The Playland Arcade is a video games arcade located at the Santa Monica pier and forms the location of critical plot markers in "Chuck Versus the Sandworm".
Relevance to PlotEdit
Chuck is sent to find Morgan by Big Mike, after he goes missing from work at the Buy More. He finds Morgan at the Playland Arcade playing "Guitar Shredder" with Laszlo Mahnovski, who Chuck identifies as an escaped CIA weapons designer. Chuck quickly attempts to rush Morgan out of the arcade, having flashed Laszlo as being "Considered Dangerous". Laszlo realises Chuck is working for the CIA, noticing his watch, which is later revealed to have been designed by Laszlo himself, and questions Chuck who denies everything. Laszlo then runs from the area.
Later in the episode, whilst Chuck and Laszlo are sitting in a cafe, Laszlo states that he was recruited originally at the arcade, after a CIA agent saw him playing Tetris. He offers a drawing on a napkin as an IOU after Chuck picks up the bill, and this eventually leads Chuck to find Laszlo back at the pier, having stolen Chuck's Nerd Herder. Team Bartowski are then able to foil Laszlo's attempt to blow up the annual Halloween party at the pier.
