Houses of the Holy

Clandestine U.S. operations in Pakistan and Afghanistan are not going as planned. Each time a Hellfire drone drops a bomb on a suspected terrorist, the target isn't there. The government thinks it's a leak.

DPD is given the task of finding the leak in the CIA and Intelligence community, which they believe starts with a U.S. senator. High treason is the charge if Annie and Jai can get close enough to their respective senators and bring them down. 

Annie is assigned to spy on Senator Gil Jarvis, a committee chair. Posing as a Smithsonian private art curator, she discovers that Jarvis has secret meetings at his office on Tuesday nights. When Annie works her magic to get close enough to the office that evening, she discovers something she never expected about Senator Gil Jarvis' extra-curricular activities.

Annie also catches her brother-in-law in a lie when she sees him coming out of a hotel after he claimed he had to work late. Could it be an affair?

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.
