Chuck is running into trouble at work, and it’s because of his spy gig. He meets his new mission while looking for Morgan at the pier. It’s time for his interview at the BuyMore for the assistant manager position, but Chuck will have to make a choice.

Chuck is once again doubting Sarah and Casey. The spies are spying on him, what a big surprise. But to someone like Chuck who is used to trusting people, it isn’t easy. The lies and duplicitous behavior is getting to him. Morgan is trying to grow up, but will it last more than one episode?

I found this episode OK. It wasn’t as good as the previous one, but it was still alright. The best part was how Chuck got into trouble at the BuyMore. It’s amazing, but Chuck’s personal life was more interesting that his big case. Did he get the promotion? Read on to find out.
