Chuck season 4 episode 5 called “Chuck Versus The Couch Lock” aired this evening on NBC. Season 4 has been off to a pretty bad start-the writers may have thought it was a good idea to mainly focus on Chuck-Sarah relationship problems for the first few episodes – but as viewers we must say that this is not always what we want which is why we say this week’s non Chuck-Sarah installment was a breath of fresh air for many of us.
“Chuck Versus The Couch Lock” centered around John Casey and we watched Chuck who is desperate to get another piece of the puzzle pertaining to his mother that Casey may have in his possession.
In order to accomplish his task Chuck tricked three of Casey’s former partners with a fake funeral.
Here is a brief recap of the episode:
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.
Just like previous Casey driven episodes (remember the one where we met his trainer) “Chuck Versus The Couch Lock” had some great elements,interesting action even-though there were not much dialogues.
The writers did a great job utilizing Casey’s old gang in order to create some intriguing scenes like when Jeff intercepted the phone call to find Casey and provide some of the most awkward conversations ever heard on TV.
The final scene in the bunker with the gold was hilarious -with Casey helping Morgan (Morgan is dating Casey’s daughter Alex and daddy is not aware of the matter as yet) and then telling him “If you break her heart, I break your…everything.”
