Sean briefly left her, not wanting to witness another person he loved die due to their connection to Division, and it resulted in Alex relapsing into drug use.
Later, however, Sean returned to save her life, realizing how much he needed her. Amanda targeted Sean due to his place as a member of Nikita's team. Efforts to clear Sean failed, forcing Division to fake his death. Sean was then forced to remain at Division, his sisters believing him dead and the public believing him a murderer and traitor. In " Black Badge " Sean was framed for the murder of Kendrick.
Sean then turned himself in for questioning to buy time. In " Broken Home ", Sean, involved in the mutiny, was wounded in action with a bullet and died later in Alex's arms from internal bleeding, before telling Alex to promise him she would get better.
Personality Edit Being a military man, Sean had a code of honor that made him disagree with many of Division's policies. In " Looking Glass ", when Division agent Lisa was captured, Sean insisted that Amanda provide him with operational support instead of abandoning her agent, yelling "You never leave a man behind!
However, despite being a military man and staying true to his mission of retrieving the Black Box from Nikita, Sean's choice on how he did so seemed questionable. In "London Calling" he told his mother that he planned on seducing Alex as a means of luring out Nikita, since the two still had a connection. Sean began to develop feelings for Alex in Season 2.
He tried to get Alex to tell him about her butterfly tattoo and tried to break down her walls. He eventually got Alex to open up to him.

They do and Alex wonders why Nikita didn't just tell her the truth, Nikita says it was never the right time. But Alex says it was because Nikita didn't trust her enough to handle it, and now Alex can't trust her.
Alex says she's going to get her own revenge, she tries to leave, but Nikita grabs her and tells her she will end up somewhere she doesn't want to be.
Alex says it is her decision and tries to rip away from Nikita.
Division attacks them, and while Nikita escapes, Alex finds a different way off the roof, not following Nikita. In season 2, Alex is not completely hostile towards Nikita, yet does not want to have anything to do with her since Alex no longer trusts her. In season 2 episode 1, they get into a fight where they are expressing their anger without having to kill each other.
Nikita breaks Alex's arm and shoots her in her leg, leaving her injured, wearing casts, and going through therapy for many episodes. She tells Alex she did it because she cares, and tells her to get out of Division before it's too late. While they no longer have a close relationship, they are not enemies. They run into each other a bit and have short awkward conversations, but they help each other out a bit, slowly mending their relationship.
As of "Sanctuary," Alex and Nikita live together at Birkoff's house, after Alex needs a place to stay after attempting to reveal more about her own past. Nikita comforts Alex when she has a hard time dealing that her mother is alive, had an affair with Semak, and all of her childhood memories of her home aren't what they seemed.

As of the start of season 3, Alex and Nikita are in a good place. They seemed to have matured increasingly since the last season. Alex saved Nikita's life by taking a bullet to the arm, in an attempt to push her out of the way. After Nikita returns to Division with a disoriented Alex, anxious Division members awaited to see what their fate would be, her personality changes noticeably. Without getting mad at the recruits, everyone seemed anxious around her, Ryan, Birkoff, and Michael even seemed concerned.
Before, Nikita was going to bring in the rogue agent with no force. However, her mission shifted after she shot Alex. Ryan asks Nikita,"Why do you think she turn? Nikita is always concerned for Alex's welfare, when she heard Alex scream at a Division member, suspected of being a mole, Nikita heard her and quickly went into panic mode trying to find her season 3 episode 5.
When she learns of Alex taking pills, she is heartbroken and disappointed that Alex didn't come to her; however, she eventually tells Alex that they will work through her addiction together. In one of the episode in season 3 Alex had said then Nikita is the most important person in her life. Amanda and Alex[ edit ] Amanda has a complicated relationship with Alex. Amanda's relationship with Alex largely echoes that of Nikita's, most notably without Amanda being completely heartbroken, for what Nikita did to her.
Mostly because Alex was mentored by Nikita, and much of Alex resembles Nikita. Amanda found it hard to uncover Alex's motives and claims that " Amanda finds Alex sometimes unpredictable and she is, at the beginning of the series, mystified about Alex's past.
She spends most of her time in season one trying to figure out what Alex is hiding from her. Not the fact that she was Nikita's mole, but her past that she rarely ever talks about. Although Amanda recommended that Percy cancel Alex in the beginning of the first season, Amanda was not necessarily out to get Alex.
However, Alex's relationship is more rare with Amanda compared to the other recruits. They share a deep connection that doesn't appear on the surface.
But Alex often tries to exert her power over Amanda in front of the recruits, something they wouldn't dare to do. Also, Alex often back talks to Amanda, which Amanda usually blows down with ease. When Alex sneers or banters to Amanda, she seems to be amused with Alex, and her thoughts, and she calmly retorts back.
Even though Alex didn't like Amanda nor wanted to like her, they are connected and show their unique version of empathy with each other. In the beginning of season one, Alex does not like Amanda nor want to like her, yet Amanda and Alex seem to have a unique understanding of each other.
When Amanda first met Alex, she instantly was reminded of Nikita and wanted her cancelled in fear of another "Nikita" situation happening again. It was later revealed that it wasn't because Amanda was afraid there would be another rogue on the loose, but the fact that she couldn't stand to lose another "Nikita" that she spent so long perfecting and transforming.
When Amanda was trying to figure out Alex's past, she didn't find what she was looking for. Therefore, was stumpped, which Percy note rarely happens. In the season one finale, when Amanda kills Alex with her kill chip, after 25 seconds of Alex being dead, Amanda uses adrenaline to bring her back to life. She states that Alex doesn't need Nikita, nor should she go back to Nikita, and tells Alex that she won't hang on to her like she did to Nikita, and lets Alex go free.
In season two, Amanda's relationship with Alex changed drastically. Although Alex claimed they were just "business partners", Amanda comforted Alex on many occasions when Alex needed guidance for her past and future. Amanda found it harder to control Alex because she was getting impatient with Amanda, who prefers to move at a slow pace in contrast to Alex, who at this time was impulsive and passionate about her revenge.
Amanda wouldn't allow Alex to leave Division without an armed escort to protect her from Gogol. Amanda keeps it in her best interest to keep Alex under her control and convince her she needs Division, while giving Alex intelligence to kill Semak, the person who ordered her father's murder. Alex and Amanda would often take the roles of teenage rebellious daughter and mother. Alex would often back talk to Amanda, something the recruits in Division would never dare to do.

Alex once uses it as a remark when Sean steps up to Amanda, Alex snarkly says, "Can't remember the last time someone spoke to Amanda like that, oh well, yes I can, that was me" "Looking Glass". Amanda sometimes finds Alex rather amusing and challenging. Whenever Alex sneers or banters to Amanda, she seems to enjoy the intellectual challenge and she calmly retorts back. In season 2 episode 1, Percy asks why Alex is always looking for mother figures and names Amanda as one of them.
Amanda, throughout the season, acts as a mother figure and business partner, as it appears Amanda deeply cares for what happens to Alex. Ari said the only way he and her could be together, with some money, would be a way that she wouldn't approve of. He tries to persuade Amanda that the only way for Amanda to get what she wants, is if she kills Alex and blames her death on Semak. Amanda was distraught with this decision and said that Alex has worked so hard and doesn't deserve such a fate.
Though they never went through with the plan, as Alex said she was taking over Zetrov, Amanda was happy that she was going back to her original plan. After Alex finds her mother, Amanda wants to make a deal. Alex can have her mother, as well as a big sum of money from Zetrov, if Alex hands over everything in the name of it. Alex was thinking of handing it over to Amanda, until she says it isn't fair to Nikita if she just gives Amanda Zetrov.
Amanda complained that Alex should think for herself and not Nikita. Alex says Amanda doesn't deserve to win, Amanda says if Alex leaves the building the place her mother was staying at that Amanda will hunt Alex down.
Alex tells Amanda not to worry, she will come to her. Amanda is now on the run and hunted by Division, Alex and Nikita had done this to both Ari and Amanda. The plan would have not gone through if it weren't for Alex pulling through for Nikita.
Amanda showed Alex empathy and her version of kindness, and Amanda feels utterly betrayed by Alex.
In season three, Alex went on the mission to get Amanda, however, their cover is quickly blown thanks to Alex's altercation with Amanda's henchman that was twice her size, and the raid became a free-for-all. Alex reinjured her arm, but she and Michael recover the key. They have had no interaction so far in season three, however, Amanda knows the way to hurt Nikita is to go after Alex.

Amanda gets in the car as Alex trembles in shock, Amanda then smirks at Alex and says, " Looks like I won't be leaving Geneva empty handed after all. Sean and Alex[ edit ] Alex's past love interest.
Though they had a very rough start from the beginning they eventually started to soften towards each other. Sean has a hard time getting Alex to bring down her walls. Alex herself tries not to get emotional and Sean sometimes gets Alex to recognize that he likes her.
Despite Sean giving many signs of attraction to Alex, she either ignored them or she was oblivious to them since she was emotionally not ready to commit to a relationship with all the things happening in her life.
He and Alex share a first kiss in a car with Birkoff driving and Ryan in the passenger seat. In the second-season finale, he tries to ask her out on a date four times, but Alex never lets him finish due to being in action, criticizing that he said that she was a goal, Alex passing out due to a broken arm and being electrocuted, and Nikita interrupting Sean right before he was going to ask Alex while she was in a Division medical facility.
At the start of season 3, it appears Alex and Sean are in a relationship. However, by episode 3 it is revealed that Sean is only at Division for Alex, because he loved her. But Alex is at Division because it is the only place she knows as home, where she can be herself, and where her "family" Nikita is. After a toxin is released in the lab, Sean returns to ask Alex why she's not returning his calls, and asks her again why she's still there. They eventually make up after an emotional scene in a medical room, they then entered a storage closet and make love, for the first time.
As a result, they faked his death and Sean was officially welcomed into Division by Alex. Sean died in season 3 episode 18, as a result of a bullet nicking his artery. They shared their last moments together in where they met, operations. She presumably went to get revenge for the current events. Sean later died in Alex's arms towards the end of season 3.
Owen and Alex[ edit ] Once Owen is brought to Division, Ryan wants him interrogated in order to find out where he's been and assigns Alex to do the job, since he hasn't met Alex before.
When Alex introduces herself Owen puts the pieces together that she is the Alex that Nikita would talk to him about. They exchanged witty banter and Alex asks him questions about what he has been doing. Owen tells Alex about Anne breaking him out of the Russian prison.
When they first meet, they don't initially click under the circumstances. However, in episode 5 they partner up to find the mole after he figures out Ryan tasked her with this objective. They connect on a partnership level and at the end of the episode they joke about how sexy his scars are and Alex asks him about his butterfly tattoo.
He says he likes to keep some of his memories to himself, she says she has to go and tells him to stay out of trouble. As she leaves, he notices she has a butterfly tattoo, on her back, too and smiles. Sean is jealous of the relationship Alex shares with Owen, Alex can share her past easier with Owen than she can with Sean, who was raised in a regular American family. Alex and Owen bond over their rough childhood and conflicted thoughts about Amanda and Division.
Seymour and Alex[ edit ] In the first season, while Alex was still in Division as a recruit, Birkhoff would often yell at her and make her stay after class to get the computer sets right. Though she was faking to make it appear like it was new to her. In the second season, Alex and Birkhoff have a cute brother-sister relationship, as they both like to crack a couple of jokes at each other.
Birkhoff and Alex often get snippy with each other when they are on a mission, Alex complains that Birkhoff takes too long to do his nerdy stuff and Birkhoff complains Alex takes too long to set things up for him to do his nerdy stuff. Small things like this happen in about every mission they do together, sometimes it ends up in Nikita having to get them back on track.
Though Alex does trust Birkhoff and has shown to care for him and Birkhoff shows he cares for Alex. An example would be when Alex first stayed with Nikita, Birkhoff noticed Alex stole some of his pills for his pain, as he believed that she was going back to drugs after a shaky encounter with her mother. He told Nikita and Nikita confronted Alex about her emotional state. Alex also saved Birkhoff's life many times, even while she was working with Division in season 2. When Alex took a bullet for Nikita, Birkoff and Sonya missed the guard where the rogue agent got a gun from.
Birkoff was initially scared that Alex would believe it was all his fault because of what Sonya would have told her. However, Alex says she was shot and sweetly whispers what ever problems he and Sonya have, he has to fix it.
They are almost always on good terms, despite their witty banter and outward appearance of annoyance with each other at times. Michael and Alex[ edit ] Alex's relationship with Michael largely echoes that of Nikita's when she first met him, although rather noticeably with the romantic element. It was heavily implied before Echoes that Michael has figured out that Alex is Nikita's mole, and even does not say so when Thom is killed and blamed for this.
Alex was highly suspicious of his and Nikita's relationship, and was not surprised when she imagined them kissing in Echoes. Michael has always protected Alex and she even accused him of being her guardian angel. He found out she was using pain pills and confronted her before she became fully addicted to them. Nathan and Alex[ edit ] Alex's neighbor and love interest in the second half of the first season. Alex fell in love with Nathan because he was normal, and that was what she wanted, an escape from Division.
After he killed Jaden, while protecting Alex, he scattered to the wind after Alex told him to. He hasn't been seen since. Reception[ edit ] "However, praise must certainly go to Lyndsy Fonseca, who plays Alex. The tortured, recalcitrant junkie kid in the flashbacks could easily have been overplayed, but she handled it extremely well, showing breadth in her abilities this early on, and in the present day scenes she also gives off the unmistakeable aura of someone who is a little bit harder than they are letting on.
Jonah Krakow of IGN called Alex "a beautiful young woman" and said that "Alex's story was my favorite part of the show".
