Chuck is sending in Rebecca Romijn to do a man's job.
"We created a character originally that was just going to be a man, sort of an ominous, scary figure who has a penchant for torture, which he considers his art form," co-creator Chris Fedak says of the former supermodel's guest role on Friday's episode (8/7c, NBC), "Chuck Versus the Curse." "But then we started thinking about it, we were like, 'What if Rebecca Romijn was this guy? That would be scary and sexy.'"
Before we eat that last footlong and pour a 40-ounce soft drink out on the curb, there are 13 more episodes of Chuck left in its fifth and final season, kicking off Friday (8/7c on NBC).
Much has happened to our titular Nerd Herder-turned-spy and his friends, family and fellow agents in the past four seasons. And for the most part, we're fairly satisfied. We've seen Chuck (Zachary Levi) come into his own as a spy and as a man by finally marrying Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski). We've met his butt-kicking parents (Linda Hamilton, Scott Bakula), saw Ellie and Awesome (Sarah Lancaster, Ryan McPartlin) have a baby and even witnessed Morgan (Josh Gomez) find romance.
Sarah Lancaster's life just got a little more awesome.

No amount of five-dollar footlongs will extend Chuck beyond its final, 13-episode season this fall. But series co-creator Chris Fedak tells TVGuide.com that knowing this is the end gives them the opportunity to wrap up its stories in a satisfying way for their loyal, sandwich-filled fans.
At the end of Season 4, we saw Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) finally tie the knot, purchase the Buy More and start their own freelance spy agency. Meanwhile, pal Morgan (Joshua Gomez) got a surprise when he slid on some shades meant for Chuck and accidentally uploaded the Intersect. "You have the skeleton of a new show," Fedak says. So, what's next? Will Chuck and Co. get a happy ending? Read on:
On a sunny day at the North Hollywood Medical Center, Chuck is shooting its Season 4 finale (airing Monday at 8/7c on NBC), in which spy and bride-to-be Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski) is hospitalized — near death — after an attack by Vivian Volkoff (Lauren Cohan). Despite the subject matter, the mood on the set is anything but grim.
"It's a crazy roller coaster of love, and I'm gonna stand on that," star Zachary Levi tells reporters, describing the show's genre-spanning style. He might as well be referring to the cast and crew's camaraderie though.
