Covert Affairs Season 5 (2014) Spoilers!

I love this show. I don't know why, Annie is a nitwit and the story lines are so unrealistic...but I do love it. Glad it's back starting tonight!

I'm glad Annie will be back from the dead. Looking forward to seeing how everyone, including Annie, handles that.

I thought it was cancelled as well, which is why I stopped watching halfway through S4.
Just deleted the back half of S4 off the DVR about a week ago.

Don't have enough time to watch everything anyway.

I thought it would definitely be canceled, so I stopped watching mid season too. Annie is the worst spy EVER.

I agree, Annie is a terrible spy. But I still love this show!

So all of you who gave up on the show, ketchup! (obscure Pulp Fiction reference.)

Looks like Annie didn't escape unscathed from her time being dead. What did she give herself a shot of?

And they are giving her a new love interest. They so screwed up her romance with Auggie (we have to tell each other everything even though we're both spies) that I don't see how that relationship will ever work. I liked the actor when he was on Body of Proof (Nic Bishop) so hopefully he will be good on this show, too.

I used to hate Arthur and Joan, but last season really turned that around. I'm glad to see them still there, though I hope they don't spend much time on the baby storyline.

I'm surprised, but not disappointed, that Annie's sister has stayed gone.

Annie's sister and niece aren't even mentioned any more. They got disappeared.

Annie goes off the grid for four months and the CIA takes her back after one interview and with suspicions that she's not telling the truth?

Not looking forward at all to Annie's new love interest. He's either going to be dirty or at least somewhat dingy and at least one plot line will probably be about the complications of their relationship.

How can Annie still do undercover work? You'd think all the top terror networks would know about the hot blond CIA spy by now.

I would suspect that her new love interest is indeed very dirty.. and with Arthur taking the job, will find this out, and by seasons end, everyone is supposed to be where/with whom they are supposed to be with.

She uses Jedi Mind tricks instead of disguises.

I couldn't decide if Annie's episode was anxiety related, or if she had damage to her body. I'm sure this is related to her 4 months of living 'at the beach' after killing whatshisface at the end of last season.

I seriously doubt that the CIA would take her back after being gone for 4 months.

I like Joan and Arthur more now than I did before. Her relationship with Auggie is just weird. The new possible love interest is going to be this season's bad guy - at least that's my assumption.

I miss the Mossad dude. He was a much better bad/good guy.

She kills the vast majority of them, so word doesn't get around fast.

It's her red VW that always drives me nuts. She tails people in the car that just screams LOOK AT ME because of the color, and no one notices. She walks behind someone in high heeled boots and no one turns around at the sound.

Eyal (Oded Fehr)? Yes, I miss him, too. I love the actor and the character.

Maybe she can wear a different wig every week like Sydney did on Alias season 1.

Or at least use a scarf over her hair!

Yes, but it was an assignment from her boss who turned out to be a baddie.

I just binged watched the "Essential Episodes" on Apple TV to get up to speed.
I am enjoying it as a companion to Homeland and to some extent 24.

I am trying to think of another TV show that does real remotes all over the globe like this one.
Everybody else just tries to fake it with stock footage.

She has only been a agent a year or so you might give her a chance, Her sister moved to Cal. for her job is why she is gone.
I think she does a pretty good job as a learning agent. And learning in the field of Hard Knocks

It's that old double standard. Sure, let's show the shirtless guy, and all is great. But show a shirtless woman and all the prudes go bonkers.

I take this show for what it is...Mindless summer fare in the same vein as Burn Notice and Royal Pains. Yeah, the CIA is going to take what was a former rogue agent back with barely a questioning and put her on a top assignment almost immediately . That's just not going to happen.

BTW, my speculation is that Annie worked for the guy that Arthur is now working for. Obviously he asked Arthur about her, so there's SOME connection.

It's stupid fun.

Well, to be fair, Calder made it clear that there would be more questioning after the mission. This is what made it realistic.

I don't think she worked for him. We saw Annie question him earlier in the show, when he diverted his plane to meet her. They spoke to each other on the tarmac, and it appeared to be the first time they'd met. They introduced themselves to each other, and just before he got back on his plane, he asked her for a date sometime in the future.

It seemed obvious that the McQuaid guy was majorly involved in the whole bomb the building scam, since he led Annie to the Mustang with the dead trader. It was so obvious that maybe he is supposed to be a red herring. But this show is so dumb that it is almost impossible to predict (the really smart shows and really dumb shows are impossible to predict, only the average shows can be predicted...)

My speculation is that she's not aware she even worked for him. She's obviously sick from something....maybe he did something to her. Or she worked for his underlings and didn't know it. Something like that. With this show, who knows?
