangle; wasn't Owen pro-Mikita? lol. The tension between the two boys is always fun though.


this is pleasing news...I doubt there is any risk to nikita & michael anymore. I don`t even think there would be threat to alex and sean. i think this is just to give michael a reliable partner in the field. Or just a really scary instructor for ryan`s version of division.


I'm actually so happy to hear this. It's the right way to go. Hopefully this means more female viewers also for the demo. However, I really hope we don't get people shipping Owen and Nikita and only tuning in for the romance.
