Our little summer obsession is back in the fall.
"Covert Affairs" returned on Tuesday with an incredible chase in Venice - where Annie lost an important package - before jumping right into a new mission.
This one, involving a chef she's been flirtatious with who also has ties to a Basque separatist group, was one of the more interesting missions so far this season.
And thanks to the tense scene between Annie and the chef's brother in his apartment, her discovery of a bomb in his restaurant, and the car chase culminating in a fire hydrant-drenched fight, this episode was certainly not hurting for action.
Change was in the air as well, since Danielle made Annie move out to a new apartment, but most interesting of all were the changes for Jai. It was a very effective fake-out to see him supposedly clean out his desk for Phoenix only to get a promotion instead, reporting to the DNI. No doubt, this development will have repercussions in the weeks to come.
The only downside to the episode was the relative lack of screentime for Auggie, but I have a feeling that he'll get another chance to shine soon.
