“Covert Affairs” fans, have you recovered from last week’s Auggie-centric episode yet?

On Tuesday’s (Aug. 31) episode “What Is and What Should Never Be,” we’re back focusing on Annie (Piper Perabo) — both her career and her personal life.

On the work front, Annie has been assigned to keep an eye out at an art auction. You know, there’s all sorts of shady dealings at these things. Don’t let those civilized number paddles fool ya.

She gets suspicious when bidding on a particular painting, “A Wild Scene,” gets out of hand.

Somehow, this leads her into trouble. How much trouble? Well, you can tell how serious it is because it’s raining. That’s a sure sign of Mother Nature reflecting the tumultuous nature of the case. Also, Joan (Kari Matchett) and Arthur (Peter Gallagher) get to arguing some more. Uh oh.

Okay, enough with the intrigue, right? We promised you a date. Here’s Annie and Jai (Sendhil Ramamurthy), who apparently decided to make his move. Even if we didn’t know he was assigned by Arthur to keep an eye on her, we’d be suspicious of his motives. Oh, and there’s a surprise visitor!
