Half a World Away

Half a World Away

Auggie is attending a huge jazz festival in Istanbul, Turkey. After meeting old friends and setting up recording equipment to capture the live music experience, Auggie returns to his hotel to mix and perfect the sound. But he's shocked upon hearing a conversation picked up from one of his many microphones. He instantly recognizes the voice: it belongs to the man who blinded him.

Meanwhile, in Langley, Annie is doing big favors for Auggie. When he asks her to look up the name Afran Felat Khani, a man whom Auggie thought was dead, she discovers that the file has been removed. Now, Annie must go to Baltimore to locate Khani's sister. This spurs Auggie — and the flight attendant, Franka, he's been bedding — to locate the voices he picked up on his recordings.

Auggie locates the voice in an Istanbul street vendor's booth, and must concern himself with what this villain from his past is up to today.

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.
