Chuck Versus the Mask S03E07 (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 third 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.

The third season started a bit strangely. Chuck has been training for a while, but it isn’t really working out. He’s not able to control the Intersect. Does anyone else think that this is like controlling the Force? Maybe Chuck should get some training from a Jedi Master to calm his nerdy and horny mind.

This was another good episode. Someone else developed a sort of Intersect and Chuck has to develop him as an asset.

Shaw is in trouble. He calls Casey. He needs help from the Intersect. Chuck arrives in time. Shaw has got 5 minutes of air left. Hannah follows him. This happens after Chuck told her that she can ride shotgun with him. They both work together to get the system back online. It works. The curator of the museum hires both Chuck and Hannah to be there when they unveil the mask of Alexander.

Shaw thinks that Ring is smuggling something into the US using the artifacts.

Morgan and Ellie are talking about Chuck. They are worried about what he is doing when he ducks out of the BuyMore.

Hannah tells Chuck during the soirée that she joined the Nerd Herd because of Chuck. She kisses Chuck in the control room. All of a sudden, she sees Sarah in the video. Hannah is watching all of this and it gives her the impression that Chuck is leaving with Sarah. Chuck only told them that Ring operatives are here to retrieve the mask. Hannah has to debug the system when Chuck disables it to get into the vault

There is a scuffle in the vault and Chuck just makes it out with the mask.

The Ring operatives have footage of Chuck and Sarah stealing the mask. They also see him kissing Hannah.

The Ring dude calls the BuyMore to get Hannah to the museum. He traps her in the vault, initiates the decompression cycle and calls Chuck. He tells him to bring the mask. When he goes down to the vault, Shaw and Sarah open up the base of the mask. They release some cyclosarin. Chuck flashes on it and knows the antidote. Vasilius probably has it. He’s got about an hour to save both of them.

Chuck and Casey head to the museum. On the while there, Chuck has the brilliant idea to use smoke grenades to make Vasilius believe that he was gassed with the cyclosarin.

The antidote is hidden somewhere in a vase. Chuck finds it quickly enough after deploying the gas grenades. Shaw and Sarah arrive. They take the antidote. Chuck manages to save Hannah as well. Chuck sees Shaw cradling Sarah.

Shaw tells Chuck that it’s time that his training wheels come off. The Intersect was designed to make agents more autonomous.

Ellie and Morgan find Chuck and Hannah making out.

Vasilius reports to the Ring that Shaw is working with Chuck and some others. He is shot for his reward.
