Bang and Blame

Bang and Blame

Annie takes her niece to the Georgetown E.R. after she bumps her head. There, Annie meets Scott Weiss, a hunky doctor who brazenly asks her out on a date. But before the ink of Dr. Weiss' phone number is dry, Joan and Auggie approach Annie in the hospital parking lot. They have an emergency of their own.

Joan briefs Annie about a mole they need exposed at the CIA training facility. Roy Gaskins is a former CIA weapons tactics and current training officer at the Farm. He allegedly burned another CIA operative named Laura Taylor. Apparently, Gaskins was "turned" during an op in Afghanistan. Joan wants to charge him with treason, but they still need hard evidence, so they enlist Annie to re-enter CIA training as a cover. Problem is, if Annie accepts the mission and she's also burned, she'll be out of the CIA as well.

Annie arrives at Camp Peary, reports to Gaskins and is immediately thrown into his training operation without any pleasantries. He's an icy character, but Annie shines on the first weapons course, and gains the respect of her new fellow trainees and the trust of her target Roy Gaskins. She'll need both if she's going to expose the mole.

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.
