Why in the world would anyone finish the series?!
"Chuck" is one of the best T.V. series that i've watched, and that's saying something since i am the worst kind of "TVHOLIC". I think everyone would agree that the final episode on its own is very good, especially the part when Jeffster sang Take On Me, damn that was great!, but the main thing is why is it finished? only 5 seasons? come on!!! Chuck is the best T.V. series of the century! It's funny, great drama plots, have a unique hook, best line up of actors, incredible characters, and best of all, an underdog love story. This is the recipe for the viewers of the show! But what can we do?, right?
Anyway, the open ending is great, it gives the loyal viewers hope that it might continue aside from the fact that everyone will have their own theory on how it really ends. The Orion quote to Chuck from Ellie was awesome! I was really touched by it. Casey going after Gertrude was a nice touch. Ellie and Awesome got an awesome job offer in Chicago which is awesome but not really surprised there Jeffster making it big was the icing on the cake for me, love those two knuckleheads. And most importantly, the Chuck and Sarah love story, the kiss on the beach was hot and the way it ended gave a hint that the series did not really end but was the start of the store telling of Chuck to Sarah of everything that happened with the two of them like a never ending cycle.
LOVE IT! I wish it didn't have to end... :(moreless
It leaves you wanting more, but that's exactly what it should do
I was an avid viewer of the show "Chuck" during it's first 3 seasons, but because of changes in my life, I fell out of touch with the 4th and 5th seasons. It was only after watching Yvonne Strahovski in "Dexter" did I decide to watch the entire series on Netflix from the beginning to the end. I remembered after the first episode why this was one of the few shows I made a point to watch; it was fun, sexy and hilarious. The acting was tremendous, and all of the characters show a depth of character I've never seen in a television show before or after the show's run on NBC. When I came to the last episode, I hesitated to watch it, because I had grown to love the show, and not having another episode to watch beyond it seemed to be bothersome.
I have loved the Chuck and Sarah dynamic throughout the series, from handler/asset to spy partners and eventually to husband and wife. The relationship between Chuck and Sarah was only made to look and feel so real because the chemistry between Zachary Levi and Strahovski was incredible. This is what fans have grown to love as the series has had it's bumps in the road of this fictitious relationship. This is what made the final episode so hard to swallow for so many, but not for me.
The show followed these two through all of their trials and tribulations, seeing them eventually fall in love with each other and look beyond their dangerous careers as spies. But they are spies as we all know, and that is a life of great danger and unknown consequences. This is why the show needed to end the way it did.
Sarah and Chuck knew the dangers of the spy life, that's why they wanted to be done with it, but with one cruel twist, the life they had built together over 5 years was torn apart in 5 minutes. Will they ever be the same? Will Sarah remember how she felt about Chuck? Will they ever be truly back to where they were when they wanted a life together that didn't include spying? These are the questions that fans of the show may never know the answers to (save for a possible movie, which has been loosely rumored), but isn't that the ultimate goal of the writers? We grew to know Chuck and Sarah in the confines of their spy life, while everyone around them in the show was left in the dark about what was really going on (save for those that eventually found out). Isn't it only fitting that as Chuck and Sarah embark on rebuilding their lives together, without the spy life, that we, the fans, are left in the dark about the outcome?
I loved the final episode and love the final scene between Chuck and Sarah. Everything in their life to that point came full circle, only this time it was Chuck asking for Sarah's trust. What better way for a story to end than one that suggests happier times still to come? I for one am happy with the end, even though it leaves me wanting more of the great acting from Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski, Adam Baldwin, Joshua Gomez, Ryan McPartlin, Sarah Lancaster, Vik Sahay and Scott Krinsky. There might be other great shows on television, but none will ever hold a place in my TV heart like Chuck does.
Now I just hope the rumors of a possible movie are true, to get 1 more chance to see everyone together again...moreless
My favourite tv show ends...but not the way I would have liked it to happen
I loved the season finale because it brought back memories of why I started loving the show in the first place. all the little glimpses of the past and the comedic parts with Morgan really showed that the writers didn't forget how to write a great script! like many others I fell in love with Sarah the first time she walked into the buy more ( Yvonne is sooo stunning, gotta love her).
Because I started watching chuck when it was near the end of the third season, I just went though the available episodes within a couple days. the show kept me up till 5-6 am because the plot and amazingness of this show were perfect. like many others I was constantly on edge waiting for Chuck and Sarah to get together...and until season 3 episode 12, which was probably the best episode in my opinion, the writers kept tempting our minds to think that its finally gonna happen. anyways getting back to the subject of the finale, at the end of the first half where Sarah says bye to Chuck I finally had that feeling I had all the way through to s03e12. The feeling that you must find out what happens next and see how they get back together!
Throughout the last hour of my favourite show, they just kept stalling that moment of reuniting the two of them and I was getting anxious because there was like 5 min left and its still not happening :( even though Chuck and Sarah are kissing in the final scene...and even though there were signs that Sarah was remembering things from the past...it still didn't cut it, and I was deeply disappointed. yes we can probably guess that in time Sarah will remember her past with Chuck, and that they will live happily ever after...but since we didn't get to see it ourselves, I feel as though @tvnut77 said it best stating we've been left unsatisfied.
I will definitely miss this show very much, and am more than likely to watch the five seasons over again some time in the future...but I will always miss the missions and comedy that the cast of Chuck enlightened us with for the five seasons of this great show.moreless
Chuck vs. Magical kissed
Chuck Fan Fiction Alternate Ending
Hey I wrote Alternate ending because most of Chuck fans don't like the Series 5 ending so, I made an extended scene for proper ending of the series. This may be 5- 7 minutes. You can make whole scene in your mind. Hope you like it. Unfortunately I am not good in English and especially in dialogues and script writing. So it will be welcome if someone modifies the sentences and grammar and expressions. Please post your comments that you like or not.
The next day after Chuck and Sarah's magical kissed
Inside the Castle, Chuck is walking down from stairs holding a plastic guitar, is sad and broken hearted. He sat on conference room door playing the plastic guitar. At that time Morgan entering castle and saying
Morgan: " Chuck, Chuck, I need you help for surprise plan to propose Ale....... , Chuck What happened ?"
Chuck : " It's gone , It's all gone , The kissed didn't worked , In the morning I found , she was not in the home, she left me, everyone is going to leave me , I am an aloof "
Morgan: " Come on Chuck, Don't think like that, I am with you, I am sure we will find Sarah. Wait Alex is calling me. I am just right back".
Morgan is going to outside suddenly door open and Sarah entered in to Castle.
Morgan (with joy): "Well, Well"
Sarah: "Morgan, will you give us few minutes please, I need to talk with Chuck ".
Morgan leaves the castle. Sarah is coming toward Chuck who is heartbroken playing plastic guitar in the floor of Conference room. When Sarah saw this situation, she remembers this situation when she first confessed her love to Chuck.
(Flashback scene in black white color we saw S3.13, Chuck was sitting holding his plastic guitar and Sarah sit in front of him)
When Sarah remembered these moments, she put her hand to her neck (in her usual way). Then she came near to Chuck and sit in from him in same style as in S3.13. Just think all the expression and dialogue are happening in same way as it happened in S3.13, Chuck vs. Other Guy)
Chuck: "Ok, I know what I look like; I was so stupid that believe in fairy
Sarah: "Chuck, it's
Chuck: "I though magical kissed work, you will remember everything. We will go to be
Sarah: "You are a good guy, Chuck"
Chuck:" I get it, I know you came here for you bag pack, your guns, you can take whatever you want from our home. But I ask you a question, really important question that I like to asked you again, is that Ok, just once for a record, Sarah, Do you still love me?"
Emotions came on Sarah's face and her eyes. But she just keeps silence.
Chuck: "I am a nerd who is holding a fake guitar, like I use fake guns; this is making me complete fool, isn't there.
Chuck: "Should try to behave like real spy"
Sarah (smiling): "Chuck! Yes ".
Sarah "Chuck, I always love you, even before the magical kissed. After that my memory is recovering, I think kissed worked, so Yes,
(Just imagine similar scene as S3.13, "Chuck vs. other Guy". They smiled and kissed.
Chuck: "Wait, wait, why you left me in the morning?"
Sarah: "I was feeling not well, so I went for checkup and I found out that I am pregnant with your child, that's the greatest news I ever heard. I was lying and trying to run away from my self but I couldn't, I have feeling for you means our loved never changes, I am still your Sarah".
They smiled, at that time Ellie and Mary came inside the castle with some conversation, behind them Awesome carrying the baby Clara after him Morgan and Alex.
Awesome: "Look, he is sitting here playing with plastic guitar even Clara don't play with that"
Ellie:" Chuck, Devon and I am going now, we are coming here for good bye, but I am promise we will keep in touch"
Mary: "I know Ellie, unlike me, she can't live without family, and I know she will back to you Chuck"
Finally Casey entered into Castle and Alex saw him and said,
Casey: "I got message from Verbanski, She is in Paris, there is something unusual she founds there, I talked with General Beckman. She calls us in conference
Morgan: "Oh my God, Jeffster is going to perform their first show in Paris"
General Beckman on screen and saw everyone is there.
Beckman: "It good to see you all"
Awesome: "Isn't that awesome".
Beckman: "Casey may be told you about the Verbanski message. She sent us this photo. It could be possible that Ring is reorganizing there. "
She shows a photo which makes Chuck flashes.
Beckman:" I need Team Bartowski to go on mission and give me full report".
Chuck: "Wow, Team Bartowski is back, new mission, Sarah; we are going to Paris again" .
Cuddling with Sarah
Ellie: " Sarah, no mission, no spy thing, you need to take rest completely till the baby will born,"
Mary:" Sarah, If you want a mission , I assign you a mission that remember everything during that time by friends, photos anything If you failed , just remember , I am a trained assassin"
Sarah smiled and kissed Chuck.
Sarah (smiling): "Noted".
Morgan: "Then who will replace Sarah?"
Morgan and Casey both at the same time "No, It's too dangerous"
Alex: "Why not, If my father and boyfriend can do spy things why not me? Also I know how to defend
Mary: "I will become her handler and will train her ".
Alex (jokingly): "I am sure at least I will become a better spy than Chuck"
Chuck (fake anger to Alex): "Excuse me".
Suddenly main screen is disturbing,
General Beckman: "what is happening to the communication, Chuck do you read me?"
Everyone doesn't know what is happening. Then there is a message on main screen
Casey: "Bartowski senior"?
Mary (Shockingly): "Steve?"
Ellie (Shockingly): "Dad?"
Everybody is shocked and looking to the Chuck. Then smile (Typical Chuck's smile) appear on Chuck face.
(Black screen with song Teddy bears Mad Cobra Cobra style)
"My style is di bom digi bom di deng di deng digigi you you?
Liked the episode...very emotional. Just couldn't help feeling cheated when the end credits begin to roll :(
I love Chuck.I love this episode...just NOT as a Series Finale. I love all the seasons for different reasons and I love all the "Possible Series Finales" for different reasons.
2x22-Chuck Versus The Ring
3x13-Chuck Versus The Other Guy
3x19-Chuck Versus The Ring, Part 2
4x13-Chuck Versus The Push Mix
4x24-Chuck Versus The Cliffhanger
All of these episodes could've served as both Series Finales and Season Finales, being written to do so. But this one? Felt like it was leading into a film. "Chuck versus The Big Screen?"
So when Chuck Versus The Goodbye actually came around to air..I couldn't help but feel cheated.
-They removed Sarah's memories of the Past 5 seasons with Chuck
-They removed any character development Sarah has made over the course of the show
AND THEY DIDNT FIX IT AT THE END=/
The writers apparently didn't want to end the show with a cliche' or deux ex Machina, even though Chuck is kind of known to be cliche. Why not end the show with Chuck & Sarah together no doubts? Hoping for a movie? I don't know..
Listen I enjoyed the episode, I laughed, I cried(a lot, thanks writers=p) it's just...hard not to feel cheated by what (doesn't) happen. Even though the final few minutes make it seem Sarah and Chuck are together, (They're still legally married) the show doesn't end on a definite note regarding what the show has been revolving around since the Pilot, which is Chuck and Sarah's relationship.moreless
Like saying goodbye to a life-long friend (spoilers)
Wow, this was very difficult to watch knowing it would be the end. And what an end! I'm sad that people left, though. I was very much hoping Ellie and Awesome would stay and Casey, obviously. He can't just leave the apartment like that! But they did and so did he.
This is by far the most emotional episode of the entire series, even beyond the season 3 finale. Chuck finally gets the intersect, Jeffster gets a record deal, and the ending was less than typical, and wholly unexpected! The beach scene was emotionally intense and kinda leaves you with a question mark where their storyline should be. What's going to happen with Chuck and Sarah?
Well, it's obvious to me that Sarah is still intact, in that she is completely in love with Chuck. They're going to reminisce some more and go back home and everything's going to be ok. They'll still have Morgan and Alex across the courtyard and Casey's just a phone call away. In fact, I can say with 100% certainty that John Casey will be back in two shakes of a lamb's tail. Soon. He'll return soon. Ellie and Awesome will decide that Chicago isn't for them and so the team will use their spy tactics to be rid of the new tenants residing in their old place.
Jeff will accidentally huff gas again and revert back to his old ways, forcing Jeffster to retire early and get rehired at the Buy More where Big Mike obviously stayed this whole time.
Eventually, the team will be needed and General Beckman will convince them to do a - or some - reunion mission.
They all live happily ever thereafter.
I'm going to miss you Chuck. This has been by far the best series on television. EVER!moreless
Great show that never got the audience numbers executives wanted
The series finale was sad in tone due to a character's sacrifice and the loss created by it, and dealing with it was one way of showcasing the moments that through the years made the relationships built both sweet and bitter. This season had to go about wrapping up loose ends as the network called for a finale. As finales go, this had moments for foreground and background characters to have their moments to shine, and the audience to say our last, while remaining true to what we came to love or loathe about them. As for sacrifices, the shows tone is one of promise as well, so what we the audience take away from it can be seen as hope, that their lives continue, and that a new life begins. Its open ended.moreless
