Covert Affairs Bosses Preview Annie and Auggie's Latest Struggle, Power Shake-Ups and More

Oct 16 2013, 8:00am CDT | by TV Line

Covert Affairs‘ spy heroine Annie adopts a new look — and a whole new set of problems following her “death” — in this Thursday’s mid-season premiere (USA Network, 10/9c).

Below, executive producers Chris Ord and Matt Corman discuss how ex-lovebirds Annie and Auggie are dealing with their new situation, and address one big question: Can she — or does she even want to — come home?

The EPs also talk about the changing power hierarchy at the CIA and the far-off destination they finally got to visit

TVLINE | With Annie on the run, are you shooting more on location than ever before?
CHRIS ORD | We are, yes. We shot in Europe this summer, and the last two episodes are going to go shoot in Hong Kong in mid-October. It’s been a dream destination for us. We’ve always wanted to shoot in Asia, but it’s so far. It’s very difficult to pull off during the season, but we found a way to do this right at the end of the season so there won’t be any travel issues./>

TVLINE | Will Auggie go after Annie right away?
ORD | No. [Laughs] He’s a soldier. He honors the mission./>

TVLINE | What is his job status in the new episodes?
MATT CORMAN | Auggie and Joan are taking their lumps at the CIA. They’re still going to remain in the building. They’re going to do what they can from these new positions within the building to achieve this goal./>

TVLINE | So basically, they’ve been demoted?
ORD | Yeah. Different, new positions and they’ve been demoted, that’s right./>

TVLINE | The Auggie-Annie situation kind of parallels what happened with Auggie and his wife, except that Auggie’s more aware of what’s going on this time.
ORD | Right. But you could say that’s either good or bad. If he had never found out Helen was alive… He was able to deal with that loss and move forward. Whereas now, he does know that Annie’s alive, he does know that she’s out there, but that makes it harder in some ways./>

TVLINE | Auggie said if Annie fakes her death, she might never be able to come back from it. Is she concerned about that? Is she trying to get back?
CORMAN | That’s the essential struggle of these back six episodes: Can you come back to who you were? Do you even want to? And if you did, would you be the same person? Because this type of experience where you’re so on your own and alone, it changes a spy forever./>

TVLINE | After what he did for Annie, where does Calder stand?
ORD | Well, he’s got skin in the game. If the CIA finds out that he did this, they’re not going to be thrilled, and so he has co-opted into our team. Now, that doesn’t make this all an easy alliance, but in the same respect, we’ve enjoyed that journey with Calder where you’ve seen him come from being the sheriff to this person that our characters are concerned about. But then we realize that he was just searching for the truth. Now, he knows that Henry is up to no good, and he’s going to try and help our characters achieve the same goal in the back six./>

TVLINE | Now that Joan’s been relieved of her duties, is there once again a power struggle at the top?
CORMAN | There’s continual power struggles. Throughout this back six and going forward, the shifting sands of power are very much in play./>

TVLINE | Has Henry claimed that top position in a way?
CORMAN | Yeah. It’s interesting. He’s not technically in the CIA, but as an adviser of sorts, he’s going to be getting his tendrils in even more fully in these back six episodes./>

TVLINE | How are Arthur and Joan going to be dealing with everything that’s going on between them and also individually?
CORMAN | They’re moving toward reconciliation just born out of shared tragedy. It doesn’t mean it’s easy. He’s still got a lot on his plate, a lot of legal issues. But because of the grief that they’re sharing, because of the fact that they’re having a baby together as well, they’re both making attempts be together rather than apart./>

TVLINE | With the back half of the season, are you guys planning to wrap up the Henry storyline and start a new thread?
CORMAN | Yeah. Henry’s a great character, and he’s a great villain, but he certainly has been in many ways the goal of this season. He won’t be as much of a focal point as he was this season, but he’s a great character and someone that we love to write. So we don’t know exactly yet what’s going to happen to Henry./>
