No longer the new kid on the block, Annie Walker’s (Piper Perabo) second year working for the CIA sends her all around the world including Paris, Buenos Aires, Belarus, Venice, Berlin, and back to the Farm to find a traitor burning the CIA’s best and brightest new recruits.
Only a pair of episodes, the season-opener and trip to Mexico City with Joan (Kari Matchett) include Ben Mercer (Eion Bailey) as the second season is built on Annie finding her own footing with the CIA and turning into one of their best field agents.
We also get the return of Mossad Agent Eyal Lavine (Oded Fehr) for a pair of episodes including his search for the man who killed his sister, Annie will have to break the news to a friend (Laara Sadiq) that her recently deceased husband was secretly working for the CIA for two decades, and Auggie (Christopher Gorham) gets his own episode as he goes after the man responsible for his blindness and the death of several members of his former unit.
There are a few bumps in the way as Annie gets used to Auggie’s (Christopher Gorham) temporary replacement (Jaimie Alexander) when he considers taking a promotion and Annie comes clean with her sister (Anne Dudek) about what she really does for a living. She will also search for for a traitor in NASA, and be asked by Joan to come between two sisters in order to keep the CIA’s Russian informants safe from harm.
The four-disc set includes deleted and alternate scenes for select episodes, a gag reel, the video used to introduce Piper Perabo at Sam Diego Comic-Con, and a behind-the-scenes featurette on the location shoots in Istanbul, Venice, Berlin and Stockholm. Fans of the show should definitely pick this set up. Covert Affairs continues to improve from a pretty good first season and will return for it’s third season on July 10th.
