Now that she’s been officially declared dead, Annie has a new name, a new look, and a new mission: travel to Geneva and get close to Henry Wilcox’s ex-wife, Sana, in the hopes that she can help take Henry down. 

Meanwhile, things are swiftly changing at Langley. Eric Brathwaite and his new consultant Henry Wilcox are seemingly running the show, while Joan and Auggie have been exiled to low clearance level jobs. But that won’t stop them from continuing their work trying to nail Henry. As Joan, who believes Annie to be dead, uses what’s left of her Agency access to look into Henry’s finances, Auggie and Calder—the only people who know the truth about Annie—keep up a charade of hating each other while working together in secret to drive Henry and Eric apart. 

As her friends mourn and move forward with their missions, Annie makes progress of her own. She gets close to Sana though a grief support group, and soon lands a job at the investment firm run by Sana’s fiancé, David. But an encounter with one of Henry’s henchmen throws a wrench in Annie’s plan. Now, she’s got to deal with a dangerous prisoner and convince Sana that the only way for either of them to stay safe is to team up against Henry. 

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.
