TV Equals: "How do you solve a problem like Auggie? “Starlings of the Slipstream” made a step in the right direction. As I mentioned in my post last week, I have not been a fan of the character this season so far on Covert Affairs. His interactions with Hayley and Natasha made him look like a jerk, and the instant chemistry between Annie and McQuaid didn’t help. I still have concerns that his situation with Belenko is being shoehorned in to have him interact with Annie more, but I’m willing to see how it plays out."
