Chuck Versus the Aisle of Terror S04E06 (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.

It’s the start of the story arc which involves Linda Hamilton, playing Chuck’s mom. Is she CIA or not?

* * * * *

Two weeks before Chuck’s mom called him, back at Volkoff Industries, Freddie Krueger is walking around. He’s developed some kind of nightmare toxin. She thinks that she has a buyer in LA.

Chuck’s mom wants to meet him in an hour. He tells Sarah, which is good. Sarah comes as backup, but she’s quickly spotted by Chuck’s mom. They finally put their guns down. Mary doesn’t want to know anything about Chuck. She says that she is in deep undercover at Volkoff. The records were expunged. She wants Chuck to pose as the buyer for the nerve gas.

The General briefs the team. Chuck will be the buyer. The General is impressed. He tells Morgan and Casey.

Devon’s mom is spending the whole week with them. It’s going to drive them insane. Erin doesn’t like his mom.

Morgan is stressed at work. Big Mike tells him to be delegate. The op starts up. Chuck meets with the scientist Dr. Wheelwright. Chuck’s mom arrives. She sabotages the op. She pulls a gun and shoots Chuck. She takes Wheelwright and shoots some more. Chuck isn’t dead because he was wearing a vest.

Morgan puts Lester and Jeff in charge of decorating the store for Halloween.

Casey has pulled Morgan into this op, much to everyone’s surprise.

Chuck’s mom turns up at the back of the Buy More. She’s got a gun on Chuck again. She puts it away. She says that she was keeping up appearances. Volkoff was tapped into the surveillance feed, so she had to protect him. She brings him to where she’s got Wheelwright stashed. Chuck tells her that Ellie is preggers and that she’ll be a grandma soon.

Casey doesn’t trust Chuck’s mom. He’ll check on the expunged records to see if she’s above board.

Jeff and Lester go overboard decorating the Buy More. They’ve put together an Aisle of Terror. It’s scary in a bad way, with old people, and interspecies relations. It’s a bit stupid.

Ellie, Devon, and Honey are shopping for the baby. Mary goes to check up on her. Mary gets an idea. She will give them a teddy bear and plant a camera inside so that she can watch them.

Something goes wrong at Castle and Wheelwright, Sarah, and Chuck get exposed by the Atroxium. Chuck locks Sarah away. Wheelwright says that he tested it on himself. He isn’t scared of anything anymore.

Wheelwright takes Chuck with him and takes the Atroxium with him. They end up in the Aisle of Terror. It doesn’t scare Chuck, but makes Wheelwright break down. Sarah gets Chuck the antitoxin.

Casey took Morgan with him to meet his contact. He uses Morgan as bait. They find out Chuck’s mom is completely legit. At least that’s what he tells Morgan. Casey tells Sarah that Project Isis ended 20 years ago. She’s working for Volkoff.

The CIA grabs Frost when she’s about to meet Ellie. Sarah is part of the snatch team. Ellie never got to meet her mom again.
