9:30pm – Wednesday, April 20 on FOUR
Weeks after a communications blackout reunited Auggie (Christopher Gorham) with Natasha, CIA newbie Annie (Piper Perabo) will be forced to work with her former beau, Ben, in the Covert Affairs season finale, screening on Wednesday, April 20th at 9:30pm on FOUR.
“The finale is Annie’s version of the Auggie episode. [That] was such an overwhelming and emotional episode for Auggie, and the finale is that for Annie,” Christopher Gorham explains.
“She has to confront Ben and their past. A lot of different things come to a head. It’s very poignant for Annie and wraps a lot of things, but also leaves a few loose ends hanging.”
That’s because Ben (Eion Bailey), who first resurfaced two weeks ago, turns up at the CIA headquarters, and the former couple are dispatched to Sri Lanka to rescue Ben’s former asset.
“You see a deepening of the Auggie-Annie relationship. Auggie doesn’t get to get out in the field very much, but he is very present on Annie’s mission and definitely does his part to help her out,” Gorham says.
But that doesn’t mean a romance is in the cards – yet.
“I think it’s a potential down the road. Auggie’s tortured. He’s very reluctant to let people in,” the actor says.
“Of all the current characters in his life, he’s closest to Annie, but she still doesn’t know how he lost his sight, which is a conversation you would have early on in a friendship. He doesn’t give up details like that easily.”
But will all this change following this week’s season finale? Find out when Covert Affairs concludes its first season on Wednesday, April 20th at 9:30pm on FOUR.
