Chuck's nerd herd was prepared for the Christmas shopping rush, not apparently mentally unstable Nathan Edward 'Ned' Rhyerson crashing in his car trough the front glass and taking everyone hostage without clear demands. Awesome is among the hostages with Ellie, but refrains his natural heroism long enough at Chuck's urging. Casey and Sarah fail to extract unwilling Chuck separately and end up hostages, Casey even loses a toe. Police detective Mauser, the negotiator in charge, alas also makes Chuck flash.
