Covert Affairs - Houses of Holly

Kudos to USA for some character development and letting the lady stand on her own. In the most recent episode of Covert Affairs, "Houses of Holly," our heroine (played by the lovely Piper Perabo) encounters a situation much like the end of the Pilot episode. In the Pilot Annie is overwhelmed by the week's baddie and knocked near unconscious only saved by her mysterious former flame (the one storyline of the series which still isn't working for me). In the new episode Annie overcomes the situation herself and is able to take down the hired killer on her own.

I don't know how long the series plans to run with the love story, but I'm fine if they put it far, far on the back burner and concentrate the bulk of their time on Annie growing into her role as a CIA operative.
