Hang Wire

hang wire

At Arthur and Joan’s behest, Annie is off to Denmark, where Henry Wilcox is attending an energy conference. Close on his heels is Teo Braga, there to finally take down Henry. But Annie can’t let Teo make this a suicide mission, even if it would mean the death of a man no one would particularly mourn, so she intervenes to foil his assassination attempt. The only problem is, that means Henry is still able to play the rest of his hand. And this time, there may be nothing Annie and Teo can do to stop him. 

After being kidnapped by Henry and his henchmen, Annie and Teo watch as Henry puts his plan into play, using one of the missing stolen missiles in a fatal attack that he plans to pin on Teo and, by extension, Arthur and everyone else. Though Annie and Teo manage to escape, the fugitives might not be able to get out of this one unscathed – or alive. 

Meanwhile, Calder has taken Auggie into custody after finding Seth’s flash drive in Auggie’s safe. Despite their current conflict and past antagonism, Auggie begins to suspect that Calder might not be a Henry Wilcox pawn after all. But with disaster unfolding in Denmark and Annie on the run, it’s hard to know whom to trust…

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.
