Review - Covert Affairs Season 1 Episode 3 South Bound Suarez

"South Bound Suarez" was one of those "love blinds you" episodes, and it missed the mark. Annie's target is Julia, a woman connected to Victor, a government worker funneling money in Venezuela to bad organizations. Of course Julia is madly in love with him even though all signs point to him being a scumbag.

The writers were trying to make a comparison to Annie's own love life, but is there a comparison? Victor sends money to terrorists and tried to killed Annie. Annie's boyfriend left her without informing her. There's a big difference here. Julia still running to Victor in the end is plain stupidity; Annie holding on to a small memento is perfectly reasonable.

One thing I did like, however, was the shadow of Annie's ex, Ben. Yes, more praise for Piper Perabo. She pulls off the scenes well and was very sympathetic.

Score: 8.2/10
