At last week’s TCA event, Yvonne Strahovski spoke with TVLine about the upcoming Chuck series finale and gave them just a teeny tease about how the series ends. Naturally Ausiello and Co. are trying to play up any angsty angle possible in their narrative, so I’ll just post Yvonne’s comments, sans commentary:
“I can’t tell you my expectations, because then I reveal what the finale is not.”
“I had very specific things that I thought it was going to be, and it turned out to be not what I thought.”
The final leg of Team Bartowski’s journey “surprised me to the point where I kind of felt like an audience member myself, sitting on the edge of my seat wondering, ‘Oh my gosh, how is this going to get resolved?’”
“There will be a satisfying ending,” Strahovski reassures, “but it’s almost slightly, slightly tragic, the lead-up* to what happens.”
“We’re going to see a lot of the focus on the Chuck and Sarah love story, which is the heart of the show.”
*Emphasis mine, in order to underscore that the wrap up itself isn’t “almost slightly tragic”. If Sarah suffered a miscarriage, I’d say that was undeniably tragic, not “almost slightly tragic.” Again, Chuck isn’t that kind of show.
