The season finale of “Covert Affairs,” centers on CIA spy Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) concocting a plan to rescue comrade Eyal Lavine (Oded Fehr), who is being held hostage by terrorist-connected oil executive Khalid Ansari (Haaz Sleiman) in Amsterdam. This episode of “Covert Affairs” airs at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20 on USA.

Annie’s scheme is a pretty punishing one, but a surprise visit from a trusted ally brings a considerable advantage to her cause.

She also makes a clever choice in ultimately dealing with Khalid, and is offered a top-secret assignment that is apparently too good to refuse.

Perabo has been at the top of her game this season as her character has run through a gamut of emotions and been involved in plenty of action scenes.

Christopher Gorham continues to excel in his role as Annie’s blind CIA associate Auggie Anderson, consistently lending depth and authenticity to his character.

There’s something for everyone in this finale, so enjoy, “Covert Affairs” fans!
