Chuck Versus the Balcony S04E11 (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.

Some agent is running away from some dogs in the Loire Valley in France. He injects a microchip into a bottle of wine. He is shot and killed. The bad guys can’t find the microchip.

Chuck and Sarah are out for dinner at a fancy restaurant. Sarah senses that something is up. Chuck is very nervous. Immediately, Sarah talks about her parents’ proposal. It dashes his own proposal. He had a whole thing planned.

Later, the General is briefing them about a nanochip containing the CIA’s black sites in Europe. Pierre Melville, a French radical turned terrorist, is also searching for the chip. Sarah and Chuck will attend a winetasting gala at the chateau. Casey will pose as Chuck’s manservant.

Morgan tells Chuck that he should propose to Sarah in the Loire Valley in France. Lester tells Big Mike that his parents have arranged a marriage for him. Lester is from Saskatchewan. His parents are sending her over. She’s probably a hottie and Lester will mess it up.

The team is in France. Chuck is being coached by Morgan. Morgan is good at finding ways to Casey distracted. Casey is searching downstairs. He has a trace on the nanochip. He tells Chuck and Sarah. They are on the topmost floor at a balcony, where Morgan told Chuck to propose. Pierre is there with his goons and they find the injector. He licks the tip and knows the exact vintage of the wine. The bottle is on the move.

Sarah pretends that she’s drunk and goes after Casey. Chuck finds the nanochip. It’s in a glass of wine about to be drunk. He runs off with it and then has to fight some bad guys. They have to be extracted before Chuck can propose.

Beckman arrives at Castle. She says that they are going back to France. They are going to sell Pierre a different chip. They are leaving tonight.

Lester’s fiancée arrives. She’s hot. He’s hiding. Then he comes up with some traditional Indian stuff, that doesn’t go well with her. She’s not traditional. She comes back and Lester messes it up again.

Sarah overhears Morgan and Chuck talking about the proposal. She talks with Morgan. She learns all that Morgan has to say. She wants Morgan to work for her now to make the proposal in France happen.

Someone is watching Sarah during the op. They exchange briefcases. Someone arrives to strangle Chuck. Pierre arrives to gloat and to take his money back.

Chuck takes care of the Pierre and then hides them. Sarah is going up to meet Chuck. Casey arrives to coach them. He spots that in the scuffle, Chuck dropped the ring. Sarah gets it and puts it in Chuck’s pocket.

Chuck proposes to Sarah and she gets arrested as a traitor.

Back at Castle, Casey tells him that once he proposed as well. He says that it’s not about the location, but the girl. Chuck runs out to see Sarah. Sarah says that she is leaving. It was a setup to establish Sarah’s cover as a double agent.
