The Pros and Cons of an Annie/Auggie Romance on Season 3 of Covert Affairs

Covert Afairs - Auggie and Annie

If you’ve watched any of the promos that USA is running for the third season of Covert Affairs, plus of course this week’s episode where Annie and Auggie play a married couple for a case, then chances are you’ve caught wind of the fact that there are some strong hints of an Annie and Auggie romance happening this season. As usually happens with me, the idea of these two main characters hooking up is leaving me with some mixed feelings. The way I see it, Auggie and Annie getting together romantically can either be a fantastic thing to happen on the show or…not so much.

The Cons

Covert Affairs - Auggie and Annie

Since I’m leaning a bit more towards the idea that this will be a good thing for the show, let’s get the cons out of the way first.

The dreaded “Moonlighting” curse

I’ve brought this one up before while talking about other shows and I hate to beat a dead horse but I can’t help it. I may have been really young but I was an avid fan of the show ‘Moonlighting’ back in the day and I still remember what happened when the two main characters stopped flirting and finally jumped into bed together. In a word, it sucked. What if Annie and Auggie get together and we lose the spark?

No more Ben?

I’m trying really hard not to let my enormous crush for Eion Bailey influence me here, but since that’s probably an impossible task I’m just going to say what I need to say. Ben is an enthralling character and I thought he and Annie were great together. Did they have their ups and downs? Sure. But I also think that he was (and maybe could be again) the love of Annie’s life. If she gets together with Auggie, chances are we won’t see him again and that makes me a little sad.

The Pros

Covert Affairs - Season 3

Alright, so let’s move on to the positive side of this post and get down to why Auggie and Annie engaging in some horizontal mambo could make a great show even better.

They’ll make a great couple

Why will they make a great couple? Because they’re both hot. (What? It needed to be said). Yes, Auggie and Annie are both very fine looking specimens, but I’ll stop being shallow now and say that they are also intelligent, funny, strong, amazing characters on their own. Putting two people together like that is bound to create not only sparks, but a raging forest fire.

More screen time for Auggie

Since day one of this show, Auggie has been my favorite character so a romance with Annie (who is of course the main character of the series) is bound to mean that he’s going to get more interesting story lines. Personally I love it when we get to see Auggie in the field but I also understand that it’s not always realistic with his character’s disability. But with Annie around, I bet we’ll get to see him out in the field a lot more often, which is a very good thing in my opinion.


Okay so those are my pros and cons for an Auggie and Annie romance this season on Covert Affairs. What about you guys? Do you think those two getting together will be good for the show? Sound off in the comments below and let me know what you think. I love hearing from you guys!
