All the Right Friends

All the Right Friends

Annie is tasked with picking up an FBI prisoner, Carlo, and bringing him to Argentina where Italian AISE operatives will take control of him. Carlo is an Italian journalist who knows more than he should, but Annie's not sure he isn't just another spy with a convincing cover. Carlo runs off into the distance after they touch down in Argentina. After catching up to Carlo, Annie sees a red-bearded assassin named Helmut Drum killing the pilot of the plane. After escaping the airstrip, Annie assures Carlo that her people in Langley will sort everything out.

They head in the direction of the Italian Embassy in Buenos Aires. But the higher-ups like the Italian AISE, Argentinean authority, and CIA are battling over how to clean up the mess. Meanwhile, Joan deals with the massive headache of a failed drop between three sovereign nations. She orders Jai to take over when Auggie is asked to speak with Arthur.

Annie and Carlo try to coexist until she can get him off her hands. Every time she takes off the cuffs, he tries to escape. Every time she calls an audible, he challenges her intelligence and makes a chauvinistic remark. And to make matters worse, Drum eventually catches up to them and more than one bullet is fired. Now Annie must pass through an Argentinean police checkpoint while being shot at from behind.

Big news back in Virginia: Auggie is offered a promotion by Arthur to head OCA. Auggie's shocked by this development. It's a career-making promotion but it would mean he'd never return to the field. He'd be marked "overt." It's a big decision.

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.
