there goes my gun

With Henry and his $150 million worth of diamonds now in Hong Kong, Annie, Auggie and Calder make their way there to try to catch Henry before he disappears for good. 

Their only shot at finding Henry is tracking the diamonds he’s had smuggled into the country. At the diamond handoff, they get their hands on Henry’s courier; unfortunately he’d rather die than talk. But with unwitting help from the Hong Kong police, Annie manages to get a lead on the man who took possession of the diamonds. He turns out to be a spy with the MSS named Oliver Li, whom Annie manages to turn. 

Now, with Oliver on her side, Annie could be closer than ever to getting her hands on Henry. Meanwhile, back in D.C., Arthur and Joan get a promising lead of their own when Arthur realizes that his lawyer Bianca has been secretly working for Henry all along. 

But as always, Henry seems to be one step ahead. Thanks to a tip from Brathwaite, Henry knows that Calder and Auggie are in town, and anticipates that the meeting Oliver requests is a trap. Annie’s plan to get Henry is ruined, but luckily she and the team make it out alive with Oliver. But Henry is now in cleanup mode, sending his thugs to take care of loose ends. And two of those loose ends just might be Joan and Arthur…

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.
