Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Ellie Bartowski (credit only)
Wally Roberts
Judy Roberts


General Beckman would abandon the search for Orion, but Chuck convinces her there remains one option, getting a Fulcrum agent to talk. Although unauthorized, who offers a deal to Jill Roberts, who confides her 'uncle' Bernie, a family friend, is ranking high enough and trusts her. Alas, at the 'engagement party' for Chuck and Jill, Bernie attacks him and has a fatal cardiac arrest. After Sara betrays to Chuck the general's plan to 'bury' the Intersect project altogether, he and Jill, tailed by Casey, find and intrude the Fulcrum HQ where Orion must be held captive. Meanwhile Emmet tricks the nerd herd in making him look good enough to a Buy More HQ inspector to be 'promoted away', but that's not the true stake. Written by KGF Vissers

Chuck does it again.
15 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Chuck has had a mixed reception since the show first aired in 2007. Since then it has improved in many ways and Chuck Versus The First Kill is the best episode so far.

Chuck needs help finding his father, and so he turns to Jill for help. His handlers (wary of Jill) know that they need her assistance. As she is an insider of Fulcrum, and their best chance.

The team are led to a secret Fulcrum recruiting facility, in search of Chuck's father. Chuck and Casey go in as Fulcrum trainees, but their ruse is rendered useless as Fulcrum discover their ploy. Sarah and Jill must go into the Fulcrum facility and rescue Chuck before its too late.

The best Chuck so far 10/10
