'Chuck' Wins One, Loses Another
Remember when Shaw and Sarah went undercover at the unveiling of the mask and Shaw claimed that the mission needed to be aborted because the Ring operative in attendance would make him because Shaw is responsible for the burns on his face? Well, it turns out that that may not be the full story. In the closing moments, aforementioned Ring operative met with Ring leaders and disclosed that he saw Shaw. The leaders seemed very surprised by this revelation. It may be that Shaw is a double agent and he didn't want the Ring operative to see him there because he's suppose to be with the Ring. Or maybe he's a former Ring agent and he's trying to hide from them. Or perhaps he really did burn the guy's face and now he's the Ring's enemy #1. It's hard to say right now, but I think he is some level of dirty. It's just the level I'm not sure about... yet.
Speaking of suspicions, I'm a teensy-weensy bit suspicious of Hannah. I feel bad because I really like her, but you never know who is and who is not a spy on this show. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she is exactly who she says she is, but I won't be surprised if she turns out to be more involved in these spy games than just an innocent civilian. Although, she seemed genuinely caught off guard at the museum (both times) and she wasn't able to get herself out of that room. The Ring didn't seem to recognize her, so that works against her being a bad spy. Like I said, I'm hoping she's not involved. Of course, things between her and Chuck can't end well either way. She'll never understand and he'll never be able to explain it. Doomed, I'm afraid.
Chuck is back Monday nights on NBC. If you missed this week's episode, you can watch it for free at Hulu.com.
