Following last night's two-hour season opener, Chuck returns tonight to its regular timeslot at 8pm with the episode "Chuck vs. the Angel de la Muerte." The third episode of Chuck's third season follows Chuck as he tries to use his relationship with Awesome to protect a visiting dictator Premier Goya, who is the target of an assassination.
Premier Goya, played by guest star Armand Assante, is the dictator of a fictitious South American nation called Parador whom Casey attempted to assassinate in the past. Now, Premier has come to the United States to declare that his country will be holding Democratic elections for the first time.
In the past seasons, Chuck has always tried to protect his love ones from his perilous spy life. However, we all know that shielding family proves to be a difficult task for Chuck and "Chuck vs. the Angel de la Muerte" is no different. While Awesome is excited about the prospect of being a spy, Chuck is more concerned about Awesome and Ellie's safety.
