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

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.
