    I am in two minds about this episode. I loved the drama the inclusion of all characters and the overall flow of the episode. The Fulcrum agents were very good in this one. It was a well thoughout plan that worked so well. thier infiltration of Buy More was a stroke of genius and the acting was just great.

    My problem with the episode however is the overall plot was not quite prudent when considering the entire series premise. Chuck is supposed to be based in burbank with all those characters around him and this plot for me ended up suggesting that this is not a good idea. This is the second time that Fulcrum has Identified chuck as the Intersect albeit both times the information never gets to Fulcrum in large (although I wonder how they silenced Lizzie from season 1 Finale). The fact that Ned is still alive and Lizzie as well and given Frank's finding out chuck was the Intersect, this was too much information for the government to keep ignoring and letting chuck remain in Burbank. Also this was the first time that Chuck has now actively put his family's life in danger, even he himself should have realised the need to leave. I am not saying He should have left or CIA should have forcibly removed him, I am just saying the plot came close to making the show's premise look idiotic. The Idea was good but the only reason why Fulcrum is not starting to actually investigate this more and more is only because the writers are ignoring the logical prograssion
