"Covert Affairs" season 4 continues next week with episode 7, "Crackity Jones," and on Wednesday, Aug. 21, USA Network released a preview teasing something—or rather, someone—that could drive a wedge between Annie (Piper Perabo) and Auggie (Christopher Gorham).
As the season began, transitioning from friends and coworkers to more seemed to be a bit too easy for Annie and Auggie, and recent "Covert Affairs" episodes have stirred up some drama for the couple. She learned that he was married, but he told her that his wife was dead. However, "Space (I Believe In)" ended with Henry Wilcox dropping a bombshell about Helen: "That last few days, I've learned quite a bit about Auggie's ex, Helen Hanson. Ask him if he's talked to her recently." When Annie protested she was dead, he replied, "Is she?" Uh-oh.
In this next episode, Annie meets her match in a seasoned operative who teams up with her to stop the illegal sale of deadly weapons. Meanwhile, Auggie must tackle his own past demons, and Calder Michaels (Hill Harper) becomes even more suspicious of Annie. It is all leading up to those brief clips we've had of a few weeks from now, which, as far as we know to this point, end with him proclaiming her dead.
The "Crackity Jones" promo to the left shows that someone knew about Helen being alive, but it wasn't Auggie. It was Arthur (Peter Gallagher), who may very well deserve that punch Auggie throws his way. And about the whole "no more secrets" for Annie and Auggie, well, he tries to defend himself with, "I have secrets even I can't remember." That's not really going to cut it, Auggie. Is this going to drive a wedge between Annie and Auggie? Will they be able to overcome this, or are their days of being happy together behind them for the foreseeable future? Plus, don't forget to check out the slideshow for the promotional photos USA Network has released.
"Covert Affairs" season 4 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on USA Network. What do you think of the episode 7 "Crackity Jones" promo and photos?
