COVERT AFFAIRS “Horse to Water” Review

COVERT AFFAIRS  "Horse to Water" Season 2 Episode 14 -  If there was an award for most boring Covert Affairs  episode, this one would win hands down. The plot is pretty much this: a Russian asset dies after a traitorous ex-CIA analyst arranged it from his prison cell. The only person who could have passed on the order is his daughter , but it was actually a second daughter using information the first unwittingly took away from her  visits to her father in the form of chess moves. And that’s it. Of course, this was supposed to be another episode wherein Annie realises something about the relationship she has with her sister , but what she realises is left uncertain. Is it that she wants to reconnect with their estranged father? Or that she’s lucky to have a sister she can trust? Usually the real wrap up moment for these revelations is in the final scene, but instead that was a random scene where Annie asks and receives permission for shooting and bodyguard training, although she’s been in much more dangerous situations than the one in this episode, and the request scene felt like it was hastily tacked on (maybe to pave the way for Annie using a gun in a future episode).

Covert Affairs Review: Annie Got A Gun!

I am not a believer in fate, but there's something awfully disconcerting about the fact that the week the episode ends with Annie finally getting her hands on a CIA sanctioned firearm is when I'm called upon to fill in for your regular weekly critic, Dan Forcella. In fact, I'm a little giddy about it. Not giddy enough, however, to overlook a few things I just didn't enjoy about " Horse to Water ." As far as plots go, this wasn't one of the sexier outings they've had this season. I much prefer the international missions when Annie gets sent abroad, but I suppose we can't have the European romanticism every week. Be that as it may, I was fairly well taken by this story of an imprisoned former CIA analyst (the under-used Bruce Davison) pulling strings on the outside via one of his daughters - until they made it about Annie's relationship with her own sister.
