  • This episode centers on Olivia's wedding. The rest of the episode Chuck struggles with Olivia's decision, tries to talk her out of it, seems to accept it and in the last minutes goes after his love.moreless

    This is my personal favorite. It is one of those episodes where characters throw away all the logic and practicality and just go with their hearts' desires.

    Both Chuck and Olivia throughout the series struggle between the reality of their relationship and their ideal view of it or of what it can be. And the episode shows just how much they want that ideal to be true. For the first time in many years Olivia is making a sensible decision and decides to marry a man who's good for her. Her character is so wonderfully illuminated; it is easier for her to disregard her heart when she has to go against Chuck's wishes (the kind of defiance she just thrives on) and she clearly has much harder time letting herself marry for practicality after Chuck seems to accept her decision.

    Even the structure of the episode itself shows the characters. When their love lives are in trouble there is no work, no new cases, no one else's business matters just their struggles. That's why the upcoming wedding is the only focus of the episode.

    The beautifully romantic ending is so full of hope and happiness.moreless
