'Covert Affairs': Annie Confronts Auggie About His Ex-Wife (Exclusive Video)

Does Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) have something to worry about?

Covert Affairs picks up after Henry Wilcox (Gregory Itzin) plants a seed of doubt about Auggie's (Christopher Gorham) past romances, when he tells Annie to ask him if he's recently spoken to his ex-wife, Helen Hanson, presumed to be dead.

The Hollywood Reporter debuts an exclusive scene from the Aug. 27 episode, "Crackity Jones," where Annie does exactly that. The shock on Auggie's face is apparent.

"I haven't talked to her. How could I?" Auggie tells Annie. "She's dead."

But Annie's not done fishing for more answers: "Is there any more to that story?"

Auggie desperately reassures Annie that everything he's told her is "the truth." Does she believe him? Is he lying? Watch the scene above to find out.

Covert Affairs airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on USA Network.
