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

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.
