USA Network Covert Affairs - Week 3 Recap
Yeah, I know, I am behind on my recaps of USA Network's Covert Affairs. However, I am still finding people who have not watched this wonderfully entertaining show. It is Labor Day Weekend and my labor of love will be to re-watch my favorite new show. I want you to love Annie and Auggie but decide for yourself about the rest of the secret and suspicious CIA "company" members.
No new regular characters to introduce this week. Likewise, no new plot lines. Instead Annie gains more experience as a CIA agent who never finished her training at "the farm."
This week she flirts with a college pre-med student Diego Suarez in order to get to her primary target, his sister. Julia works in a bank in Caracas, Venezuela and is the mistress of government official, Victor Ponces, who is stealing money from the U.S. Oil companies to fund terrorist groups.
Based upon three weeks of watching covert affairs, one would get the impression that the CIA approaches all missions by the seat of their pants since nothing ever goes as planned.
Annie does get to Diego, who agrees to go back to Venezuela to facilitate a meeting between the "station agent" and Julia. Of course, for some unknown reason, Victor has the agent killed necessitating Annie to step in and turn Julia into a CIA asset.
Interestingly, Annie's life is juxtaposed to Julia's current situation. We learn that Annie is a military brat who has moved all her life. Her coping mechanism is to take pictures and treasures of each location and put them in a shoebox and bury them in the yard. In another scene between her sister and her, we find out Annie never puts down roots and builds walls around her.Continued on the next page
