Popping over to IMDb to find the answer to a niggling question, I noticed that a few guest actors have been matched up with some names we saw on the casting call for Chuck episode 3.10, â€œChuck vs. the Tic Tacâ€. If we connect some dots, did IMDb just spill some beans? Here are the facts:
- Episode 3.10 is a Casey-centric episode, complete with flashbacks.
- Robert Patrick stars as Colonel Keller.
- IMDb lists Clare Carey as playing Kathleen McHugh, described as 40, attractive, sexy, strong and independent.
- IMDb lists Alexandra Bromstad as playing young Kathleen. In other words, Kathleen is part of Caseyâ€™s flashback.
- Hereâ€™s where it gets really interesting: IMDb lists Mekenna Melvin as playing Alex McHugh. The only â€œAlexâ€ in the casting call is â€œAlex Coburnâ€, described as â€œA young Marine. 6â€™ 2â€- 6â€™ 4â€. Athletic build. Brown hair, blue eyes.â€ That Alex sounds male. Was it a feint to throw us off from the real Alex?
- TV Guide revealed that one character has a child.
Put all of that together and what do you get? A woman from Caseyâ€™s past who reappears, with a daughter who is at least 16, possibly older.Â Is Casey the daddy? Or did IMDb screw something up? Or is it too late on a Friday afternoon to be attempting logical thought?
