Covert Affairs > Covert Affairs Review: Planes, Trains and Prison Breaks > Comments Page 2
I love Eyal. I also think Annie and Auggie have more of a bro/sister feel. I prefer her with Eyal but eh, I know that isn't going to happen. The episode was incredibly unrealistic but it was still a fun ep. Covert Affairs is as fake as you can get for CIA but it's great fun. I could watch an entire show devoted to Eyal.
Great show. Moved from Ireland to Boston and been out of touch with this show so I started where I left off. Watching the last 5 episodes back to back. I have always loved this show but it never felt quite real to me, all her situations seemed too easily entered and likewise left. But for the first time the last 4-5 episodes made this show more thrilling and realistic than its ever been. Maybe its because I watched them back to back, it felt like one big movie. It had everything you could ask for in a spy movie. But one thing bugged me. If the FSB are so good then why didnt they use annie's sister as bait???. Annie would have caved and maybe stretch this arc for another episode or two. Piper was outstanding and a long way away from her coyote ugly role and Christopher, what else can I say about the character that hasn't been said already. He is incredible. We all need a friend like him. How will Annie get back to normal life after all this??? Anyone feel that Joan will have major prob
I love the chemistry with Eyal & Annie. I actually sighed out loud when he pulled off the mask and she ran to hug him. Don't get me wrong I like Auggie, but I get more of a brother/sister vibe between him and Annie. Whereas the chemistry with Eyal is off the charts. I love every episode with Oded Fehr!! Hope there are many more to come!
It was WAY too easy. With much more realism, it would have been a great episode.
My favorite moment was when Eyal pulled off the gas mask & Annie ran & hugged him. I love the show & like Annie although sometimes I don't like the foolish things she does (her go bag). She's supposedly kind of a super spy yet she does some things I find unbelievable. I like Auggie as a friend for Annie not romantic interest. What's going on with Joan and the pills? Did I miss something. I don't care for Arthur's character. I also still am sad that they killed Jay, I liked him.
WOW!!! I thought it was a great show. Eyal knew how to get into the prison also he new about who was questioning Annie and said I thought it would be someone else and their escape was great. And it got a little hairy for a while but it all work out and were on the boat and on the way home. She has really grown in this show. And next week should be interesting we will see. Again great writers actors setup people and they work very hard for us to Have a great show. If you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all.
Great show last night. Think series is finally getting it together. Glad they decided not to show Annie being tortured. Think most people can figure that out. I didn't need to see Annie bleeding on the floor. As for Auggie, I gave upon him when he got together with Porter. Annie's consolation prize was his car. That was so lame. Don't know how deeply in love Annie was with Simon and I don't expect Annie to fall into Auggie's arms any time soon.
I agree that Annie's giving her passport to Simon's sister (as a spy) was a dumb move, then again she was following Simon in Cuba wearing a red skirt.
Now to the reason I watched: Oded Fehr. Need I say more. Hope they keep him around for as many episode's he can make. It is my understanding from a spoiler that he is in 5 of the 6 episode's in this second half of the season.
Sure, it all may have been a little too easy (even though they kept getting caught and/or plan foiled no thanks to Annie) but it is a TV show and how long can they drag out Annie bouncing off the walls in a tiny cell? Loved how Joan showed true feelings for Annie and got through to Arthur how much Annie means to her. Everything Auggie does is awesome.
Last nights epi had many awesome scenes thanks to Eyal and some rather annoying Annie crap. Anyway, Oded Fehr as Eyal is definitely a huge asset to Covert Affairs. I love how Eyal sweeps in and exudes charm. I cheered with joy when he took off his gas mask. He is my personal hero.
I agree that Oded Fehr is a marvelous guest star and a wonderful actor, and he was great in this episode, which was almost too dark and depressing for me. I realize that it is almost inevitable that a spy will get caught at some point and interrogated by the enemy, certainly, I just felt that the FSB interrogator would have used more force, in terms of torture, than sleep deprivation and a dirty cell and yelling at Annie. Yet I was glad that they didn't show more scenes of torture, because I loathe that sort of thing. Still, it didn't seem "normal" for the main guy to not hit her very much or cut her or waterboard her or any of that. It also seemed a bit too nice for Annie to provide him with a way to leave the country and start a new life. I understand it was in exchange for their freedom but she seemed to be way too forgiving of that guy. Still, I hope they do something with Annie and Auggies relationship in the next ep. I think there is real chemistry there.
Piper Perabo is to be commended for her acting on this series, particularly on this opening episode for series 3. Let's face it, the whole premise would turn to cheese without a realistic portrayal of this pivotal character. Plus, it's just so much fun to see Annie kick everyone's ass whenever possible, but this time she was "in it" up to her eyeballs. I thought the most heartfelt moment was when she realized her sister would be the victim of of her situation. I believe she could hold out against all odds except when it comes to her family...and can you imagine if it were her nieces on the chopping block? At this point I prayed for an intervention and like magic, Eyal appeared to save the day. Call it theatrical license or whatever, it's sometimes necessary to dismiss the obvious and just let it all happen. In the end, this episode was worth the ride and filled with every emotion. I call that first-rate entertainment!
So what exactly are Annie's feelings toward Auggie? Obviously, they are close friends, but I think just as clearly, Auggie is ready for them to be much more than that. What is still confusing is how Annie feels about him. She was in love with Simon and Auggie accepted that. Now with Simon's death and Auggie no longer engaged, what's next for these two? Or is Annie about to take up with Eyal? I think that they can have Auggie and Annie be on the brink of a romantic relationship but then both end up with someone else just so many times before it starts to get annoying.
Although it was neat to have Auggie once again go out on a limb, I thought Annie's prison break was a little too convenient and took a step back from the previous 3 or 4 episodes. Scenes at the train station were great....
What kind of pills was Joan taking and why?
Looks like next week Annie is going to be forced to turn against Eyal.
I was thrill to see Oded Fehr back, he is such a great actor. Annie and Eyal has amazing chemistry and I would luv to see more of this. I don't want Annie using Eyal like she did to Simon in the next episode, Eyal save Annie and she could return the favor too.
Annie's has taken her acting chops to the next level since the start of this series. She is so believable and I an really beginning to relate to her character. I just love the chemistry between Eyal and Annie, and the writers see it and are writing to it. Love it. Covert Affairs was originally way down in my Queue...now top five.......for sure.
I have this feeling that Eyal will be apart of the plan next week. Like a sort of test on Annie. But then again I could be wrong. They've had such a strong relationship so far. I think it's time to test that. What Annie did to Simon, should not be done to Eyal.
Agreed dp & hazel, Oded Fehr is fantastic, a real touch of class with a dash of charm and humanity every appearance! Eyal and Annie have an understanding and respect for each other that is completely believable and symbiotic, I hope the writers continue to keep Eyal in play as he is one of my main reasons for watching Covert Affairs...they have great chemistry however it's refreshing the writers haven't made them an item so far. I'm all for Auggie and was a big fan of Simon's too however I wouldn't be adverse to Eyal and Annie in the future, either way, Oded Fehr is an asset to the show and should continue to be until the end :)
Perfect story. I cheered when Eyal appeared, much as I cheered when Simon dispatched Hector. Sure hope Annie helps Eyal next week.
Oded Fehr killed it tonight! He is probably my all time fav. guest star on this series. He elevates every episode he is in. SO impressed by him!
