Covert Affairs-- Season Finale: 10 non-spoilerish takeaways

I'm just going to say it: the season 3 finale of Covert Affairs--set to air this tuesday, November 20--is by far my favorite episode of the season.  In fact, it may just be my favorite episode of the entire series.  The finale, titled Lady Stardust, got this description from USA Network:  When a fellow spy is taken hostage, Annie travels to Amsterdam to eliminate Khalid once and for all. 

I was lucky enough to have the chance to watch the episode in advance, and believe me, if you're a fan of the show, this is not an episode you want to miss.  Here are my 10 (mostly) non-spoilerish takeaways.  And let me tell you, this was a hard list to come up with, because there is so much about this episode I would love to share and spoil.  But here goes:

1. In order to meet Kahlid's randsom demands, Annie has to go to some rather painful extremes.

2.  Augggie pops up when you--and Annie-- least expect him.

3.  Auggie's pattern of seeming to have an old friend in practically every city comes in useful.

4.  The hostage/randsom exchange does NOT go as you might expect.

5.  Arthur and Joan put in a phone call to Annie, causing an interruption that will make you groan.

6.  At some point in the episode, Annie makes a seemingly reckless decision--but not for the reasons you think.

8.  There's a hint--but just a hint--of a new mission for Annie for next season, coming from a surprising source.

9.  Auggie really is Annie's rock.  They've been growing steadily closer over the last 3 seasons, but this episode really showcases how deep and strong their friendship is.  And speaking of . . .

10.  It may not be strictly-speaking true that Auggie and Annie have "that talk" as teased here.  But I think it's safe to say that after this episode, their relationship will never be the same.

Questions?  Hit the comments, and I'll try to non-spoilerishly answer.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
