Chuck Versus the Cubic Z S04E03 (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.

In this episode, there are a bunch of WWE actors, from Stone Cold Steve Austin to Stacy Kiebler. Everyone spends time crawling around in the ventilations shafts of the BuyMore, as a prisoner transport goes awry.

A prisoner transport gets diverted to the BuyMore. At the BuyMore, there’s a new spy named Greta, who’s got very long legs and is really hot. She’s played by Stacy Kiebler.

The prisoners are Steve Austin and Nicole Ritchie.

Big Mike arrives at the BuyMore. He wants to marry Morgan’s mom.

Chuck flashes on Heather Chandler. She was connected to Frost and she might be connected to his mom.

Panzer fashion a weapon out of a newspaper and escapes. Volkoff engineered the transfer so that Panzer would be in the same transfer as Heather. He wants Heather dead. Panzer knocks out Greta, who’s also played by an ex-WWE wrestler, Stacy Keibler.

There is a fight and they escape through the air ducts. Volkoff even stages an extraction attempt, but they are foiled. Chandler talks to them at the end. She says that Frost was involved in Operation Beacon, a way to funnel weapons.

The episode ends with Chuck and Sarah clearing up the air. Sarah isn’t ready to talk about marriage and kids, which Chuck mentioned in passing at the beginning of the episode or at the end of last episode. However, Big Mike’s cubic zirconium ring falls at their feet and Chuck picks it up. He’s on one knee and it looks like he’s going to propose to Sarah. He doesn’t, but the episode ends before we see what happens.
