Sorry, Annie Walker, your ex Auggie is not pining away when Covert Affairs returns on Tuesday, June 24 (USA Network, 10/9c).
In fact, “romantically, Auggie’s moving on with his life,” his portrayer Christopher Gorham reveals in our exclusive first look at Season 5. Helping him put his relationship with Annie out of his mind is Hayley (played by Felicity‘s Amy Jo Johnson), an investigator for the National Counter Terrorism Center. (Hmm, anybody else notice a striking resemblance between the women in Auggie’s life?)

“A big theme of this season is asking the question, can you keep your work life separate from your private life?” adds Gorham. Needless to say, that becomes a “complicated” task for Auggie. But first, there’s plenty of flirty banter in the sneak peek.
Elsewhere in the video, Gorham offers up hope for Annie/Auggie fans and talks about his alter ego’s career trajectory.
