Covert Affairs - The Complete Fifth SeasonAnnie Walker‘s (Piper Perabo) spy adventures come to an end in the final season of Covert Affairs. The Fifth Season introduces a new love interest for Annie in Ryan McQuaid (Nic Bishop), whose guilt or innocence in a terrorist plot against the United States takes up a big chunk of the season, and sees Annie leave the CIA over medical issues the Agency feel could compromise her effectiveness in the field.

Highlights include the season premiere which introduces McQuaid and brings Annie back into the CIA following her takedown of Henry Wilcox (Gregory Itzin), Annie going to work for McQuaid, Amy Jo Johnson joining the cast to investigate the Chicago bombing, Annie and McQuaid’s trip to Caracas, the final appearance of Eyal Lavin (Oded Fehr), Auggie (Christopher Gorham) getting lost in a conspiracy, the struggle to prove McQuaid’s innocence, Auggie’s abduction and torture by Aleksandre Belenko (Shawn Dowyle), the revelation of how Annie spent her summer, the return of Natasha (Liane Balaban), trips to Paris and Azerbaijan, and the final two episodes of taking down Belenko.

R.I.P. Annie Walker

Covert Affairs

Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that USA Network has cancelled Covert Affairs. Premiering in the summer of 2010 the show starred Piper Perabo as talented but green new agent Annie Walker who grew and blossomed into the Agency’s best field agent over the show’s five year run. Sadly, this ends the show on a cliffhanger with the futures of several characters still in doubt. It also leaves me with only a single USA show that I’m still watching (Graceland) for a network that has been a staple of my regular viewing for years. You will be missed Miss Walker but you gave us a great ride.

Despite some tense moments, and Belenko not giving up on his plans to kill Auggie (Christopher Gorham), the threesome manage to survive although what the future holds for Miss Walker is very murky as the season (and possibly series?) comes to a close.

Covert Affairs - Trigger Cut

Although various U.S. agencies are ready to close the case on the entire sordid affair by blaming Caitlyn Cooke (Perrey Reeves) for the inside information that led to terrorist attacks on U.S. soil, Annie (Piper Perabo) is a little less forgiving knowing that Aleksandre Belenko (Shawn Dowyle), an untouchable diplomat, is actually responsible for the attacks and for putting Ryan McQuaid (Nic Bishop) in a hospital bed where he still fights for his life.
