The Wakeup Bomb

The Wakeup Bomb

Annie is in Venice, Italy making an intel pick-up from a man with a white scarf in a busy public square. However, the operation goes bad when her contact is shot dead and the hit men get away.


Back in the States, Annie is still trying to reconcile with Danielle after telling her the truth about the CIA. Danielle doesn't want to hear it. She asks Annie to move the rest of her things out of the guest home. Annie is crushed by her sister's disdain and moves into a new "safe house." 

She meets a charming chef when she sits down to dinner alone at a Spanish tapas restaurant. He's so charming that she drinks too much and the chef is forced to let her sleep at his house when she won't reveal where she lives.

Back at work, Joan isn't happy. Not only is Annie not supposed to be "seeing" foreigners, but this rock star chef happens to be in the crosshairs of Spanish intelligence officers because he's allegedly part of the terrorist Basque separatist organization, ETA. Joan tells Annie she just found her new op.

About Covert Affairs

The critically acclaimed original, COVERT AFFAIRS, follows the pursuits of CIA operative Annie Walker, whose exceptional linguistic skills and killer instinct take her on dangerous top-secret assignments around the globe. Last season, Annie traveled to Russia in pursuit of her former boss turned double agent Lena Smith (guest star Sarah Clarke), who shot her twice in the chest and killed Simon (guest star Richard Coyle), an asset and the man Annie was falling in love with. Thanks to a dramatic rescue led by Auggie (Christopher Gorham), Annie escaped her Russian prison cell and returned home. Back in the States, Auggie made a dramatic, long-awaited move when he finally kissed Annie resulting in the reveal of their romantic feelings for one another. 

Season four picks up with even more complications at the agency, when Annie aligns with the infamous former head of the Department of Clandestine Services, Henry Wilcox (guest star Gregory Itzin), in a dangerous, undercover mission that puts those closest to her in jeopardy. Hill Harper will play Calder Michaels, an ambitious CIA station chief based in Latin America.  Intelligent, charismatic and a bit cocky, Michaels ascended to a very high position at a relatively young age and is plotting his way into a bigger position back in Washington. In his journey for greater power, he will attempt to make Annie and Auggie his allies, but his questionable actions will cause them to doubt his intentions.  Recurring guest stars this season will include Latin telenovela star Manolo Cardona (“Beverly Hills Chihuahua”) and Michelle Ryan (“Bionic Woman”). COVERT AFFAIRS is shot on location in Toronto, ON, and international shooting locations this season include Medellín, Columbia; Lyon, France; Rome, Italy; Vienna, Austria; Frankfurt, Germany; Copenhagen, Denmark and Taipei, Taiwan.
