Considering all of the questionable activities carried out by the cast of Chuck
over the years, it's actually kind of surprising how little time has been spent in jails. Of course, the government sanctioned and covered for most of the spy activities before. That's all gone now. It was only a matter of time before someone on Chuck
season 5 was incarcerated.
Check out these video's from this Friday's episode, "Chuck vs. the Hack Off" to see what life is really like for Casey and Lester in prison.
WARNING: This episode hasn't aired yet. Ergo, these are spoilers. You are not allowed to yell at the author about spoilage. That's just not nice.
The first of the two videos seems to depict the first meeting between Casey, Sarah and Chuck after the former gets sent away for murder. Check it out below:
It's nice that the show addresses the fact that a standard county jail doesn't exactly have the proper facilities to contain a man like John Casey. He could easily escape -- and all of the spies know it. Fortunately, Casey is smart enough to know that escaping would a) make him a fugitive and b) might actually play into Decker's nefarious plans.
What are those plans? No clue, but it seems likely that Casey's imprisonment will bring at least a few of the answers.
The second video may just follow immediately after the first. By some crazy, random happenstance, Casey and Lester are incarcerated together. Of course, this necessitates a group trip to visit the inmates:
Jeff, still sober without his carbon monoxide-poisoning, is the very picture of reason here. Lester, still insane, is not. The man can't even promise to avoid future poisonings in order to get out of prison!
Actually, that's not a surprise. Lester would totally poison someone else if the fancy struck him.
Lester's comments -- murder threats aside -- also seem to be setting up one of this week's guest stars, Danny Pudi. Based on photos of the episode, Chuck's latest guest will indeed be a replacement Indian while Lester languishes in jail.
