no 13 baby

Though still allegedly dead, Annie is back on home turf—dangerous ground both physically and emotionally, with Henry gunning for “Jessica Matthews” and so many ways her cover could end up blown. She soon arranges a meet with Calder to deliver the laptop she found in Deric Hughes’s hotel room, and he passes it on to Auggie for decryption. As they work on cracking the computer, Annie pays a visit to Deric’s daughter, and learns about a cabin at Camp Hillcrest owned by Henry Wilcox. But when Calder leads a team to the cabin, it explodes before they can find anything, and Annie’s tip leads to nothing. 

Fortunately, Auggie and Eric Barber have some success with the laptop, and find two key pieces of intel: a coded message from Deric to Henry, and contact info for Nelson Smith, Henry’s money man in New York. 

Meanwhile, Calder tries to convince Annie and Auggie to keep apart, for safety’s sake, and Helen makes it clear that she wants back in to the CIA—and back into Auggie’s life. But neither she nor Annie can come in from the cold until Henry is stopped once and for all. And with Arthur’s trial date set in six weeks and Henry more dangerous than ever, the clock is running out for everyone.

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.
