Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)

Scary Monsters

In the wake of the failed drone strike and Annie's discovery of the fake intel from Mossad, the CIA drills down as Arthur prepares to report before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Though Joan instructs Annie to stay away from Eyal, as usual Annie can't help but disobey—especially when Eyal shows up and informs her that Megan Carr, Khalid's girlfriend whom Annie had turned, is in danger. When Annie discovers that Megan is missing from her CIA safehouse and that Khalid's henchman Griffin Cole has been in the area, she fears the worst: Cole has abducted Megan so that Khalid can exact revenge for her betrayal.

As Annie and Eyal set off to West Virginia to track Cole and Megan, Auggie and the rest of the DPD work on sifting through intel to prove that Mossad played them—and try to figure out why. Turns out Mossad has an answer: Eyal went rogue and faked the photo himself because of a personal vendetta against Khalid. Though Annie can't believe that her friend would betray her, she's shocked when Eyal doesn't deny it.

But that revelation still doesn't explain Arthur's suspicion that Zamir Gerson, the Israeli Minister of Agriculture, is somehow connected. Nor does it prepare Annie and Eyal for what they learn when they finally track down Cole...

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.
