Chuck Versus The Fat Lady and The Gravitron S02E07-08(NBC)

Le Deux Cent, a provincial govt buildling on Chemin Ste-foy

Chuck is an American science-fiction television program created by Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak. The series is about an “average computer-whiz-next-door” who receives an encoded e-mail from an old college friend Bryce Larkin, a rogue CIA agent, which happens to embed the world’s greatest spy secrets into his brain. This is called the intersect.

From the Wikipedia entry on Chuck.

While Chuck has to deal with his new situation, he gets to enjoy the company of Sarah, working for the CIA, and Casey, working for the DOD. They use him as an asset to accomplish their missions, which surprisingly happen around town (?).

Chuck has just started its second season and it’s still entertaining. The mix between an everyday guy and espionage doesn’t get boring, since the character of Chuck actually puts us in these situations as well. I recommend it, though it’s not for everybody.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Morgan and the Buy More guys get stuck watching the store during Thanksgiving. They escape for a dinner at Ellie’s.

In 2002, Chuck bribed a carnie to stop a Ferris wheel to ask Jill to go steady or some shit like that. Jill Roberts is a Fulcrum agent, at least that’s what Casey and Sarah. Jill and Chuck are getting busy in bed. Jill gets a text message and Chuck flashes on it. It was coded. He knows that she’s a Fulcrum agent. He runs out. Casey and Sarah catch him. They tell him that her code name is Sandstorm. They tell him to go back in and pretend that nothing has happened.

They were in some hotel and Chuck finally comes back. The General thinks that Jill was recruited while she was at Stanford. His flash referenced an agent called Leader. She wants him to leverage his relationship with Jill to find out more. Chuck wants to do this. She’s already betrayed him twice. For some reason, Ellie is cleaning up the apartment. Devon’s family is coming to visit.

Ellie tells Morgan that he’s not invited for Thanksgiving. He will probably screw something up. Morgan is recruited with Lester and Jeff to guard the store before Black Friday. Jill calls Chuck to set up a date. It’s at a mystery location. He goes to see Sarah. She preps him on how to kiss. Jill is taking Chuck to some music concert. There is still a lot of sexual tension between Sarah and Chuck. Jill takes him to the Ferris wheel and it stops at the same place as before. She pulls a gun on him after the kiss. She says that she works for Fulcrum. In her lunacy, she actually believes that Chuck is head over heels for her. She tells him what will happen. A Fulcrum is waiting for them downstairs. It’s Leader. Leader wants Jill to shoot Chuck in the head right now. She doesn’t pass the test. When he’s about to pull his gun, Jill pulls hers on Leader. Chuck escapes, but not for long. Chuck activates the carnie ride. It disarms Leader. That is the lamest name ever.

The ride stops and Chuck falls on Leader. He’s knocked out. Chuck gets out of the ride. Sarah/Casey arrive at the carnival. Jill is there. She was recruited while she was at Stanford. She couldn’t get out of it. Leader arrives and Jill shoots him. He’s still alive. Casey and Sarah take Jill into custody.

Jill says that Leader is at a mobile medical unit. Like an idiot, Chuck opens the doors to Jill’s holding cell. Chuck wants to ask her some questions while she is hooked up to the lie detector. She didn’t love Bryce. She didn’t sleep with Bryce. Casey and Sarah take the mobile medical unit and Leader.

Jill’s handler told her to dump him because he got kicked out of Stanford. He frees her. She promptly betrays him again and pulls a gun on him. Casey and Sarah arrive back at HQ. Leader and Jill put Casey and Sarah in a holding area. It was all a trap. Jill shot Leader just for show. They get into the Joint Intelligence DB. Jill says that they are looking for Bruce Larkin.
