Suffragette City

As Annie and Simon lay bleeding on the kitchen floor, a deliveryman fortuitously sent by Danielle stumbles upon them and calls for help. Though it's too late for Simon, Annie is rushed to the hospital in critical condition after sustaining two gunshot wounds to the chest. And unfortunately for Annie, her problems don't end there: as she lays helpless and comatose in the hospital, her mind wandering though the events that brought her to this point, the CIA investigates her for treason.

For Lena Smith, shooting Annie and Simon was just the beginning of her devious plan. She's determined to frame Annie as a CIA leak, and so far she's doing a pretty good job of it-even Arthur seems convinced. But when Auggie catches wind of what's happening, he refuses to accept for even a second that Lena's accusations could be true, and will stop at nothing to clear Annie's name.

His investigations soon lead him to the cobbler who created the fake passport Annie used to travel with Simon to Cuba. Unfortunately, Auggie is a few moments too late; the forger is dead by Lena's hand. But although Lena is crafty, Auggie manages to put the pieces together. Now, with help from Joan, he'll have to find the evidence to clear Annie's name and prove that Lena is the true traitor-before Lena puts Annie in any more danger.

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.
