  1. I can’nt wait .

  2. Sounds exciting. Of course, that’s means we’re closer to learning the title of 5.12…… 🙂

  3. Aw, so I guess that means they turned down the offer to rejoin the CIA? It’s good either way, but its a lot more fun when they have the gear and aren’t worried about backup and stuff. This season needs to go a lot slower! I’m not ready to not have chuck every week 🙁

    • where does it say anything about not rejoining the CIA… just wondering.
      Cause it looked prrrreeeettty likely they were gonna join last time i checked.

      • “Putting those closest to Carmichael industries at risk.”
        They’re still referring to it, which to me means they still own their own company. also, in the sneak peek for “Chuck vs the baby,” they still had “carmichael industries” up on the wall and he still referred to himself as the CEO of carmichael industries.

  4. I wonder if they got there money back?

    • Guessing either the CIA isn’t giving it back, or Beckman is holding the money hostage till they agree to come back. Come on Becky! Give Team Chuck back their hard earned Volkoff funds….. lol

  5. I wonder maybe they can sign some kind of contract to work for the CIA exclusively but as a elite black ops team. So they would still own their on company just get the info an backup for their missions from CIA. It kinda makes no sense for them to go back to being just regular employees with regular salary when they sunk hundreds of millions of their own money into this company. A juicy DOD contract sounds more lucrative.

  6. As I understand it the Japanese love karioke. We heard Sarah sing a lullaby tonight, so will we get a Chuck/Sarah Karioke duet on the Bullet Train?

    Of course with or without a duet, this is going to be a great episode.

    The line “putting those closest to Carmichael industries in danger” – could Ellie and Awesome be on the train?

    Also what’s Casey’s decision.
