The parents do not approve…
First of all, congratulations to Covert Affairs for being picked up for a Season 4! It didn’t really come as a big surprise but I’m happy that it has been confirmed nonetheless. Here’s to another explosive and spy-filled summer in 2013!
Actually, the pick-up makes me even more curious to see where exactly this season will end up taking Annie. Judging from last night (and even before that), Annie might be in a bit of a pickle. Her progression from someone who’s all about family to someone who’s all about “da attitude” is definitely something that’s going to end up having severe consequences on her relationship with those closest to her.
Continuing that line of thinking, I believe it’s safe to say that last night’s Covert Affairs was all about family and complicated relationships! And Annie being a brat! And Arthur reclaiming his status as alpha male. And Parker is back.
Yes indeed, the relationships of our little CIA family can be mighty dysfunctional at times.
Oh, and congratulations Chris Gorham on his directoral debut! Well done!
As always, the mission wasn’t really the focal point of the episode but rather the similarities between that and the realities of our favourite spies. So, let’s not care too much about Khalid, whose daddy is the golf buddy of some hot shot within the State Department, or the counter-terrorist measures.
After all the most important thing to take from this episode is that no one seems to be able to keep their personal life separated from their professional one. If you want to know all about the mess Annie, Auggie, Joan, and Arthur are currently in, just keep on reading! Read the rest of this entry »
