Nikita (The CW): New. Percy goes after the woman that got Nikita clean in an attempt to get back Division. Amanda wants Alex to takeover Zetrov.
Fringe (FOX): New. Olivia, Peter and Walter get stuck in a small town where there seems to be no escape in the middle of a deadly fringe event. This is another great episode. Except that you know exactly what is going on long before the trapped trio does. I am less than enthused when you have brilliantly smart TV characters that seem to take forever to even posit a theory that you have long since figured out having come into it with the exact same information. It takes me out of the moment, but that is a small complaint of an otherwise fantastic hour of TV that ends quite well.
