Chuck -- "Chuck Versus the Mask" -- 02/08/10

Chuck

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
In a surprise spy maneuver, Agent Shaw (Brandon Routh) pairs Chuck with Hannah (Kristin Kreuk) for a mission. Shaw thus teams up with Sarah---but it might be his ploy to inch closer to her. Meanwhile, Morgan and Ellie snoop into Chuck's secret world.


As usual, Can't wait.

By that spoiler, it looks like everyone's hunches last week were correct.

Chuck spoiler on the "Ask Auisello" blog:

Spoiler:
Question: I have a Chuck query. I was wondering if anyone else will be finding out about Chuck’s secret in the near future? —Jenny

Ausiello: If by near future you mean this season then yes, someone else will be finding out about Chuck’s secret in the near future. In fact, this unnamed individual will not only uncover the truth about Chuck’s other life, he/she will end up joining him on a mission. And if you saw Monday’s immensely entertaining and hugely pivotal episode, you know it can really only be one of two people.

And from Adam Baldwin's twitter today:

Spoiler:
There's gonna be a frickin' Tiger at work today! I don't want 2 B anywhere near it unless armed w/ .33" (8.4 mm) ammo locked & loaded.

It could be Marc Singer and Chuck is attending a Beastmaster Convention.

I wasn't liking the episode. While I thought the spy stuff was cool, anything that pulls Chuck and Sarah apart is not cool in my book.

I like that Chuck is gaining skill, impressing Casey, and hopefully becoming more "at one" with the intersect. But, other than the Ring ending with knowing Shaw is around, I'm not sure things, in the near future, anyway, look good for Chuck and Sarah. Chuck's spy career, though, seems like it is at least starting to sprout wings.

I wonder how much time being seen with Hannah bought him from Ellie and Morgan.

I think Morgan is still going to keep prying, possibly on his own or at Sarah's prodding if Devin is still acting "off".

Great episode and finally glad to see Chuck developing as a spy. His suggestion to Casey was accepted with no hesitation on Casey's part. Great show of growth for both characters.

Enjoyed the "Superman" joke about Shaw.

Another fine episode.

I think Chuck and Sara ultimately end up together, but they have to shake it up a bit... They've done the get close, then back off etc. to death so they have to have various love interests to keep things different.

^ yeah.. and who better to come between Chuck and Sara than Superman and Lana Lang.

I liked the episode. Loved the Supes line. I guess this is the reason Routh was worried Chuck fans would hate him.

Yvonne Strahovski, Rachel Bilson, Kristin Kreuk, Jordana Brewster. Chuck is one lucky fuck.

Anyone think that Shaw and Hannah will end up together?

I mean, as far as geeky in-jokes go, you can't beat Superman and Lana Lang hooking up.

So how have the ratings been this season? Would love to get another season out of this show.

I'm surprised more agents aren't fighting to be Sarah's partner. All you have to do is hang around for a few weeks and she falls for you.

I enjoyed the episode, kind of interested to see what Morgan is going to do. He looked crushed at the end.

I know the role isn't cast yet, or even if it becomes a role, but the shadowed guy at the end reminded me of Victor Garber.

I liked the episode and the splitting of Chuck and Sarah apart. I am fine with who Chuck is with, but not really sold on Superman for Sarah.

Ever since Kristin Kreuk showed up on this show, Yvonne Strahovski just doesn't seem as hot anymore.

Its true. And it may be her being off of Smallville for a while, but Kristin looks even better than before.

It also helps that Kristin's wearing really short pants showing off her legs, too.

Have to agree... Kristin Kreuk is looking pretty ridiculously hot. But then again, so is Yvonne.

Don't like the Shaw/Sara romance.

Re: Chuck -- "Chuck Versus the Mask" -- 02/08/10

I guess we're not supposed to think about this stuff, but I thought there was a pretty big plot hole:

1. The Ring is using pieces of art to smuggle weapons (or whatever).
2. The government needs to uncover this plot.
3. The government breaks into the museum to get the smuggled art.

Is there some reason that #3, in the real world, wouldn't be replaced with "The government talks to the museum and examimes the art"?

I still get flashes of Lana when Chuck left and came back and just knew we were going to get the "I cant trust you Clark" speech...

Good episode. Nice that Chuck is getting more experience as a spy. I don't really understand the relationship between Shaw and Sara.

Strange that how Chuck is ok with becoming more of a spy. He'll eventually have to give up his relationship with Hannah so I'm surprised that Sara is letting Chuck go down that path.

Agreed, but I found that when she was breaking into the museum the first time, the outfit she had on was not flattering at all, and really made her look incredibly awkward.

This is from last week's episode ("Chuck Versus the Nacho Sampler") - I think the Buy More needs to sell a few of these quickly.

Good catch...LOL HD DVD Players. Maybe Best Buy gave them a discount to use it as their set piece.
