Covert Affairs Review: "Fool in the Rain" Episode 9

Covert Affairs delivered an intriguing revelation to viewers this week, but it took a sloppy, clumsy episode to get us there.

Am I intrigued by the fact that Jai seems to have played some role in Ben's disappearance and was even present in Sri Lanka years ago? Absolutely. But I wish "Fool in the Rain" had led us there in a less haphazard manner. It was probably my least favorite episode of what's been a great first season.

First, how stupid are they making Annie's sister out to be?!? It's frustrating enough to watch a great actress such as Anne Dudek wasted in such a thankless, pointless role. But couldn't the show at least make her the tiniest bit suspicious of Annie?

It takes very little for Danielle to buy her sibling's story about the Iranian and his supposed connection to the museum. I'm hoping someone realizes the asset this series has with Dudek and she gets clued in to Annie's occupation at some point. Let's see the two of them work together on a few cases, with Annie perhaps having to lie to the CIA about Danielle's occasional involvement.
