Shaw nearly suffocates while attempting to 'borrow' from a prestigious LA exhibition Alexander the Great's golden mask, rightly believed to be used by the Ring for smuggling high tech contraband from Damascus. Chuck rescues him, unwittingly helped by new Buy more colleague Hannah, and the pair of them is hired by the museum director for the opening night. Shaw feels Chuck is ready for more responsibility and teams him up with Sara again. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


When in the museum computer room, Hannah, played by Kristin Kreuk, notices Agent Shaw, played by Brandon Routh, on the monitors and asks Chuck what his ex-girlfriend is doing there with a ridiculously good-looking date. Chuck replies with "Ridiculously good, him? Him? Nah. Yeah, if you're into that strong kind of Superman type of a guy". Routh played Superman in Superman Returns (2006). Kreuk played Lana Lang, girlfriend of Superman, in Smallville (2001). See more »


After Hannah's packed up the Nerd Herd computers in the museum control room, she turns to confront Chuck. The 2nd laptop bag, on her right shoulder, disappears and then never returns (likely an awkward extra prop for the actress and eliminated between takes and then forgotten/ignored in post-editing).

Daniel Shaw: Any questions? Concerns?
Sarah Walker: You mean other than us bringing a civilian on the mission?
John Casey: I do have some new tranq darts I'd like to try out.
Chuck Bartowski: No. No. I can handle Hannah. Besides she can cover for my in my Nerd Herd duties in case you guys need to call in the big guns... That would be me... When I say big guns, I'm referring to the Intersect. To myself. Do I need a flash? Glad we had this conversation.

good funny stuff, and well...
8 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Love the fact that Hannah followed saying "you heard the boss, nerd herd er", Morgan, "ok good carry on to hey wait a minute I am the boss, also wait I did not get this how did you", cant fig out how and why Chuck is leaving on this nher that did not "come into store" by person or phone.

At the museum, Casey tells Chuck that Shaw was trying to "borrow" mask that the ring uses somehow, and he missed, though do like his removing of his well mask in defeat, saying please tell me the intersect isn't busy, though technically didn't need the intersect just needed Chuck, hmmm think he did not want to ask for Chucks help ? as seems he never brought Chuck a coffee, though did at least 1 for Casey. Now here comes Hannah to "help" with whats happening, no time for her to leave, Shaw only has couple minutes of air left before he dies, Shaw rescued, close "call" maybe as Chuck has to come up with why he saying no and talking to "computer", and so Chuck and Hannah hired to for the night at the opening of special display at museum, Shaw says it'll be up to them to help get the mask.

Hannah sees Sarah at museum with Shaw, and asks about it all after she and Chuck kiss, he going round the subject till as watching who is all there "flashes" on someone who is ring, makes lame excuse, goes tells Shaw/Sarah, Shaw says the guy will remember as you tend to not forget who sets face on fire, so Shaw says abort but Chuck is like I can do, so he and Sarah go to get mask, and all the while Hannah is watching, not understanding what is going on, till computer goes on the fritz, thanks to Chuck as he had to so they could get mask, course does not go smoothly, and Shaw and Casey have to work against Hannah to keep it on the fritz till she disconnects, Chuck and Sarah just manage to switch masks and get out. Of course while Hannah was having said probs, Sarah and Chuck had theirs, with having to knock out someone who too wants mask, ring.

Morgan and Ellie still trying to figure out whats been going on with Chuck, and Morgan following Chuck to get answers but Chuck disappearing, what ?!? now has Morgan really confused.

Chuck takes charge, Sarah oh ya Shaw too are dying, poisoned by what was in mask, suit up to Casey, as there will be an antidote to poison at the museum, which is where he was and has to go. Hannah has been tricked into same vault room and has less than a hour, so rescue her and get back to save Sarah. Shaw admits to hitting on Sarah, and during there conversation Sarah is fading faster and room clears so Shaw shoots doors open, Shaw picks her up and they both head to museum, as both know there really wouldn't have been time for Chuck to get back...the trick with another fake mask worked well mostly as he spies Shaw, the ring know he alive, and the rescue of Hannah, she cant believe she safe and alive with Chuck, he saved her, so she "forgives" him. My thought(s) why would this "assistants assistant" lock her in this room in the first place and why was Chuck there along with Sarah and Shaw plus if Morgan was boss over Chuck yet Chuck seems to do his own thing and be boss plus the plane, the whole even meeting on the way to Paris, well I would be wondering what really was going on.

Ellie and Morgan spying on Chuck, who is "sneaking" round the store, catches Chuck making out with Hannah, Ellie "relieved" Morgan acting relieved but, 1 its the girl he liked, but the look on Morgan face, says he don't buy it or at least not all but what more can he scary ring place, well sorta "rude with a hint at scary" as they shot the one who had his face burned.
