USA‘s hot property Covert Affairs is returning on November 1st, and I have a very special “Jet Setter Pack” giveaway to celebrate. The series left off in pretty tricky circumstances at the end of the summer, and we kick things of with “Wake Up Bomb,” an episode that changes things up a bit for Annie.
As I’m sure you know, Annie’s hopes of having a normal life (and speaking to her sister) went out the window when last we saw her, at least for the immediate future, and Annie has to move on to a degree. It’s tricky situations all around now, as Annie’s latest assignment doesn’t seem to go too well.
Make sure you tune in, because not only is this a great episode, but there are interesting things in store right around the corner… including more focus on Auggie.
Check out more info below, including some clips, and be sure to enter!
“The Wake-Up Bomb”
After failing a mission in Rio, Annie finds herself with no active operations, and begins to experience just how lonely being a CIA operative can be. But she’s quickly provided with a new assignment when she meets a chef with ties to the Basque separatist movement, ETA.
Guest Stars: Santiago Cabrera, Matias Varela
USA Network’s hit original series COVERT AFFAIRS returns for the second half of its sophmore season on Tuesday, November 1 at 10/9c. Recently renewed for a third season of 16 episodes, the series stars Golden Globe-nominated Piper Perabo (“Coyote Ugly,” “Beverly Hills Chihuahua”), Christopher Gorham (“Ugly Betty,” “Jake 2.0”), Kari Matchett (“Invasion”), Anne Dudek (“House,” “Mad Men”), Sendhil Ramamurthy (“Heroes,” “It’s a Wonderful Afterlife”) and Peter Gallagher (“The O.C.,” “American Beauty”). The critically-acclaimed international spy drama, COVERT AFFAIRS, stars Piper Perabo as Annie Walker, a young CIA operative whose exceptional linguistic skills make her invaluable to the Agency.
This summer’s mid-season finale was left with Annie finally forced to confess the truth of her job to her sister, Danielle (Anne Dudek), forever changing the balance of their relationship and threatening Annie’s hope of living a “pseudo-normal” personal life outside the agency. With Jai’s (Sendhil Ramamurthy) position in the DPD in flux, we’re left to question where his true loyalties lie. Annie continues to transform into a seasoned operative with more high-octane adventures spanning the globe.
Guest appearances for the second season continuation include Oded Fehr, Gregory Itzin, Devin Kelly and Santiago Cabrera. From Universal Cable Productions, COVERT AFFAIRS is executive produced by Doug Liman and David Bartis through Hypnotic and written and executive produced by Matt Corman and Chris Ord.

Meet Annie Walker (Piper Perabo, Coyote Ugly): smart, stunning and the CIA’s newest field operative in one of their most secretive branches. Suddenly summoned by headquarters for active duty one month before training is over, she’s quickly thrown into a shadowy world full of cons, killers and international crime rings. What she doesn’t know is there’s something—or someone—from her past that her bosses want badly enough to put her in harm’s way. She just has to survive long enough to find out why. From the producer of the Bourne films comes the action-packed first season of the smash-hit espionage series, with co-stars Christopher Gorham (Ugly Betty) and Sendhil Ramamurthy (Heroes), and guest stars Peter Gallagher (The O.C.), Eriq La Salle (ER), Lauren Holly (NCIS), Liane Balaban (Last Chance Harvey) and Anna Chlumsky (My Girl). Critics are praising it as “the best new drama series of the season” (Francine Brokaw, suite101.com).
