Storyline

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

User Reviews

 
A perfect blend of comedy, action and emotion
25 June 2020 | by neil-walker-safcSee all my reviews

Season 2 is by far the best season and this episode is one of the highlights.

The opening of this episode is superb. Mixing great music, comedy and action and the pace carries on through the episode with a few really good stunt scenes.

We get to see Jeffster for the first time, we see how deep the friendship of Chuck and Morgan is, and we see just how much Sarah cares for Chuck (and Casey for Chuck too! ). I had a few tears at one point.

There are also, as usual, many pop culture references, movie quotes, etc.
