Crackity Jones

Now that Henry has intervened and spared Annie from the FBI’s investigation into Seth’s death, Annie has a new set of problems. During her confrontation with Henry, he dropped a bombshell: Auggie’s former CIA wife and partner Helen might not be dead after all. Though a stunned Auggie can’t believe it, the shocking revelation turns out to be true. And not only is Helen alive, but she’s the same mysterious dark-haired woman who’s been working with Arthur.

When Annie and Auggie question Arthur, he admits that he’s been supervising Helen’s off-book missions for the past seven years. And thanks to Helen’s work investigating arms traffickers, she has supplied him with some valuable intel: Henry Wilcox was behind the disappearance of the five missiles during Annie’s recent mission in Vienna, and he’s about to take possession of them. Knowing that Henry will try to use the weapons against him in some way, Arthur sends Helen and Annie to Lyon to get to the missiles before Henry does.

Meanwhile, back in D.C., Auggie solicits top-secret help from his tech buddies to decode the image found on Seth’s flash drive, and Calder develops suspicions about Annie after looking into the records from her recent mission in Vienna. And as Annie and Helen work together in Lyon, it becomes clear that her return and Henry’s constant machinations are creating their own complications. Can Annie and Auggie’s relationship withstand these new challenges, or could this be the end for them?

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.
