Without divulging into spoiler territory, Chucky’s decision to target the White House is as hilarious as can be expected, and he infiltrates the first family with ease by becoming the new favorite toy of Henry Collins (Callum Vinson), the youngest child of President James Collins. The Commander-in-Chief is played by Devon Sawa, making this his fourth role on the show. The running gag of having Sawa return as a new character after being killed off each season will never grow old, and seeing Chucky playfully turn the Oval Office into his personal murder room is just perfection. The American government is already a circus, what’s a little fake blood and guts and a cackling doll in overalls?
Jake (Zachary Arthur), Devon (Björgvin Arnarson), and Lexy (Alyvia Alyn Lind) are once again coming for Chuckyy, while still trying to navigate the events of the prior seasons (which include Chucky killing their families). Lexy’s little sister Caroline (Carina London Battrick) is still missing, and given her affinity for Chucky, (and the fact Tiffany took her at the end of season 2) the trio knows exactly where to find her. They reunite with their teacher (now caregiver) Ms. Rachel Fairchild (Annie M. Briggs), who has witnessed Chucky’s power firsthand.
Season 2 was a bit chaotic with meta-brilliance and often flew off the rails (not a bad thing), but in season 3 Chucky is on a mission. He’s made some shocking revelations about the power of Damballa (the reason he inhabits the Good Guy doll in the first place), and it’s caused a shift in his priorities. This allows Dourif some of the biggest range in his vocal performance as Charles Lee Ray since “Child’s Play II,” and if he doesn’t get a lifetime achievement award when all is said and done, there’s something seriously wrong.
