In the season premiere of Chuck, it felt like something was missing, and I finally know what it was: the supporting characters and I realized this episode focused more on the mission if anything else, which I think is the thing this show should stick with it.
A clever surprise with the bullets being in the sequin dress and a nice tie in to Chuck and Sarah's plot, the Achilles heel, in which Chuck starts worrying that him & Sarah are going to breakup when Sarah wont unpack her suitcase. The relationship plots never impress me much, but in this case it did, with it's rather surprising ending.
Who knows, maybe Chuck & Sarah might break up, and the writers will keep them apart until the show ends, which is what a lot of shows do, but for right now, all Sarah has is doubt.
A great mission, and an enjoyable which had a great balance of all the characters, nice to see things back to the norm.
