El Bucho is a restaurant/club which features prominently in "Chuck Versus the Pink Slip".
Relevance to PlotEdit
In "Chuck Versus The Pink Slip", El Bucho is the location of Sarah and Casey's latest assignment to intercept a Ring exchange between a mark whom Sarah is dating as a cover, and a Ring courier (in reality an assassin) named Javier Cruz.
Chuck finds out about the mission in Castle, when he spots Casey looking at intel on the restaurant on one of the computers, and notices a file on the restaurant on the table. He then turns up for the assignment, posing as a Nerd Herd employee. Casey and Sarah are unaware until Casey spots him, and Sarah develops her cover by claiming to the mark that he is her ex-boyfriend who is having trouble letting go.
Chuck is later forcibly removed from the restaurant by the CIA, but he flashes on Javier Cruz and realises he is an assassin, here to kill the mark. He attempts to break back into the restaurant but fails, until a guitar player due to play that night approaches him and he inadvertantly knocks him out, before taking his uniform and guitar, and posing as the guitar player. He flashes on the guitar once inside, and learns to play proficiently, much to the surprise of Casey and Sarah. When the mark offers to take care of Chuck for Sarah, she denies him the oppurtunity, instead asking him to dance.
Casey tries to tranquilize Chuck from across the bar, but Chuck ducks and the keyboardist is knocked out instead. The guitar player Chuck knocked out turns out to be none other than Javier Cruz, and he wakes up, removing his disguise and entering, attempting to shoot the mark from across the room. Chuck notices the laser sight trained on the mark and Sarah and pushes Sarah out the way, denying Cruz a chance to strike.
