While most Chuck episodes fall under "easy listening" and are getting quite repetitive, this one was a true gem. I guess all we needed was a nother character in the mix to shake things up, and that was agent "superman" Cole. The quiet antagonism and Sarah's choosing was, obviously, the centerpiece of the episode and it was written and acted VERY well. The final garden scene between Sarah and Chuck was especially revealing. The tough boys played their parts well; Cole fit in great and you really have nothing more to add to Casey's character as he is - he plays it to perfection. The "Buy More skit", as I choose to call it, i.e. the release of tension that we seem to get weekly now in the shape of a Buy More secondary problem was also one of the better ones. The final scene added to seriousness of Chuck's character, which I particularly welcome - because along with being a nerd, he IS a very clever guy and that should be exploited.
All in all, finally an episode I can really get behind!
