Covert Affairs - There Goes My Gun

In Hong Kong to end the game with Henry Wilcox (Gregory Itzin) once and for all Annie (Piper Perabo), Auggie (Christopher Gorham), and Calder (Hill Harper) can’t have any mistakes. Of course that means things start immediately going wrong. After failing to grab Henry’s courier, and the only link they have to the spy in Hong Kong, Annie plays a hunch and uses the Hong Kong Police to identify the man the courier handed-off Wilcox’s $200 million in diamonds. Although successful, the man turns out to be a Chinese spy (Carl Ng) which presents a new obstacle which Annie turns into a new opportunity by cutting a deal with the man to give up Henry in return for allowing the spy to keep all of Henry’s diamonds.

Covert Affairs - Levitate Me

News of Teo’s (Manolo Cardona) death, and that the terrorist people believe is responsible for the attack in Denmark is Arthur‘s (Peter Gallagher) son, leaves Arthur under military arrest, Joan (Kari Matchett) relieved of her duties and hospitalized with stress-caused pregnancy complications, and Annie hunted and alone in the cold in Germany. That doesn’t stop our heroine from setting out to take down Henry Wilcox (Gregory Itzin) and get some justice for her fallen friend. Thankfully Annie still has some friends in the CIA including Auggie (Christopher Gorham) who, despite still being under review, ropes Barber (Dylan Taylor) and another tech into getting Annie the intel she needs to find out what Henry was doing in Frankfurt in the hours leading up the attack.
