Chuck S01E08 (NBC) Chuck Versus the Truth

Chuck finds that he doesn’t like to get everyone involved in his spy games. It’s not his fault, but Ellie gets involved when she saves someone. At the same time, Chuck finds out from Sarah that nothing is going on between them, in no uncertain terms.

This means that Chuck will want to get some real female attention from somewhere else. Morgan is dealing with Tang’s wife and it solves a problem that the BuyMore has been having. Big Mike is happy. Chuck fake breaks up with Sarah to pursue other girls.

I liked this episode. I’m glad to see that Chuck has moved onto to other girls. There was no point in fake staying with Sarah just for the cover. Maybe there was, but it sucked. This way, he’s a free agent and he can hang out with the new girl Lou. Tang is gone. I was surprised. The character was such an antagonist I expected him to stay around for a while.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
