Back home Sarah worries about Chuck's therapy bruises and decides to give him a massage. While there, she does her total Walker thing of white lies followed by sweet true things: "You don't need the Intersect to do great things! You're great on your own." He's like, "But am I a spy?" The answer is No, but she lies and says yes, followed by "But you're Chuck Bartowski! And you do that all on your own!" Everybody gets a medal when Sarah Walker's handing them out.
She runs off to get the massage oil -- should be heated by now, mrrow -- and Riggle appears dressed as yet another ninja, who attacks Chuck and his totally sick naked body with some swords, but still no flash to completion. Because Walker's there to save him, of course. Or because Rob Riggle in Kevlar is distracting to the extreme. Sarah yells at him for awhile, and finally he explains that Casa Bartowski is, like Castle, a psychological safe zone and that Walker ruins everything and that Chuck's going to need real fear. Specifically the PFOD: Pure Fear Of Death. "We need uncut, pure adrenalized fear rocketing through your plasma right now." Death complexes trump sex complexes because they're basically the exact same thing, a.k.a. It's Harder To Worry About Your Dick When You're Worried About Your Neck.
Greta surprises Morgan and threatens to kill Jeffster if they keep fucking with her and following her and stalking her and being so horribly themselves. Instead of giving her leave to do so, or offering to do it himself, Morgan decides to be the hero and protect them from themselves. Sounds like a Buy More B story to me, or what I like to call bleep-bloop time, reserved for the bathroom or to make another plate of hors d'oeuvres.
I totally realize how much it sucks to hate one-third of every episode of a show you claim to love -- watch the show you're watching, not the show you wish you were watching -- but it's only a problem this week in particular because normally you get Ellie and Awesome to balance it out and wipe Jeffster's offensive fucking faces and even worse acting from your brain-palate.
More beautiful smiles and a third cute outfit from Riggle as the General explains how -- against Walker's wishes -- Chuck and Riggle will be going on a mission together, without magic powers or Sarah or Casey. "Is it dangerous?" he asks, and his eyes light up because it's incredibly so. "Chance of violence?" he bounces in his chair, because violence is guaranteed. Walker whines, and the General forces Chuck to verbally say that he wants to do this foolhardy thing no matter how correct Walker is.
