Sound and Vision

Fresh off her trip to Morocco, Annie is looking forward to unpacking her bags and getting some much-needed rest. But as usual, the Agency has other plans for her. A Canadian couple, fronts for the Chinese, have been detained in Barcelona after trying to enter to purchase a powerful computer virus from a hacker named Red Rover. Joan sees an opportunity: send in Auggie and Annie, posing as Mr. and Mrs. Ken and Andrea Quinn, to make the buy. There is one small issue though, neither one of them work for her anymore, but that's not a problem.

So against Lena's wishes, Annie is sent to Barcelona with her "husband" Auggie, who is thrilled at the prospect of returning to the field. They successfully make the exchange, but are soon accosted by agents for the Chinese and lose the virus while making their escape. Joan is ready to call them home and Lena is eager to send Annie to Munich to meet up with Simon again, but before Annie can do either, she'll need to tie up loose ends in Barcelona. One thing is clear though: Auggie isn't going anywhere until he's proven he can still deliver in the field, which means that before the happy couple heads home, they'll need to track down—and try to turn—Red Rover.

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.
