When we last saw Annie Walker on “Covert Affairs,” she was revealing her secret life as a CIA operative to her sister — and it didn’t go well.

Things between Annie (Piper Perabo) and sister Danielle (Anne Dudek) haven’t thawed much as the show returns to USA Tuesday night (Nov. 1), but work is still keeping her on her toes — as you can see in the opening few minutes of Season 2.5’s premiere, “The Wake-Up Bomb.”

Annie is in Venice (the show traveled to Italy for some location shooting), marking time until she finally hears from her contact. Things go sideways, though, and we’re treated to a pretty nice chase scene through the alleys, canals and squares of the ancient city.

Back in the States, Annie is stewing over the Venice mission — and enforced downtime on the orders of Joan (Kari Matchett) — when she meets a handsome chef (guest star Santiago Cabrera) who has ties to Basque separatists. As you might expect, it soon turns into more than just a meet-cute. That clip is at the end of the post.

“Covert Affairs” returns to USA at 10 p.m. ET Tuesday. Take a look at Annie and her new chef friend:
