Glass Spider

Glass Spider

After discovering Jai's safe house, filled with research regarding Simon Fischer and a possible intel leak at Langley, Annie and Auggie share the news with Arthur. With Simon now a suspect in Jai's death and Arthur assembling a team to bring him in, Annie realizes it's time to come clean about her relationship with Simon. 

Backed by Lena, she fills Arthur and Joan in and persuades Arthur to let her try to bring Simon in herself. To that end, Annie arranges to meet Simon-who happens to be in town-at a local mall. But the mission is a failure: when the rendezvous is interrupted by a gunman, Simon and Annie are forced to flee. Then, despite Annie's efforts to convince him to stay, Simon says goodbye and disappears.

But a new lead turns up when, while examining surveillance footage of the mall shooting, Annie recognizes the gunman: he was at the diner the day Jai was killed. Though the CIA soon identifies him as explosives expert and assassin-for-hire Leo Brewer and links him to the bomb that killed Jai, they still don't know who Brewer is working for. With Brewer more inclined to eat a bullet than talk to the CIA and Simon still in the wind, the mystery is a long way from being solved. And unfortunately for Annie, the investigation may be about to take a surprising turn-one that will land her in greater danger than ever before.

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.
