Chuck Versus the Imported Hard Salami is another exciting episode of "Chuck"
5 December 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Chuck is now going out with Lou, the sandwich girl we met in the last episode. Morgan, hearing this, makes a play for Anna. Too sudden. Lester, on hearing of breakup of Chuck and Sarah, tries to make his moves on the Weinerlicious lady. Sarah comes on too strong for him so he leaves. When Chuck and Lou are kissing in her office, Chuck notices a poster and gets Intel in his brain from it. It has the name of Lou's ex-boyfriend who owns a dance club. He's also the son of an arms dealer. So Chuck is ordered by Sarah and Casey to wear a bug to tail this dealer. Unfortunately, this interferes with Chuck's date with Lou at the club. They make up the following day in her deli after a long wait with other customers but after seeing a photo provided by Sarah and Casey of Lou with one of the dealers, Chuck confronts Lou after seeing her with her old boyfriend. Turns out she was delivering meats. Nevertheless, after this, the ex puts Chuck and Sarah in the car trunk as Casey, having found the watch tail bug in the water glass, goes to Lou's place as an FDA agent and gets Lou to reveal her delivery number after revealing Chuck's true identity. After Casey manages to shoot the captors, Chuck and Sarah run toward a box that carries a bomb that has only seconds to explode. Sarah tells him to run but Chuck refuses. Thinking they'll die right away, Sarah kisses Chuck! Bomb doesn't explode so Sarah now feels awkward while Chuck feels great. The next day, Lou and Chuck mutually agree not to see each other again. As Chuck leaves a message for Sarah to ask for a date, Sarah and Casey open the "bomb" and find a man inside. It's Bryce! And he's alive!...Another exciting episode of "Chuck" that is often funny and action packed! Many wonderful scenes between Chuck and Sarah and Casey, not to mention Morgan and Anna and Lester. Not as funny and touching as the last episode especially with no Ellie and Awesome but entertaining enough that I can't wait for the next one. So until next time...
