The Official Chuck Season 5 Premiere Synopsis
NBC has just released the synopsis for episode 1 of the final season of Chuck. The episode, "Chuck vs. the Zoom," will air at 8pm on Friday, October 28. Check out the synopsis below:

AS CHUCK BEGINS LIFE AS A SPY-FOR-HIRE, HE MUST ADJUST TO HIS NEW BUSINESS, NEW THREATS, AND A NEW INTERSECT -- HIS BEST FRIEND MORGAN GRIMES -- MARK HAMILL AND CRAIG KILBORN GUEST STAR -- Without the Intersect in his head or the support of the CIA, the world of espionage is a much more dangerous place for Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi) and his team of freelance spies. To start, Carmichael Industries takes on a slick, rich thief named Jean Claude (guest star Mark Hamill), and a conniving investor, Roger Bale (guest star Craig Kilborn), who has stolen money from some of the world's most dangerous people. Meanwhile, Morgan (Joshua Gomez) helps Chuck with a special surprise for Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski). Back in the Buy More, Jeff (Scott Krinsky) and Lester (Vik Sahay) have taken things to another level with their latest scheme. Sarah Lancaster and Adam Baldwin also star.

What does this tell us about the Chuck season 5 premiere?
  • The guest stars of the week (Mark Hamill and Craig Kilborn) are bad guys, much as we suspected.
  • The new cases may be dealing more with international crime and business issues, instead of national security.
  • There will be some tension between Chuck and Morgan over the Intersect (but I'm sure they'll be fine).
  • Nothing ever changes when it comes to Jeff and Lester.
