And What IS A Couch Lock, Anyway?
What we know so far:The short version:
Chuck must decide what he is willing to sacrifice to find his mother; Morgan reveals a potentially dangerous secret to Casey.
…And the long:
CHUCK’S LATEST MISSION PROVIDES A LINK TO CASEY’S PAST — AND POSSIBLY TO CHUCK’S MOM — ERIC ROBERTS, JOEL DAVID MOORE , DAVE BATISTA AND MEKENNA MELVIN GUEST STAR — When Colonel Casey’s (Adam Baldwin) former team returns looking for him, Chuck (Zachary Levi) must decide what he’s willing to sacrifice in order to find his mom. Elsewhere, Morgan (Joshua Gomez) works up the nerve to reveal a potentially dangerous secret to Casey. Yvonne Strahovski, Sarah Lancaster, Ryan McPartlin, Bonita Friedericy, Vik Sahay and Scott Krinsky also star.
What can it all mean?
We know that, ominously, Aisle of Terror and First Fight are coming up soon with the reappearance of Mary Elizabeth Bartowski looming large in Chuck and Ellie’s life. More importantly, just after Sarah’s found her feet after experiencing the emotional earthquakes of S3, MEB is entering Sarah’s life like major aftershock and tsunami. This episode might be the beginning of a mini-arc, one that shows us how Chuck & Sarah’s growing bonds are tested. It might be an arc where the team is broken up and scattered, at least, temporarily. But, then what is it that Chuck is “willing to sacrifice” when we know he won’t sacrifice Sarah, his team or his vocation?
Is it, his mother?
Don’t forget now that in the promo clip, Chuck says “I’m beginning to think that my mother might be one of the bad guys!” And what potentially dangerous secret could Morgan possibly know? That, I’d wager, is his growing relationship with Alex. And that, my friends, is dangerous only to him! :O
