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

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.
