Begin the Begin

Begin the Begin

Season two starts where the first one left off, with Annie and Ben escaping danger together again. This time, they barely survive an ambush at a hospital in Guam. Ben continues to be a magnet for trouble. Later, when Jai visits them at a safe facility in the States, we see there is no love lost between the two men.

Annie returns home and finds out that her sister's garage was burglarized. To make sure she hasn't "brought her work home," Annie and Auggie arrange for a team to enter the house and scan it for any clues that might mean a breach of security.

Meanwhile, Annie is tasked to bring down an Estonian mobster named Morozov. He's connected to Russian arms dealers and murders. The CIA has been receiving intelligence about Morozov through his mistress, a pro tennis player named Nadia. But when Annie approaches Nadia for more information, she makes it known that she no longer wants to work with the CIA.

Annie won't take "no" for an answer because she suspects that Nadia may be in danger. When she goes over Joan's head to approach Nadia, after being pulled off the assignment, Annie nearly exposes both herself and Nadia. To make matters worse, Ben has disappeared from the hospital he was moved to and now Annie has a big mess to clean up.

About Covert Affairs

USA’s critically acclaimed original series COVERT AFFAIRS stars Golden Globe nominee Piper Perabo as CIA operative Annie Walker, a skilled linguist and spy whose work takes her on top-secret missions around the globe. 

Several years ago, Annie was recruited fresh off The Farm to work in the Domestic Protection Division under Joan Campbell (Kari Matchett). But today, Annie is no longer a fresh-faced rookie. Season Four saw her going head-to-head with her toughest adversary yet: the nefarious former Department of Clandestine Services, Henry Wilcox. Grieving the death of his son Jai and convinced Arthur Campbell (Peter Gallagher) was to blame, Henry was determined to take down the Campbells—and anyone else who got in his way. Annie ultimately managed to put a stop to Henry once and for all by faking her death, going dark, and pursuing him by any means necessary. But the battle cost her dearly, and meant sacrificing not just her relationship with Auggie (Christopher Gorham), but a part of herself. 

Season Five picks up several months after the team took down Henry in Hong Kong. Auggie is back at the DPD, Arthur is offered a job in the private sector working for McQuaid Security, and Joan is returning from maternity leave to find that she’s been passed over for the job of DCS in favor of Calder (Hill Harper). And after mysteriously going off the grid for months, Annie has resurfaced, anxious to get back to work at the CIA and harboring a secret that could jeopardize everything. Sent to Chicago to investigate a purported terror plot, she soon discovers that the threat is very real, and much greater than anyone has anticipated, and finds herself swept into an international mission that will take her from Venezuela to Latvia to France and many points in between. Along the way, she’ll continue to cross paths with Arthur’s new boss Ryan McQuaid (Nic Bishop), a charismatic Navy SEAL-turned-CEO with his own ties to the terrorist—and his own secrets.
