    As Devon deliberates on how he should propose to Ellie, he asks Chuck to hold on to the engagement ring. Chuck locks it in his Buy More locker but returns the next day to discover everything had been stolen from the store, including the ring. Meanwhile, Casey and Sarah find out that the someone has been spying on them in hopes of discovering "the Intersect" and that they had hidden the receiver in Big Mike's large plastic marlin. With Chuck's identity and life on the line, the CIA and NSA decide to have Chuck relocated to a permanent holding cell. Big Mike's four-foot Marlin, Ellie's egagmement ring and everything in Buy more is missing. Lester and Jeff - legendary. I love the scene where Chuck and Awesome are in Buy More - too funny and awesome! Lester and Jess seasl the Marlin and I might add Morgan too. I love Big Mike "WHERE'S MY FISH" - too funny! I loved season one and can't wait to finish season two of CHUCK.moreless
  • The series ends, with Big Mike's Marlin being stolen and spies out to find the intersect.

    The series finalé of Chuck. Was AMAZING! I really enjoyed this episode, there was a mix of emotions from humour to sadness. Fulkrum spies bugged the Buy More and were on they're way to finding out who the intersect really is. When Chuck finds bugs, he tells Casey and the CIA and NSA decide it's time to remove Chuck from his life and take him. Sarah is reluctant to do so, and tries her hardest to protect him. In the end it all turns out good, and Chuck doesn't need to be removed. However, it won't be able to last forever!

    Captain Awesome proposes to Ellie and we see the chemistry between Chuck and Sarah.



    Brill episode, can't wait for Season 2!!!moreless
  • Big Mike's plastic Marlin is stolen and Awesome plans to propose to Ellie. What follows is the most farcical episode yet

    8.9
    Chuck has always had an element of farce about it but this episode thrives on it. It builds as you learn that the robbery of the Buy More is not just by one group of people but everything stolen of importance turns up in one place in the end, namely in the Marlin of the title. Most importantly however is the engagement ring that Awesome gives Chuck to look after.



    Falafel girl is basically Sarah but working for Fulcrum and its good to see her in B***h fights, very entertaining. However as the new intersect was revealed to be nearly up and running a few weeks back I couldn't help but think that General Beckman and Tony Todd had engineered the whole situation. It would definitely be in their interest to have Chuck locked away. Maybe season 2 will shed light on this.



    I loved the fact that Awesome proposed to Ellie. This is definitely the right way to go with the characters as they are the normality in the show. The fact that the whole B plot centred around it made it even more of an event.



    The A plot this week was very farcical and therefore really enjoyable. You knew that the store had been stripped by Casey and Sarah but having Jeff and Lester, falafel girl and Big Mike all involved is funny. Big Mike's interrogations for his $200 bought on Ebay plastic Marlin were very funny. He didn't care that the store had been stripped just about his plastic fish. He was even happy to see it back at the end even though it was parcel taped centre and tail.



    One thing I will say is that I miss some of the peripheral characters. Morgan is less of a a character for not having Anna around and I hope she comes back and I also kind of miss Harry Tang. The best episodes were in the middle of this season and those included Harry T Tang. I'd be lieing if I didn't mention that up till this episode I think the show has been slightly disappointing since Chuck Versus the Imported Hard Salami.moreless
  • The Buy More gets repossessed

    9.3
    Chuck discovers a bug in the Buy More one day, which then has the Buy More repossessed by the CIA (That's who Casey, Chuck and Sarah work for, right?) Any way, they find about 31 bugs in total and they have to relocate Chuck within a certain amount of time as Falcrum are back in action. Chuck discovers who has been setting the bugs, sends an email to Sarah about it and gets taken away to the CIA. before he can go, a member of Falcrum, threatning to destroy Ellie's ring, comes to take Chuck. They beat her, find the ring and Ellie will be Mrs Awesomemoreless
  • The best episode so far.

This was the final episode before the strike and I have to say what a way to end the season I just hate that stupid strike hopefully it will never happen again. well this one was another very funny episode and my favourite so far, lol I'm going to miss the Buy more. I know I say this every review but bring on season 2.moreless
