Next week on "Chuck", CIA agent Daniel Shaw (guest star Brandon Routh) assigns Chuck to his first solo mission in Paris, ignoring Sarah and Casey's wishes. During the flight to France, Chuck befriends Hannah (guest star Kristin Kreuk) and flashes on another passenger - the imposing Hugo Panzer (guest star "Stone Cold" Steve Austin).
The arrival of Kreuk as Hannah is another obstacle in Chuck-Sarah relationship beside Routh. Creator Josh Schwartz said previously, "They are obstacles for Sarah and Chuck but I think we just didn't want to bring in characters to merely be obstacles. I think that you'll find the way they interact in the spy story lines and certainly the case with Brandon's character, is going to reveal complications and secrets throughout the season."
For one thing, Kreuk in fact is a member of Nerd Herd and will wear the uniform. She's going to aflutter multiple hearts, not just Chuck's.
"Chuck vs. First Class" will air on Monday, January 25. Also in the episode, Casey helps Morgan battle Jeff and Lester for control of the Buy More.
