Hebrew on American TV Action Shows

First, there was fractured English from an "Israeli" character on NCIS.

Thanks to EstherK, the Urban Kvetcher, I've learned about an Israeli on a show called Covert Affairs.

So, why is this spy running away from these Hareidi men, or is she?  Or whatever.



Details:

The CIA has learned that the Iranians have somehow gained access to American missile specs, and, to find out how that might have happened, Annie is sent to Jerusalem to make contact with Isaac Reiss, the rocket scientist who designed the missiles. Annie is delighted to find out that she'll be working with her old friend Eyal Lavin again, but dismayed to learn that he has orders to report back to the CIA on her conduct in the field. Still, the two forge ahead with their mission and make contact with Isaac. When he mentions a mysterious girlfriend whom Mossad's surveillance failed to find evidence of, Annie knows she's found the source of the intel leak-Isaac's unknowingly dating a spy.

By the way, this blogger notes (see my first reference above) that it's

nice to hear Hebrew spoken properly

Is this part of the plot to take over the entertainment industry?
