  1. this could be a realy interesting episode for chuck and sarah,once again sarah takes extreme risks to help chuck which in turn shows us her love for chuck.Also we could see sarah showing that she realises that she cant always do things by herself and reaching out for chucks help.this could be realy benefitial for them xxx

  2. I wonder what the undercover role is, though, and how many episodes this will stretch.

  3. why do i feel like this episode is going to end up with sarah in the hospital?

    • i was thinking the same thing. that’d be pretty cool though. since they’ve become a couple, i kinda thought it would be cool to see one of those 2 in the hospital like crying or something cause the other’s hurt. totally awesome scene if that were the case:-)

      10 DAYS chucksters!!!!

  4. So I guess this is why Yvonne was shown wearing all black leather and a black wig outside the prison. Looking forward to another Dalton & Hamilton episode.

  5. Since there were originally 13 episodes I wonder if this is a buidup to the end of Timothy Dalton’s evil character in episode 13. Dalton’s wide ranging acting skills have made him a really fun bad guy. The charades were absurdly funny even when he was projecting evil. He is really skillful. Linda Hamilton has also done an excellent job.

    • Pulling for Sarah!

      I think it would be great if Volkoff escaped/survived and come back later in the season. Timothy Dalton really plays a great villain you love to hate. Mama B’s been undercover for over 20yrs and if it had not been for Chuck looking for her, she probably would’ve been for another 20. I don’t understand how they can take down Volkoff so easily.

  6. The best episodes seem to be when the stakes are the highest, especially between Chuck and Sarah. And this one looks to be spectacular.

    • I aggree also the dynamic is really awesome! your totally right ! love those 2 together in action! 😀

  7. Danger, undercover intelligence, teamwork, defeating a fatastically wriiten/acted baddie. You know this has to be a great episode!

  8. Up until this season F&S had problems developing storylines on a regular basis without the dreaded angst, I hope this or some future episode does not separate our couple (S&C) It would almost seem like fan betrayal at this point. Lets hope they stay together, there are plenty of great storylines that they can explore as a couple.

  9. Meg says: I hope you are correct–I thought they basically said no more
    Shaw type guys and did not address other problems causing Sarah to move out. I am not sure about the Shaw comment. Perhaps Mel could set us straight.

    • They said they’d learned their lesson about putting other love interests between Chuck and Sarah, not a specific type of love interest or character.

  10. Looks like Alex appears in this episode but no mention of her in the summary. I’d like to see her character get more involved with Team Bartowski.

  11. Mel you said a lot with your dancing. Guess I will sit back and take a pill.

  12. I’m intrigued by the fact that Mekenna Melvin is in this one. This episode seems to have a pretty big focus on the spy world. Maybe this is the episode where she finally starts going on some missions and becomes part of the team. Before S4 premiered, F&S said that her showing martial arts skills in late S3 had plenty of reasons behind it. And since Morgan’s gradually becoming a better spy, it would be fitting for her to be part of the team now.

  13. wandering if it will be a baby girl or boy?

    and what names
