'Covert Affairs' Recap: The Traitor is Revealed
In tonight's episode, we finally learn who the Big Bad is and Annie (Piper Perabo) is forced to choose between love and loyalty.
Annie is betrayed!
In the intense final moments of tonight's episode, Annie's new boss/mentor (Sarah Clarke's Lena) sneaks into Annie's home and shoots both Simon and Annie, revealing herself as the traitor all of those USA promos warned us about.
Given that Piper Perabo is the star of the show, I doubt we need to worry about Annie's survival, but Simon's fate is less certain. While we will certainly learn more about Lena's lying ways in next week's episode, one can assume she either ordered the hit on Jai or she is working for the people who did. Whatever her involvement in Jai's untimely demise, Lena has set Annie up to take the fall.
All season, we have seen Lena continually coax Annie into pursuing a romance with Simon and now, she has managed to put together a folder chock-full of damning 'evidence' -- one she just presented to Arthur (Peter Gallagher) -- as proof of Annie's betrayal. But does Arthur really believe Lena's lies? And who will be the one to bring the truth to light and take Lena down?
