Covert Affairs 309 Review - Unlucky in Lavender

How do you come back after a thrilling episode such as "Glass Spider?" Covert Affairs knew exactly what to do.  In "Suffragette City," the USA Network hit put the ball in Chris Gorham's court and simply let him do his thing. The results were fantastic.

We've seen Auggie get emotional before, but this might have been a whole new level. From the first moment he heard that his country thought that she was a traitor, he was as upset as we've ever seen. Auggie probably wouldn't have been more bothered if it were him in trouble with the department.

And that's why we love Auggie - and the Auggie and Annie relationship. He wanted to do anything he could to help her, and that included listening to and then breaking into Lena's polygraph session. When she claimed she thought Annie might have had something to do with Jai's death, it was the last straw for Auggie, but I still can't believe he jeopardized himself like that.

But that is how much he cares for his friend. He lost control a little bit, but thankfully he was still thinking rationally enough to figure out Lena was behind everything. If she didn't have to pile on the perfume, or if she didn't lay on the "I'm here to help" bit so thick, maybe Auggie wouldn't have picked up on it.
To read the rest of my review of this week's Covert Affairs, head over to TV Fanatic.
