Review - Chuck Season 4 Episode 5 Chuck vs. the Couch Lock

Thankfully, "Chuck vs. the Couch Lock" stayed away from ongoing Chuck-Sarah angst, which made for a fast paced episode filled with jokes. With Casey and Morgan as the central characters, Chuck and Sarah take a backseat for once, allowing the other elements of the show to expand without hindrance.

In the end, Morgan's fearlessness--stupidity in some eyes--pays off as he takes out Casey's former teammates and makes sure the gold is safe. Morgan, in turn, gains Casey's respect and it looks like he and Alex are going to be fine.

While Chuck himself is not central to the story, the overall story arc involving Chuck's mother, is pushed forward. There is a distinct possibility that she may on the wrong side--though it's probably not going to play out that way in the end. Still, though, the possibility leaves its mark on Chuck who realizes that he already has a family willing to stick by his side through anything. But his mom calls at the very end and the search will be in full swing again.

Score: 8.9/10
