I really really enjoyed the season finale of Covert Affairs. In fact I’ve loved pretty much every episode this season which is saying something considering I’d almost given up hope at the end of Season One. Although some issues have been resolved (they’ve shoved Ben into the background and have finally gotten the case writing up to scratch), they still don’t seem to know what they’re doing with certain characters (Jai, Arthur, Danielle’s husband, Emmanuelle Vaugier’s character, Gregory Itzin’s character ……).
The opening ten minutes of the episode! I was literally holding my breath waiting for the other shoe to drop and wait for whatever was going to go wrong to happen. THEY PLAYED ONE OF MY FAVOURITE SONGS OVER THE SEQUENCE – ‘Gimme Shelter’ by The Rolling Stones <3 <3 <3. Full points!
I am so glad that Danielle finally knows that Annie works for the CIA. I think the way she reacted was perfectly justified and in-character. The heartbreaking moment was the last scene where they make up but Danielle says she still wants Annie to move out (something I can understand).
Annie/Auggie!!!! The one thing that they’ve done really well this season is progress the Auggie/Annie friendship. They are so adorable! I need an Auggie in my life.
