Einerson, also known as "The Icelandic Archer",  is an assassin seen in Chuck Versus the Alma Mater. He is known to acquire crucial national intelligence on commission.

His target, when he comes into Team Bartowski's sphere of influence, is Professor George Fleming, who has copied the information on the CIA intelligence assets he has recruited, and gathered it a disc. These files are the recruitment files for of all the Stanford students he brought into the Company.

Fleming spots Einerson at Stanford and calls for help, then goes into hiding. Chuck is taken along as a friendly face to bring Fleming in out of the cold, but once he spots Fleming, he asks why he was expelled. While they talk, Einerson shoots Fleming in the back. He collapses, knocking Chuck down as well.

Einerson then shoots the note Fleming passed to Chuck from Chuck's hand with the intelligence cache information on it. He then notes Chuck's Buy More ID and leaves before Sarah and Casey arrive. When Casey asked Chuck if he was sure it was Magnus he saw, Chuck responded, "Gee, I don't know Casey, how many psycho archers do you know?"

Einerson follows the clues to Stanford, but he did not realize the numbers for the cache were not an actual library book, but only a 'signpost' to mark where Bryce's old cache was concealed. When he and his team corner Team Bartowski, Casey and Sarah cover Chuck who slips out to call for help from those listed on Fleming's disk. Einerson finds Chuck in the computer lab and is about to shoot him when Chuck dives for cover. The arrow destroys the computer Chuck had been on.

He advances on the unarmed Chuck and takes the disk from him. Before he can pull the trigger, however, one of the Stanford recruits arrives and takes the assassin down, saving Chuck, who retrieves the disk.
