Covert Affairs "Trigger Cut" Episode Review

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

Man, I have to start watching the previous episodes before new ones come on. Even though there wasn't that long of a break like there normally is, I felt like it was just long enough, that I had forgotten the thrill and sort of what was going on, of the show. Some of it was remembered, but others I was like "huh?". I'm not sure if it was just me that felt that way or if other people did, but it was a pretty good episode.

Ryan is still in bad condition after getting shot. But the important thing is, he didn't die. That's all I cared about and one I wasn't sure how it was gonna turn out. The show could go either way, though this show was never known to kill someone like that off. 

Speaking of killings, poor Auggie has had to deal with enough death to last him a life time. I feel so bad for him. Especially with sort of losing trust and his friendship with Annie, how is he gonna deal with it all? I just hope he doesn't go down a dark path. I don't think that's him, but like I said, you never do know how they might want to take the show. 

Even just one episode of it, I missed the Auggie and Annie relationship and am hoping it gets fixed quickly. I do like her and Ryan together, but there's nothing like Annie and Auggie. 

Annie decides to track down a lead on who tried to kill Ryan and who did the actual bombings. Enter Eyal! Who I've always thought had a thing for Annie, so I was somewhat disappointed when he said he has decided to make things up with his ex-wife who in turn actually wanted to do that for quite some time. However, it seemed to me that Annie was a bit sad about that, too. But what Eyal said to her, made her want to basically say "I love you" to Ryan.

The only part of the episode I didn't like at all and I'm not even sure why they are doing this, is Calder and his "girlfriend". I can totally tell he has real feelings for this girl he hooked up with, but I'm not sure how she feels about him. Even at the end when she gets scared of doing this spying for him with their possible lead, I'm not sure if her feelings were real or what she's doing. I've never liked her from the beginning, so I guess I'll just have to wait to see how that finishes out, though I wonder if it might end badly.

Good news in all this, is that Ryan finally woke up. Bad news, Annie didn't get to tell him what she wanted to after she returned home. Will she ever admit her feelings or will something big happen? I'm thinking it's the latter.
