Letter Never Sent

Just before Annie is set to take an R&R trip to Sweden, she stops by her sister's house and finds out that Danielle's husband has been cheating on her with two women in the past year. Annie invites her sister to come along on the vacation.

In Stockholm, the sisters meet a childhood friend named Magnus. The handsome Magnus is not a kid anymore and there's instant chemistry between him and Danielle. And what vacation wouldn't be complete in Annie's world if Auggie didn't call from Langley and put her on a "time sensitive" operation to pick up and deliver an eyes-only envelope? Annie agrees, but when she picks up the intel from a "Petr" and heads to a black-tie event to deliver it, the recipient mistakes Danielle for Annie and the hand-off has to be scrapped. Annie goes to return the envelope to Petr, as is protocol, but finds him dead. Annie's vacation has been cut short.

Back in the States, Henry and Jai Wilcox are setting themselves up to sell-out Arthur Campbell and take over operations when Jai is called in front of an inquest board to explain an unauthorized operation. And Auggie chooses to submit himself to an experimental new optical treatment that could return his eyesight.

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.
