Life has not been easy lately for Chuck and his friends. They managed to lose the Intersect altogether, narrowly avoided an assassin and saw one of their own get carted off to jail. And, judging by these spoilers, it doesn't look like life will be getting any easier in the episodes to come.

WARNING: As has been mentioned at least twice already, this article contains spoilers. Really, it doesn't have much else. If you're not a fan of such things, don't bother.

What's Next for Casey?
When last we saw John Casey, he was being carted off to prison by Decker for murder.

Considering that Casey was totally guilty (although justified!) of this crime, we can't expect Chuck to blow it off easily. Episode 5 of Chuck season 5, "Chuck vs. the Hack-Off," does indeed make Casey pay. According to the show's executive producer, Chris Fedak, our next glimpse of Casey will be in the slammer.

EW.com published a spoiler-filled snippet of an interview with Fedak about the episode: "You're going to get that prison episode you always knew you wanted," says Fedak. "It's a big deal. One of the things that we've always thought about is when our characters do stuff like shoot a bunch of bad guys, they're killing people. That is, they are breaking the law."
And lawbreakers go to jail.

"Chuck vs. the Hack-Off" will also feature the return of Gertrude Verbanski (Carrie-Anne Moss) and the infiltration of a new age-y cult by Chuck and Sarah. Click here for more spoilers about "Chuck vs. the Hack-Off."

Episode 6 Description
The 6th episode of Chuck season 5, "Chuck vs. the Curse," will air on December 16 and looks set to bring Ellie and Awesome more thoroughly into the spy world. Plus, Rebecca Romijn!

Chuck and Sarah race against time to take down a dangerous computer virus, pitting them against Robyn Cunnings (Rebecca Romijn), a ruthless spy who will stop at nothing to get what she needs. Meanwhile, Ellie and Awesome's date night takes a dangerous turn, and Morgan is sent on a special mission to recover Chuck's P.A.N.T.S.

Do you think that means "pants," or does Morgan just have another impressive acronym to work with?

Episode 7 Description
For once, NBC is getting a holiday-themed Chuck episode timed right. Episode 7 of Chuck season 5, "Chuck vs. the Santa Suit," is a Christmas episode, scheduled to air on Friday, December 23. Will Christmas bring good cheer and presents to Burbank? Or will the gifts be of a more sinister variety?

Short Synopsis (source: Spoiler TV):
Chuck and Sarah learn who is trying to destroy Carmichael Industries; Ellie's Christmas plans come undone; a computer virus threatens to ruin Christmas at the Buy More.

It doesn't exactly sound "merry," does it? On the other hand, hopefully we will be getting some answers about what exactly Decker is up to with regard to Chuck and Carmichael Industries.
