Covert Affairs > Covert Affairs Review: What's Old Is New > Comments Page 2
I love Oded Fehr..Eyal & Annie are terrific together!!
I think we are supposed to wonder what drug Joan is taking - definitely looked like a prescription bottle last week, so could be anything. Probably an old problem she has fallen back into with the stress of job, less than blissful marriage, and worry about Annie. I guess we will get more back story on Joan, as she said that Annie was repeating her old patterns, and we know she and Lena had very bad blood. We are also supposed to wonder about the relationship with Seth and how much Arthur might know. At least we now know what Seth was talking about several episodes when he asked Joan if she would be at a meeting later. Okay, folks, I'm done until next week. Enjoy!
Perhaps having Eyal evaluate Annie when she was in Israel was a Mossad idea and not CIA. I like Eyal, too, so I am hoping he will remain a "good guy." Tovah's character is manipulating him the way Lena handled Annie.
Yes, too soon for Annie to have another love affair. Glad to hear her admit that she loved Simon.
Thanks, drh! Unfortunately, I live too far away from NYC to make it to Broadway, but good to know. Don't watch the criminal investigative shows, either, so I didn't know Tovah was on Law & Order.
Tova Feldshue is still on Broadway and was famously on the L&O Mother Ship as a fairly regular defense attorney ... She was on L&O pretty much once or twice a season all through 1990's and 2000's... According to IMDB, she also appeared in the very last L&O Criminal Intent but as an unnamed attorney but my guess the same as on the Mother Ship which by then
I would love to make Eyal a regular, as he is a refreshing addition to the time. Annie is a mess, she has not taken the time to heal from Simon, being in prison, and being shot. She can not even go home, and Eyal works 2-fold: she was shocked by the way he treated the asset, and it is best to not forget that he is Mossad. He is in love with Annie, and I think he also is lonely and he loves this feeling of camraderie with people and rescuing Annie brought them together. He said Mossad has cost him a great deal. I do not want to see the reverse her relationship w/Simon, that would be lame.
When Joan said to Annie that she needs to remember that her friends are in the CIA. I am also surprised she did not mention Auggie; he has been her guardian angel,so many times. The only person who can put her back together is Auggie, but I think she will figure that out on her own. She is also extremely vulnerable, and it probably would have been better to have left her on that farm, even thou
I realized something when I was watching the episode last night why didn’t Annie called Auggie so she could have stayed with him last at his place knowing what she has been through Simon killed at her home, she almost died and killing Lena. I would have called my best friend right away and tell him If I could stay with you for the time being. Till she ready to deal with her traumatic ordeal she been through with Lena and Simon.
It's getting rather tiresome that Annie has a relationship with every operative with whom she works. I know she told the guy at the horse farm that the CIA wanted her to blur the lines between her personal and professional life, but she is supposed to be able to tell the difference. Lately every operation seems to have Annie making calf eyes with her spy counterpart, and the result is rather demeaning to Annie the professional. She's become the female James Bond, with a love interest in every case. Maybe the writers think that is the way to keep female viewers interested, but this female viewer would just like some good espionage and suspense with a hint of Augie in the background.
I don't know if people are just stupid or tired, but there is more than 1 pill in the world; asking what she's addicted to is a legitimate question. I'd like to think it's painkillers but it's probably a stimulant. I'm not worried about anything becoming repetitive, I just hope that Eyal is in as many episodes as possible; they could probably find a way to make him a main character if they wanted to.
I also wanted to make a comment about Joan which I was so shocked she was going to meetings for people who is addicted to Pills. Arthur was in the dark about it. I'm curious what Arthur will say about it and that guy Seth is he an old love interest of Joan. OH boy! I'm really curious how he, Joan and Arthur will play out in that sceneraio. I loved that I got to see Arthur's paternal side. I'm glad he told Annie that Joan was really distraught about what happened to her. I love the scene between Eyal and Auggie that was funny and cute. My favorite scene of that night. I was heartbroken about Auggie he was so happy to see his best friend back and Alive giving her a bear hug and been waiting to tell her how he feels about her. I was happy they had a few moments not many. I hope Auggie tells Annie how he feels about her soon! It is obvious now he loves Annie very much and he wants to let her know how he feels about her.
Last night episode was great lot of twist and turns when it comes to Mossad and their agenda what plans they have for the CIA especially Annie Walker. Eyal is a good guy and I know he loves Annie and he will do anything in his power to protect to defy his boss which I don't like her at all. She is definitely trouble. She will make things more complicated for Eyal when it comes to his career and especially the Woman he loves Annie. I hope Annie realizes and finds out what Mossad's intentions are and how Eyal plays roll in them. Will definitely causes problems between Eyal and Annie. I love Oded Fehr. He is great as Eyal Lavin and the love the chemistry between him and Annie. We have to wait and see what happens.
So basic its the simon storyline ALL over again
Annie is too smart for this. She will figure out what Eyal is up to. Sure, it seems he's less than happy with it. So he'll mess up and Annie will find out what's really going on.
Love Eyal - cant help but smile when he turns up!!! I think he is back for another 2 episodes....
What do you mean what is Joan addicted to? Don't you watch each episode? She's addicted to pills.
I love Eyal. I don't think Annie will screw him over. It wasn't mentioned in this recap but she DID hand him over the information she found and then lied about it to Joan. So I think it's going both ways here. It's hard to say if their realtionship will stay professional or not. We know they are attracted to each other....but I doubt Annie will jump right into another romantic thing.
I'm still a bit annoyed by Annie's 'I can do and know everything' attitude.
Good to know that Tova Feldshue still has her acting chops - I haven't seen her since the 70s. My take on the new story line is that Mossad wants to turn Annie for its use and Eyal is less than happy about his new assignment.
Yes, nice to see some back story on Joan and Seth and to see Arthur be the gentle one with Annie for a change.
