The Outsiders

The Outsiders

As a joint operation with the Polish government, Annie and Reva must hike in Poland to install "rock cameras" near the Belarus border. Annie is enjoying the outdoors, while Reva wishes she were back in the tech lab. But before they head home, Belarusian soldiers brandishing AK-47s suddenly surround them. Both are thrown in the back of a truck and Reva starts to panic because she's not a field operative. Annie stays cool.

The captured CIA agents are brought before the Belarus' secret police's top officer, Max Kupala. He recognizes that Annie is not just a "hiker" and her gadgets are not consumer brand. Kupala takes Annie and Reva to a remote and undisclosed location where he keeps them until they can be used as a bargaining chip for "urgent economic aid," loosely translated as ransom money.

Stateside, Joan must deal with red tape from the State Department for not having alerted the governmental agency of the operation. The State Department prefers to negotiate instead of paying the $60 million for Annie and Reva's safe release.

Meanwhile, Joan makes a call to Jai, who happens to be interviewing for a job in Berlin. The two set their differences aside in order to get Jai to Poland where he immediately begins tracking Annie and Reva's location. But if Annie and Reva are to escape, they'll need more than just Jai. They'll need to dig deep into their CIA training to stay undercover...

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.
