Covert Affairs came back with a bang yesterday in their Season 4 Premiere.
Before I begin, I must admit that I haven't fully watched the last few episodes of the past season, but it actually didn't make that much of a difference unless you aren't aware of what happened between Annie and Auggie and Annie and Henry Wilcox.
But anyway, the show started with a "last time on Covert Affairs" montage, which was nice. Then, it jumped right into the action, with Annie and Hill Harper's character, Calder Michaels, shooting at one another. Right before you see the end result, the screen flashes back to 10 weeks prior. This will likely bring us into the season finale later on.
The episode in general was amazing. It was filled with plenty of twists and turns and keeps the viewer on the edge of their seat for almost the entire time. I must warn you that if you're not a fan of Annie and Auggie being together, you may want to skip part of the episode, as it is Annie/Auggie heavy. BUT if you're like me and are cheering for them (although I KNOW something's going to happen to them b/c there's no way they're already together now and will stay together), then you'll really enjoy their scenes.
Joan and Arthur were also fantastic in this, despite Joan only being in it for a few minutes. I like how Kari's pregnancy has been brought into the show and is actually enhancing the storyline. But oh my, Arthur, Arthur, Arthur. MAJOR plot twist(s)! I really can't wait to see how this affects Joan and Arthur's relationship, ESPECIALLY now that Joan is pregnant! (Does he even know yet???)
And on a final note, Henry Wilcox still annoys me, and I'm not sure how I feel about Hill Harper's character. I mean, I think his acting is fantastic, but there's something sketchy about Clader. We shall see!
And I lied. My final thought is that I really hope they bring Ben back soon, as well as Eyal. I'm actually pretty upset that they haven't brought Ben back yet, especially given how his story ended the last time he was on the show. And also, that thing about it being Jai's birthday? I really would have thought that they would have actually done something about it, but maybe they were all too busy with their lives. (And was going to Colombia something that Annie just did? Did she use her vacation days?)
Needless to say, I'm really excited for next week's episode, as well as the entire rest of the season, and I can't wait to see how the plot plays out into the finale. And let's hope for even more Annie/Auggie scenes! Ahhh! I just love them together!
Rating: 4.8/5 (I was going to go for 5/5, but there are some things that still confuse me about the plot so.)
