Piper Perabo Piper Perabo

Annie's back — and blonde! — and she's got a gun secret.

The last we saw Annie (Piper Perabo) on Covert Affairs, she had killed Henry in Hong Kong and was seemingly on her way back to Washington, D.C. It turns out, she took a little detour.

When Season 5 premieres Tuesday (10/9c, USA), Annie will finally make her way back to the DPD after four months away, but she won't be sharing many details, other than to declare that she's ready to get back to work. Fortunately for her, she immediately gets thrust into a case involving a familiar face and a couple of new ones, including Ryan McQuaid (Nic Bishop), a Navy SEAL-turned-private contractor billionaire who may or may not have a secret agenda, and Borz Altan (Michael A. Goorjian), a disillusioned former U.S. soldier.
