Chuck Recap - "Versus the Lobotomy"
Episode Title: "Chuck Versus Phase Three"
Air Date: Monday, November 22nd, 2010
Sarah, Morgan and Casey are on the hunt to find Chuck and rescue him from the Belgian. Chuck's inability to flash has been a frustration for him and team Bartowski in recent weeks but tonight, his mind is at stake. The Belgian has decided that if Chuck's emotions are in the way, why not simply remove them through a chemical lobotomy?
Chuck's being held by the Belgian (Richard Chamberlain) who wants the secrets of the intersect. Unfortunately for Chuck, he's been unable to flash since his mom visited and did something to break the Intersect in his head. This forces the Belgian to attempt different methods to try and force Chuck to flash.
Meanwhile, Sarah is losing it. She is teetering on the edge and willing to do anything necessary to find and rescue Chuck, even risking an international incident by kidnapping a Thai diplomat and torturing him for information. She heads to Thailand, cutting a swath of destruction across the country and quickly becoming known as 'the giant blond she-male.'
Back in Burbank, Morgan and Casey decide to go after Sarah while Ellie and Awesome discover that her dad left a laptop in the car they found. Awesome enlists Lester and Jeff's help to get it working again while Ellie goes off to work.
In Thailand, Casey and Morgan step in to save Sarah from being killed in the ultimate cage match, complete with a king cobra, but she gets a location on Chuck. They burst in and find that they've already begun to wipe Chuck's mind. Only Sarah can bring him out of it.
Tonight we saw Sarah very raw — after spending the majority of her life keeping her feelings bottled up and compartmentalized, she has really let herself fall in love with Chuck. The thought of him alone, essentially helpless since he can't flash, was killing her. She had a moment with Morgan that actually sent her over the deep end and on the road to Thailand.Continued on the next page
