There’s something reassuring about the predictability of Chuck’s story arcs. As expected, Timothy Dalton comes back as Alexei Volkoff and he’s lost none of his edge as a villain. Volkoff’s daughter also returns as expected.
What’s less expected, at least to me, is how she backstabbed her own father. I didn’t quite like her character when she was first introduced, but she’s more interesting now that she’s taken over the family business. It does seem like she could pull off being the Big Bad for next season (if we have one).
