Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) has been through a lot lately on “Nikita,” what with getting electro-tortured and made to think one of her fellow recruits was canceled.

So yeah, it’s nice that she and a very dapper looking Thom (Ashton Holmes) finally get a liplock in there, amidst all the desolation and despair. (The CW wouldn’t be so cruel as to make this a dream sequence, would they?)

We know that some of you are more into the undeniable chemistry that Michael (Shane West) and Alex have though, but perhaps that’s just him getting caught up in the Nikita 2.0 feelings he had for the first Niki (Maggie Q)?

Oh, and since this is a preview of Thursday’s (Nov. 4) episode, let’s actually discuss what to expect (besides kissing). Thom is leaving, but not necessarily forever. He’s assigned to eliminated Anna (Rayisa Kondracki), a lady who’s been having an affair with a U.S. Senator (Spencer Garrett). If Division can erase the affair’s traces, then the dirty politician will pass a bill that will fund the agency. Pretty nifty trade, eh?

So, any of you shippers want to weigh in on the Thom/Alex/Michael/Nikita dynamic?
