Tv Season Info

The third season starts off with a bang when Annie (Piper Perabo), shaken after witnessing a friend die in a car explosion, is reassigned to work under Lena Smith (guest star Sarah Clarke), whose approach to intelligence gathering differs from Joan's (Kari Matchett). Annie's first assignment is to investigate Russian-born businessman and suspected spy Simon Fischer (Richard Coyle), a mission that pushes her into new territory. Auggie (Christopher Gorham) enters new territory of his own when he takes a spot at the head of a department and proposes to Parker (Devin Kelley).

I never thought I'd be rooting for Annie and Auggie to make a romance work.

The first half of Covert Affairs' third season gave us some of the very best storytelling and character growth we've ever seen on the USA Network staple.

The truth is that all of the changes I've seen so far have made a definite improvement on the show.

Covert Affairs returned with a bang to start season three, but it was where things went after the shocking opening that made "Hang On to Yourself" a great beginning to this Covert summer.

The smartest thing of all about Covert Affairs is the casting.

Jul 10, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The biggest, smartest change the writers made was to give Annie a purpose, a tangible season-long arc that finally made the central character the most interesting aspect of the show.

Audience Reviews for Covert Affairs: Season 3

Coffee doesn't grow in Eritrea. The coffee is found in the highlands of Ethiopia.

Convoluted story lines doesn't quite interfere with the entertainment.

With a substantially dangerous tone smarter and further character development than ever and major shifts in the plot the 3rd Season of this show is it's most successful yet
