Rock n' Roll Suicide

In a remote cabin in the Russian wilderness, Annie has done what she traveled across the world to do: kill her former mentor and Russian double agent Lena Smith. But, although Annie has gotten her revenge, she's hardly home free; it's not long before Russian commandos track her down and throw her into a Moscow prison.

With Annie MIA, a frustrated Joan blames herself for the mess, while Auggie puts the pieces together and vainly attempts to convince Arthur to sanction a risky rescue mission. Meanwhile, for days on end Annie holds her ground as an interrogator tries to get information out of her. But when he threatens to harm Simon's sister, Annie begins to grow desperate.

Good thing she's got a few good friends who aren't willing to leave her hanging. In a daring solo mission, Eyal Lavin (with some help from Auggie) manages to break Annie out of prison. Now on the run, the two of them must find a way out of the country, not a simple proposition with Annie topping Russia's Most Wanted list. After Annie and Eyal narrowly escape capture at the Moscow train station, the CIA hatches an even more desperate plan to get them out of Russia via a cargo plane on a remote army airfield. But if that last-ditch plan goes awry, Annie and Eyal just might be out of options...

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.
