Covert Affairs “Elevate Me Later” Recap

As this episode begins, things seem to be getting hot and heavy with Auggie (Christopher Gorham) and Hayley (Amy Jo Johnson). Right away Auggie gets a lead on “The Postman” the only lead they have in the Chicago attacks. Unfortunately, Auggie has to connect with his old flame, Natasha Petrovna (Liane Balaban) in order to track down the lead.

At the office Annie (Piper Perabo) wears a Scrunched Sleeve Blazer by Helmut Lang (sold out) and a mint blouse. This Kensie Women’s Stretch Crepe Blazer ($50.99) and this Chrissy Tulip Blouse In Mint ($38.99) are similar:

Auggie and Annie head to Paris to meet with Natasha to see if she will help them with a mission. Annie wears a Jonathan Saunders Lucy silk and cotton-blend jacquard dress (sold out). I liked this Tadashi Shoji Corded Lace Sheath Dress ($328) to recreate it:

Annie gets dressed up to try to find a way into the bank. If Natasha decides to help them in their quest, she’ll need to work her end. She wore the Roland Mouret Atria Wool Dress ($1,295 pounds). This Banana Republic Sloan Sheath ($140) is a great match:

It doesn’t take long for Auggie to jump into bed with Natasha and she agrees to help them on one condition, getting all of the charges against her dropped. Auggie tries to explain to Annie that he didn’t mean to sleep with Natasha, but it didn’t take him very long to forget all about poor Hayley. Annie wears the IRO Ashville Leather Moto Jacket (sold out) and carries the Stella McCartney Falabella – Small Shaggy Deer Tote (sold out). To recreate the look, I chose this Calvin Klein Women’s Faux-Leather Moto Jacket ($159.50) and this Kate Landry Bucket Hobo Bag ($79):

Annie needs to find a way into the bank, so she reaches out to Ivan Kravec (Martin Csokas) pretending to be a gun sales representative. Before her date with Ivan, she needs to get Natasha’s code key. Unfortunately, the CIA refuses to make a deal with her and Annie has to steal it, unbeknownst to Auggie. On her date with Ivan, she wore a navy fit and flare dress with gold/bronze strappy heels. I really loved this Sleeveless Lace Yoke Skater Dress ($29.99) and this Steve Madden Rykie Ankle Strap Heel ($109) to recreate the look:

Annie is able to give him just enough to keep the charade going and then she drugs him and gains access to his computer. Auggie is furious with Annie for running the mission her way without any consideration to his feelings.

She tries to make amends with him back in D.C., but he called in sick and she didn’t get a chance to connect with him. They did find out that their trail leads them back to Ivan, so it looks like Annie will have to see him again. Back in D.C. she wears a Peaked Lapel Blazer by Smythe (sold out). This was a hard one to recreate, but I did find this Denim & Co. One Button Leather Jacket with Pintuck Detail ($121):

Annie tried to make amends with Natasha on Auggie’s behalf and it seemed to work because she showed up at his doorstep at the end of the episode. Now what will he do about Hayley?
