Chuck (2010) – Versus the Couch Lock, and Versus the Aisle of Terror

Eric Roberts and Dave Bautista guest star in Chuck (Zachary Levi) Versus the Couch Lock. Written by Henry Alonso Myers it debuted on 18 October, 2010 and brought some more growth to this group of spies that we’ve grown to love over the past four seasons.

It seems some of Casey’s (Adam Baldwin) old team (including Roberts and Bautista) now work for Volkoff and may be able to provide some information on his mother (Linda Hamilton). But the only way to do that is to fake Casey’s death to draw them out of hiding.

When the plan goes sideways, Morgan (Joshua Gomez) finally has the opportunity to tell Casey that he has been dating his daughter, Alex (Mekenna Melvin).

While that’s happening, Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) and Chuck are captured by Packard (Roberts) and his men, and that’s where Chuck is delivered a shocking piece of news. His mother, code name Frost, isn’t a prisoner of Volkoff, she works for him.

Chuck has been risking everything for someone he thought needed rescuing, not for someone who is an enemy. As the episode closes out, the phone rings, and for the first time in years, Chuck hears his mother’s voice.

It’s another fun episode, I’m glad that Morgan and Alex are finally out in the open, course it doesn’t help that if it falls apart Casey will probably kill Morgan, but it’s really nice to see the little guy happy.

As always there are some great pop culture references, but the one to The A-Team takes the cake in this episode!

Chuck Versus the Aisle of Terror features Robert Englund! It also sees Linda Hamilton making an appearance, as well as Morgan Fairchild as Awesome’s (Ryan McPartlin) mom.

Written by Craig DiGregorio this episode aired just in time for Halloween, 25 October, 2010. And with a cast that includes Englund, you know they have to make it a little spooky-themed. And what could be scarier than having Lester (Vik Sahay) and Jeff (Scott Krinsky) decorating the store for Halloween?

Meanwhile, Sarah and Casey harbour doubts about Frost’s true intentions. She claims to be undercover in Volkoff industries, but the more they dig, the less evidence they find to support that, and come to believe that she is a double agent. And to protect Chuck’s blindspot, his mother, they come up with a plan.

And all Chuck wants, after attempting to stop Dr. Wheelwright (Englund) and his nightmare inducing gas that he’s developed for Volkoff, is for Frost to see Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) because she’s pregnant, and this may be the only time she’ll see her mother before she disappears again.

But that’s not the way things are going to play out. And Chuck and Ellie will be hurt terribly before the end of the episode.

More spycraft and laughs next week with more Chuck!
