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

The critically acclaimed original, COVERT AFFAIRS, follows the pursuits of CIA operative Annie Walker, whose exceptional linguistic skills and killer instinct take her on dangerous top-secret assignments around the globe. Last season, Annie traveled to Russia in pursuit of her former boss turned double agent Lena Smith (guest star Sarah Clarke), who shot her twice in the chest and killed Simon (guest star Richard Coyle), an asset and the man Annie was falling in love with. Thanks to a dramatic rescue led by Auggie (Christopher Gorham), Annie escaped her Russian prison cell and returned home. Back in the States, Auggie made a dramatic, long-awaited move when he finally kissed Annie resulting in the reveal of their romantic feelings for one another. 

Season four picks up with even more complications at the agency, when Annie aligns with the infamous former head of the Department of Clandestine Services, Henry Wilcox (guest star Gregory Itzin), in a dangerous, undercover mission that puts those closest to her in jeopardy. Hill Harper will play Calder Michaels, an ambitious CIA station chief based in Latin America.  Intelligent, charismatic and a bit cocky, Michaels ascended to a very high position at a relatively young age and is plotting his way into a bigger position back in Washington. In his journey for greater power, he will attempt to make Annie and Auggie his allies, but his questionable actions will cause them to doubt his intentions.  Recurring guest stars this season will include Latin telenovela star Manolo Cardona (“Beverly Hills Chihuahua”) and Michelle Ryan (“Bionic Woman”). COVERT AFFAIRS is shot on location in Toronto, ON, and international shooting locations this season include Medellín, Columbia; Lyon, France; Rome, Italy; Vienna, Austria; Frankfurt, Germany; Copenhagen, Denmark and Taipei, Taiwan.
