i've been waiting for you

Late at night, a surprise visitor shows up at Annie’s door: Auggie. Her very recent ex isn’t there to rehash their breakup; he’s there to work. He has a mission in mind, and sees no reason why he and Annie shouldn’t continue to work together. 

Annie agrees, so soon she’s off to Edinburgh to track down Teo in the hopes that he’ll agree to work with her. And after some persuasion—and some opening up—on her part, he does. With help from Arthur and Joan, Annie and Teo put a plan in motion: back in the U.S., Teo poses as a CIA prisoner and talks to his former ALC brother Eduardo, the terrorist Calder took into custody during the raid in Colombia. Eduardo has been refusing to talk to the CIA, but he opens up to his brother-in-arms about what he was doing meeting with Henry Wilcox in the jungle. It’s a huge revelation for Annie and Teo, who learn that Henry was behind numerous terrorist acts, including the bombing that killed Teo’s mother. 

Unfortunately, the mission soon comes to an abrupt end, when Calder and an unknown attacker arrive. Though Annie and Teo make it out alive, they’re not going to have it easy moving forward. As Teo disappears again, dead set on killing the man responsible for his mother’s death, Annie faces a new threat: Calder, who’s now coming after her and Auggie with everything he’s got.

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.
