Covert Affairs - Season 5 - Mid-Season Finale Post-Mortem

Thanks to Richard for the heads up.

On Tuesday’s Season 5 summer finale of Covert Affairs, the spy discovered that McQuaid Security’s Caitlin and diplomat Belenko framed her new love interest Ryan — not to mention shot him. While Caitlin bit the bullet, Belenko is still in play, and possibly targeting Arthur.
Below, executive producers Matt Corman and Chris Ord discuss Ryan’s fate, Auggie and Annie’s (romantic?!) future, Season 5’s “intense” arc and more.

TVLINE | Given how many cliffhangers you have at the end of the finale, is it safe to say that the next episode picks up immediately after?
MATT CORMAN | More or less, yeah. Shawn Doyle’s character, Belenko, talks about Istanbul, and the action picks up there right away, basically.

TVLINE | Belenko tried to blow up the car that Arthur was in. Is he specifically targeting Arthur or is this part of a larger plot?
CHRIS ORD | You were right to pick up on the fact that he was aiming for a target. There’ll be plenty of mysteries surrounding what that target is going forward. We’ll reveal that in the next six [episodes].

TVLINE | Is it just a coincidence that Arthur has moved over to McQuaid’s company and now he’s being targeted by Caitlin and her cohort?
CORMAN | In a good way, you’re reading into a lot of things that may or may not be there. So you’re looking at these episodes with the right kind of lens, which is conspiracies could be around every corner. But we don’t want to give away too much.

TVLINE | Is Annie’s resignation going to stick? Is she going to remain at McQuaid’s company?
ORD | In the short term, yes. Certainly, her quest going forward revolves around what we’ve seen this summer season. So regardless of where she’s working, she’s always going to be seeking out the truth and trying to bring about justice. So you don’t necessarily need a title to support that.

TVLINE | I think we can say that McQuaid is probably going to survive, right?
CORMAN | Well, you don’t want to give it away, right? [Laughs]

TVLINE | You wouldn’t add Nic Bishop as a regular and kill him off so soon!
CORMAN | Well, you never know on Covert Affairs. But he’s getting good medical care. But he was shot. … I think he’s in stable condition when we find him.

TVLINE | Caitlin’s dead, McQuaid is in the hospital — is there a power vacuum or power struggle at his company when you pick up?
ORD | There’s certainly a power of vacuum. Whether there’s a struggle is another question. Arthur’s the most senior executive left standing at the company. Despite having been the DPS, he’s not super Machiavellian like Henry Wilcox was. But with the same respect, he’ll find himself assuming a role that he didn’t expect to assume when he came on.
