Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Big Mike (credit only)
Smooth Lau
Jason Wang
Joe Lucky


Chuck would like to help buddy Morgan win back Anna, who now dates flashy Jason Wang. Alas, a flash shows he's part of a triad, so the general orders him to make friends with Jason so the team can spy on them, discovering a plot against the Chinese ambassador. To Chuck's despair, Morgan's safety isn't even a priority. Awesome promised Ellie, in his half of the wedding preparations, to book a band, but takes pity on eager nerd herd losers 'Jeffster' (Jeff and Lester). Written by KGF Vissers

Sarah Walker: I wanted to apologize. I could have been more sensitive before about your friendship with Morgan. It's just - it's difficult. I don't really have anyone in my life who cares about me.

triad, Anna has new boyfriend...
4 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

You can almost feel sorry for Morgan, almost, he does need to grow up some, and Anna has a new boyfriend with money and "looks" and car without the handlebars of bike and taco time drive through that was Morgan. But because Chuck flashes on Jason, he is a bad guy, triad, order to get close to him using Anna,(she never does find out), so Chuck and Sarah go on double date, Morgan caught "spying" on Anna, Chuck saves his life by destroying his dignity, they find the bug that Chuck puts there, think Morgan is guilty, kill him they say.

Well Jason's "friends" put a bomb in a roles that was bought by an ambassador, and Morgan who Chuck "breathe spray knocked out", is put in the trunk. Sarah gets into fight with 1 of the triad, and Chuck follows the roles with Casey on top of the nerd herder to save his friend. Well Casey promises to help window open so he can get in, takes over driving with remote, get to car Casey is the one told to get down and Chuck gets the bomb, (ambassador says bomb panics) chuck puts bomb in nerd herder, gets in drives away as Sarah drives up CIA let him go, asks where Chuck "the imbecile is saving the day", boom. Even Casey looks shook up and Sarah almost in tears but Chuck steps out, they relieved, asks for 1 more favor, gets Morgan out of Trunk.

All is OK between Chuck and Morgan, Anna gets back with Morgan, and we see Jeffster for the 1st time, and Devon gets out of "dog house" (tried to give Chuck his share of wedding prep, Ellie not happy), as he finished all including Ellie's part, now the band, no wasn't really going to use but giving Lester and Jeff their "dream".
