Episode Six, "Chuck vs. The Ex"


On this week's Chuck, we finally meet Jill, the ex-girlfriend who toyed with Chuck's heart and ultimately left him for Bryce Larkin (a not-uncommon theme in Chuck's life). She's gorgeous, she's smart - you can tell by the glasses - and she's eager to catch up with Chuck. She's also tied up in this week's mission, which adds some urgency to their unexpected reunion. Ready to talk about it? Just read more.


Jill reappears in Chuck's life just when he's caught himself thinking about her - specifically about the way things ended - while listening to "Jill Mix '03" on his iPhone. Their final moments together looked so painful that I was surprised it was a flashback and not a dream sequence, with Chuck insisting that he hadn't stolen tests and Jill's roommate hollering from the window that Jill was with Bryce now. So when Jill pops up, all sleek and professional and multiple-degreed, Chuck turns on the lying machine to make Jill think his life is awesome. You know, he owns a bunch of computer stores! He owns a hot, red convertible (that he can't figure out how to drive)! He's so popular at one fancy restaurant that everyone knows his name!

Just quite possibly the best Chuck episode yet. Really enjoyed all parts of it, particularly the Buy More guys who were especially funny this week. If you want to get a taste of Chuck, this is your episode. Don't let this show die.

I can't believe that would try to ruin a great name like Guy Lafleur... c'mon people is nothing sacred in this world...
