I, For One, Look Forward To Meeting Our New Intersect Overlords
Although you may have seen it already…
Look for some major obstacles for Chuck and Sarah’s romance this season, promised Schwartz and Fedak, now that Chuck can protect himself, thanks to his new Intersect 2.0-derived abilities. “Sarah fell in love with the guy, she didn’t fall in love with the spy,” said Schwartz.
But hey, this seems, Okay. This means something positive. Right? Like, She’s in love with the guy? Now back slowly away from the ledge…
What else? Here’s a hail of bullets for what else to expect from Season Three:
- The Buy More gang will face their own challenges, new assistant manager (hmmm…), cutbacks, new management, and more.
- Lester is due for a backstory-heavy episode and Jeffster isn’t going anywhere. “Those guys are invaluable comic relief” for the show. SPOILER! There’s a Fight Club episode upcoming up. And if that’s not scary enough: “You will see what Lester sleeps in,” promised Schwartz. “It involves feet.”
- Chuck will fight Stone Cold Steve Austin but “maybe not in a fisticuffs-type action,” teased Levi. Although nunchucks might be involved in that showdown, which is set aboard an in-flight airplane.
- The Subway integration on Chuck will be very minor and none of the characters will be working at a Subway, as many previously surmised. (Schwartz joked that the show is now called “Jared”).
Zachary Levi will direct an upcoming episode of Chuck this season, one that happens to be especially mythology-intensive. Levi said that getting to direct the series was “a lot to take on” as it’s a difficult show to direct but also the “most incredible experience.”
Apologies. I don’t have a moment to comment directly. But please feel free to comment on these tidbits.
In a day or two I hope to have a list to present of what I’d like to see – and not see – in season 3. Of course, every time I get new information like this, my wish list becomes more limited!
