  • Chuck tries to win back Sarah.

    This episode started out pretty slow, but like all Chuck episodes, it turned out awesome by the end. Chuck tries to win back Sarah before she goes to Washington. Surprisingly, that part kind of bored me. (The restaurant scene). Except for the part in which Chuck says he loves Sarah. A lot to take on, in Sarah's position. The ring operative wants Shaw to come in, he agrees to basically sacrifice himself to capture the ring operative. Unluckily for him, they take out his tracker. BuyMore employees stalk Shaw, since they felt left out that they weren't part of the "Winning back Sarah" mission. Sarah wants to follow Shaw in, but Chuck doesn't let her. He decides to save Shaw. Best line of the episode:

    Sarah: Why are you doing this?
    Chuck: Because I know how much he means to you.

    Wow, that was a great scene. Two big twists in the end: Shaw finds out that Sarah killed Shaw's wife for her red test. Loved how that tied together perfectly. Casey tells Sarah that he killed the mole, not Chuck. Which makes her change her mind about Chuck completely. Shaw interrupts her from going to Chuck, and tells her he has a lead on the ring operative. As far as we know, he is going to "settle an old score". Uh oh, Sarah's in trouble. Great cliffhanger.
