'Covert Affairs' star Christopher Gorham: Auggie has realized he has feelings for Annie

Spoiler warning: Do not read if you have not watched last night’s episode of Covert Affairs.

Auggie certainly had more than a few touching words to say to Annie during last night’s Covert Affairs. The catch? She was unconscious for the whole thing!

But what can’t be denied is that this episode put a lot of things on the table and provided more than a few memorable moments between the lovable CIA pair. So when Christopher Gorham stopped by earlier this week to film an upcoming video edition of Spoiler Room, my colleague (and fellow Covert Affairs fan) Mandi Bierly and I grilled the star about the episode.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Let’s talk about the whole idea for this episode. We had bedside confessions, dream sequences, dream dance sequences, dream kisses — it was awesome.
GORHAM: The idea was that they wanted to push the Annie/Auggie relationship forward without having to push it forward. Based on everything that’s been happening and if you think about them as real people, [Annie] fell in love with another dude and for a second was going to run away with the guy. Then she’s shot, she wakes up in a coma, she wakes up in the hospital — you’re in no place to start considering dating one of your best friends. It’s just the furthest thing you’d ever want to think about. So, we have to deal with that reality. At the same time, the idea of that relationship is really popular among the audience so they wanted to find a way to give the audience something to hang their hat on, so they came up with this idea, which I thought was great.

'Covert Affairs' scoop: We haven't seen the last casualty, says Christopher Gorham

Spoiler alert! After last night’s explosive Covert Affairs season premiere in which we said goodbye to a character we’ve known since the show’s beginning (Sendhil Ramamurthy’s Jai) and Annie (Piper Perabo) and Auggie (Christopher Gorham) got reassigned, we asked Gorham a few of our burning questions:  READ FULL STORY

'Covert Affairs: Sights Unseen': Christopher Gorham talks Auggie web prequel, whether he'll be shirtless

While fans await tonight’s season 3 premiere of Covert Affairs (USA, 10 p.m. ET), which changes multiple characters’ futures, they can learn more about the past of one — Christopher Gorham’s Auggie — in the new interactive web series Covert Affairs: Sights Unseen. Gorham directed the five-part prequel set roughly one year after Auggie lost his sight in Iraq and one year before Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) joined the CIA. It follows Auggie as he adjusts to his new position as a CIA handler and gets sent by Joan (Kari Matchett) to Barcelona to supervise a rookie agent, Garrett Miller (Benjamin Nathan), who’s trying to turn a girlfriend of a Salafist Group member into an asset. “Things get more complicated than they should,” Gorham teases. “Garrett’s a young man who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He’s smart and talented like Annie is, but he doesn’t quite have the same people skills or instincts. So he’s a big challenge for Auggie at this point in his career.”

The challenge for fans: The five-week event (episodes premiere Tuesdays at noon ET) is choose-your-own-adventure. “The audience chooses how Auggie handles each situation. Does Auggie handle Garrett with kid gloves early in the story, or does he play hardball? As things get more complicated, does Auggie physically get involved or not? There are consequences to the decisions, especially later on in the series,” Gorham says. “If you make the wrong decision, the whole thing’s over.” Spoiler alert: Auggie will not be shirtless. “There’s a gym scene, and it was shirtless, but as the director, I actually put Auggie’s shirt back on because let’s be honest, nobody works out shirtless in the gym at work,” Gorham says, laughing. “But I was dying to put in an Easter egg choice at the gym scene where the user could choose ‘Shirt On’ or ‘Shirt Off.’ Then the joke was I was gonna have Jamie Barber, our director of photography, on a bike in the back and he was gonna be the one whose shirt was on or off. We just ran out of time. We had to shoot that boxing scene in literally six minutes, so my Easter egg joke had to go out the window.”

'Covert Affairs' star Christopher Gorham takes the EW Pop Culture Personality Test

As Covert Affairs fans gear up for Tuesday’s season finale (USA, 10 p.m. ET), there’s a lot to ponder: What will Piper Perabo’s Annie do after hearing from her sister Danielle (Anne Dudek) that her voice changes when she talks to Christopher Gorham’s Auggie?

'How I Met Your Mother,' 'Chuck,' 'Glee,' 'Gossip Girl': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Happy Thanksgiving, Roomies!

As I’ll likely be in a Turkey coma on Friday, here’s something to be thankful for a little early… Spoiler Room: Special Wednesday/Pre-Holiday/Yay For a Long Weekend Edition! Yup, just a few scoops to take you into your hopefully lovely holiday.

But before the 411 — and at the risk of sounding very sappy — I have to say that I’m very thankful for your readership and highly entertaining comments and questions this year. Here’s to another great one!

On that note, don’t slack! Send questions and ponderings to spoilerroom@ew.com or Tweet ‘em to me @EWSandraG. Be well!

‘HIMYM': ABOUT THE NEXT EPISODE…
The logline for next week’s How I Met Your Mother is incredibly teasey. Observe: When “Robin receives bad news, she decides to lie about it to the gang. Meanwhile, Marshall hangs Christmas decorations on the house in the ‘burbs with help from his neighbor.” But still unsatisfied, I hopped on the phone yesterday with HIMYM executive producer Carter Bays, who talked about the next episode. (To read part of our chat, click here.)

What I left out about the Dec. 5 episode, however, is something that truly sent chills of anticipation down my spine: While Bays said he believes it’s “one of the best episodes we’ve ever done,” he also expressed a little apprehension, saying he hopes viewers will see it the same way. “You know, honestly, I hope people stay on board after the next episode,” he tells me. “I think there’s some incredible acting in it, and it’s a really nicely told story that we’re very pleased with. But… this Barney and Robin stuff is a third rail for our show in a good way. It’s nice to get a little jolt every now and then, but it is so divisive among fans from what I’ve gathered. So hopefully people will enjoy the story for what it is. But yeah, we’re nervous about where the story goes. Excited, and very proud of it, but I hope people stay on board. I think they will.” READ FULL STORY

'Covert Affairs': Peter Gallagher says 'revealing' episode proves Arthur is 'a badass motherf–––er'

In tonight’s episode of Covert Affairs, Arthur Campbell at the center of the action unlike we’ve seen before.

In the revealing episode, Arthur (Peter Gallagher) revisits his past as a former covert operative, a post he held during the Cold War in Berlin, and finds himself crossing paths with a former flame who betrayed him. “It causes all sorts of interesting personal, domestic, and professional tension,” teases Gallagher. “The initial conflict is that I’m going back to see a woman I was close to, [but] the audience will know quickly whether or not they’re worried about Arthur [cheating on his wife].”  READ FULL STORY

'Fringe,' 'The Walking Dead,' 'Suburgatory,' 'Once Upon a Time': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Go Rangers!

Just kidding. Last night was actually the most baseball I’ve watched since the last time I watched a repeat of A League of Their Own on TBS, so don’t take that declaration too seriously. I don’t care who wins — either way, we don’t get Fringe tonight. Pfft.

That said, I have some scoop today that will hopefully satisfy your need for one more week — or make the delay even more painful. I can’t decide which is more truthful, but let’s try to see the sunny side of things.

In other news, enjoy spoils and teases from a ton of other shows below! If you don’t see a show you like, send me an e-mail with your request: spoilerroom@ew.com. (I read and appreciate them all!)

‘FRINGE': WHAT YOU WON’T SEE TONIGHT
As great as last night’s Game 6 was, it was hard to ignore the collective sigh among Fringe fans on news that Game 7 would result in a one-week delay of the new Fringe episode. And I’m right there with you — that sucks. Luckily, before I even knew the outcome of the game, I’d planned a healthy serving of dish for you. READ FULL STORY

Cable shows: Hottest program this summer was...

Who cared about broadcast shows like America’s Got Talent or So You Think You Can Dance? Cable programs had no trouble drumming up the eyeballs this summer, which is probably why viewership levels were up year-to-year among ad-supported basic nets like TNT, USA, History and MTV (4 percent) versus what the Big Four broadcasters were attracting (down 3 percent).

Did your favorite ad-supported cable show make the top 10 cut? (We’re talking just the nets with commercial, people. Not HBO or Showtime). Check out the charts below which take into account the top 10 new and returning shows on ad-supported cable among viewers through Aug. 21. (Note to tweeners: Kiddie nets were excluded). And one other thing: Who knew there was a show called Mounted in Alaska? READ FULL STORY

'Fringe,' 'Sons of Anarchy,' 'Castle,' 'Community': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Did you know the first 100 words of this column are the last 100 words I write every week? I say this for two reasons: 1) If you’ve ever noticed the coherency of this column increases as you work your way through it, you now know why. 2) You now also have an incentive to click to the second page of this column. (Yes! I’m paginated now! << I don’t know if that statement is the “Spoiler Room” speaking or yours truly. I’m going to say it’s the “room” since I, in fact, am not paginated.)

At any rate, take note of the little number “2” because it’s your path 2 more scoop. (See what I did there.) Hey, I warned you just one paragraph ago…

Remember to send scoop requests to spoilerroom@ew.com (note to the two smooshed “r”s) and follow me on Twitter for more things that don’t make a lot of sense and a few things that do (like TV scoop!). @EWSandraG READ FULL STORY
