Once again, I'm happy to report that Covert Affairs continues to improve with each passing week. While this episode wasn't as action-packed as we're used to, it was impressive because all three of the seemingly disparate plotlines weaved together to form a cohesive story in the end. And like last week, Annie Walker was shown to be a more believable character, using her wit and intelligence to make up for her lack of experience in the field without coming across as a superwoman who can do no wrong.
The crisis of the week concerned yet another intelligence leak concerning top secret military operations in foreign countries. (Intelligence leaks have been a consistent issue in these past few shows - maybe some different types of problems are in order?) To figure out the source of the leak, the DPD narrowed its focus to a group of United States Senators with security clearance and intel about the missions. Annie went undercover and infiltrated the office of Senator Jarvis (D.W. Moffett) to find out if he was the traitor. Just like last week's inspired cameo by Eriq La Salle, I have to give Covert Affairs a lot of credit for yet again casting the perfect actor in an important role. Any fan of Friday Night Lights knows D. W. Moffett's work as sleazy, arrogant Joe McCoy, so he was a nice choice to play the role of a potentially corrupt politician.
