This week on Chuck! Season 4 Episode 4
Chuck may not be the most action-filled Spy Tv show there is out there, but it’s heartwarming and i love how they normalise the spy’s existence in our everyday world
This week, Captain Awesome & Ellie decide to take a ‘babymoon’ which i think Ellie truly deserves, given Awesome’s unnerving obsession with their baby. He spends more facetime with her tummy than her face. hahaha.
At the invitation of the General (whom Devon saved previously), they decide to jet off with Chuck & Sarah at Chuck’s suggestion… “we can all relax… *pervy look at Sarah* in bikinis *huge smile*” hahaha. and Coasta Gravas is safe, “of course, we have Subway franchises even”
Chuck is still overthinking what happened the previous episode, and Morgan clumsily suggests that he take advice from 101 Conversations before “I Do”, a book written by some schmuck on conversations you should have with your partner before taking the leap into marital bliss.
S: “And i need 30 minutes of complete silence before i sleep”
C: “… which is going to be a challenge with my cuddling needs?”
BUT as predictable as the storyline of Chuck always goes, nothing ever goes smoothly, and Chuck ‘flashes’ and realizes that there’s a Soviet Nuclear Base within the General’s castle. Turns out, the General’s wife isn’t the perfect wife at all and she’s the one who planned the coup, which brings an entirely new meaning to ‘Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.’ LOL
Chaos erupts as the rebels take over the castle, but the General, resourceful as ever, as an escape route planned and casually walks off to his Jet with a few soldiers and Chuck and gang (aren’t they lucky!)
Obviously then his soldiers betray him, and despite Casey’s courageous stand against them, the General decides that he owes Casey his life and smashes Casey’s head with a flower pot before telling his men, you don’t kill him, and i owe you, before leading them off back to Coasta Gravas. not bad for a captured General, huh.
Chuck realises that it’s really just a huge relationship problem that lies in the crux of the issue, and steps in *quite dumbly* in the midst of action to talk them out of it. After some mad kissing, the General and his wife are reunited and the nuclear threat is taken under control. you go Chuck!
Lesson of the Day: You don’t need to read 101 Conversations before “I Do” to fix your relationship, or any other book for that matter. What works is honest and mutual understanding and a healthy respect for your partner’s wants and desires (:
