something against you

With Henry’s man dead but Henry still unaware of that fact, Annie and Sana are in a unique position: one step ahead of him. To keep Henry convinced that “Andrew Goodman” is still alive, Annie continues his mission: planting false intel on Sana’s fiancé’s computer linking him to the Copenhagen helicopter bombing. After Interpol takes David into custody, Annie manages to convince a distraught Sana to reach out to Henry for help. Having expected just such a call, he soon arrives in Geneva in the hope that he can rekindle his romance with his ex-wife, and that’s when Annie puts the rest of her plan in motion. 

In an attempt to track Henry’s financial transactions, she tries posing as Andrew using his cell phone and blackmailing Henry. But when Henry finds out that his alleged blackmailer—whose real name is Deric Hughes—is in fact lying dead at the morgue, both Annie and Sana are exposed—and in serious danger. 

Meanwhile, Auggie and Calder start the Langley rumor mill going to raise Henry’s doubts about Eric Brathwaite and drive him closer to Calder. And after getting a surprise visit from Helen, Auggie learns that she is still working with the Campbells, and following Henry to Geneva.

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.
