I just started reading I Spy a Duke by Erica Monroe (out Oct. 5th) about a family of spies, working for an organization known as The Clocktower. It is the first book in a series (I’m guessing each of the siblings gets their own story) and I’m hoping it is as good as it looks.
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know that one of my favorite tropes is the Unexpected Spy/Aristocratic Spies. The best part of these books is the the reveal, when the love interest learns that the person they’re involved with is a spy and not just some ordinary person. For today’s Video of the Day, I’ve got two such reveals, both from the same show to the same person. The first scene is from Chuck‘s second season when Ellie finds out that her brother, Sarah, and Casey are all spies.
The second video is from the end of season 4 when Chuck explains to Ellie not only that he broke his promise to her and is now a spy again but also that he is The Intersect. (If you’re not familiar with the show, Chuck was a normal guy, working a dead end job, when he accidentally became a spy after downloading nation security secrets into his brain.)
