Horse to Water

Horse to Water

When an old American operative is gunned down in Russia, Arthur pays a visit to a Virginia super-max prison. While there, he speaks with a former spy, Max Langford, who is serving a life sentence for treason. Arthur walks away from the meeting positive that Langford is behind the hit in Moscow.

This all means that Annie is torn away from a marathon she was to run with her sister and placed on the operation instead. Joan briefs the team at Langley and tells them to demolish the intel ring that Langford is running out of his prison cell. The focus is Langford's two daughters, Grace and Bebe, the only two people who have spoken to him at the prison.

Annie's assignment is Grace, a horse veterinarian. In order to get close to her, Annie will have to pose as a journalist for a horse magazine. Grace is apprehensive at first, but eventually allows Annie access. And after tailing Grace to a clandestine meeting in the woods, Annie finds the "veterinarian" handing off intel to an infamous arms dealer named Adnan Al-Raheeb. It looks like treason runs in the family.

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.
