In the globe-trotting drama series, Perabo stars as Annie Walker, a young CIA operative whose exceptional linguistic skills and killer instinct make her invaluable to the Agency. After a whirlwind international exploration at the start of the season, Annie Walker (Perabo) finally has her sights set on the culprit behind the Chicago CIA facility bombing – Georgian diplomat Aleksandre Belenko (guest star Shawn Doyle). We resume the season with Annie and Ryan’s (Bishop) relationship in a delicate balance. Annie continues working outside the CIA as a private contractor but the task of bringing Belenko to justice will prove to be a challenge. She’ll have to throw out the Langley playbook as she begins her investigation into his motives – and more importantly – discovers who else is locked in his sights. Meanwhile, Auggie (Gorham) begins to uncover a mysterious connection between his past and Belenko’s targets, while Calder (Harper) recruits Sydney (guest star Nazneen Contractor) to infiltrate the Russian Embassy and Joan (Matchett) protects a secret that could destroy her career.
