Henry Wilcox’s dastardly plan has all come to a head: Teo is dead, Arthur is facing treason charges, Joan and Auggie are suspended from their jobs, and Annie is on the run in Europe. Things are looking dire, but no one is quite ready to give up just yet. 

With help from Auggie, Annie makes her way to Frankfurt to look into Henry’s recent visit there, discovering that while in town he met with his ex-wife, Jai’s mother Sana. Meanwhile, the CIA sends in a team, led by Calder, to pull Annie out before the foreign authorities can get to her. The exfiltration team isn’t out for blood—that is, not until Henry’s mysterious red-headed henchman shows up and murders one of the CIA team members, making it look like Annie was the culprit. With Henry back at Langley as a consultant, he’s controlling the situation more than ever. Now Annie is truly running for her life, and, and her only play might be to turn to an unexpected source for help implementing a bold and risky plan. 

And so, as the season ends, Annie finds herself just where we saw her as it began: alone in a climbing elevator, saying her goodbyes to Auggie and she races towards a confrontation that could mean the end of life as she knows it.

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.
