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

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.
