Chuck Versus the Other Guy S03E13 (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 and we finally learn who killed Shaw’s wife. It’s not who you expected and it will make things interesting in the next few episodes.

Shaw and Sarah are breaking into a place where the director is supposed to be.

Chuck is looking for Casey at the BuyMore. He tells him about the situation. Walker activates her distress beacon. Casey gives him the number to get some air support from Col Sanders. Shaw is getting ready for his revenge. She sees the video of Shaw’s wife. She also sees her Red Test. Shaw is creeping up on her with a gun. Chuck arrives with his tactical team.

Shaw puts away his gun. Shaw tells her that Sarah killed his wife. The Ring manipulated her in killing his wife. They hug. Chuck doesn’t have time to call off the tactical support.

Beckman is pissed at Chuck for wasting a lot of money. They don’t know who ordered Sarah’s Red Test. Shaw still wants to work with Walker.

Morgan quits the BuyMore because he thinks that he is going to be a spy.

Chuck is told that Sarah and Shaw are moving to DC. Chuck is staying in Burbank until Beckman knows what to do with him. Morgan comes home and finds Chuck drinking whiskey and playing Guitar Hero. Sarah walks in. She frees Morgan. He asks her if she loves him. She says yes. They kiss.

Sarah tells him that they have a mission. Shaw found the Ring HQ. The plan is to nab the director from his private elevator. The director walks in. He tells them that they won’t get the Cypher. Cypher is the Intersect main processor. The Ring has been working on their own Intersect. The director has a trap laid for them. Chuck and Sarah get nabbed instead. Shaw arrives and shoots all of the Ring operatives. He tells them to go. He’ll take care of the Cypher. Shaw is a traitor. He is working for the Ring. All of the Ring operatives are still alive.

Shaw and Walker are going to Paris. The Cypher parts were designed in France. Chuck is grounded. Chuck comes home. He made a copy of the tape that showed Shaw taking out the bad guys. Morgan immediately spots that Shaw was faking. The fight was staged and Shaw is working for the Ring. Chuck reports to Beckman. When Beckman spots Grimes, she immediately suspends Chuck. She ignores his calls because he woke her in the middle of the night. They go see Casey. He agrees to go with Chuck.

On the plane, Casey is making him do some research. He needs to figure out where Sarah is.

Meanwhile, Sarah gets nabbed by the Ring director and Shaw. Shaw brought her to the place where she killed Shaw’s wife. They drugged Sarah. She is paralyzed. He plans on killing Sarah. He gives the director technical data to complete their own Intersect. Sarah sees Chuck appear behind him as a waiter with a gun.

They fight. In the end, Chuck has to shoot Shaw. Sarah is alright. Casey gets the director. He leverages him as his way back in. Casey asks Beckman for a favour. My guess is that he asked Beckman to make Grimes an agent. His cover is his job at the BuyMore. That’s good, because he just asked Big Mike for his old job back.

Sarah and Chuck stay in Paris for a few more days. They are finally together.
