Covert Affairs bosses on "bittersweet" finale and what's next for Annie and Auggie

A legendary CIA operative with sterling credentials whose approach is pretty much the opposite of the tough-love technique Joan (Kari Matchett) uses, Lena is now overseeing her own division within the Clandestine Service and will become an important figure in Annie's career. But there may be more to her than meets the eye.

Creskoff is best known as Lenore on Hung and has also appeared on Justified, Parenthood, Desperate Housewives and How I Met Your Mother.

Season 3 of Covert Affairs will premiere this summer on USA. Creskoff will make her debut in the first episode.
