Chuck Versus the Delorean S02E10 (NBC)

Exit sign at Le Nelligan

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.

This was another good episode. Chuck is curious why Sarah is taking a personal day. He’s jealous and he follows her, but to his surprise, she’s meeting her dad. Sarah sees through his surveillance and they meet. They also get roped into one of his cons.

It turns out all right and Sarah lets her old man escape, even though he was supposed to get back into federal custody for some fraud charges. Her dad kind of approves of Sarah.

Meanwhile, Morgan borrows money from Devon so that he can get an apartment with Anna. The trouble is that he sees a Delorean for sale and gets that instead. Captain Awesome isn’t happy about this, neither is Anna.

She wants to move in together. Chuck borrows Morgan’s bike to check up on Sarah. He sees Sarah and her dad. He thinks that Sarah is on a date. He flashes on him. Chuck is made by Sarah pretty easily.

He tells Sarah that the man she is with a total loser. He learns immediately after that he’s her dad. Sarah even introduces him. The next day, her dad thinks that Sarah is working on an angle. He shows her almost $1 million in his bag. He got this from Sheikh Amad, the Saudi oil baron. He’s also suspected on financing terrorists in Kenya. The General orders them to find out more from Sarah’s dad.

Morgan tells Devon that Anna asked him to get an apartment together. Devon says that he’ll lend him some dough if he needs some. Devon charges him 12% interest a week.

There is a Delorean in the shop. Apparently it’s a terrible car. Morgan buys it.

He must have done something right, you turned out pretty good.
Chuck to Sarah

Her dad pulled a Lichtenstein. He’s a type of scam. He sold them Nagamichi Plaza. The $700K was a finder’s fee for putting him in touch. Chuck flashes on a few Middle Eastern men coming out of an elevator. Her father pulls Sarah into the con. Chuck has to intervene as Hans Lichtenstein.

Devon tells Ellie that he lent Morgan some money. Chuck tells them that Morgan bought a barely functioning Delorean. Devon wants his money back.

The General wants them to continue the grift. She wants to use this opportunity to trace the Amad family bank accounts.

He seems to be very proficient in his chosen profession.
The General on Sarah’s father

The first step is to evacuate a floor in the building. Then they take over an office. Amad turns up at the meeting. He turns up with his own translator. They get another $10 million out of Amad. The General tells Casey that they never got the money. Sarah’s dad high tailed out of there. It was all a scam.

The next morning, Chuck makes Sarah feel better. Casey is told that they have tracked down Jack Burton. He goes to deal with the situation. Morgan asks Chuck for the money. From the room that Casey finds, it looks like someone went through Jack’s things. Amad has got her father. Chuck has got the money in his account. He’s got $10 million.

He tells Sarah, who’s getting ready to leave with some firepower. Casey follows separately. Chuck goes after them in the Delorean. Sarah gets ready to swap some duffel bags filled with cash for her father. Chuck arrives in the Delorean.

He says that he has the money. The Sheikh enters his account money and Casey sees it. He thinks that Chuck did a great job. Amad wants them killed. After getting a signal from Jack, Sarah shoots him. There is a firefight and the Sheikh takes the Delorean.

Chuck reports the Delorean’s theft. The General says that they were able to freeze almost a billion dollars in the Sheikh’s money. Jack is going to be picked up by the cops anyway for the fraud charges. Morgan is getting $12,500. Lester shows him that a ’69 Charger is in the audio shop. It’s also for sale.

Jack says that he trusts Chuck, that kid would never betray you. He made a $10 million bet that Chuck loved her. She asks him to get her some ice cream. Chuck meets Jack outside. He just avoided the cops, thanks to Sarah.
