It's a long time before the October 28 premiere of Chuck season 5. So what better way to spend the time than reading spoilers and dreaming about what exactly they might mean for our favorite spies?

If that's how you want to spend the weeks before Chuck returns, keep reading. We have spoilers on a couple of blasts from Sarah's past as well as on a big-time guest star from the comic-book world.

Sarah's Past Comes Back to Haunt Her
As is befitting of an international superspy with a semi-criminal past, Sarah Walker's history has always been a bit of a mystery. We have met her father (and learned about his crimes) in previous seasons, but that leaves a lot of ground uncovered.

Now it looks like some of the mysteries will be solved in season 5 of Chuck.

According to a report from ChuckTV.net, we will meet both Sarah's mother and her old CIA handler in episode 8 of this season, "Chuck vs. the Baby."

Sarah's mother, named Emma, sounds a lot like Sarah herself -- blonde, beautiful and somewhat distant. Missing from her daughter's life for years, Emma will probably be a pretty disruptive influence in Sarah's life when she returns.

Even more disruptive will be the arrival of Ryker, Sarah's CIA handler. His episode 8 appearance will be about some "unfinished business" between himself and Sarah. Especially when coupled with a family visit, there's no way this can be good.

A Comic-Book Legend to Guest on Chuck
We all know that Chuck loves its guest stars. In season 5 of Chuck, the bar for those guests continues to be raised: Comic-book legend Stan Lee will appear in a cameo in episode 7 of the season.

Hitfix.com reports that Chuck will run into Lee, the co-creator of Spider-Man and several other iconic comic series, in the course of his spy work.

Stan Lee will apparently be playing himself (as he so often does), making Chuck question whether Lee has a secret spy life of his own.
