Chuck: Chuck vs. The Three Words
Carina is back as a woman in love and about to be married to an arms dealer. The Buy More is also back and we get Big Mike back at the expense of Emmit. Chuck performs admirably, but really botches things when he gets off track during their mission.
A little better episode than the premiere for this season we also saw this evening. There is a lot of conflict going on and I refuse to allow the annoying new Chuck outbursts in the middle of the mission to ruin it for me. Really, don't you think there is a little better time to try to talk things out?
Despite the acrobatics, Chuck almost gets Carina, Morgan, Lester, and Jeff killed, but in the end he saves them as well. I'm hoping that is not going to be the common denominator to this season. Chuck goes on mission, Chuck screws up mission, Chuck saves the day. Not that that didn't happen in the past.
The dynamics of the team is a little rocky at this point with Chuck and Sarah not really communicating and Casey sort of holding down the fort. It is really great to see all these characters so it sort of makes up for any expectations that weren't met in these first few episodes this season.
The situation with Emmit was pretty brutal. It is interesting that Casey choose to tell Chuck that he moved to Alaska. So we have Big Mike back at the Buy More. Of course this is much better for the cover as Mike is a much more reasonable person. We haven't seen if Sarah will be back at the Hot Dog place or if it will be something else this time. I can't wait to see that when the time comes.
I do think that Chuck is going to be killing people this season so let's all get to the point where we know the show will be a little more action packed (violent) and that Chuck will cause collateral damage. It's inevitable!
Nice scene at the end with Morgan and Carina. Based on her character that was pretty cool for him and really has got to raise his street cred with the other boys at the Buy More. So Anna's gone, but not dead as some of the rumors told us.
A much more Chuck type episode and I for one am glad to have him back. Mondays are going to be jam packed with the CBS Monday Comedy Block and Chuck then Castle, but with DVR ready to go we'll all be able to see everything we want. Thanks for reading...
