Why, Chuck, why?!
As if it's not agonizing enough waiting here in limbo for a season-three pickup, season two of Chuck is about to end, and Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) are still not together! And to make matters even worse, Chuck's college girlfriend Jill (Jordana Brewster) is returning this Monday and bringing trouble with her, as always!
But don't count out our favorite superagent couple just yet, because we have exclusive scoop on the future of Chuck (including on Monday's Jill-centric "Chuck Versus the First Kill") from show runner Chris Fedak, and it looks like things might be a'changin'! Whee!
Yes, we do have a glimmer of hope for those of you holding out for that Chuck and Sarah lovin'. When we begged and pleaded with Chris to let us know if Sarah will ever tell Chuck how she feels, he simply stated, "I would say that by the end of the season, Sarah will get her chance." Yay!
But before we get there, let's start with the more pressing question: Why the heck is Jill back? Because, as we've learned, "Fulcrum agents never talk," but as Chris tells us, "Chuck does know one Fulcrum agent that they've captured, and that's of course Jill. But he's also confused by the fact that he now has Jill back in his life. He doesn't know if she's going to betray him and stab him in the back and leave him for dead, but she is the only person who can help him find his dad."
So does Jill agree to help her ex? According to Chris, "Chuck, Jill, Sarah and Casey have to team up to find Chuck's father. Chuck and Jill have to go undercover as Chuck and Jill from back in college, and they go to a family reunion to meet up with person who originally recruited her into Fulcrum, her Uncle Bernie. He's hilarious." And who plays Uncle Bernie? Ken Davitian—that's right, Borat's nudie-wrestling partner!
But it's not all giggles this time around—there's also going to be a big dramatic finale. Says Chris, "'Chuck Versus the Final Kill' is one of our comic episodes, but I've noticed that when we do a funny episode usually our endings are pretty epic. So at the end of the episode, Chuck is forced to make a decision that is going to have a real effect on not only the team, but also General Beckman's perspective of the team." Nice.
