Right. So here we are. The Covert Affairs season 3 finale over and done with and…well…I for one am left with a bit of mixed feelings about the whole shebang!
First off, I really enjoyed this season. I thought the serialised arc(s) worked well for the show and served to keep it a bit more fresh than the standard procedural stuff (which in my opinion often gets a bit dull in the long run). I also thought it was clever to have more than one season-long arc; it kind of left you with the feeling that anything could happen and you were never exactly sure where or when the end would hit you.
We started out with Jai’s death and the mysterious symbol on his files and on the shoulder of the sexy Brit commonly known as Simon. Then Lena, the femme fatale, got added to the mix and before long everyone was looking suspicious as hell! Moving from that to Eyal and Mossad and the notion of family and friends, where Annie had to come to terms with her behaviour earlier in the season.
The whole season almost felt like 2-3 separate ones at some point there!
And season 4, which airs July 2013, promises a season-long arc focusing on one particular issue and, from the looks of last night’s episode, this one might be quite interesting.
But on with the show and all that…let’s explore the finale and some of the bad taste it left in my mouth shall we? Read the rest of this entry »
