Covert Affairs "Quicksand" Episode Review

*Review contains spoilers, so read at your own risk!*

Auggie goes to Iraq, Joan takes a leave of absence (don't really know why, though, thought that was odd) and Annie works with Eyal again.

Finally, some Auggie and Annie time! Been waiting for that scene to finally take place forever! They've sure been talking about going back to the bar enough already. Thinking that's when Auggie tells Annie about his feelings for her, but he decides not to yet and tells her that he's going to Iraq! Annie's not happy about that at all. But it really isn't that long of a trip, though and Auggie will be back before she knows it!

That was news to me that Joan was out of the office. Anybody else find that odd and kind of abrupt? Sometimes I feel like I miss stuff in shows or they don't tell you.

Megan supposedly "dies" in this episode and Annie is all upset about it. Flies to Germany where she poses as her sister to see the dead body, but come to find out it was all a trap to get Annie there with no help! This is not good. Who's after Annie now? Is it Megan's boyfriend?

I don't know who to trust in this show anymore besides Annie and Auggie. Because Eyal is still shady on things if you ask me. I think he wants to help Annie, just not sure what his intentions are. But she seems to always go to him for help and it always seems to work out for the best. Though Annie has to sometimes get Eyal out of trouble or before he goes to far with a suspect, etc.

I never fully understand why Arthur visits Jai's dad. Is it just to keep him in the loop or to try to figure out if he knows anymore about the case? I thought that whole issue was solved, but maybe not? Anybody else wonder if Jai is really dead? Saying the drone strike wasn't a waste. What in the world does that mean?

Annie is really desperate when she calls Joan is not even at the office to try to get money for this job they are doing. Joan pulls through, though. 

The whole thing with Auggie in Iraq was quite interesting. Pete, having trouble being there, though because his wife forced him there. Almost got a divorce from her, but he actually turned around and that was a happy ending with him and with Auggie, too.

Megan is there at the money meet and she's the one taking the money, not the waiter! This can't be good. Annie decides to follow her anyways and put the tracker on her. However, it doesn't end well. First, we find out that Megan's boyfriend proposed to her and then she actually winds up dead this time!

Wow, what a cliffhanger, right? Almost made me like Eyal more in this episode. He stays behind with the bad guys coming in after them so Annie could escape! At first, I thought she wasn't gonna go through with it, but she did. Leaving Eyal to get kidnapped by the bad guys. Almost thought they shot him, but he is still alive from the looks of next weeks promo.

Cliffhanger: Who called Annie on the phone?
