Jordana Brewster, who plays the recurring character Dr. Jill Roberts on NBC's spy dramedy Chuck, told a group of reporters that she is returning for one episode. Her previous three-episode arc ended with Roberts incarcerated. (Spoilers ahead!)
"I get broken out of jail," Brewster revealed in a group interview on Friday in Hollywood, where she was promoting Fast & Furious. "I love that show. I love them there. It's a no-brainer. Whenever they ask me, I'm like, 'Of course.' I love the makeup artist, I love the hair people, [star] Zach [Levi] is awesome. It's really easy and relaxed and lovely to work there."
Brewster especially likes the set of the massive Buy More electronics store. "It's crazy how huge that set is," she said. "It's weird. It's like I want to steal DVDs. This place is enormous, and you wouldn't be able to tell. It's just a huge soundstage. It looks exactly like a Good Guys. It's insane."
Brewster was introduced as the college ex-girlfriend of Chuck Bartowski (Levi) and is revealed to be a spy working for the nefarious Fulcrum. With sensitivity to spoilers, Brewster revealed only that Roberts will be set free to work with Chuck, Casey (Adam Baldwin) and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski). "Chuck has something to do with it," she added.
Don't worry if you're only a sporadic viewer who did not see Brewster's previous episodes. "It's pretty standalone," she said.
Brewster added that she shot the episode "a couple weeks ago," and it airs "I think in May. It's like two [episodes] before the finale." Chuck airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
