Following Eyal's capture, Khalid Ansari makes Annie an offer: deliver the names of CIA assets working for his father, and he'll free Eyal. Risky as it is, Annie fears that there's no other way to save her friend. So with help from a local hacker, she finds a way to access the intel she needs via the CIA mainframe at the American Consulate in Amsterdam.

But before Annie can trade the information she's downloaded, she gets a surprise visitor: Auggie. Quickly realizing that he can't stop Annie from attempting to rescue Eyal, Auggie presents an alternate plan that could protect both Eyal and the CIA's assets. In a crowded flower market, Annie and Auggie put their plan in motion, managing to escape with Eyal. But when Annie learns that Khalid may soon be beyond the CIA's grasp, she knows she must put an end to his plotting once and for all.

Back in D.C., Annie—fresh off the news that Joan is bumping up her clearance level—gets a bad case of déjà vu when Henry Wilcox, just released from prison, summons her to the diner where Jai was killed. Annie is in for yet another shock later that night, when Auggie shows up at her place with a surprising revelation of his own...

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.
