Chuck‘s final Christmas episode returns a familiar face to the show when the identity of the man behind the conspiracy to destroy Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi) is revealed to be none other than Daniel Shaw (Brandon Routh).
Morgan (Joshua Gomez) finally goes all the way to the Dark Side by betraying the team and his best friend by stealing the data for their latest mission and agreeing to work for Verbanski Corp. The Intersect that was left for them didn’t come from Beckman (Bonita Friedericy) and now it’s destroying what little remains of Morgan’s original personality.
There’s something wrong with Morgan (Joshua Gomez). The longer the Intersect stays in his head the more it appears to be altering his personality. It’s not just his new abilities going to his head, as Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) and Casey (Adam Baldwin) first assume. The Intersect is changing their little buddy – and not for the better.
As the show returns for its fifth (and sadly final) season we catch up with the newly created Carmichael Industries. Our spies have left the government and set up their own shop as high-priced spies for hire who, as they put it, are still working out some kinks. But that’s not the only change as Chuck (Zachary Levi) is still dealing with the fallout from last season’s finale which saw him stripped of the Intersect and, even more shocking, saw it put in his best friend.
Chuck returns for a Fourth Season with Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Sarah’s (Yvonne Strahovski) relationship in full swing, a new girlfriend for Morgan, the birth of a new baby Awesome, and the return of Chuck’s mom (Linda Hamilton). More than previous seasons, Season Four is geared towards ongoing multiple episode arcs such as Chuck’s search for his mother and his battle against Alexi Volkoff (Timothy Dalton) and his a criminal empire, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of fun along the way.
The Fourth Season missions include a trip to Milan to take a sexy killer (Karolina Kurkova) during Fashion Week, to prevent a nuclear war Sarah and Chuck play marriage counselors to Costa Gravas’ Premier Alejandro Goya (Armand Assante) and his wife (Tia Texada), the team fakes Casey’s (Adam Baldwin) death, Chuck goes on a mission without the Intersect to retrieve a diamond in Switzerland, and for Halloween the team takes down a scientist (Robert Englund) with a weaponized fear toxin.
