Alan Sepinwall at HitFix has an interview with Chuck co-creator Chris Fedak talking about how he envisions Chuck and Sarah post-finale, the status of the Intersect, how Jeff and Lester escaped death, a clue about what will be in the DVD extended version of the finale, and much more. Here’s an excerpt:
No, it wasn’t the most important thing to me. That was something that we discovered as we went through the process. The way the story laid out, we began to see that it was important that he be given a decision. The idea of using the Intersect to give Sarah her memories back was a beautifully-structured thing: it makes sense, Ellie gets to help Sarah. But in that moment, Chuck has to make a tough decision, and he knows that saving the day is the thing he had to do. That was fundamental to the story. But from an overarcing perspective, looking at the last episode, Chuck putting the Intersect back into his head was not the most important thing to me.
