Chuck Versus The Third Dimension S02E12 (NBC)

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 has trouble getting over Sarah shooting a Fulcrum agent in cold blood. In the course of this mission, he meets a rock star and they have some fun together. Meanwhile, Sarah and Casey are trying to foil an assassination attempt on that same rock star.

Morgan and his gang get conned by a new employee and Chuck finds out that he likes being a secret agent.

Chuck dreams of Sarah in a negligee in his bedroom. She’s hot. He saw Sarah kill a Fulcrum agent last time it’s been on his mind. It turns out to be a nightmare. Ellie and Devon say that he needs a day off.

The rock star Tyler Martin is going to be at the BuyMore. It’s already packed. Morgan is told by Big Mike that an ex-con will start working here. Chuck flashes on a time-delayed grenade that some guy is bringing in. Casey starts to run out of it but they run into a few obstacles. There is no time to defuse the bomb, so they put it into a safe and then into a fridge.

The General is briefing the team about the assassination attempt. It implicates some African dudes. The General wants Chuck to question Tyler Martin to find out why someone would want him dead. Sarah plans on using her feminine whiles to rope Martin in. Casey knocks him out. They’ve got a lead on the killer. Sarah and Casey go out and find out that they are dealing with a pro.

Morgan, Lester, Jeff and their new buddy Budderman go through the CDs of Martin to find the Golden Ticket to his benefit concert. Chuck tries to relax, but finds Martin missing from his place on the couch. He’s taking a wee in a fountain. Martin wants to party with Chuck. Two hot chicks want to dance with them.

Morgan has a triathlon in order to decide who the +1 will be to the concert. It’s kind of funny and Jeff wins. Morgan is feeling bad for Budderman, who’s been in jail for some years. The team gives Budderman the ticket, who immediately sells it to some Nerd Herd guy for $800.

Sarah and Casey trace Chuck to the club. They find the bomber there. He’s got grenades on all over himself. Chuck flashes on the necklace of one of the hotties. Martin pushes Chuck to go in the room all alone with the assassins. They take out their weapons and start running after Chuck, who’s lost his pants. Chuck has to jump off the building onto an elevator. Casey arrives in time to save Martin from the assassins. Chuck is still hanging from the elevator. Chuck flashes on the tattoo on the back of Martin. It’s a clear message about a private nuclear reactor being built in Africa. His manager is using Martin to move messages.

The General wants to use Martin as bait to infiltrate a merc army from Africa. The assassin is part of it. They want Chuck to convince Martin. Chuck is a bit off his game because he wants a normal life again. Sarah and Casey have never really had one so they don’t really know what they are missing. Martin is easily convinced by Chuck.

The assassin is using a diversion to get to Martin. Casey and Sarah are distracted. Chuck has to improvise. Ahmed is outside the door. He bursts in. Chuck tries manages to get Ahmed to put down the knife. Martin hears how he has been used and runs out of the closet. Martin runs onto stage. They stage dive to get away from Ahmed. Casey and Sarah get him.

Chuck tells Sarah about the Fulcrum agent she shot in cold blood. She says that she had to do this to protect Chuck.
