Trompe Le Monde

trompe le monde

Knowing it might be her last play, Annie has surrendered herself to Henry in the hope that she’ll be able to find an opportunity to take him out for good. As he keeps her in custody at his Hong Kong headquarters, revealing his plan to trade her to the MSS, Auggie works with the local CIA team to support Annie. 

Back in D.C., the attacks on Arthur and Joan coupled with Oliver’s revelations have turned the tide on Henry; the CIA is now fully aware of his dealings, and Arthur’s name has been cleared. 

Now, the question for everyone is how to bring Henry to justice. After a failed attempt by Brathwaite to use a CIA tactical team to cover his own tracks with Henry, Henry takes Annie to an MSS safehouse for the handover. But before the spy agency can take her in, she and Henry each make their escapes. Luckily, Annie has learned enough about how Henry thinks to quickly track him down. And this time when she finds him alone she’s ready to put an end to his plotting once and for all. 

But with Henry finally out of the picture, Annie still has to get out of Hong Kong, which won’t be easy with the MSS on the hunt. And even if she makes it out of China, one big question remains: after everything that’s transpired, will she be able to come in from the cold, or is the old Annie Walker gone for good? 

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.
