Too bad about the professor. I thought he knew about Annie in the CIA because they would have interviewed him as part of her vetting process. Interesting plot twist, this. Does this mean (possibly 2 great stories in a row including 'Welcome...') the writers are awake now?

Episode was terrific. Ben was back, but don't get your hopes up, Ben haters; he's not gone. Annie hasn't kicked him to the curb, but parked him for a while. The doc is boring, and she'll realize that, plus he's with Drs. Without Borders so guess what? He'll disappear, just like Mercer. Lawson's supposed to be in only one more episode, so maybe the doc will at least get to say goodbye, but I wouldn't count on any long term affair with this one. Plus, CA has more love interests for Annie in the pipeline.
Annie definitely has to decide if Mercer is worth the trouble, so she was smart not to go with him. If the rest of her prospective lovers are as boring as this big lug of a Dr., the daring, impetuous and hot Mercer will win out in the end. We'll have to see if he'll man up and fight for her.
It was great to see Henry and Jai, conspiring or not conspiring together, and great to see the Campbells as the happy couple.
Always fun stuff when Mercer is around. Too bad he's not around more.

To kcg,
I agree completely; see some of the 'Where's Ben?' posts on the CA message board to see how a lot of us feel about the writers ignoring him so far this season. He's probably aware that Annie knows the CIA took him out of Walter Reed, but he's sensitive to the fact that he hasn't gotten in touch with her. (Again, writers, why not?) He may have said something to piss her off; we'll learn more tomorrow. During the filming of this episode, Bailey commented that Mercer is a 'one woman man', so I doubt that his comment involved marriage.

Sorry everyone about the repetitive posts! Each time I submitted a comment, it never showed up, even after leaving and returning to this site; I kept trying. I didn't remember it taking so long for the comments to appear. My Bad! Sorry!

He hasn't said anything; he's referring to the fact that 'this' is the first time she's seen or heard from him since he disappeared from Walter Reed without saying goodbye. The last time he saw her after leaving without saying goodbye (in season 1) she was hurt and angry; he expected her reaction to be the same. But this time she is cool and calm. I think she says "Then raise your expectations." He's unaware that she has another man in her life - the ER Dr. - (he's also in the episode) obviously giving her the confidence to put Mercer down.

Don't think he said anything; he's referring to this is the first time she's seen or heard from him since Walter Reed. In season 1, when she saw him the first time after he left her without saying good bye, she was hurt and angry and he probably expected the same reaction; but this time she's calm and cool. I think she says "then raise your expectations." He's unaware that she has another man in her life, the Dr., who is also in this episode.

The last time he saw her (in season 1) after leaving without saying goodbye, she was angry and upset; he probably expected the same reaction from her this time. But this time she's cool and calm. And what she asks him is "what were your expectations?" He's probably unaware that she has another man in her life - the Dr., who is also in this episode.

Covert Affairs Review: Space Jam

I liked this episode, better than some of the others. You're correct about the phone call, CA writers tend to forget stuff they've previously written. Where's Mercer?
