Michael Ausiello dropped a tease yesterday in a conversation with the show’s co-creator Josh Schwartz. The tease basically states that a new person will show up to form a triangle between some characters we know. I’m not sure I call that a tease. We’ve already had that play out twice with Chuck and Sarah (Lu and Jill) and twice with Morgan and Anna (Anna’s father and Anna’s Triad Boyfriend). This isn’t anything new unless we’re talking about a serious triangle here.
Which brings up that Chris and Josh totally dig Natalie Martinez and Natalie was always meant to show up in season 1 and be the 3rd part of a Chuck-Sarah triangle. Does this mean the incredibly gorgeous Natalie may finally be finding her way onto the show? God, I hope so. The character was supposed to be a lot of fun and Natalie is just plain hot. Having her and Yvonne on the same show? Male viewership just went up.
The triangle makes sense too if Chuck and Sarah can just admit their feelings. This could be the first bump in the road. Plus, I believe they’ll have to hide it because Chuck is an asset again. If they have them back to the old “we can’t be together,” line it’s going to hurt the show because it makes no sense. Hook them up and then let things try and tear them apart. That would be character development at least.
All these people are getting interviews with Josh or Chris and none of them seem to be asking the other all important question: What about the Buy More? When last we saw our favorite Nerd(s) they quit. With Morgan boldly leaving the store shirtless and Casey revelling in quiting. We now have none of the main characters: Chuck, Sarah, Casey, and Morgan working at the Buy More. How are they going to impliment it back in? Should they?
Personally I think the whole cast would jump on the idea of moving all shooting to Hawaii so they can follow Morgan’s dream. Heck give Chuck a Ferrari and it’s another 80s throwback!
