Chuck Episode Recap: "Chuck versus the Beefcake" Season 2, Episode 15

So the saga continues with the Fulcrum folks as Brad White (from "Chuck versus The Suburbs") was grave robbed by a mysterious man for some secret info in his belt buckle. On the relationship front Chuck realizes Sarah and he won't become a couple so he breaks up with her. The mission? To intercept the Fulcrum agent who stole the belt buckle. Oh and did I say the said Fulcrum agent is good looking? It looks like Sarah has will have to use her female persuasions to get the goods. It's just another day in spy town and another chance to potentially see Sarah in her sexy undies. How will this affect Chuck? Is he really over the break-up?

Casey certainly takes advantage of Chuck's sensitivity despite the recent break-up. He's kind of salt on an open wound. All three are stationed at a swank hotel waiting for the Fulcrum agent to arrive. Sarah meets up with the Fulcrum agent and they immediately take it to his suite. As both Casey and Chuck monitor Sarah's situation via an earpiece, things get hot and heavy things until he flashes on two other Fulcrum agents who are there to potentially meet up. Casey goes off and hits his own snafu as he partakes in gunfire with the agents. Meanwhile, disgusted, Chuck has taken off his earpiece and cannot hear Sarah's secret code for help.

Luckily a waiter comes down to the bar where Chuck is drowning his sorrows and asks for Crystale — the secret code for help. While Casey is busy shooting up the hotel hallway Chuck runs to save Sarah. He kicks in the door to find Sarah in sexy lingerie straddling but subduing the Fulcrum agent. As Chuck and Sarah take him to the rooftop parking to drive back to Castle, a fighter helicopter appears and starts shooting at them. Sarah runs off to draw their fire but it looks like a losing battle.

The Fulcrum agent tells Chuck he's actually MI-6 undercover and if Chuck doesn't let him go Sarah will certainly get killed. Chuck believes him and the agent grabs 2 guns and starts shooting a nearby gas tank. There is a terrific explosion that catches the helicopter that also explodes. Just then Casey, unaware of the new developments, knocks out the agent. Back at Castle the General apologizes and orders a lockdown for the MI-6 agent until she can confirm a few things. Seeing the potential for the hot and heavy escapades to continue between Sarah and the agent, Chuck offers his apartment for the guy but Sarah tells him they'll both just stay in the office. The MI-6 agent, Cole, tells Chuck he's definitely going to butter her muffin.

Back at Castle, they find out the belt buckle actually harbors a large microchip of sorts. To get the information off the chip you need a playback device. That was Cole's original mission. Chuck offers to break into the chip back at Buy More. Everyone disagrees and they decide to meet up with more Fulcrum agents to get the device. Chuck takes the chip back to Buy More and somehow decodes it. However, he also sets off a homing device. While Casey, Sarah, and Cole meet up with the Fulcrum agents, the homing device goes off and Fulcrum figures out this is a set up. They apprehend Sarah and Cole and go after Chuck. As the agents walk into Buy More Chuck flashes on them but they get to him before he can hide the evidence. They're going to have to get the information the "hard" way.

When was the last time you were tortured? Well, for Chuck that would be never so you can see why he complains so much tied up and hanging by his arms in chains. Chuck tells Sarah and Cole he was on the chip. That's what the Fulcrum agents were trying to get — info on who is the Intersect. So the Fulcrum agents try to get the info by torturing Cole first. The leader, a tough no nonsense woman, whips Cole bloody with a fierce leather talon. Not much for even watching torture, Chuck confesses that he is the Intersect. Not wanting to put him in danger, Sarah tells them Chuck couldn't possibly be it; he's just a computer technician. Cole confesses he is the Intersect. Chuck adamantly admits they are both wrong and wants to submit to torture to prove it. The female Fulcrum grabs a very long syringe filled with deadly poison and brings it very close to Chuck. Chuck, tied to a wheelchair, leans back a little too far and passes out, hitting his head. Just as she's about to administer more torture, Casey and team break in cornering the agents and the female ringleader. Casey tells her she now will tell them all about Fulcrum. She refuses and injects herself with the syringe, committing suicide.

Back at Castle, Sarah tells Chuck how brave he is and how he's been able to sustain torture by enduring their fake relationship. Cole, being the suave and sophisticated (with a British accent no less) spy tries to persuade Sarah to go away with him to Fiji or at least a vacation somewhere. She refuses and says she has to work. There is a moment between them and Cole takes the chance to kiss her. It's passionate. And, of course, Chuck watches on the Orange Orange surveillance camera. 

That's the final straw for Chuck and he decides to move out of his apartment with Morgan, who is also trying to get out from under his own situation. As they break the news to Ellie and Captain Awesome, Cole is being driven away in a limo when someone dressed like a highway patrol officer drives up beside the car and shoots the driver and captures Cole. Sarah rushes to Chuck, who is with Morgan, Ellie, and Awesome and pulls him out. Because Cole knows Chuck is the Intersect he has to go into 24-hour protection. They have to get back together and even move in together. Sarah grabs Chuck and hugs him telling him they have to sell this to the onlookers — Ellie, Morgan, and Awesome who are looking through the window.

What did you think about the episode? Will Chuck and Sarah ever have a chance?
