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

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.
