Chuck returns tomorrow and we have some sneak peeks from the premiere to get you in the mood for the final season of this spy caper. Warning light spoilers ahead.
The first episode “Chuck vs. the Zoom” sees the team adjusting to their new freelance spy life and to the new Intereset. They no longer work for the CIA, but instead have formed the spy for hire company ‘Carmichael Industries.’ This is a competitive market and will see them competing against other groups.This includes ‘Verbanski Corp’ which is run by guest star Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix). Moss will be playing Gertrude Verbanski, who also happens to have a past with Casey (Adam Baldwin) that looks set to complicate things further.
Without the protection of the CIA it will make the missions all the more dangerous as their resources will certainly be limited. There is a further element of danger as the new Intersect is one Morgan Grimes (Joshua Gomez).
Like Chuck (Zachary Levi) before him, Morgan has a lot of learning to do when it comes to using the Intersect effectively and he too will get left behind when they go on missions. There will be times when he is required to save the day; this will not be a smooth process and I’m sure they are going to have fun with how Morgan will adapt to his new skill set. As seen in one of the sneak peeks below Morgan has decided to ditch the term ‘flash’ and has adopted his own name; ‘zoom.’ Are you looking forward to seeing Morgan in this new role?
The season opener will see the team facing a rich thief (guest star Mark Hamill) and a conniving investor (guest star Craig Kilborn), who has stolen some money from some very dangerous people. Away from the new spy business we will see Jeff (Scott Krinsky) and Lester (Vik Sahay) taking things to a whole new level with yet another scheme, what could it be this time? We will also see Chuck ask for Morgan’s help with a special surprise for Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski), this sounds like it could have disaster written all over it but it is good to see that Chuck still wants to spoil his new wife.
Are you looking forward to the return of Chuck? How do you feel about the show ending? Let us know in the comments section.
