Last season, Captain Awesome was thrust in the spy world after learning about Chuck's secret life. This season, another character will be joining Team Bartowski, and if you've seen Monday's episode, you know it can really only be one of two people.
Warning: Possible Spoilers Ahead!!!
In "Chuck Versus the Nacho Sampler
," Ellie found a luggage claim ticket from Chuck's mission in Paris. And though Chuck lied to her about it being a surprise because he "secured" the apartment for their use for a week as a proper honeymoon, she remained suspicious of Chuck's actions, not to mention the strange behavior of her husband Devon. And it didn't help that Morgan felt exactly the same way.Entertainment Weekly
's Michael Ausiello hints that one of these two characters will "not only uncover the truth about Chuck's other life, he/she will end up joining him on a mission." The question is: Is it Morgan or Ellie?
wants to throw viewers off course, then Ellie will be the one finding out about Chuck's secret life. Ever since Chuck got involved in the world of espionage, he tried to shield his family from the dangers of his work so bringing Ellie in the loop will certainly be unexpected. Plus, it will also conflict with Devon, who now realizes the sacrifices Chuck has had to make in his real life and decided he would rather live his whole life with Ellie than to give up any of it for a double life as a spy. It sure will be complicated but it also might bring some closure to Ellie's daddy issues now that their whole family is involved in the spy world.
The more obvious choice, however, is Morgan, Chuck's loyal sidekick. He's not exactly the brightest bulb in the porch but he'll make a pretty hilarious companion for Chuck on his missions. Something also tells me he'll get a little more than he bargained for when he gets drawn under Chuck's wing.
