Annie is on the hunt for Isaac Von Hagen. He has led her to Berlin, Germany, after she followed his international paper trail of money laundering for terrorists and tax-evaders. But in order to get to Von Hagen, Annie must make contact with his wife, Elsa. When she does, Elsa demands to speak to CIA honcho Arthur Campbell in person. The two have a deep history.

As Arthur heads to Berlin to rendezvous with Annie and Elsa, Joan takes over his spot in Langley. The history between Elsa and Arthur is not lost on Joan. So Joan orders Annie to spy on her husband and warns her not to trust Elsa, who was once part of the German Stasi. When Arthur and Elsa finally meet in Berlin, he convinces her to vouch for him with her husband so that he can infiltrate the money laundering activity as a client.

Annie must straddle her allegiance to both of her bosses during this operation. Elsa tells Annie that she has set up a meeting with Arthur and her husband. But she also tells Annie that Arthur should not accept Isaac's first business proposition because her husband will know it's a set-up. Annie will have to use her instincts to trust the right people.

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.
