Around the Sun

Around the Sun

Danielle and Annie start their day with a grueling training run to prepare for the Marine Corps Marathon. On her way to work, Annie's nearly killed by an "alpha Barbie" who's distracted with her phone while driving.

Meanwhile, Auggie has accepted a position as head of Office of Congressional Affairs. He's moving up. Auggie's replacement? The same "alpha Barbie" named Reva Kline who nearly killed Annie in the parking lot. Reva is a cold, emotionless agent who comes from the land of statistics, charts and graphs. She's socially inept and Annie is not her biggest fan.

Annie gets orders to infiltrate a NASA satellite maintenance team that may have a staff member giving intelligence to Colombian FARC rebels. Annie meets Will and his son Charlie at a Mars Day ceremony at NASA headquarters in D.C. She's impressed with Charlie's enthusiasm for science, space, and his dad's accomplishments, but his father has all the makings for a motive. Will's underpaid, recently divorced, and NASA has refused funding for his satellite-refueling project.

After being invited over to his house for a barbecue, Reva, Jai and Annie decide to bug Will's home. As Annie, Will and Charlie grill on the roof, Jai slips into the house unnoticed to plant the bugs.

Later, as Annie and Danielle continue training for the Marine Corps Marathon, Annie realizes that she has a tail: a woman with braids. She sends Danielle home so that she can stop the pursuit herself - all this after Danielle confides in Annie about her marriage falling apart. Annie must play sister and protector at the same time.

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.
