Confession time: At some point I might have considered giving up on Covert Affairs, but before I could make my final decision, the show pulled me back in. And I’m so glad it did because I would have missed out on the best season the show has given us yet.
Yes, I’m talking about this current third season of Covert Affairs. It really feels like we have moved to a new level of storytelling for Annie and co. And to top it all off, the show gave us the best new character this season, Simon Fischer (played brilliantly by Richard Coyle). To me, he is Annie’s best love interest (yes, above Ben and Auggie, you heard me) and most intriguing character.
With that in mind, it’s been quite ride this season, leading up to the best episode of the season. Yes, you heard (well technically read) that right, tonight’s episode “Glass Spider” is the best episode this season. Granted I haven’t yet seen the Summer finale episode (although I did see next week’s episode), or the second half of the season for that matter, but I’ll just go on a limb and say that if it’s not the best it’s at least one of the best.
I’m sure you are now asking yourself, why is it the best?
Well, I can’t really answer that without giving too much away but I’ll just go ahead and give you a few hints of what you can expect:
- A reunion
- Simon Fischer
- A shattered mic
- A betrayal
- A shocking ending (seriously, watch right until the last second, do not miss anything)
But I’ve already said too much.
Don’t forget to tune in tonight and watch a new episode of Covert Affairs at 10pm on USA. And make sure to come back and let me know what you thought or tweet me on Twitter @sosandrine.
