The mysterious man shows up at the gallery. Ava pulls a gun and tells him to take off his mask. The man turns out to be . . . Nikolas! (As played by Marcus Coloma. Not sure how I feel about that. I've wanted Nikolas to come back forever, but in the form of Tyler Christopher or Nick Stabile. We shall see how much chemistry there is between them, though Maura West tends to spark with everyone.)
