Main Story Edit

Chuck and Jill are enjoying the honeymoon stage of their rekindled romance, however, Chuck's spy life interrupts when Casey and Sarah inform him that he is needed for an immediate mission to recover a list of CIA Fulcrum agents that Guy LaFleur had apparently hidden in his hotel room before he was killed. Jealousy erupts when Jill meets Sarah and learns that Chuck and his handler must pose as a couple, especially when she sees that Sarah is posing as a seductively-dressed escort for the mission. Chuck does his best to reassure Jill that his relationship with Sarah is just business. When Chuck solves puzzle on a suspicious box that may contain the list, both Sarah and Chuck got sprayed with a pink powder and Casey immediately leaves the room to get equipment. Sarah quickly takes off her clothes as does Chuck and they rush to the bathroom to wash off the unknown powder, fearing a toxin. At that moment, Chuck finds himself in more trouble when Jill arrives to find Chuck and Sarah in the hotel room in their underwear after trying to wash off a suspected bio-weapon. After Jill leaves, Casey returns with some equipment and after testing the chemical, it was revealed to be powdered fruit punch.The team recovers a music box in LaFleur's room, but have difficulty cracking it.

When Chuck tries apologizing to Jill and explains about the predicament he's in, Jill starts to understanding, having known LaFleur's methodology intimately. Chuck blindfolds her to bring her into Castle, where she tries solving the fruit punch riddle. Chuck determines that the box is responds to a High C note in music. Casey helps by singing the note (he was a choir boy), opening a hidden compartment, showing opera glasses. Chuck flashes on them, learning that there is a key to a lock box at the opera. After solving another puzzle, they recover an encrypted flash drive with the Fulcrum list. Chuck and Jill leave for a romantic getaway, during which Jill is apparently kidnapped by a Fulcrum agent and held hostage in exchange for the list. Chuck agrees to the exchange, but first makes a copy of the list with Morgan's copying device. Chuck and Jill embark on their romantic getaway, during which Sarah and Casey discover from the recovered list that Jill is a Fulcrum agent. The episode ends with Sarah and Casey rushing to Chuck's room only to find his watch left behind and the room empty. The next scene shows Chuck and Jill driving away with Chuck completely oblivious to her identity.

Buy More Edit

Emmett is on a personal witch hunt for Chuck, wondering where he goes on "installs". He interrogates Morgan, telling him to imagine that the Buy More as its own country (Buy-Moria), to get some dirt, but Morgan at first refuses. When Emmett threatens the Buy More after-hours poker game to Jeff and Lester, they crack that Chuck confides everything in Morgan. Emmett then approaches Morgan to impose his offer once more but Morgan refuses to betray his best friend. But when Emmett points out how Chuck is hanging out with Jill, it shocks Morgan, since he hadn't been in that loop.

Emmett becomes satisfied and agrees to sanction the after-hours poker games. The same night, Emmett decides to join in. The next day, Emmett has a horrible hangover and Morgan blackmails Emmett with footage of Emmett's drunken stupor in Big Mike's office, which is utterly off-limits after-hours.

Errors Edit

Casey's high C is actually an E.
