As the series nears its close and Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) look to the future it’s Morgan’s (Joshua Gomez) past which comes back to mess up their lives. Not only does he have to deal with than man Alex (Mekenna Melvin) was seeing during their break-up but he’s also confronted with an unsolved mission from his out-of-control Intersect days.

Looking for a safer career to allow them to start a family Chuck and Sarah decide to focus Carmichael Industries on cyber-terrorism and leave the more gun-totting bag guys to the CIA but before they can make the transition they need to clean up one of Morgan’s lingering missions by recovering a pair of Intersect glasses before some very bad people get their hands on them.

The team heads to Vail, Colorado, to discover the mysterious woman on the other end of Morgan’s text is Bo Derek (playing herself). What follows is a humorous series of events as Chuck and Morgan try to get information from a woman who both had rather large crushes on as teens (much to Sarah’s displeasure).

After capturing Bo Derek (who it turns out is a spy) Morgan finally gets some answers to the night he spent with a perfect 10 which leads the team to Derek’s boss, Nicholas Quinn (Angus Macfadyen) who has been searching for the Intersect ever since Bryce Larkin (Matt Bomer) originally stole it way back in Season One.

The trail for the missing glasses leads the team back to Vail to the local Buy More (an eerily similar spot to our pals Burbank home) and a cliffhanger which finds Chuck captured and a new host for the Intersect which should make Chuck’s rescue in next week’s episode very, very interesting.

“Chuck Versus Bo” proves to be one of the season’s best episodes. Aside from the the kick ass final sequence where we see the new Intersect in action the episode also give us Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) hypnotizing Morgan, and a running gag as Casey’s (Adam Baldwin) attempts to throw Jeff (Scott Krinsky) and Lester (Vik Sahay) off the spy trail are never quite successful.
