'Chuck' recap: Volkoff. Alexei Volkoff.
Chuck and Sarah leave Volkoff and take Frost back to Orion's secret underground base so they can run the disk to clear Frost's name, but the disk comes up blank. Frost finds something in a box and runs it in front of Chuck. So far, it seems to have wiped out his Intersect, but I really do think there must be more to it, and we just don't see it yet. Just then, Tuttle shows up, all Bond and healthy and clean. But he's not Tuttle; he's Alexei Volkoff. He planned this whole thing with Frost to get himself into Orion's base to destroy it and anyone who knows about it. He also can't quite figure out why Chuck cares so much about pursuing Frost or doing what Orion started, so even though Frost told Volkoff about her husband; she obviously has never told about Chuck. Volkoff and Frost tie Sarah up and leave them in the Orion base with a ticking bomb. But Frost slips a razor blade into Sarah's hand and asks her to protect Chuck. They get out just in time, but every last piece of Orion/Bakula is gone. Or so we think. Until we remember the car. Awesome and Ellie show up to get it, and she reads the note he left her about their secrets and how she deserved better. And, he says, he left her this car for a reason; he's sure she'll know what to do with it. We see a bright green light under the hood; could it be Orion as K.I.T.T.? All I know is it was awfully nice to hear Bakula's voice again, so if his soul has taken possession of this Mustang, that's all right with me.
