Piper Perabo and Christopher Gorham Piper Perabo and Christopher Gorham

Things are heating up for Annie (Piper Perabo) and Auggie (Christopher Gorham) on Covert Affairs but not in a good way!

Tensions are on the rise after Henry (Gregory Itzin) hinted to Annie that Auggie's ex-wife, Helen, is still alive at the end of last week's episode. Now Auggie is beginning to question if he and Annie have what it takes to make it as a couple.

In this exclusive sneak peek from Tuesday's episode (9/8c, USA), Auggie asks Joan (Kari Matchett) why they were paired to work together. "Annie needed someone to ground her, and you needed someone to force you out of your comfort zone," Joan says. "You constantly push each other."

But does that mean that Auggie and Annie could "go the distance," as Auggie puts it? Find out how Joan responds in the video below:
