The promo for the Nov. 14 episode of USA’s Covert Affairs offers a quick tease of what looks to be a fairly awesome gun fight and chase scene in Hong Kong as Annie (Piper Perabo), Auggie (Christopher Gorham) and Calder (Hill Harper) face off with Henry’s men. The action will move fast, but you can pause to appreciate the details in this exclusive photo: Auggie holding Annie, Calder’s reflection in the mirror. READ FULL STORY

Annie (Piper Perabo) returns to Colombia on tonight’s Covert Affairs (USA, 9 p.m. ET) after receiving intel linking Arthur’s son Teo (Manolo Cardona) to a bomb plot. While Annie tries to determine Teo’s true allegiances, the local “sheriff,” CIA station chief Calder Michaels (Hill Harper), is prepared to torture Teo until he reveals his target. “Our Zero Dark Thirty moment” — how Harper describes the exclusive clip below — is a perfect example of how this character differs from the earnest role he played on CSI: NY for nine seasons. “He does not mind being very nasty and throwing his weight around, his ego around, his swag around, if need be to get the job done,” Harper says. “Annie and Calder see the world differently. Even though they both have the exact same goals — protect our country, serve our government — they have two completely different views about what’s the most effective way to do that. He believes that there are bad people in the world that can’t be changed, and sometimes you have take drastic measures and/or even eliminate people to make the world safer; she believes that people can be turned and changed, and sometimes it takes a wink and a smile and sometimes it takes giving someone information they didn’t know. The dichotomy of those two ways of looking at the world make for very interesting storytelling.”
As for the tense scene below, Annie has to watch as Calder beats Teo. “I want everything to look realistic. At first, we were gonna put a pad on [Cardona's torso], but we couldn’t hide a pad because his arms were up above his head, so his shirt pulled up,” Harper says. “I mean, I’d really hit him, and after every take, I’d be like, ‘Are you okay? Are you okay?’ And he’d be like, ‘I’m fine, come on, let’s do this.’ Everybody was onboard with doing it in a big, realistic way. I think he had some bruises and some welt marks, but, you know, those went away.” READ FULL STORY
