    Enjoyed this episode from start to finish. I even enjoyed Ellie in this one.

    I did like the strippers she got that looked like they were spec ops guys. "Is that a gun? oh no..."

    The whole Las Vegas vs Las Vacas was a bit lame, but they needed to get the guys somewhere for the bad guys to chase. I wonder what Jeff would have revealed under the truth serum and they could have had him telling Buy More secrets or something. Or even revealing stuff in the car after they rescued him.

    The knife in the laptop was great and even better when Chuck went to fix it...."all those years as a nerdherder".

    I almost threw the remote at the tv when Awesome took them to Las Vecas and acted like they should have known what he meant. Big Mike was in a suit, for crying out loud.

    Morgan's mom's name is Bologna?

    Vivien Volkoff = worst villain ever.

    Unfortunately Chuck doesn't have the kind of budget necessary to film that sequence in the real Las Vegas :)

    I guess I was wrong. Obviously Ellie wasn't Agent X.

    Good episode except for the blatant Toyota product placement. Chuck can do product placement well, but for some reason with Toyota, they always suck.

    If you call that blatant, then I guess you don't watch Bones. :D

    Are you kidding, Jeff's probably built one hell of a resistance to truth serum to truth serum.

    Loved Casey with Hartley's mother.

    "You're like the Mom I never had".

    Plus Jeff's conception of truth would be tinted by Jeff's conception of reality, which would probably lead to answers that would not be entirely useful.

    Yeah, I thought the same thing about truth serum on Jeff. He was obviously already on something when he wandered back into the camp.

    This was easily the most enjoyable episode of Chuck in a pretty long while. It made me chuckle far more than recent eps have, and I'm so glad that the Ellie charade is over and things are more or less out in the open.

    Terrible Agent X, absolutely terrible. Next thing you know, Vivien will also be a spy.

    He said that as much himself. He didn't say what he was on though.

    That's what I was thinking. It would be pretty funny.

    I was assuming he was on the mushrooms he was talking about when they arrived at the camp area.

    Love the ep! Not much surprised Volkoff ended up being agent X, it explains a few things. Especially why Chuck's mom never killed him (assuming she knew who he was all the time). Volkoff's mom is great, "Like the mom I never had." Classic Casey. Still hoping against all hope (and against most sane reasoning) that Chuck's dad will somehow reappear. There is a wedding coming up.....

    Enjoyed the fact that Casey showed a photo of Osama Bin Laden that he was planning to use as a gun range target -- I assume no one at "Chuck" expected that to suddenly be out of date.

    Maybe out of date, but still great. And with the target portraying a head shot, the CIA really does know how things are going to happen. ;) That was just one element of that whole scene that made me smile - and on the day after the announcement, such great timing. :D

    Comapred to Bones, this was gentle subtlety. Compared to some of the old Subway product placement, this was gentle subtlety.

    Hey, if it keeps Chuck on the air, I can deal with it.

    Any news on renewal yet? I am of the impression the show is still on the bubble.
