Morgan Grimes (credit only)


Impressed with Chuck's recent performance, Shaw gives him the lead in a full-danger operation: catching and impersonating mysterious hit-man Rafe Gruber, recruited by the Ring for a yet unspecified killing. Casey gives sniper-cover while Shaw and Sara observe, posing as a couple. Chuck gets the job, but discovers only frightfully late that his target is none other then Shaw, whom he and the Ring duo hiring him spy on, thus learning something about Sara's true identity.

Did You Know?


Chuck Bartowski: I feel like I'm living a lie, Ellie. I used to be able to compartmentalize... these things. But it's like all the time now, it never stops. I fell like I'm not me anymore.
Ellie Bartowski: I think I know what this is about.
Chuck Bartowski: You do?
Ellie Bartowski: Maybe things are moving too fast with Hannah. And... even though you really like her. It feels dishonest. Because the truth is you still have feelings for Sarah. Does this sound about right?

chuck to become...
14 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

So Chuck has to become a "killer", to find out who the ring wants dead. He is also trying to find love with Hannah, while Devon says he wants to not hear anymore about Chucks double life.

The Ring wants Shaw dead, Chuck cant talk to Ellie much anymore and He really does like Hannah but still in love with Sarah.

Chuck is starting to stress, but pulls the "Rafe" act off, he is the real killer, finds out Sarah name is Sam and goes to "kill" shaw as they are being watched. Rafe of course gets away, ends up at the room, kills the 2 that were going to hire him, goes to kill Shaw, and well Chuck and Sarah too. But Casey makes the shot and Rafe is dead, and Chuck is a mess.

Talks with Ellie, but cant really share, knows he has to break things off with Hannah who says she is real good at spotting lairs, and Chuck is the best she has ever seen as she didn't see his breaking up coming. Hmm the best she seen, more to prove Chuck turning into good spy.
