An enigmatic Hawks' employee with a job description that seems as vague as his background, Nico (Scott Cohen) is a professional problem-solver with a whole lot of tricks up his sleeve and has no problem getting his hands dirty. He has a tendency to turn up unannounced with emergency assignments for Dani, and a maddening habit of never taking "no" for an answer. As Dani soon learns, Nico's methods can sometimes be questionable, but there's no denying that he manages to get things done. As for how he gets results? That's just one of the many secrets that surround this inscrutable mystery man. As Nico begins to confide in Dani about his affair with Marshall Pittman's wife and his paternal feelings for the Pittmans' daughter, he reveals his more human side. Only time will tell if this slowly growing openness will lead to more intimacy between Dani and Nico.
