  • Chuck and Sarah are on the run to Barstow to save Chuck's Dad Orion from Fulcrum. Casey is promoted to Colonel and told to bring in Chuck and Sarah dead or alive. Morgan is in a pickle at the Buy More as everyone is angry with him.

    In one word... "Awesome". This was a dream episode. Chuck reveals to Awesome that he is CIA, Morgan with Anna escapes the Buy More, Chuck and Sarah get together sort of but in a totally acceptable way, and Colonel Casey comes in and saves the day all the way around in the end.

    Now that the Intersect is out of Chuck's head we will have to see next week what causes Chuck to stay in the program. Will there be a glitch? Who knows but it will be fun to watch the results.

    With one episode left you almost think that maybe the writers know the show might be canceled so they are trying to give it a good wrap up. One of the main things about this show is with the large cast it has to be expensive. Maybe they are going to lose some cast members to reduce the overall cost to make it more attractive for NBC to keep for next season. All speculation on my part.

    The Buy More bits were much better this week. The scenes with Chuck and Sarah were not contrived and very believable. You knew Casey was not going to rat out his team in the end. So we have everyone together for the wedding and Ted Roark (Chevy Chase) on his way to Burbank to ruin everything.

    Chuck, Sarah, and Casey were very successful in there overall mission for this year in that they seem to have virtually crippled Fulcrum all by themselves.

    One things for sure this show survives on the team of Chuck, Sarah, and Casey with the addendum of Elle and Awesome. You have to wonder if they continue the program whether Chuck advances past the Buy More cover to something else. This may have been set up with Morgan possibly leaving.

    Great episode, great ending, totally enjoyable.

    Thanks for reading...
