“Covert Affairs” Season 5, episode 5, “Elevate Me Later,” is a story of role reversals. In this video from the episode, one such reversal is seen when Arthur (Peter Gallagher) has to leave Joan (Kari Matchett) in order to complete his first foreign operation for McQuaid Security.

Although Joan does seem to be a little bit worried about Arthur’s travel companion, Caitlin, she mostly just wants to see her husband off in style.

Elsewhere in “Elevate Me Later,” Auggie (Christopher Gorham) and Annie (Piper Perabo) switch roles as operative and handler for an operation in Paris. Auggie’s emotional history with an asset, however, complicates matters.

“Covert Affairs” airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on USA.
