Chuck S01E07 (NBC)

Chuck gets pulled back to Stanford, but not for the reasons that he thought he would.

In this episode we learn a lot about why Chuck got kicked out of Stanford and what Bryce had to do with this.

Chuck is finally able to connect the dots between Bryce, the prof that got Chuck kicked out and the reasons behind it all. It turns out that Bryce might have had a reason to want to get Chuck out of Stanford. Four years later Chuck thinks a lot about those days because of a new case.

I’m glad that they finally got this mystery out of the way, it was a long time coming. But the answer to these questions just brings more questions. Why did Bryce steal the intersect and why did he send it to Chuck? Since Bryce had good reasons for wanting Chuck out of Stanford, maybe he also had good reasons of doing what he did.

I found this episode pretty good. I liked how the mystery has been cleared up. The whole action going on at the BuyMore was also hilarious, with Morgan trying to get back at Tang’s crazy managerial style. I recommend Chuck, it’s fun and entertaining.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
