And Your Place To Tell Us What You Thought!
Here’s what we know officially:
Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Sarah’s (Yvonne Strahovski) wedding prep includes one final detail: ensuring that the mother-of-the-groom (guest star Linda Hamilton) makes it to the ceremony alive. Meanwhile, Morgan’s (Joshua Gomez) responsibilities as Best Man include his most dangerous mission yet, as he faces Vivian Volkoff (guest star Lauren Cohan). Elsewhere, Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) tends to the last details of the rehearsal dinner and seeks help from an unlikely source.
Even this “official” synopsis leaves out a couple of important things. We know who Agent-X is, Vivian has a family too, and lastly, Orion is still calling the shots. He is, after all, a genius and a hero, and his being dead doesn’t change that!
But there’s something else going here that I think has been more-or-less forgotten (or, at least, under-appreciated).
Who’s The Bad Guy Here?
I’m guessing, hours before seeing the show (and being ignorant of anything but the synopsis) that Chuck is facing a baddie this week, someone who is not a Volkoff. In fact, I think it’s his biggest nemesis of all, the one who tried to kill him and the one his father warned him against. That would be the CIA/NSA.
If you read the synopsis closely, it’s not actually Chuck that’s going after Vivian. The “he” in “… he faces Vivian Volkoff…” is Morgan, and saving MamaB from her seems to be his mission, as much as Chuck’s. Well, we’ve seen from official spoilers that Mary can be a bit stubborn about doing things her way. And Chuck will be right in the middle of all that (but only if she lets him). Perhaps his toughest job this week will be keeping the about to be mother-in-law on the same side as the about-to-be daughter-in-law! 😉
Please let us know what you thought!
Oh, I’d like to thank everybody who put in comments (in the spoilers) links to the clips, promo’s, conjectures & reviews. The information is always appreciated.
