Covert Affairs Episode 2-8 Review: Welcome to the Occupation

“Welcome to the Occupation” has a solid plot, both Joan and Ben tagging along with Annie. This makes for some more meaningful scenes, as we’re usually treated to Annie and a random person who never shows up again. The hostage situation was tense and far more enjoyable than the usual running around plot.

However, Covert Affairs remains inept at things beyond the A-plot, with two subplots that either shouldn’t have been there or should have been buffed. Annie’s doctor boyfriend better turn out to be an undercover agent or something, because his scenes were beyond terrible. So generic and bland. And Henry Wilcox is revealed to be Liza Hearn’s mole. Maybe Jai will have more to do now?

Score: 8.7/10
