Good Advices

It's Annie's birthday and Auggie is back with the team. Joan skips the cake and gives Annie her next orders. Annie gets excited when she hears Paris is the destination. She's to cultivate an asset named Salma Devrient who works at the Syrian embassy.

On her quest to cultivate Salma into an asset, Annie must follow her throughout Paris: museums, streets and shoe stores. After "obtaining" an identical $7,000 dollar handbag, Annie does a simple bag switch to find any intel Salma might be carrying on her person.

With a little patience, Annie gets a call from Salma to arrange a meeting to exchange the bags. At a café, the two end up bonding over good wine and Annie discovers Salma is seeing a man named George. That evening, Annie invites Salma to a black-tie event at the Louvre. There, they both get an unexpected surprise as she continues to manipulate Salma into an asset.

Back in Langley, Joan isn't happy about Annie's spending spree in Paris. She pushes Annie to stay focused because the Agency has intelligence that a Syrian national named Chemical Kanaan has entered the country. He's no friend to a peaceful world and he's at the top of an international wanted list. Salma might be the key to finding him.

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.
