Chuck Versus The Tic Tac S03E10 (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. We think that Casey was a Ring-operative, but naturally, he wasn’t. Chuck and Sarah try to prove this innocence, and they do, but he has to bear the consequences of his actions.

In 1989 in Honduras, Coburn is informed that he didn’t qualify for Special Forces training. He meets a Colonel. He gets offered a post into a black op outfit.

The same Colonel is the one that called Casey. He wants him to pick something up while on his next mission. They don’t know that Morgan is spying on them. Chuck catches Morgan and hears snippets of the conversation.

Beckman wants them to launch a trace-cell operation. It’s to test the CIA’s security at their subterranean facility. While Sarah is watching their backs and Chuck is performing the mission, Casey gets the package. Chuck sees him. Casey says that if he says a word, he’s a dead man.

Ellie tells Chuck that she got a neurology fellowship at USC. Devon is still set on joining Doctors Without Borders.

Back at the Castle, Chuck is informed that a fear-suppressing drug named Laudanol was stolen from the vault. Chuck thinks that it’s a test and blabs about what he saw Casey do. The general has Sarah remove Casey’s weapon. Chuck investigates and checks what Morgan recorded the night before.

Chuck flashes on the Colonel, who was dishonorably discharged from the army. He is now a member of the Ring. James Keller is the traitor. Sarah says that Casey committed treason. They are moving him to Thailand, outside the US laws of torture. They have to break Casey out and prove his innocence.

When they arrive, they see Casey’s buddies breaking him out. They come face to face with the Keller’s men. Casey goes with Keller. He whispers to Chuck that he knows that Keller is a member of the Ring.

The General wants them to capture and detain Casey. She tells him of his real identity, Coburn. They find the Laudonal. They also get Casey. He says that his old fiancée was kidnapped by the Ring.

Chuck goes to save the old fiancée. Walker goes to give Casey some much needed backup. Casey kills Keller.

On their way to save Chuck, Casey tells Chuck to take the pill in order to become the perfect Intersect. Chuck beats them up and is about to strangle one of them when Sarah and Casey arrive.

Casey discovers that he’s got a daughter named Alex. He can’t face it and leaves.

Beckman dismisses Casey from the service. Ellie tells Chuck that they are leaving for Doctors Without Borders. Devon says that they can stay for fellowship. They will make it work.

The General offered Sarah a transfer out of the Chuck squad. She’s in DC to see Shaw on a personal matter. Casey tells Chuck that Walker is a good woman. He still hasn’t lost her and he should go for it.
