Storyline

While Brandon is in DC, th team is assigned to test the CIA HQ security by attempting a break-in. Casey abuses the occasion to steal a top-secret pill from a locker, as demanded by his former special ops mentor, Army colonel James Keller, who changed his identity, originally Alex Coburn. Chuck saw him and jokingly informs the general, who has Casey arrested as traitor. The Intersect realizes Brenner is a Ring recruiter, so Chuck tells Sara who helps him free their friend. After he confides Brenner's civilian leverage, the trio comes to their rescue. Written by KGF Vissers

Another great episode of Chuck
26 February 2011 | by ntran_nguyenSee all my reviews

Right when I had a slight feeling that Chuck is not funny anymore, I saw this episode and everything seemed to be right again. To me, the most amusing scene was when Chuck thought that finding the missing Laudanol pill was simply a test. He immediately turn in his partner, John Casey: "Guilty, he did it!". Oh, that is the Chuck I love! I also think that it is a very imaginative way of accusing a serious man like Casey without bringing drama to a comedy show like Chuck.

Another hilarious scene was when Chuck and Sarah managed to pass 15 levels of CIA Security ... again (to rescue Casey of course). It turns out that it is not as lethargic as they thought, thanks to the funny guy "son of the king". This is a very convenient chance to compare Levi and Strahovsky's heights (because she often wore high-heels all the time). When they stand side by side, I cannot help but think this could be the most beautiful couple in the world (seriously!).

Did I mention that the stunts are amazing in this episode, especially in the scene when Chuck swallowed the Laudanol pill and had a fight with 5 or 6 other men. I cannot say that I like Chuck to be that kind of "warrior" but once again, amazing stunts.

This episode also marked the appearance of Casey's daughter and later Morgan's girlfriend, Alex.
