It's time for a walk down memory lane. Nikita's (Maggie Q) memory lane to be exact.

That's right, Nikita fans. We'll finally be learning a bit more about Nikita's past... specifically the people she left behind after escaping Division. Yes, she did leave behind more than just Michael (Shane West) when she decided to go rogue.

Lucky for you agents, we just found out which controversial Bones star will be playing Nikita's former partner-in-crime...

We can tell you exclusively that Katheryn Winnick, whom Bones fans may or may not fondly remember as Booth's (David Boreanaz) war correspondent girlfriend Hannah in season six, has been cast as Kelly, the partner Nikita left behind when she escaped Division.

Winnick will appear in the fourth episode, airing in October. In the episode we'll learn what happened to Kelly after Nikita left and why our favorite female badass has decided to reunite with her. According to Craig Silverstein, Nikita's showrunner, it may be because our spies are looking for something more important than revenge: a home.

"There's a real strong sense of home. They're all looking for their home," Silverstein tells us of season two. "Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) is looking for the home that she once had and lost. Nikita is looking for the home that she never ever really had. She thinks she can get it with Michael, but they can't settle down until they make sure no one's chasing them. That means taking down Oversight, which means taking down Division once and for all."

Nikita returns on Friday, Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
