"Covert Affairs" Elevate Me Later (TV Episode ) - Plot Summary - IMDb
At the very beginning of the season, when we were sort of breaking the arcs, we said, at a certain point, we want this to happen. It's a momentous moment in both of their lives and their relationship. It sort of felt finale-worthy. We felt our own pressure to do it [not just from the fans]. As Matt said, you can only sustain a lie like that for so long before you start losing sympathy for the person that's being lied to.
You just can't believe that they could be so blind. It was a matter of figuring out how to do it. I like that Annie just flat-out told her when she walked into the house. Was it important for you that Annie read in Danielle instead of Danielle finding out herself somehow? Yeah, I think that was really important and I think that allowed for more dramatic tension. First of all, we loved how Annie and Piper played it.
It was really nuanced and they spent a lot of effort in perfecting their performance. As far as crafting the scene, we thought about how one reacts when they're told something totally seismic or incredibly traumatic, or life-changing news comes down.
The normal person's reaction is shock and disbelief and only later do you process it and start to ask questions. We knew we wanted to do this polonium episode and we felt it really lent itself to the reading-in story. You could create that moment where Annie wants to read her sister in and doesn't, but because of this health scare, has to start to read her in under very different circumstances.
By that point, there was no recourse. And the allegory is there. At least in Danielle's mind, Annie's sort of radioactive for the family and so she kicks her out. That's sort of the meaning behind the meaning and that was the other thing that was important for us.
She needs to stick to her guns. Danielle claims she's not feeling safe with Annie there and we needed to honor that sentiment. She really will be kicked out. That's not a TV thing where you come back and she's back in the house.
I think she will regret [kicking Annie out] to some degree. She has a very close relationship with her sister and that's going to not be there. Annie's absence will affect her and Annie's gotta re-earn her trust. How much of Danielle will we see going forward? The presumption may be that her presence would be diminished or obsolete now that Annie's out of the house.
We still intend for there to be a really vigorous and vital role for her. It's just going to be different. We love Annie Dudek; we love the character of Danielle. It's not all about Annie pretending to bob and weave and pretending she's doing something else. Just because you've been read in to what your sister does, you can't know anything beyond that. So in some ways, it could become more difficult once you read your family in.
We felt that gave us more grist, in the same way you see at the end of the episode, Danielle now knows the bruise on Annie's face is not a stapler accident. And she can't find any solace in that sort of naivete. We're going to have an Annie-Danielle story line [that] will be more emblematic of the challenges they have going forward now that she has read her in, not because of.
We're really excited about the stories we can do now. Does Danielle have or have you considered her having a secret she's kept from Annie? I think that's the interesting thing — it could be a two-way street. I think everyone has secrets, not just people in the CIA. Is he actually going to Phoenix and who is he calling? We can't say who he's calling, but it's someone he's familiar with and somebody with whom he's trying to change his paradigm by calling.
Will he be in Phoenix?
Let's put it this way: His role is changing in a very interesting way. Where do his loyalties lie now? His dad's blackmailing him and he's forced to relocate with no room for advancement Jai — he's been loyal to Arthur Peter Gallagherto his dad, to Annie — now recognizes that he can only rely on himself, so he's most loyal to himself.
But he has goods on Henry as well. They're sort of locked in a stalemate and things are going to get more complex with them. We're sort of seeing the repercussions of the leak rather than the ongoing nature of it too, so we may see Liza Hearn Emmanuelle Vaugier as needed. Is he going to turn on the DPD? Sendhil said he's never pictured Jai as a bad guy.
That remains to be seen. What we love about Sendhil as an actor and what we love about the character is that you want to see him challenged and tempted by these forces. He's taking matters into his own hands. He wants to be everything his dad was and more. He's not going to be satisfied until people see his dad in the context of just his dad.
I'm not sure Jai is satisfied without some sort of world domination. He's definitely going to be much more of a force to contend with. Every marathon begins with a step and that phone call was a step. What kind of impact will she have on him and Annie? I think they just want each other to be happy. Annie and Auggie have a very strong relationship and a very strong friendship. They will continue to orbit one another, even though other romantic things will go on. They're stronger than the romances they have independently.
Synopsis Eric Barber sees something on his screen that prompts him to call Auggie, whom he interrupts in bed with Hailey. She offers to drive Auggie to work. From the office, he calls Annie to come in, saying they have a lead on the bank that paid the Postman. In the morning, Joan talks to a lawyer, Lara Andrews, from the office of the General Counsel, who offers to help Joan prep for the inquiry into the events in Chicago.
When Calder breezes in, Joan interrupts to introduce him. He's eager to get away from Joan, but she follows him to the elevator. She suggests he ask Lara out, saying she's a good ally and now is a time when they need them. Barber says the bank's security could take months to hack, except that Auggie's hacker ex Natasha Petrovna wrote the code the bank uses.
She's been on the run for four years, but Auggie is confident he can get her to help. When Joan wants to know why, he tells her about the last time he saw her, when she told him she loved him. Joan agrees to put Auggie in the field, with Annie as his handler. They have a few nice moments of catching up but she turns cool when he tells her why he's there. She doesn't like the idea of helping the CIA and points out that even if she wrote them a way in, the hack has to be done on site.
She leaves, telling him not to contact her again. Auggie checks in with Annie, who urges him to use his "emotional capital" with her. He put a GPS tracker on Natasha's sleeve. Annie goes to the bank to scout it, talking through the intercom to say she has an appointment. When they don't find her fake French name on their schedule she walks away.
She sits in her car across the street and takes pictures of the cars coming and going, including Ivan Kravec.
Joan comes home to find Arthur packing, but he can't tell her where he's going. When she deduces that Caitlin is going with him, he assures her she has nothing to worry about. Auggie drops in on Natasha's hotel room, confessing he bugged her. He tells her he doesn't want her to leave Paris mad at him. He tells her he misses her. He lets her kiss him and soon they're peeling off each other's clothes. In the morning, he ignores a call as his phone announces it's Hailey.
He says it's a work thing. Natasha agrees to the hack, in exchange for the FBI dropping the charges against her. And she wants his complete honesty. Auggie goes to meet Annie. He tells her he didn't plan to spend the night, but she assures him he did what was necessary for the mission. Annie briefs him on her surveillance. She says there's no way in, but Ivan carries a laptop with a fingerprint recognition pad. Cut to Annie shooting with a hunting rifle at a place Ivan frequents.
He sees her sharpshooting and engages her. He's taken with her and invites her to see his gun collection. Caitlin and Arthur leave their meeting in Iraq. They consult briefly and decide to take the job at the big price. Arthur enjoys the fast decision making. In their armored transport back, Caitlin is dazzled by him and asks his secret. He tells her he doesn't let things get complicated. Suddenly, their convoy hits an IED.
As insurgents fire on them from above, Arthur rushes to the hit vehicle and pulls out the passengers. He and Caitlin and the team grab semi-automatic weapons from the SUVs and defend themselves, successfully getting into their SUVs and driving off.
In Ivan's gun room, she recognizes his collection and continues to impress him. When he holds a gun to her chest, she doesn't blink, and suggests a better technique.
