  • Pretty good.

    Not my favourite episode of the season, but certainly still had plenty to offer. The developments in DC were not compelling for me today - didn't like the way the Auggie love triangle finished off today, but we'll see where it goes next I suppose.

    As for Annie and McQuaid, there were some interesting scenes and some of the action was really good. The drone strike scene was very bizarre the way he just cut Annie loose and Annie was able to take him by surprise - that was a rookie mistake by someone everyone at the CIA looked up to...

    All up though, a decent episode. Hoping we get back to some greater heights that the last couple of episodes have given us.moreless
  • Brink Of The Clouds

    Definitely an enjoyable episode of Covert Affairs here. This episode had an intriguing storyline, it had edge of your seat action, that's really all you can ask for.
  • Not Over Yet

    I was totally absorbed by this episode.

    I loved watching Annie, Auggie & Joan work as a team they make a great trio.

    I am so over Calder's Subplot I so hope it is the last we see of his 'lady

    Hayley is sure digging deep into Annie and it looks like her secret is going to come out soon.

    Ryan McQuaid's unyielding support of Annie while they were on their joint, Op this week was truly awesome, I am loving their dynamic more and more, I just really don't want them to be romantically linked.

    Auggie's triangle totally blew up in his face, I kinda wasn't surprised because I had thought something like that would happen, it just leaves the door wide open now for Annie & Auggie to further reconnect which I am so jazzed about!

    Roger Auggie's paranoid 'chemically' imbalanced friend brought him some intriguing intel at the end of this episode and I for one am crazy excited for next week!

    The Chicago Op defiantly isn't over yet!moreless
