This is Not America

Following their recent disgraces, Annie and Auggie have both been reassigned back to the DPD. But there's not much time to celebrate the reunion, because both have new orders: Auggie is entering mandated therapy and Annie is being sent to Israel on a new mission.

The CIA has learned that the Iranians have somehow gained access to American missile specs, and, to find out how that might have happened, Annie is sent to Jerusalem to make contact with Isaac Reiss, the rocket scientist who designed the missiles. Annie is delighted to find out that she'll be working with her old friend Eyal Lavin again, but dismayed to learn that he has orders to report back to the CIA on her conduct in the field. Still, the two forge ahead with their mission and make contact with Isaac. When he mentions a mysterious girlfriend whom Mossad's surveillance failed to find evidence of, Annie knows she's found the source of the intel leak-Isaac's unknowingly dating a spy.

Meanwhile, Arthur's ex-wife, Gina, has some exciting news: Arthur is on the shortlist to be named the Ambassador to China, a position he's dreamt of holding for some time. But, Joan is less than thrilled at the prospect of moving to Beijing, meaning the two have once again found themselves at an impasse.

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.
