‘Covert Affairs’ Star Chris Gorham Talks Helen: ‘Annie and Auggie Were on a Break!’ (Video)

The actor talks the USA show’s recent romantic turn and the fans reactions on this episode of TheWrap’s “Drinking With the Stars”

Fans were blowing up Twitter after last Thursday’s episode of USA Network’s “Covert Affairs.”

As Auggie (Chris Gorham) and Annie’s (Piper Perabo) estrangement continues this season, Auggie’s ex Helen (Michelle Ryan), who was dead and then not, re-entered the picture and the exes — um, spoiler alert — reignited the romantic flame.

“Listen, let’s be clear! Annie and Auggie were on a break,” Gorham told TheWrap‘s Senior TV Writer, Jethro Nededog, during the latest episode of Drinking With the Stars.

“Auggie is in a very vulnerable, emotional place,” he later added. “And she really kind of opened up in more ways than one [laughs]. They end up sleeping together, which Auggie instantly regrets.”
