Review - Covert Affairs Season 2 Episode 3 Bang and Blame

Last week, I talked about how the first two episodes of the second season didn't have the fish out of water feeling of the first season and how that was a big reason why I enjoyed the first season. "Bang and Blame" partially regains this by sending Annie back to the Farm to complete her gun training (finally!) and catch whomever is leaking names of recruits. The plot is perfunctory as always, culminating in Annie catching a line of dialogue one of the recruits says and having a lame midair fight. But it does give us some reflection on her time on the Farm and the life there. Best of all, Auggie shows up and is awesome as always.

The writers haphazardly throw in a new love interest for Annie, a doctor Annie meets while bringing her niece to the hospital. Annie decides to follow the instructors advice and go ahead with her personal life. It's all very random, framing the episode at the beginning and the end, without any chance to learn anything about him. I thought there was something fishy about the doctor, but we'll learn soon enough.

Score: 8.5/10
