  1. Laurie says:

    Woo Hoo! She and Eyal are amazing together!!!!!

  2. Sara says:

    Seriously, this is the best news ever. I honestly don’t get the whole Annie/Auggie thing. She and Eyal have so much more chemistry. I don’t understand why they don’t bring him on as a regular.

    • wordsmith says:

      I feel like Eyal’s appeal is that he ISN’T a regular. The fact that he shows up unexpectedly and then disappears again is part of his charm. If he were a permanent part of the team it just wouldn’t be the same.

      • Sara says:

        That’s true. I should really say that I wish he appeared more regularly than he does.

      • CBWBDK1 says:

        I disagree. He should be in every epsiode! He’s a fantastic actor and such a cool guy.

      • Asta says:

        It’s like Kalinda on Good Wife everyone loved her so they gave her a bigger role and people really only liked her in small doses. I adore him but it would prevent her from other romantic encounters. Have they even kissed?

        • S says:

          Yes, in “Girl Like You” when Annie honey-traps him, and in “Rock-and-Roll Suicide” as a subtle way to scan a train station.

          My personal theory, based off their goodbye’s in “Lady Stardust,” is that they will be the end-game couple. The whole CIA ban on dating foreigners would make for interesting hijinks, but I think they’ll keep that relationship for when Annie and Eyal both choose to move onto slightly less dangerous careers.

    • Julie says:

      I agree they have way more chemistry than Annie and Auggie but I’m also interested in the new guy (McQuade). If Eyal can’t be around, this guy will do.

    • Laura Robinson says:

      Yes Yes I agree.

    • I do not get the Auggie appeal either. I will be so glad to see Eyal back with fingers crossed that it will be for a LOT of episodes!!

      • Asta says:

        I thought Auggie was so handsome in the beginning, then I remembered he played the dorky guy on Ugly Betty and I can’t keep that vision out of my mind!

    • Peggy Cooke says:

      Very hard to understand why Eyal isn’t a regular, also Oded is the best actor on the show & his an Annie’s chemistry is super sizzling.

  3. maryploppins says:

    Let me just offer a resounding: YYEEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!!! And I hope it’s for more than one ep and for more than 3 frakking minutes!!

  4. CJ says:

    Yes!!! Love Eyal. His episodes are always the best.

  5. Nicola says:

    Yay!! Very good news. :)

  6. Lizzie says:

    I am an Auggie/ Annie fan but I do love Eyal. Augie is her best friend and Eyal is her equal. He does challenger her and doesn’t let her get away with things. So he will probably be the one telling her to tell her secret

  7. Kim R says:

    Yes please. :D

  8. EL says:

    Stoked about this – he adds so much to every episode he is in!

  9. Gwen says:

    Best news today!!! Love him and Piper together!

  10. Nicole says:

    It wouldn’t be a CA season without him popping in. One of my faves, I can’t wait to see more of their chemistry!

  11. ames says:

    I like her with Auggie, but I love her with Eyal. I hope that he sticks aroubd for a lot more than just one episode.

  12. LEP says:

    Great to hear. I agree they have great chemistry together, but I was thinking there was a huge age difference (like 15-20 years). I was wrong. Oded was born in 1970, and Piper was born in 1976.

  13. Eliza says:

    Yay!!! Best news. I love Eyal. And I love Annie & Eyal together. Hope it’s for more than one episode though.

  14. Vicki Ehredt says:

    Yippee, hope he is back for more than one episode. Love Eyal!!

  15. Yesssss! So happy to know he’ll be back. He and Annie have such great chemistry.

  16. Daisy says:

    I don’t really care why as long as the answer to “how long” is forever.

  17. Kayla says:

    Yes!!! He is so delicious.

  18. CBWBDK1 says:

    He should be in every epsiode! Make him Annie’s partner!

  19. Haya Sarah says:

    Happy….Happy and I hope for more that on show or 3 minutes but like season 3 a good 5 to 6 shows. Would be nice for more. He is what makes the show.

  20. Michelle says:

    Best news ever, love Eyal & Oded Fehr 😀

  21. plumcuckoo says:

    I knew it…I knew it. When they said she was “missing” for four months I said to my husband I bet it has something to do with him, what better person to his her?

  22. Pat says:

    I am happy to see that Oded Fehr will be back on Covert Affairs. Now with that said, only one episode will be awarded to us with his gracious presence???? DARN!

  23. Kelly says:

    *ecstatic snoopy victory dance* now if only we get a juicy storyline like in season 3!! Half the season makes sense with the right storyline *crossing fingers*

  24. Beth says:

    Yes- this is fantastic news! Love Annie and Eyal together.

  25. Elle says:


  26. Anne says:

    I thought I read that he was sick so it’s great he’s back!

  27. Francine JE says:

    Glad that Eyal is back and I trust that Annie’s will follow. Now that she isnt a Rookie and plenty dark (attitude), I am anxious to see her voup with her “death now she’s alive” issues.

  28. Liesl says:

    Yes! One of the only reasons I stick with this show! Love him and the character he plays.

  29. Fitch says:

    Cool! The hypothesis this brings to mind is that Annie and her doctor were introduced by Eyal, she might have spent time in Israel instead of the South Pacific and maybe Eyal arranged for Mossad to pay the bill. I haven’t figured out how Annie pays her bills: she can’t use her own money or they could trace it. When she went dark last season she had a bunch of money in the bag from Eyal, and it was sanctioned because Calder was in on it. This time she’s on her own. This season is off to a terrific start. Love it.

  30. Sarah says:

    Best news ever….now when is Ben Mercer going to make his way back as well???

  31. Susan Knudsen says:

    Like like like !!!

  32. John says:

    I think her mystery freak out is a side effect from whatever she was injected with by Eyal to make her look dead. That’s why he’s back.

  33. Angie says:

    One episode is not enough! These two have such great chemistry!

  34. judy says:

    Glad to see him back, adds an element of mystery and intrigue.

  35. clyde says:

    Come on Covert Affairs Writers we need Eyat to appear in more than one episode as the chemistry between him and Annie is pure gold and greatly adds to the intensity of the program

  36. Ellen says:

    Please more than one episode. Annie needs Eyal and Eyal needs his Nishoma!

  37. D Menke says:

    Eyal is my favorite Annie hookup.

  38. Why do I think Eyal knows what Annie’s secret is? After all a lot of medication are manufactured in Israel perhaps a link to the mysterious medication. Perhaps there is going to be a Mossad/ CIA joint operation after all who better to know the leak than the “friendly” agency that secretly spies on them. hmmm.

  39. Heather says:

    I think Eyal is a great contrast to Annie. They work
    well together & against one another for the same
    job. I think he should be on Covert Affairs more.

  40. Latinoamerigirl63 says:

    I’m so glad that Eyal is coming back. I think that Annie and Eyal have a special relationship and would like to see more of chemistry together.

  41. Sam says:

    Hope Oded will have more episodes in the future, he and Piper has great chemistry.

  42. bowielover62 says:

    Can’t wait! Annie and he are so good together.

  43. Paula says:

    He is the best very believeable
    And very interesting. Makes me want
    To tune in. He needs to be a regular

  44. A says:

    BEST NEWS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my goodness this just made my day! YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!

    However, can he just stay forever? Please!

  45. A says:

    Wow I don’t think I have ever seen comments so overwhelmingly happy before. Love it. Love Eyal.

  46. Diane says:

    Such good news for fans like myself. Wish the producers/writers of this show would pay more attention to the fanbase. If Eyal is a fan fave, have him appear in more episodes. This would boost the ratings even more, which is what it’s all about anyway in today’s TV world.

  47. colin larkworthy says:

    Yes yes yes such a good actor amazing talent so glad eyal is back

  48. Corina says:

    YEEEESSSS!!!! I love Eyal. And I am quite certain he once again helped Annie out of a difficult situation. If she can’t contact Auggie, it’s Eyal she goes to… Thir friendship is one of the best dynamics on this show, Oh this really just made my day!

  49. Claire says:

    My wishes have come true!

  50. Adel says:

    Just love Annie and Oded Fehr Cant they get together? The TV is on fire when they are together
