Chuck kicks off a new mission next week, as the NBC series airs the first of a back-end order of episodes it didn't receive until this season had already begun.
How will previously-announced guest star Robin Given play into them? Producer Chris Fedak tackled this question, among others, in a new interview with TV Line. Regarding Mike Tyson's ex-wife, he said:
She comes into our story in episode 16 and she very much speaks to the mythology of the show. After episode 14 and 15, which are both really fun standalone episodes, we bring back the mythology and what’s happening inside the bigger Volkolff arc - and Robin’s character factors into that.
She plays a kind of a foil of sorts to Chuck. But she also knows a lot of things that Chuck doesn’t know. She also has a lot of secrets that are even kept from Gen. Beckman. So it’s an interesting deepening of the spy world.
Lauren Cohan will also show up on episode 16, possibly as Volkoff's daughter. Tune in and find out!
