river euphrates

In the aftermath of Helen’s murder, Annie and Auggie finally get their long-awaited reunion; unfortunately, it’s both bittersweet and brief. Thanks to a secret note left by Helen, they learn that Nelson Smith, Henry’s money man, is a customs official in New York, which means now Annie is off to the Big Apple to track him down. And she’s not the only one heading to New York. When a tip from FBI agent Vincent Rossabi links Henry to stolen CIA funds, Joan decides to head to Brooklyn to the diamond dealership where it seems Henry is laundering his misbegotten money. 

As Joan makes her way to New York, Annie, who’s already there, finds herself on the wrong end of a gun held by Nelson Smith. Ultimately, she manages to strike a deal with him: if he lets her go, she’ll take Henry down, freeing the out-of-his-depth customs agent from Henry’s clutches. Smith agrees, giving her three days and some valuable intel: Henry has been moving his money via a local diamond dealer in anticipation of an imminent move to Hong Kong. 

That intel leads Annie to the same diamond dealership Joan was checking out, where the two finally come face to face. After Joan recovers from the shock of seeing Annie alive, they loop in Calder and ask him to bring in Henry before he can escape. Auggie was already one step ahead, and his team moves in to take Henry into custody shortly before Calder’s. The only problem? They can’t find Henry Wilcox. He’s in the wind, and whatever his next move is, it’ll no doubt be big—and quite possibly deadly.

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.
